Weekly horseback riding lessons at the C Bracket Horse Barn are an ideal kids’ summer activity. Lessons are available for ages 5 and above and with a flexible schedule. Most students come once a week, while some come twice or even more often as the schedule allows.

Lessons Include:

  • Private lessons
  • Barrel racing lessons
  • Rope school
  • Adult riding hour

All classes are tailored to the student's needs, based on how well the students are mastering fundamentals.

  • Beginner classes (for kids and adults) start with the safety and handling of the horses on the ground and build up to safely mount and dismount, balance and steer a horse, basic patterns, etc.
  • Intermediate classes cover posting, leg cues, loping and leads, obstacles, etc.

After mastering the fundamentals, all students can ride out of the arena on trail rides through the pastures. Students also receive primary equine education, such as horse parts, colors and markings, hoof care, tack and tacking up, quick-release knots, etc. Adult riding hour is for those who don’t need instruction and want to enjoy some ‘horsehair therapy.’

Our group classes are divided by the age of the riders and skill level – beginners, intermediate, adult, etc. On average, group classes have from eight to 12 students. These classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and additional courses are opened as others fill. Most lessons occur on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. through the summer. Specific class times will be determined by the number of registrants, age, and skill levels of riders.

We have three rates for group horseback riding lessons:

Full Session Group Class

  • Rate is $300 for 12 classes (1 day/week).
  • Spring, Summer and Fall sessions available (each season is 12 weeks).
  • You pay ahead for the session. The payment can be flexible with at least 50% paid in advance and is non-refundable.

Mini Session Group Class

  • Rate is $125 for 4 classes (1 day/week).
  • You pay ahead for the weeks in each mini session, which are about one month long. This discounted rate is non-refundable, with no make-up classes for missed weeks.

  • This option is perfect for those who can’t commit to a whole month, the rate is paid per class, allowing students to come when their schedule allows.

Meet Your Instructors

Christy and Scott Martinez

Scott and Christy Martinez have owned and operated the C Bracket Horse Barn since 2014. They have both been horseback since they were kids, and Scott’s Wyoming ranching background and Christy’s Midwestern farming background has given them a variety of horseback experience between the two of them.

After growing up riding horses for her entire life, Christy Martinez has spent the last seven years teaching students to ride. She enjoys spending time learning new skills herself that she can then pass on to students, and she finds that pairing students with the perfect horses to build their confidence and skills is one of her favorite parts of the job. She also enjoys colt starting, problem solving with project horses, training and driving harness horses and gathering cattle.

Scott Martinez was raised on ranches in Wyoming, and now passes his practical horsemanship skills on to students in the arena. His favorite subject to teach to students is the roping class, and he is known for being a reassuring presence for new students who might feel insecure during their first few classes horseback. His background with horses includes starting colts, ranch roping, ranch rodeo and managing cattle horseback.

In addition to C Bracket’s instructors, qualified wranglers will be on hand to help ensure that each student receives the one-on-one attention they need.

When scheduling allows, we will bring in guest instructors for the equine education sessions, featuring those involved in the farrier, equine dentistry, equine massage, and veterinary fields.
