We have an Eventing lesson program!

Open to junior or adult riders. School horses are available. Trailer-ins are welcome. Safe and professional learning atmosphere. Our objective is to build a rider’s skills to have basic dressage fundamentals and the feel and adjustability necessary to be confident and safe in cross country and show jumping.

Lessons are available 6 days a week with lesson packages starting at one ride per week. Lesson format is 45 minute time slots. Riders must bring boots, gloves and a helmet that fits them; safety is our priority. 

Cancellation policy- if less than 24 hr notice and time cannot be filled then a lesson fee will be charged. Otherwise make-ups can be arranged per request.

Lease horses are available.  We have barn-owned horses with show mileage to show you the ropes when you’re ready to take the next step and get in the show ring.  


We have a schooling show with dressage, eventing, combined test, and showjumping classes a few times a year!  Check out the events page for dates. 

North Grove is open for schooling most days.  Dressage, cross country, and show jumping equipment is available on site.  Waiver required as well as proper vest on cross country.  Contact us by email to set up a visit.
