Riding Lessons for Adults and Children
The Flying G Ranch is a full service equestrian center, offering riding lessons, trail riding, and full service boarding. We have approximately 30 school horses available for lessons, and a 22 stall barn with indoor and outdoor riding arenas. We also have some of the best trail riding in eastern Oklahoma.
The Flying G Ranch offers an unparalleled riding lesson experience!
Horsemanship skills, team work, and fun are the most important factors in all our lessons. Experienced instructors use only positive methods with students and each student is allowed to progress at their own rate, you will find no pressure here! Our school horses are trustworthy and kind so every rider can have a great ride. To keep learning fun lessons include lots of instructed riding time plus games, barrel races, pole bending, and the always popular trail rides. Instead of hours riding in circles our riders enjoy a variety of activities designed to increase their horsemanship skills, build camaraderie, and instill a love of horses and riding. Riders of all skill levels, ages 7 years and older are welcome, and riders must be at least 48 inches tall.
Lessons are held in all weather in one of our three riding locations, the large outdoor arena, our indoor arena, or on our miles and miles of trails.
Our lessons are for riders who are committed
to riding at least once a week on a weekly basis.
Lessons are two hours long, with a minimum of 1 hour of time in
the saddle. Students learn safe ground handling skills while they
enjoy grooming their mounts before each ride. Students learn how to
properly tack up a horse and how to properly cool off and untack their
mounts when the lesson is over.
Also popular are our Half/Half lessons with 30 minutes of arena time and a 30 minute trail ride.
Lessons cost: $50 per lesson (group).

Lessons are held year round. Please call us for the current lesson schedule. If you cannot make your scheduled lesson, please note that we require 24 hours advance notice of cancellation of a scheduled lesson, or the rider will owe the cost of the lesson.

We offer group trail rides for small and large groups on the picturesque
trails of the ranch. Trail rides offer 1 hour time in the saddle
featuring large open pastures (cattle included!), on winding wooded
trails (wildlife sighting common), up and down hills, and through creeks
and streams. Keep your eyes open, you might just spot
our cattle, deer, turkeys, and a variety of smaller native
birds including indigo buntings, orioles, egrets, and a variety of hawks.
Our trail rides are challenging, but suitable for beginners, and our
trail horses are well trained and make riding fun.
The vistas are fantastic and the views of the Tulsa skyline like none
you have ever seen. Trial rides are scheduled year round.
The basic trail ride package includes 1 hour of time in the saddle, horses
are tacked up and ready for your arrival. For those who enjoy a little
extra horse time we welcome your help untacking, grooming, and treating
the horses when we are done riding. Please wear weather appropriate
clothing, boots with a heel (however closed toe and closed heel shoes are
sifficient), and we can provide helmets.
Reservations are required for trail rides, so please contact us, to make your reservation. If you cannot make your scheduled ride, please note that we require 24 hours advance notice of cancellation of a scheduled ride, or the rider(s) will owe the cost of the ride.

Give your horse the good life by living year round at that Flying G Ranch. Situated in the rolling hills of Sand Springs, near the Arkansas River, the Flying G Ranch offers horse boarding on the 2000 acre ranch. Horses enjoy access to acres and acres of turnout including the pastures, woods, creeks and ponds that dot the property. Our varied terrain and large open pasture makes for strong minds and bodies. Horses at the Flying G receive the very best in boarding care.
The Flying G Ranch is a functional cattle ranch so there is lots of activity on the ranch. Horses are not only checked over during feedings but the level of activity on the ranch allow us to monitor the horses throughout the day. The family lives on the ranch and the proprietor's house is adjacent to the horse pasture and barn area allowing even greater monitoring of the horses activities.

All boarders have access to our large outdoor arena (with excellent sand footing), our enclosed, well lit, indoor arena (with manufactured sand footing), and our solid walled and safe round pen.
