We believe that riding horses is much more than just another activity - its one of the best ways to teach important life lessons to our young people such a hard work, patience, confidence, and compassion. Adults will find the experience just as enlightening and rewarding, all while finding a much needed escape.
First time riders can come to introductory lesson in long pants and a hard soled shoe with a heel.
We STRONGLY recommend getting proper riding gear as soon as possible.
10 Lesson Package $500
Our hour long lesson include 30 minutes of riding as well as 15-20 minutes of working with the horses out of the saddle (such as grooming, racking up, leading, etc.) before and after each lesson. Learning to be comfortable and capable handling horses from the ground is an important part of horsemanship. Just like a semester at school, our riding package is designed to help develop your horseback riding skills over a period of time. Each student will have a weekly scheduled time with make up times available if needed for flexibility.
Practice makes perfect!
We recommend riding at least once, preferably twice a week to develop your skills.
At this time, we are accepting students who ride on a weekly basis. Only lessons used will count towards your package total if you give minimum 24 hour notice. That way if you are sick or on vacation, it does not count towards your semester of 10 lessons. We do not issue refunds on partially used lesson packages. Packages are recommended to be used within 6 months.

Riding at Wentz Stables is like being a part of a family that is always there for you. Not only is riding good for the body, it nourishes the mind. Wentz Stables is my happy place and I can't imagine life without being there!
Wentz Stables is about family. Not the cliche "family owned", but a true family where you belong. You share fun and challenges, receive guidance from generations of caring, supportive lifelong professionals. All of this at the best facility in the Lehigh Valley.
Wentz Stables is a caring, loving and professional training facility to both my American Saddlebred horse and me. We are both flourishing. I greatly appreciate it and love being part of the Wentz family. We can't wait until show season!
I consider myself a horse person - I’ve had horses for over 40 years. During these years, I boarded in and visited many stables, but nothing can compare to the care and warmth I receive at Wentz. Not only are they an amazing group of trainers, but are thoughtful caregivers. Tara and the team are unmatched in their training abilities, and it truly brings me joy to watch them work. They treat each horse & rider with respect, and keep their best interests in mind while also encouraging them to succeed. At Wentz Stables, we aren’t just boarders and horses - we’re a team.
The most enjoyable aspect of riding horses is the bond you create between horse and rider. The bonus in my case is getting to share my love of riding with my daughter. Watching her grow from a nervous rider in the beginning to one that showcases confidence, determination & passion in her riding, thanks to the team at Wentz Stables, and knowing that she will carry those life lessons with her is the best feeling. Sharing a true passion with my daughter strengthens our bond together and brings me joy knowing that we are creating a life-time of memories together.
