Circle C Private Lesson Programs

Circle C Equestrian Center offers riding lessons to anyone five years old and up. Even though Circle C is operated by Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont, riders do not need to be a girl or a Girl Scout to participate.

Weekly lessons are one hour in length and consist of grooming and saddling, instruction in the arena and an occasional trail ride depending on student interest. All lessons are taught by certified CHA or PATH riding instructors. Here at the equestrian center, safety is our top priority. We do everything we can to provide a safe, fun and educational experience. We focus on building a strong foundation of horsemanship that will lead to confidence on and off the horse.

We offer private, semi-private and group lessons.
