North Texas Equestrian Center (NTEC) has been in the same location, teaching riders at every level to reach their highest potential for over 30 years. NTEC specializes in English riding lessons including: Dressage, Hunters, Jumpers, ParaDressage, and Eventing. We do not give Western riding lessons. Dressage, ParaDressage, Show Jumping, and Eventing are Olympic sports. For a description of English riding verses Western riding, please follow this link.
At NTEC, our goal is to produce confident and effective riders at every level from beginners to the most advanced levels, including Grand Prix. The safety of both horse and rider are paramount with an emphasis on correctness based in the European tradition of training. The lesson program at NTEC is designed around each student’s needs. Our certified riding instructors help each individual reach their goals, whether that be to ride for pleasure or compete at the highest levels of equestrian sport.
Lessons for Beginners
We offer private lessons as well as group lessons with our well trained school horses. Riders are assessed during their first lesson and matched with horses according to their abilities and goals. Riders will progress with confidence to walking, trotting, cantering, and to more advanced training. Please view our single lesson and lesson package pricing list, and contact the office to schedule.
Lessons for Hunters and Jumpers
NTEC is a United States Equestrian Federation Elite Training Center with multiple awards from the United States Hunter Jumper Association. Hunters and Jumpers involve the rider guiding their horse over a predetermined course which includes jumping obstacles with increasing levels of difficulty.
If your goal is to compete in hunters or jumpers, we will help you reach your highest potential. Students may ride one of our lesson horses which include competition horses and school masters, or students may ride their own horses. NTEC has trained riders in hunters and jumpers from beginners to the Hunter Derby Ring and Grand Prix Show Jumping, and we invite you to join our very successful program.
