If you like riding horses but don't want the full expense or responsibility of having your own, come ride with us! Also great for someone who eventually wants to get their own horse, likes to ride safely with a group or wants to learn to ride.
Private owner (whose husband doesn't ride) enjoys having other women, and girls 11 years and older, ride with her. Our 3 gaited horses and a mule are at home, near Ina Road west of the freeway, with an arena, round pen, barn with bathroom and porches, and miles of scenic trail riding in Saguaro National Park accessible right from our backyard.
Very reasonably priced month to month lease includes use of horse, saddle and tack. Riders groom, stretch and tack the horse they'll be riding and help with chores such as feeding, cleaning tack, washing horses or sweeping the barn.
• $ 50/month (or $15/ride) to ride weekly in the arena, on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 5:30 - 7 p.m.
• $100/month (or $30/lesson) to receive riding lessons weekly, on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 5:30-7 p.m.
• $100/month (or $30/ride) to go with owner on weekly Saturday or Sunday early morning trail rides for 1-2 hours
Interested women or girls need to have riding boots, be in good physical shape, friendly and responsible. Must have riding experience and be able to easily mount and dismount from the ground to go on trail rides; it's fine to use our mounting block for arena riding. Due to the smaller size of our gaited horses, rider weight can't exceed 150 pounds. However, our big mule can handle riders up to 180 pounds.
The mule is gentle and easy going; she is especially good for newer, older or bigger riders. Our two experienced trail riding geldings are the horses most commonly requested. Our spirited little mare is enjoyed by calm, small, excellent riders who like to lead trail rides or practice training a fast horse to relax in the arena.
Please reply to this Craigslist e-mail if interested, describing your riding experience and if you want to do arena riding, take lessons or go trail riding.
