Crescent Stables offers a comprehensive Riding School Program focusing on English riding and horsemanship, with the opportunity for more advanced riders to specialize in dressage or hunter/jumper training.

We have  one of the largest selections of quality school horses in the area with over 25 horses in our lesson string, with horses and ponies to suit all sizes and levels of experience.

Our number one priority is providing fun, safe and correct instruction for everyone. We cater to children and adults at all levels, from first time riders to A-circuit competitors. We also encourage our junior students to learn responsibility by helping with the horses, and we actively promote the development of empathy, conscientiousness and good peer relationships.

Instruction is available on students’ own horses or our school horses. Whether you are training for competition or simply seeking a “personal best,” our coaches will tailor an individual learning plan to help you achieve your personal goals. Training with our advanced coaches can be in a group, semi-private or private format, at the coach’s discretion. Individual programs can also be designed with Dr. Susan Thompson, who specializes in child psychology and sports performance counselling.

Rates vary for advanced coaches; please contact the office for details.
