Community Lessons

Why learn to ride or drive at High Hopes?

Our program is designed to open up the world of horses to our local community in a safe and fun learning environment.  Our horses are specifically chosen for their good nature, patience and willingness to interact with people.  Our professional staff has received extensive training on safety and the most effective teaching methods to reach all individuals.  Our community lesson programs offer something for all levels of riders from someone who has never ridden to someone who is looking to further their riding and horsemanship skills.
