Welcome to Double J Riding Club! Conveniently near the intersections of I-55 and I-294, Double J was established in 2002 as a traditional riding lesson facility. Owner Cindy Johnson's goal was to establish a place where horse lovers of all ages and skill levels could ride, in a safe and beautiful environment, year-round. Double J is a has been featured as a "Best of Chicago" by Channel 10!
At Double J, our group riding lessons are the foundation of the program. They are limited to 4-5 regular riders of similar skill level. These small groupings increase safety and enjoyment of the riders, who progress more quickly because the lessons are targeted to their similar needs.
- Weekly group, private and semi-private lessons are available after school and on both Saturday and Sunday.
- Double J is also pleased to offer drop-in lessons for individuals and small groups Monday through Friday during the school day.
Whether taking group or private lessons, your rider is encouraged to come prior to the lesson and after to assist with tacking and grooming the horse. Often, riders don't want to leave Double J when it's time to go home!
Double J's summer and school holiday day camps are very popular. We are pleased to welcome groups such as Girl Scouts, area schools, preschools and other, who visit either for riding lessons or just to visit a barn and learn about the horses. We also offer homeschool classes (for 2 or more) on a per session or monthly basis.
