Sarah J. Valliant has over a decade of experience in different equine disciplines and training styles. She is a CHA certified riding instructor (Certified Horsemanship Association) and has a passion for teaching youth and adults how to partner with horses by promoting a loving attitude towards one's horse and self.
Horseback riding lessons are offered to children and adults of all ages. Lessons are tailored to what your specific goals are with riding, wether it is just a fun activity for the kids, or you're an adult looking to pick up a new sport! If you are just looking to get into riding and see if you like it, private lessons are a good option. Private lessons are $100 for sixty minutes with an instructor. For older children and adults, the goal of my lesson program is to prepare you to handle horses and ride them independently. The first few lessons we will spend about half the time on the ground learning how to groom and saddle your horse. Once you have the ability to saddle, groom, and lead your horse confidently, more of the lesson will be spent in the saddle working on riding skills.
As a certified riding instructor, I have based my lesson program upon the Certified Horsemanship Association's standers for equestrian programs. Much of my lesson curriculum is based upon their guidelines. If you would like to learn more, feel free to look them up!
I offer English and western riding lessons. I do not offer jumping lessons.

This is a group class from 2:00PM- 4:00PM every Saturday designed for mature teenagers and adults who have ridden a horse between zero and fifty times. In this two hour group class students will spend an hour in the saddle learning basic riding techniques and getting comfortable on the back of a horse. This is the perfect lesson to cultivate trust and connect with a horse, and develop muscle memory of the basic skills riding skills. Riders will learn basic control at the walk and trot; how to stop, start, and steer. Riders will be educated on different styles of riding (ex. English, Western) and have the opportunity to dip their toes across many disciplines. An additional hour will be spent on the ground learning how to saddle, groom, lead, veterinary first aid/ horse health, and other essential horse handling skills. There will be a maximum of five riders per class. There will be one certified riding instructor and a minimum of two instructor aids to more personalize the lesson to your specific goals. This is the perfect lesson to get

Saddle club is a two hour program run through Los Gatos farms for children 5-15. Saddle Clubber’s spend one hour in the saddle learning how to steer and control their horse while riding, and one hour on the ground playing fun games with the horses and other children their age. This might be decorating the horses with washable paint, leading the horses in a timed obstacle course, fun horse themed card games, scrap booking, painting horseshoes etc.. It’s a great program for kids to socialize, make friends, and acquire a new skill in an exciting outdoor environment!
