Kimberly Bredehoft offers instruction in Trail Riding, English, or Western for beginners through advanced riders. All lessons are conducted in the safety of the arena unless it's a trail riding lesson. Lessons are availible for children and adults. Helmets and boots are provided. Lesson sessions are 50 minutes in duration.
We are now requiring applications for lessons/leasing. Please fill out the appropriate application for your needs. Thank you.
We have a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel less than 48 hours before the lesson, you will be charged.
We try very hard not to cancel appointments. If a lesson needs to be altered, we try and adjust time or find a replacement instructor if that is neccesary.
In the event that we need to cancel due to an emergency situation, serious illness, dangerous weather (high wind, thunder and lightening, etc.) or other reason and you have a prepaid credit to cover the lesson, you will retain that credit to cover your next scheduled lesson.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
Please print, review and sign the release form and medical release and information form and bring them with you on your first visit to Kim's barn at Franklin Canyon Stables.
