Do you have to own a horse to be able to take lessons?
No. We have a selection of lesson horses and lease horses that we own and care for, so you can develop your skills. We can assist you on the selection of a horse suitable for your needs and budget when you are ready.
What equipment is needed to begin?
The first few lessons do not require the purchase of any equipment or gear, as long as the rider arrives in closed-toe shoes and long pants or jeans. We have a few helmets available as well. When you have selected your lesson package and elect to ride on a consistent basis, you would want to purchase riding pants, boots, gloves and a helmet to be outfitted correctly.
How often should I take a lesson?
As often as possible! Depending on your goals as a rider. Like with any athletic sport, frequency builds muscle memory needed to develop proficiency. You and your instructor will develop a personalized plan to suit your individual goals.
When can I visit the farm?
We look forward to meeting you. We are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9am-6pm, and closed on Mondays. For farm tours, please book an appointment.
Can I choose the horse I take lessons on?
Your instructor will match you to the horse that will be perfectly suited to your ability and goals. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and experience to match the horse and rider level of skill. It is a long known industry fact, that the more horses you ride, the better you become.
Can I watch my child/spouse/friend ride?
Spectators welcome, cheerleaders encouraged! We also have a heated lounge with suitable indoor restroom, hot chocolate and Wi-Fi.
