Ages of our riders range from 3 to 73, so it is never too early or late to make your dream of riding a horse come true.

Facility, Horses and Attire

Our lessons run year-round in our heated riding arena or the outdoor arena and trails, and we have safe and very special teaching horses that have many years of experience. All beginning lessons are private, one-on-one instruction usually lasting a half hour. Session lengths are usually determined on an individual basis depending on age and skill. Safety is the most important thing, so proper attire is required; long pants and hard-soled shoes with a heel for your first few lessons will work fine and safety helmets are provided by the farm. From there we will make proper riding pants and boots available to you for purchase.
