Lessons at Northern Belle Stables
The Northern Belle teaches lessons by appointment 6 days a week. We also offer participation in barn and local fun shows and tournaments in addition to our Academy and Show Teams. When students first come to Northern Belle, their riding skills are evaluated and their lessons personalized to each student’s riding abilities. Designed to bring riders from entry level to World Championship contenders, and everything in between, our lesson
program offers professional instruction for all ages and levels of experience. Riders in our
lesson program are also encouraged to watch other riders work their horses. Our heated
viewing room offers comfortable seating with a great view of our indoor riding arena.
Our mission is to help students reach their riding goals, whether it is with a lesson horse,
a show horse, or their own horse.

Tiny Tot Lessons
Offered for children ages 3-5 who are in the beginning stages of riding. Once riders progress past this stage, they may enter our private lessons. Lessons are 30 minutes and consist of 15-20 minutes of riding time with the balance of time spent on grooming and horse care.
Guidelines for Riding Gear and Apparel
Riders should wear ankle-high boots with a smooth sole and a ½ inch heel. Hiking boots are not suggested as the sole might get caught in the stirrup. Boots may be lace-up, zipper or elastic. Sneakers are not acceptable. Long pants are necessary. Helmets are available for your use, however we suggest that you purchase a helmet of your own if you plan to continue riding for awhile. Bicycle helmets are not appropriate for riding horses.
