Book a Private Lesson at Honey Brook Stables

At Honey Brook, our approach to teaching riding lessons begins with helping you learn how to build a connected relationship with your lesson horse.
 
We believe the best riding experience is established through getting to know your horse and the connection that can come in your time together.
 
Our New Student Orientation Program, which includes a minimum of one non-riding session before beginning your traditional lesson experience, will introduce you to how we approach riding differently at Honey Brook.
 
In this first session, you will learn to greet, halter, groom, tack up, and lead your horse, creating the connection that is so important in riding.
 
Whether you are a first-time rider or lifelong equestrian, this experience will give you a leg up in your riding journey as you join us in providing the excellent care we desire for our school masters!
 
Below on this page you will find information on our team of instructors.
 
Here are the steps to get started in our lesson program:
  1. Book your New Student Orientation with Lisa Pulliam (contact info below on Lisa's profile)
  2. Book your first private riding lesson with Kristina. After your first private lesson you may have the option to join a semi-private lesson that fits your skill set and availability.
