Robinson Equestrian offers weekly lessons with their four highly qualified trainers. Kelsey Lesh, head trainer at Robinson Equestrian, specializes in preparing horses and riders to compete in the hunter/jumper arenas as well as services those who wish to learn how to trail ride in western tack. Her training focuses on relationship building between horse and rider as well as teaching her students to be smart and safe around horses. Working from the ground up, her students build confidence and skills that will carry them in any direction they wish to go. Kelsey is currently accepting new clients who own or lease a horse or are interested in joining our show team.
Mady Schube is the assistant trainer at Robinson Equestrian. Mady specializes in teaching the basics of riding and getting students started in the show ring. She believes in addressing each student as an individual and catering each lesson to suit the student's needs while having a strong focus on safety. Mady is currently accepting new students of all riding levels and abilities.
Lexie Swanger and Kat Zwicker are the newest instructors at Robinson Equestrian. Both are graduates of Wilson college from their Equine Studies program. Both are taking new beginner students based on availability.
Robinson Equestrian offers lessons on both our school horses or your own horse. Beginners start on the ground and learn the basics of grooming, tacking up, and basic horse care in conjunction with their time in the saddle. Lessons start for children 5 years of age and up. Adults of all skill levels are welcome as well!
Standalone Lessons – Standalone lesson prices are for those who are just starting to ride or cannot commit to a set day and time for a lesson each week. Lessons are paid for at the beginning of each lesson.
Lesson Packages – Lesson packages are available for those who wish to have a set lesson day and time each week. Packages are paid for at the beginning of the month. Lesson packages include 4 lessons a month. If your set day of the week happens to allow for a fifth lesson that month, you get the fifth lesson for free! Lesson packages are only available for students riding Monday through Friday.
At Robinson Equestrian we believe that in order to be well-rounded equestrians students must learn all aspects of horse care, including stall cleaning. For this reason, we allow students to work in exchange for extra lessons or extra riding time. Students commit to a certain day to clean stalls each week and are responsible for removal of manure, cleaning and refilling water buckets, and adding additional sawdust as needed. Students must be 13 years of age or older to participate in this program and are required to take weekly lessons in order to qualify.

If the rider cancels their lesson 1-12 hours before the scheduled lesson then the lesson may be made up at the trainer's discretion.
If the rider cancels the lesson within one hour of the lesson or "no call no shows" then no make up lesson will be scheduled or credit given.
Families, please note that if one member of your family will not be attending the lesson but other members will still attend you must inform the trainer of this person's absence within the above guidelines in order to receive credit so that the trainer may plan accordingly for the lesson.
It is the responsibility of the rider to contact the trainer regarding available make up times. If the make up lesson is cancelled by the rider then rider will forfeit that lesson. No additional make up lesson or credit will be given.
