What we do

Western Riding Lessons

As one of the first fully licensed western riding establishment in the country, Sovereign Quarter Horses have always been at the forefront of promoting and teaching western riding. They offer riding lessons for all abilities, from complete beginners to the more experienced rider on their own highly trained western horses or on your own horse.

All lessons are held in the all-weather purpose-built indoor arena. David, Sarah and Olivia share the teaching between them. All three instructors have learned from and continue to do so from the world’s top western riders such as Charlene Carter, Craig Johnson and Tim Kimura.

Sovereign’s aim is to make your lessons an enjoyable experience tailoring it to your own goals.

To book your lesson, please email us or use the contact form, please also fill out our new rider form below. Please note all lesson bookings are taken via email, not by phone.
