As a Community Farm we offer you a way to be affordably involved with horses. We provide quality horses, experiences and lessons for children and adults in a beautiful and natural setting.
The foundation of our riding program is called the CRAFTS of Partnership: Communication, Respect, Acknowledgement, Friendship, Trust & Setting Good Boundaries. We believe our animals are teachers and they are always at work empowering humans to have higher self-confidence and self-esteem. Our staff are experts at helping individuals get beyond the natural fears that come up when being around horses and around our other animals.
Payment for monthly scheduled lessons is due the 15th of the month before the service is provided. Please note: There is a 30 day notice of termination.
Missed classes must be made up within 7 days of missed lesson.

Beginner Lesson ages 6+ is offered Saturdays from 9:45 – 11:15 and is for those with limited to no experience looking to have a full horsemanship lesson. Each lesson will start with bonding, learning about and caring for the horses. Students will then ride, typically starting off with the first few lessons in a Western Saddle, the student can switch to an English saddle as they and the instructor see fit. On horseback they learn how to have a balanced seat, steering and voice commands and will work their way up to walk, trot, canter. Our instructors teach the core fundamentals of riding. We are not a competitive barn, instead focusing on the whole horse package, we will give your beginner a love of the horses and the skills to move forward to pursue other forms of riding.
