Windsor Equestrian specializes in private riding lessons. We accept students based on their seriousness and commitment to good horsemanship and equestrian education — Not on background, age, ability or type of horse. We welcome prospective clients to make an appointment to watch lessons, sign up for “test-drive” lessons, observe training sessions, and to ask lots of questions. We have lesson horses for beginners, advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced riders. The Windsor Equestrian Lesson Program is billed at the beginning of each month with a minimum lesson package of 4 lessons per month. Lesson credits expire at the end of each month unless otherwise discussed.
Private and semi-private lessons are $65 and run for 45 minutes. Privates run 45 minutes. Semi-privates run an hour. Boarders receive a $5 discount per lesson.
Beginner Lessons include time grooming and tacking horses and learning basic horsemanship.
Haul-ins are welcome.

Christina has extensive experience in training all types of horses for careers in dressage, jumping and eventing. She also rehabs horses returning from injury. Approaching each horse as a custom project, Christina uses clear communication, sound fundamentals of horsemanship and equitation, and a thorough knowledge of biomechanics to patiently get the very best out of an equine partner. With many satisfied clients, many happy horses and collegial relationships with national, state, and local horse professionals, Christina is glad to supply references, upon request.

Windsor Equestrian is a small and friendly establishment. Our barn, shelters and paddocks are safe and well ventilated, with plenty of shade. Our riding space has a regulation 20×40-meter all-weather dressage arena, an all-weather sand/turf riding field with jumps, and a track around the perimeter. We level, drag and water our arena and turf footing regularly. We have lights for the arena. Our jewel of a property is convenient from Austin or Dripping Springs downtowns, but it is located in a quiet neighborhood where you can spend peaceful, quality time with your horse.
We welcome your inquiries. Thank you for your interest.
