Lesson Info

Step by Step of How to Inquire for Lessons!


  1. We are lucky enough to have 3 instructors dedicated to our teams success! Contact Ann White, Alice White, or Jules Morgan. If you need their contact information, please reach out to an officer!

  2. Once you have a date and time that works for everyone, enter it into our IHSA TimeTree. This helps all of us keep track of lessons and create team practices if scheduling allows! If you don't have access to the TimeTree please ask an officer!

  3. Every ride or lesson costs our members $30! You can make this payment by venmoing @Ann-White-62. In cases where payment plans might be needed, please reach out to Ann directly!

  4. Please arrive at Vermillion Valley Equine Center 30 minutes prior to your lesson. This gives you ample time to brush, tack up, and bond with the horse you are riding!

  5. Please make sure you are wearing appropriate riding attire. This entails long pants (breeches or jeans), closed toe shoes (with a heel preferably), and a helmet of course! 

VVEC Barn Rules

  2. Sweep your grooming space BEFORE and AFTER you ride!
