At Bein Performance Horses we take great pride in our lesson program. Students in our program take a hands on approach to horsemanship. Each lesson starts in an orderly fashion; students come to the barn, look at the lesson board to see what horse they will ride (as well as the equipment they will use). Students learn to ride utilizing excellent horses, equipment, & instructors. Each horse is selected based on its past performance history (training & show record), soundness, personality, & ability to recognize the skill level (or lack there of) for each rider. Many of our lesson horses have competed at the national level.
Students all begin their riding career bareback to learn balance. Once the rider has established their seat, they move to a hunt saddle for a number of lessons. At this time they begin riding western. Once they have fully benefited from those disciplines, we encourage our riders to try Saddle Seat, Sidesaddle, Show Hack, Reining, Trail, Showmanship, etc. Beginner lessons are all given in a one on one, private atmosphere. Once riders are at the intermediate level, they are eligible for Seminar (group Equitation lessons) which are held on Saturdays.
Jessica Bein is a level 2 ARIA certified instructor for Saddleseat and Reining.
