Riding Lessons in the Edmonton Area?
 
Hello everyone. I've been wanting to take up riding lessons again (my previous experience with riding being a meager few months of lessons when I was 7 and the occasional trail ride, so close to none at all).

I was wondering if anyone here would be able to suggest a good (clean, friendly, and knowledgeable) stable that offers lessons to a *very* beginner 18 year old in the Edmonton (Alberta) area?

I am a bit, er, fluffy (ok, quite fluffy, 240 pounds of fluffy) even though I am working at losing weight (I lost 4 pounds this week!). Would any stable in edmonton be able to accommodate this (larger horses), or should I wait until I'm lighter?

What side of Edmonton do you live on? I know some stables in Sherwood Park, Ardrossen, Beaumont, Leduc. I go to one in Leduc.

This is a listing of many stables in Alberta. You just have to go through it and see which ones are in your area to see which ones give lessons.

Hope that helps.

I'm on the far west end of Edmonton, just past WEM. I could in theory bus to sherwood park.

Thank you for the link, I will go check it out!
