Ride With Us!

Our lesson program focuses on total horsemanship, on the ground and in the saddle. We believe that knowledge gives us the power to care for these magnificent beasts so they live a long, healthy life. Students will learn how to groom, tack, and care for the needs of their individual horse. 

We are only able to accept students that wish to ride at least once weekly.

In order to provide the best service and lesson fit, we prefer to schedule lessons by email or phone. Please contact Teresa at 540-717-0121 or email northstarstablesnova@gmail.com

Yes, the little ones can ride! We offer 30 minute private leadline lessons for our youngest horse  (or pony) enthusiasts! Lessons are adapted to the needs of each student and contain a mix of on the ground and in the saddle. Miniature horses and ponies are used for our preschool program. Available for ages 2-6.


Parents will be required to assist as a sidewalker if necessary.


Private Lessons


Private lessons are available in increments of 45 and 60 minutes. Lessons are based on the principles of classical dressage - riding for the well-being of the horse. All students start on a leadline or lunge line and lessons are focused on building strength and a balanced seat. Available for ages 5-adult. 

Please note, all beginner lessons are private only. When it is safe to do so we will offer small group lessons for advanced beginners+. The current weight limit, based on the needs of our horses, is 180 pounds.

This option is for riders with medical, mental, or emotional diagnoses and follows the same curriculum as our "typical" lessons. Scholarships are available for families in need. Therapeutic riding is available for ages 4-adult.
