Lythrum Farm’s Lesson Program
The lesson program at Lythrum Farm specializes in Dressage, and teaches year round on the 7 different lesson horses. While all experience levels are welcome, it is usually recommended that children be at least 8 years old, although exceptions are often made. Sara, the trainer at Lythrum Farm, believes that the most effective way of learning is through private lessons, which she offers in hour increments. Lessons are conducted every day of the week except for Saturdays, please contact us for availability.
The Lythrum Farm lesson program is running almost at capacity and each lesson slot must be reserved in advance. Lessons that are canceled with less than 24 hours notice will result in the full charge for the missed lesson.
