Signing Up for Lessons


If you are an Earlham student interested in taking riding lessons for fun or AWPE Wellness credit, register for the course “AWPE 100 Riding Lessons” via the Self-Service registration tools. The course fee of $145 will be charge to your student account.

If you are a community member, check Earlham's Academic Calendar and contact the Lesson Coordinator before the end of the first full week of classes. The course fee of $210 (for seven lessons) will be due as a check written to Earlham College Stables at the time of your first lesson.


You will receive a scheduling sheet from the Lesson Coordinator in your Earlham mail drawer or via email. It will ask you to describe your previous riding experience and indicate the lesson times for which you are available. Please fill this paper out and return it to the Lesson Coordinator as soon as possible!

Having received scheduling sheets from all registered students, the Lesson Coordinator will schedule lessons according to experience and availability. Either the Lesson Coordinator or your Lesson Instructor will contact you with your assigned lesson time within the next two weeks.


Please arrive on time for your lesson wearing appropriate clothing. Shorts, sweatpants, dresses or skirts are not suitable for riding, but jeans or tights are fine. Your shirt should be comfortable and secure. Horse barns are by nature dusty and dirty, so we encourage you to avoid wearing anything you like to keep nice. Helmets are provided as well as riding boots, but please wear your own socks.

Passing the Course

Earlham students are required to attend seven lessons in order to receive credit for riding lessons. Most instructors offer at least eight lessons and may offer additional make-up riding times.
