Lessons at Cedar Ridge are taught by instructor Stephanie Davisson, who brings with her a love and passion for the Arabian horse, along with over a decade of instruction experience helping riders achieve their ultimate goals. Lessons are an hour long and include time spent both tacking and untacking your horse, with the help of an instructor. In a typical lesson, the rider will spend 15 minutes tacking, 30 minutes riding and 10-15 minutes untacking. Lesson are held year-round with an indoor heated arena for comfort and convenience in the winter months. We offer lessons for all levels of rider, from those who want to learn the basics to those who want to own a horse and compete at the National Level. Our riding program is designed to teach not only riding, but the art of horsemanship, from the hooves up. We offer private, semi-private and group lessons and teach Monday through Saturday.
Please contact Stephanie via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or to arrange a lesson.
"In the Cedar Ridge Riding Club, our goal is to help you achieve yours!"
“I had high expectations for a riding program for my daughter. I wanted her to understand that riding didn’t mean just show up and sit on a horse for an hour. I wanted her to understand the responsibility and joy of working with such a wonderful animal—both in the ring and out of it. I also wanted her to experience the “learn something new every time” wisdom you get on a horse with a teacher who knows that and shows how to manage that experience. Of course, I wanted my daughter’s confidence to grow while doing all of this.
“I know—it’s a tall order! However, my own experience taught me all of this. And guess what? The Cedar Ridge Riding Program is exactly what I had in mind for my daughter! She is experiencing everything I had hoped. So, because of this I decided to get back in the saddle again after 20 years to experience it too!”

“We love the Cedar Ridge Lesson Program! My two girls have been riding with the lesson program for over five years. I have watched them grow in discipline, focus and confidence. As a mom, the “teenage” years can be tough. Using what they learned riding with Cedar Ridge has helped them make it through successfully. Having the girls connect with Cedar Ridge has been one of the best decisions we, as parents, have made.”

“Riding at Cedar Ridge Arabians has provided my daughter with many lessons, not only in the arena, but outside of it as well.
“As a parent, I continue to experience joy as I watch my daughter build the important life skills of confidence, determination, and focus.
“Our family feels so much gratitude for Cedar Ridge Arabians, as we observe the unfolding of a special relationship between trainer, student, and horse!”
—Genevieve Calvillo, CRRC member since 2008
“Cedar Ridge Arabians is an exquisite facility! I am so impressed by the lesson technique and the instructor’s genuine interest in developing the rider’s skills. My 8-year-old daughter has become a confident rider in less than a year worth of lessons!”
—Kim Pellici, CRRC member since 2010
“We are absolutely thrilled with the Cedar Ridge Arabians’ riding lesson program. The lesson instructor Heather and Cedar Ridge have been simply fabulous!
“The Cedar Ridge riding lesson program is not just about learning how to ride a horse; it is also about learning valuable life lessons. Beyond learning how to ride, the students learn about responsibility, professionalism, horsemanship, fairness and humbleness. They also learn all there is to know about horses and how to care for them. We fully believe not only has this program satisfied our daughter’s passion for horses and how to ride English style, but it has helped her to grow as a person. As Heather says, ‘It is not about the ribbons, it is about the ride.’
“We continually recommend the Cedar Ridge Arabians’ riding lesson program to anyone who has kids with an interest in riding.
“Thank you, Cedar Ridge, for a wonderful program!”
—Mark & Susan Lundquist, CRRC members since 2009
