  • Coordination of veterinarian and farrier services

LEASING STARTING AT $350/MONTH

Riders interested in leasing a horse must first demonstrate good barn manners and responsibility in their handling of horses as well as good, safe riding skills.  Riders taking at least 12 lessons a month (3x per week) and meeting the basic requirements listed above are eligible to lease a horse.

 

  • What are the benefits of leasing or half leasing a horse, as opposed to owning a horse outright? A rider is able to enjoy a horse without all of the responsibilities of owning a horse. 

  • When a rider advances beyond the level, age, or size of the horse, they do not have a horse they have to sell in order to upgrade.

  • The opportunity to ride when you want (limited only by barn hours and courtesy during large group lesson times)

  • Priority scheduling for lessons and makeup lessons.

  • When you must move on from a horse you grow to love, you don't have to wonder where it goes when you are riding another horse. You can always come back and visit!

  • If you think you want a horse but are not quite sure about committing to buying one, leasing or half-leasing a horse is an excellent option to gain preparatory experience for the responsibility of owning a horse!

  • If your high school student just needs a horse to ride on an equestrian team for 12 weeks... THIS is perfect!

  • Discounted rates for showing and summer camps.

LESSONS STARTING AT $30/HALF HOUR

Whether you are an experienced rider or a beginner, Yorktown Stables has a horse or pony suited for your level.  We offer private and group lessons on your horses or ours. Multiple lesson discounts with lesson packages are available. Our horses and ponies are seasoned show horses and are not your typical school horses. 
Ride for pleasure or ride into the ribbons whatever your desire may be.
