Riding Lessons



Seaton Hackney Stables is currently open for lessons on a limited basis under Phase 2 of the Executive Order. We are presently scheduling half hour and one hour private lessons only and observing all precautionary Covid 19 measures. Riders are required to wear a mask and gloves to the facility and on the property (which can be lowered during the lesson time). Riders and guests are not permitted on the property other than during the lesson time. Parents / Guardians are permitted to view lessons observing all social distancing and COVID 19 measures.  Access is permitted in the assigned restroom only. We are able to offer trail rides for either one or two riders who reside in the same premises. All lessons must be scheduled and prepaid with calling the office at 973-644-3355, Although our stables offer limited lessons, we look forward to the return of all services when permitted. An update will be provided on our website at that time. SHS wishes everyone well and to be safe.

Seaton Hackney Stables offers private, semi-private and group lessons for our riders who want more flexibility with scheduling.  Private lessons are an ideal way for students to have one-on-one instruction which provides the rider the opportunity to focus on developing their strengths and correcting their weaknesses.


Instructors work closely with their students, adjusting and advancing the course of study based on each unique rider’s needs.


Our team of instructors specializes in all levels of riding for a multitude of disciplines including English, Hunter Jumper, Equitation, Western, Dressage and Cross Country.


Seaton Hackney Stables houses over 35 horses in order to address a variety of skill levels. As the riders progress through the levels and acquire new skills or explore different disciplines, Seaton Hackney Stables can provide horses that accommodate the riders’ unique needs.


We ask all riders to schedule their lessons in advance and arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time. Riders must wear ASTM approved helmets (we can provide at No Charge) along with the proper footwear.


As our horses are all fitted for their own saddles, we cannot accommodate rider owned saddles, unless approved by management.


For the lesson program, we do offer Riding cards at a discounted rate.


Riders also have the option of Equisharing (leasing) horses in order to continue fine-tuning their riding skills.
