H.O.T. Equestrian Academy offers Western horseback riding lessons for riders of all skill levels who are ages 4+. We have lesson horses for use or you can bring your own horse to our facility located just a quick 20 minute drive from Waco. Equipment, including helmets, saddles, etc. are included in the lesson. Full and Half Leases of our lesson horses are available for pre-approved riders who would like more riding time.


Students will progress through levels of
instruction that cover:

  • Handling horses

  • Grooming and tacking up (saddling)

  • Preparing for a lesson with lunging or round pen work

  • Horsemanship and equitation

  • Basic riding foundation, then specialization 

  • Drills and exercises to develop a balanced, independent seat, and confidence
