Horseback Riding and Driving Lessons

Keith Equestrian Center offers outstanding, personalized instruction to both the novice beginner or the seasoned pros. With a large string of lesson horses, we have the confidence building beginner horses, the challenging show horses, and everything in between. 

We are dedicated to providing our riders with an encouraging, safe environment. Investing in our youth riders, their personal growth and self-esteem.  We firmly believe that horses raise great kids!
Our adult riders enjoy connecting with other adults, enjoying the peace and happiness in the barn family environment. Several of our adults are back to riding after a hiatus or are seasoned riders. We have also personally fulfilled the dreams of many adults of learning to ride and/or own their own horse! All enjoy our close knit barn family, as we pursue our equestrian dreams together!
