Riding lessons at Hylee TrainingLessons offered at Hylee Training are by certified coaches/instructors on well trained lesson horses. Visit our about us page for more information on the Hylee team.

Riding lessons are purchased in monthly blocks, there are students generally come at the same time every week however, some students come bi-weekly. Lessons are invoiced at the beginning of the month to hold that spot for the rider.

Lesson Rates are as follows:

Private lessons are approx 45 mins of the instructors time. Students that are under 6 must ride in a private lesson. Children who are unable to tack and untack on their own will use their lesson time to learn proper grooming and tacking up procedures. Once they are able to get ready on their own they can arrive early to do such.The emphasis in these lessons is on the safety and learning basic skills to walk, trot and canter your horse effectively, safely and correctly. Beginner riders may spend sometime working on the lunge to effectively balance without need to control the horse.

Advanced / Intermediate rider lessons include 45 mins of working. Students are expected to be tacked up and warmed up so the 45 mins is used effectively. This group of riders are working on specific goals with the horse they are working with and are generally showing or leasing or interested in either.

If a lesson is missed with 24 hour notice then a make up lesson can be rescheduled within 30 days. If a lesson is missed without notice the lesson is forfeited.

We offer a variety of different types of lessons including:


What you’ll need
* Helmet (some sizes available at stable)

    My name is Jennifer Besso, I am a 25 year old, enthusiastic, fast learner with great potential to become a professional rider. My goal is to be a successful jumper, I want to take a combination of hunter/jumper and dressage lessons.
    I started riding at the age of five, aside from summer riding and galloping wildly I never had the opportunity to be trained professionally. I really want to start riding can you please send me an email with the lessons offered and the cost of training.

    Hello, I’ve been riding for roughly 15 years, jumping mostly. I am looking for some advanced lessons that would help me with my jumping and maybe eventually lease or going to some local shows. Let me know and maybe we could find a time to meet and talk some more.
    Thank you!!

  6. Celina says:

    Hello, I’m looking for lessons an advanced lesson horse as I just recently sold my own. I have been riding for almost 8 years. Do you have any lesson horses available that jump up to 2’9 or 3′? And also do any of your lesson students ever take your horses to local shows like thunderbird or MREC?
    Thank you so much.

  7. Amy says:

    Hi there
    I would like to set up a time to chat about lessons for myself. I am looking to get back into riding. It had been about 16 years. Thanks a bunch.

  8. Leah says:

    My 6 year old daughter wants to take horseback riding lessons. I would like to give her a package of 6 lessons in the spring. How do I do that?

  9. Annabel says:

    Hi, I would like to come and see your facility and discuss the lessons/times available. I havent riden for over 30years.

  10. Ali says:


    I would like to go riding with my family (husband and two kids over 6) for an hour or two through trails. Do you have provide this service or package deals for this type scenario? I’m not sure what your lesson would include? Little experience for the adults and no experience for the children.


    • Alicia says:

      Our lessons are in the arena only, its important when you are first learning to ride to be in an enclosed area. Therefore, we do not offer trail rides to beginners in this type of scenario , Sorry:(

  11. Olga Shilova says:

    We’d like to know some information about riding lessons. We are going to Vancouver in July and we are staying here for the whole month. We are interested in show jumping. We have been going in for this kind of sport for 2 years. What lessons can you offer? What is the price?
    Thank you.

    • Alicia says:

      Hey Olga,
      Our prices are above and I’m not quite sure what you mean by what type of lessons. We do offer H/J lessons if that is what you are referring to.

  12. ashley says:

    Hi! Just wondering if your prices are per lesson or per set of four?
    Thanks. :)

  13. Alicia says:

    Hi Judy,
    Please visit our online booking page to reserve your appointment.

  14. Alicia says:

    I didn’t receive your email. I will send you one right now – now that I have your email address

  15. Sadri says:

    My dad is willing to let me take lessons, the thing is ,is that i’m 14 am i too old to take lessons at this age?

  16. Claire says:

    I have a quick question. You say you offer both hunter/jumper lessons and dressage lessons. I’m not quite sure which discipline I want to persue yet – If I had once-a-week lessons, would I be able to alternate between dressage and jumping lessons? Thanks!

    • Alicia says:

      Most definitely.If your end goal is to be a successful jumper, you will need dressage lessons none the less. So a combination of both really works well.

  17. CP says:

    I don’t have a helmet or boots like you’ve described. Is it still possible to use my voucher for a lesson? And how much in advance do I need to book a lesson? I would like to come mid-January if weather and road conditions permit.


    • Alicia says:

      Hey Carolyn,
      A helmet is not required as we provide those. Boots are required though. I would suggest heading to Walmart and pick up a pair of rubber boots with a 1″ heel. They run you about 10$. We cannot allow people without boots with a heel to ride.Lessons must be booked at least 1 week in advance.

  18. Alicia says:

    Please feel free to book online if you have a voucher. If you are looking for a regular spot, please email me at alicia@hyleetraining.com to schedule.

  19. Mary says:

    Hi! Is there such thing as kids that are around 12-13 to help the trainers out with the younger kids? Kind of like volunteering? Thanks!

  20. connie says:

    Hi, I know 6 years old is the minimum for the lesson, but can my 4 year old girl ride with the coach. I have one girl 7 years old and I want to bring my younger daughter to have this experience too!

  21. Alicia says:

    Sorry they are both too young.. Six years old is our minimum. So feel free to gives a call in a few years when they are older :) And the coupons do not have an expiry.

  22. Alicia says:

    Thanks for your inquiry Gloria! Six years old is old enough. Classes are offered 7 days a week. Once you purchase your voucher you then use our online booking system to choose an appointment for yourself.

  23. Brandi says:

    Hi there, i am looking at buying the ‘DEALFIND’ .. for the two lessons .. now would that be suitable for 2 people to go for one lesson at the same time? . or is it made for 1 person to use on 2 seperate occasions. im inquiring because i thought it would be interesting for me and my boyfreind to try.

  24. Alicia says:

    Thank you for your inquiry, in the past we have taken this age group. However, learning from past experiences we have learned that it is not the best policy. So at this time no. Sorry :(

  27. Angela says:

    If you also teach a 9 years old kid who has learned little bit before.

    • admin says:

      Yes we do teach 9 year olds. If you are interested give me a call 604.773.0297 or email me via the contact page to set up a time to come for a visit.

  28. admin says:

    Hi Karina,
    Generally beginner lessons are on the lunge line except when steering is the lesson being taught. If you have never ridden a horse before you begin on the lunge line once you are able to control the horse you are off the lunge line. So the answer to your question would depend on your level of riding.

    Students do not choose which horse they will be riding Instructors choose the horse which is most suitable for them to ride. Choices are made based on size of rider, what level their riding is and personality of both rider and horse.

    Yes, lessons are available every second week.

    Thanks, Alicia

  29. Hi,

    Would you be able to give lessons every second week? My other question is are beginner lessons on lead or off? Do you get to choose the available school horses to ride if more than one is available?
    Karina Lannard
