At Rosewood Hunters & Jumpers, we offer lesson programs for all levels, from first-time-in-the-saddle riders to seasoned show competitors. Tanya and her team of skilled and knowledgeable instructors create a customized lesson and training program suited to each rider's age, experience and goals.
Located in the beautiful Southlands, Vancouver - we are nestled among sprawling estates and stables. Easily accessible by car, bus or bike, our Riding School program is popular for busy Vancouver families and professionals who wish to participate in equestrian sport without driving outside of the city.
Our school facility includes two well-lit outdoor sand riding arenas, perfectly sized for beginner through intermediate riders. Our stable houses more than a dozen lesson horses and ponies and includes a spacious lounge area, comfortable washroom facilities, and barn laundry area.
Most lessons take place in the riding arenas, but If the sand footing in the arena is too wet or is frozen, we offer a road or trail ride or a session in the stables focusing on horse care and stable management.
We encourage students to sign up for a weekly lesson spot to have consistent lesson dates and times throughout the riding season. This system also allows us to better match clients with our available lesson horses and ponies, as well as our team of talented instructors.
For first-time Rosewood clients, we offer a four (4) lesson package - one lesson per week. This is a great way for adult riders to determine if our School Program is a good 'fit' and for parents to gauge their child's interest in the sport. Each lesson is 30-minutes in duration. This is a $390 value and offered only once per rider.
30-minute lesson with one rider and one coach. School horse/pony and equipment provided for the lesson.
45-minute lessons with two (2) riders and one coach. Riders are matched based on age and skill level. School horses/pony and equipment provided for the lesson.
For those who wish to ride fewer than once a week or wish to book a one-time ride, this private lesson fee is applied.
For those who wish to ride fewer than once a week or wish to book a one-time ride, this group lesson fee is applied.
Clients must ensure they arrive at Rosewood at least 10 minutes prior to their lesson and are prepared to start their lesson at the assigned start time.
If for some reason the instructor will/does arrive late for your lesson, she will:
A minimum of 24-hours notice is required in order to cancel a lesson free of charge. Please email email@example.com to inform of any lesson dates that need to be canceled. If canceling with less than 24-hour notice, the lesson will not be rescheduled, and the full lesson price will be billed.
Lessons are held rain or shine but will be cancelled in the event of severe weather such as thunder/lightning, extreme heat or cold. Rosewood will follow local school closings; if schools are closed due to severe weather, then the barn will be closed as well.
Lessons at Southlands Riding Club with owner and head coach, Tanya Rosen, permit access to larger riding spaces and jumping courses. And covered riding spaces allow riders to train without interruption year-round regardless of the weather.
A Club membership is mandatory and is an additional cost not covered as part of your riding lesson fees. The Club offers a variety of membership options including 3-month and 6-month trials, and everything from one-day-a-week options to full-privilege memberships.
30-minute (private) to 45-minute (group) sessions at Southlands Riding Club for a fee of $65.00 including GST.
