Since 1998 we have safely taught over 3000 students to ride! If you are a newcomer to equestrian sports, Circle Lake Ranch is a great place to start. Student safety is our ultimate priority. We focus on providing a solid basis of knowledge and ability. Our customers have excelled at both the regional and national level around the world including Britain, Egypt, Canada, Malaysia, South Africa, Japan and Norway.
The cost for our lessons is $220 per month – it is a flat rate no matter if it is a four week or five week month. This payment is due in full the first class of each month via autopay. If you miss a class you must remain in lessons, and take a makeup lesson within thirty days or the lesson is lost (they cannot be applied as your future regular class). Be sure to attend all your classes in a month with the free class – makeups are not given for that extra free class.

Circle Lake Ranch is a horseback riding academy offering western and english horseback riding lessons. We specialize in beginners and in creating true equestrians.
We teach riders age 7 through adult.
HOW MANY TIMES A MONTH DO I RIDE AND HOW LONG ARE THE CLASSES?
Our lessons are taught in a group format, once a week, at the same time and on the same horse, so for instance you would ride at 6:00 Monday nights on “Chrome”. We have assistants available in case a student needs one-on-one time during the class to master a particular skill. Ten minutes of your hour-long class time is dedicated to tack (equipment) changes and ride time should be about 50 minutes. Our horses are capable of carrying a rider up to 180 pounds in weight based on the height and size of the horse.
Students with disabilities are referred to SIRE’s wonderful program. Their phone number is 281.356.7588.
If the student is a minor child under the age of 18 years, both mother and father must sign and initial each page of our liability waiver form to grant permission to ride. If the student is an adult age 18 or over, they must sign a liability waiver form in order to ride. Be certain to include your health insurance information on this form and your complete mailing and email address. You may print the form at the link below:
SAFETY AND LESSON RULES
Safety is our number-one priority. We want you to be familiar with our barn safety rules which you can print below:
We require ALL riders to wear certified ASTM/SEI helmets, riders are required to bring their own helmets. Bicycle helmets are not allowed because they are produced to protect in different circumstances. Riders must wear jeans or jodhpurs and Western or English riding boots are required. If you need to purchase boots we recommend Charlotte’s Saddlery. They are located on I-10 at the Kirkwood Exit in Houston. Their telephone number is 281.596.8225.
Charlotte’s Saddlery: English and Western riding equipment and clothing for the equestrian located at I-10 and Kirkwood.
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WEATHER?
In case of Thunderstorms in the area, we run Channel 13 Doppler Radar to determine if we should ride. If we decide to cancel lessons we call or text our customers. We do not decide in the early afternoon, as weather conditions in Houston change rapidly. For weekend lesson weather information, text 832.971.8980.
Thank you for your interest in our programs and we look forward to meeting you!
