Riders who have previous experience and can post the trot, but have not ridden at Lord Stirling Stable, must be evaluated prior to registration to be placed in the appropriate level.  Call the stable office to schedule a convenient testing appointment.

The 10-week program rate for Somerset County residents is $375.  For out of county residents the rate is $525. Junior Workshops are $300 for county residents and $450 for out of county. Payment is due at registration and is payable by cash, check, MasterCard, American Express, Visa or Discover. 

Students who reside outside of Somerset County may purchase an annual Non-County I.D. Card for $170. This card entitles each individual cardholder to a discounted rate on riding lessons.  Savings multiply with each class registration.
