Ellenwood Equestrian Center is the premiere facility for Atlanta Horseback Riding. Our lesson program has grown over the years with new students doing very well in Dressage competitions and our summer camp has tripled with kids attending year after year. We offer competitive rates for summer camp, lessons, birthday parties and more. We also have the horses and facility for those who just want to ride for the first time. Come visit and be part of the fun.
We offer both group and private lessons. Group lessons range from 4 - 6 students, sometimes smaller and occasionally bigger, and private lessons are one on one. Their are benefits to both types of lessons, but traditionally beginners do just as well if not better learning in a group setting. Riding is a very focused sport with the student learning new things at each lesson while trying to build on existing skills. Group learning fosters a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship as students can watch others working on the same tasks and learn from each other. Our lesson horses are very used to working in both small and large groups and typically are happy to follow one another, giving the student the opportunity to focus on their position and control while the horse goes cooperatively around the arena.
