Our goal at Rock Creek Park Horse Center is to provide our students with a solid foundation both under saddle and on the ground. While our students ride primarily in the ring, there may be periodic theory ‘ground lessons’ as well as additional practice on trails at the discretion of the instructor. Weight limits may apply. If this is a concern, please read our FAQ and consult with our office.
Our group riding lessons run on a term basis, with classes meeting weekly. Arrival time is 30 minutes before the lesson and departure is 30 minutes after, meaning a two-hour time commitment. Terms vary in length from 13-15 weeks during the spring, fall and winter seasons. Classes are organized according to age and riding ability. English balanced-seat instruction is offered at all levels. Intermediate level classes include some jumping and basic dressage. All new students, except complete beginners, must take an evaluation lesson before registering for group classes. Evaluations may be scheduled online.
Prior to registering for Group Lessons, all class placements must be confirmed in advance by our Programs Manager. The lesson schedule, calendar and registration are available online. All registrations are subject to review by management.
Take a look at the current schedule! Please note that class days, times, levels, and availability will often get adjusted ahead of New Student Registration. The schedule is posted to give a sense of our program and may change as we approach the term.
