Riding Academy

Main content start

The Stanford Riding Academy offers English and Dressage riding lessons to students, faculty, staff, community members and Stanford-affiliated people alike with the goal of creating well-educated, humane horse people. Our focus is on building solid skills for maximum safety and achievement. For our classes, riding levels start at riders comfortable at the walk, trot, canter up to offering over fences classes at around 2′ to 2’6″. All riders should be comfortable grooming and tacking up their horse on their own. 

Our Stanford Riding Academy program offers classes on a quarterly schedule. Each quarter starts with a private goal setting lesson with out instructor to work on what each rider’s focus will be that quarter, followed by once weekly group lessons with riders of a similar level. The quarter ends with a capstone event such as a clinic with one of our coaches or clinicians. Classes are offered on the weekends. Program fees are due at the beginning of each quarter.

Our program is currently full. If you are interested in our community lesson program, please contact Tina Davey by email for more information and to complete our waitlist questionnaire. Payment tabs below are for current riders only.
