Home School Partnerships

Windermere Equestrian Center is proud to be affiliated with two Home School Partnerships. We offer riding instruction through the Center Line Home School Partnership and the Quo Vadis Home School Partnership of Sterling Heights. Lessons through the home school partnerships are free of charge for the students. Each partnership has set up a different program through Windermere Equestrian Center. Please contact the Partnership for registration.

CENTERLINE HOMESCHOOL PARTNERSHIP LESSONS

Lessons are FREE to members of the Centerline Home school Partnership.
You do not need to be a Centerline Resident – contact Vanessa Brewer at CLHSP (hspartnership@CLPS.org) for details.

FALL 2016 / WINTER 2017 SESSIONS

Dates for this time period have yet to be determined.

Please Note: Our stable area and both indoor arenas are heated. Riding is comfortable year round. We do not cancel lessons due to temperature.

Each session is 10 weeks. Students will ride at the same day and time every week. Private and group lessons are available.

Class Offerings

Beginner (minimum age is 6)

This is a half hour private lesson for young students or students new to riding. Students receive individual lunge-line instruction to master the basics of horsemanship. Most students are able to ride on their own at the completion of this session.
Lessons are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Advanced Walk-Trot (minimum age is 7)

Students must have permission from the farm to participate in Advanced Walk-Trot. If the student has not ridden at Windermere Equestrian Center an evaluation lesson is required. This is a one hour group lesson. Students must be able to walk and post the trot on their own. A maximum of 5 students per class. Students will continue to progress in their ability to control their own bodies and the horse.
Lessons are available on Monday and Wednesday only, at 12:30 pm.

****If you are unsure your child will be comfortable with horses and riding lessons we encourage
a one-time half hour private lesson. These lessons are offered to the CLHSP Participants for $35.00 (regularly priced at $55) and must be completed prior to the end of the enrollment period for fall 2015 or winter 2016. These introductory lessons are arranged through Windermere Equestrian Center, Inc. Payment is the student's responsibility, and not part of the CHP program.
