Horseback Riding Lessons in Miami

Horseback riding lessons at Gold Stirrup Academy are taught from the very basics to the last horse show. All of our trainers have extensive experience in the riding field, with many equine breeds, disciplines, and show experience.

Private Classes last about 45 minutes. The rider must have his horse ready at the time of the class, and commit to deal with the horse at the end of the riding lesson. Assistance will be given if needed, but each rider has to learn all the aspects involving the horse care. During the horse training there will be warming up to the rider, and the horse which will improve posture in the saddle, confidence, and reduce the risk of injury.

Group lessons are always given as the booking time and horses are available. They last for about 1 hour. Riders must also have their horses ready for class. During that time, a rider will be leading, and the others will follow. Everyone should pay attention to both the horse and the trainer to make the most of your lesson. Always carefully teaching every individual safety first.

Our riding lessons are tailored to every rider, taking in consideration their age, experience, confidence, and riding goals, among others. We carefully select the right horse to start with so that every riding practice is unforgettable.

At Gold Stirrup Academy, to learn to ride implies much more than the time on the saddle. As a rider, you need to be capable of accomplishing any other horse related task on the book, such as bathing, or lunging a horse. It will not only create a stronger bond between you & the horses, but also give you the skills you need to become a great rider.

You will learn in hand, in the lunge line, freely in the arena, or in all those ways! Every one of our ways of teaching provides specific benefits. Its combination will ensure you do not miss a step on the saddle.

Ways to learn how to ride a horse

Depending on the level of the student and the discretion of the coach, the class may be at hand, rope or loose on the track.

In hand

These classes are given by the coach taking the horse in hand, near the student to better secure him/her. These are simpler classes for the rider to get used to the horse gait and his first steps (walk and trot).

Lunge Lines

The class with the Lunge Lines allows the coach have control of the horse, despite having distance from each other. So the rider will gain confidence as if he were alone with the horse. However, in case of a shock, the trainer has the horse under control. During these classes the rider will exercise physically to improve overall body posture and strengthen the muscles that are used for rides.

Free in the arena

Once the coach deems the student is ready to mount without assistance, the rider can use the entire track. This will allow the student and horse to cope on their own, supervised, and guided by the coach. As the student technical and horse management progress, the learning will go in more detail.

Nowadays, it is not easy to find a place where you can fully relax and chill. Gold Stirrup Academy features 2 riding tracks; the first is a over-sized outdoor arena over 240 ‘x 120’ft and has an outdoor display area to comfortably watch your children or friends. The arena features lighting all around, so that way you can take classes late at night, when at times during the day the weather is very hot as in the summer. On rainy days, we also have an indoor track (Covered round-pen arena) the perfect size for a private class, or large enough to lunge line a horse. The farm has a lot of flexibility when it comes to your needs, and if you are a parent and have a job to do during the class, or if you are a student and have duties before or after your lesson, you can sit in our Guest room where you have A/ C with WIFI for business.
