(ages 6 and up).

Group lessons do not exceed six riders (and are more commonly held with 2-4 riders). This ensures that all students get adequate attention in the lessons and are able to progress. It also provides a safety oriented atmosphere where riding arenas are not overcrowded and the chance of accidents are minimized. Groups are organized by ability levels and approximate age.

Aiden Rice

Aiden Rice Academy Stables InstructorStarting at the age of 6 in Northern California, Aiden Rice grew up horseback riding in the hunter/jumper discipline with some western pleasure riding on the side. During this time, she spent summers working at a local horse camp while competing in both USEF/USHJA rated horse shows and Interscholastic (IEA) horse shows. She moved to Colorado in 2015 to attend the University of Colorado Boulder and in the summer of 2017 worked as director of the Academy Stables summer camp. Aiden’s passion for horses is centralized around a fun, safe, enthusiastic, and hardworking environment, and she looks forward to sharing her 15 years of equestrian experience in both summer camp and lessons for Academy Stables in 2018.
