Congressional Riding Academy

Horseback riding lessons are offered Monday-Friday after school. Our goal is to develop confident equestrians in a safe, fun, rider-centered environment. The Congressional Riding Academy helps students develop riding skills, gain horsemanship knowledge, and foster friendships with two and four-legged friends. We believe working with horses builds on the school’s core values of integrity, kindness, perseverance, respect, and responsibility. Lessons are private 1 on 1 for 4 weeks. Please note that due to the Pandemic lesson capacities are very limited. This is a four week program.  

Riding lessons are not offered during our winter months, but will resume with our spring after school activities.
