Riding Lessons at Justamere

Justamere is a stress free place to learn to ride. We have excellent beginner horses to teach you to control a horse, not just be a passenger on a 1,000 lb animal, in a safe & relaxed atmosphere. We specialize in helping beginners and non-beginners from seven to seventy get started (or re-started) on the right foot with horses safely and enjoyably.

Twila Slavic, the barn owner and trainer, has 40+ years of teaching experience helping countless numbers of students establish or improve their riding skills. We host several shows throughout the year which are open to our boarders, students, as well as riders from surrounding farms. If you would like more information regarding lessons or to schedule a time to visit our facility, please call 586-295-1313.

Ready to Learn How to Ride?

Lessons are scheduled by appointment only. All new students will begin with a private lesson to determine their riding ability. New riders will remain in private lessons and receive one-on-one instruction while they learn the fundamental skills necessary to riding. Once they have learned the basic skills, they may move on to group lessons with other riders of the same ability. More experienced riders may enter a group lesson at the appropriate level once they've been evaluated during their initial private lesson.

First time students should wear boots with a heel. No flip-flops, sandals, or open toed shoes. Proper riding boots are required by the 5th lesson. Riding breeches or long cotton pants (no jeans, shorts, or capris) are recommended. Gloves are also recommended. Safety helmets MUST be worn by rider, regardless of age or skill level. Saddle and all other necessary horse tack (including the horse!) are provided. This is an excellent place for you to add a paragraph and let your visitors know more about you and your services.
