Ann Arbor, MI

When you are ready to take your riding career to the next level, there is simply no substitute for practicing your skills outside of your weekly riding lessons. In other words, it's time to get your own horse. At Privateer Riding Academy, we understand that while horse ownership can be fun and rewarding, it can also be daunting to

 undertake on your own. To make it easier for you to take that big step, we always have a few high quality horses available for sale or lease (a lease or partial lease is a great way to get your feet wet without a huge commitment!) and if we don't have the right horse for you, we will help you go out and find that perfect match.
