Kolowa Equestrian is proud to offer English riding lessons geared toward a fundamental understanding of true horsemanship all while promoting a safe and fun learning environment for beginners through advanced level riders. Through basic dressage fundamentals and a focus on detail, our lessons produce effective Hunter/Jumper riders and horses. Lessons involve not only riding instruction but will also provide the student with knowledge of the complete process of riding. Students will be responsible for grooming, tacking, and untacking their horses at each lesson.
At Kolowa Equestrian we design an individualized training program to meet your personal goals for you and your horse. Our beginner program has been designed to focus on the basics of form and function to develop a solid foundation all while having fun. While our Advanced Program helps to fine tune the Equestrian Athlete allowing them to reach even the highest of horse and rider goals.
Note: Please be advised that no-show and lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance before scheduled lesson time, will be subject to the normal lesson charge.

Hudson teaches beginner through advanced lessons and is one of our IEA Horses that is team favorite! He also travels the local show circuit and even has dabbled in a few A circuit shows allowing his riders to get an idea of what it’s like to show at these types of events! He is definitely a barn favorite!
DESCRIPTION: Delilah is a 14 year old paint Mustang mare. She is 14 hands tall and is so strong and well built! She began her teaching career with us about a year ago and has become such a wonderful addition to our program. She teaches novice thorough advanced lessons and provides a little more sass than our beginner lesson horses to help further your knowledge of riding!

Sam “Sammy Samerson”

DESCRIPTION: Sam is our back bone of our program. This guy is the best of the best. He teaches beginners from 3 years old and up and takes nothing but the best care of his riders. He shows in everything from groundpoles to 2’6” jumpers to the hunter ring and wins. This guy can do it all. He is a sweet as he can be, with a bit too much personality on most days, always keeping it fun and entertaining to be around.
Dia “Touch of Color”
AGE: 12 years old
BREED: Warmblood/Welsh Cross Paint Pony Mare
DESCRIPTION: With as much sass as she has beauty, Dia keeps our students learning how to ride quietly and softly but effectively. She is small but mighty. She is an essential part of our program. She has brought her riders to top ribbons in the hunter and equitation rings.
What People Say!
Brandy- in case I don’t see you that day and can’t give you a giant hug, please know how much I value the positive mentorship you offered to Corynn when we moved up here. Finding you was the best thing that could’ve happened for Corynn! You’ve been instrumental in her growth, have provided a wonderful safe atmosphere where she’s been able to build some great friendships, and have encouraged her to snag every opportunity she can get to improve.
We will miss you, and I know that both Corynn and Valentino will also miss their barn buddies.
The facilities are top-notch and we couldn’t be happier.

I can tell you without a doubt, this is a fabulous place to have your kids. The atmosphere is nurturing and fun but don’t let that fool you. Brandy really knows how to coach and get the best out of the riders and horses in a supportive and caring way.
