One-Time Private Lessons

Recurring Private Lessons



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 additional practice on trails at the discretion of the instructor. Weight limits may apply. If this is a concern, please consult with our office before applying. Please call 24-hours in advance to cancel a scheduled class.
Email us at with any questions you may have.

Our group riding lessons run on a term basis, with classes meeting weekly. Terms vary in length from 12-14 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.

60 minutes -- $100
