We recommend all students begin with a private lesson, this allows the trainer to review the farm rules, and how the program is run, allowing the students to get lay of the land. When a student is able to handle a horse alone, are they recommended by the trainer to do groups or semi-private lessons.


Lessons are offered Monday, Wednesday - Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Times are scheduled based on availability and your scheduling needs.

*Lesson spots are limited at this time.*

  • Lessons are scheduled on the hour
  • Lessons are an hour long
  • Lessons including grooming, tacking and untacking and any other horse care and handling
  • We recommend arriving at least 10 minutes early
  • Once a student is knowledgeable and able to get their horse ready for a lesson independently, without an instructor or working assistant, we recommend coming early well before the lesson time to groom and tack up.

Every effort will be made to reschedule cancelled lessons as quickly as possible. In the case of instructor emergencies or illness a substitute instructor will be provided when and if possible.


When possible, instructors may choose to teach lessons inside in the case of inclement weather. These lessons may not include saddle time, however, will cover other aspects of horses, horsemanship, horse handling, care and maintenance that is not covered or discussed when riding. These lessons ensure the riders have a well rounded equine education.

Each instructor will use their own discretion on holding indoor lessons. Please check with your instructor directly.

Ellie has her level 2 CHA certification and enjoys focusing on the biomechanics of her students.


Lina started her riding at the age of 6yrs old, she loved the partnership and bond she received from horses. At the age of 9yrs old Lina and her horse started working with trainers to learn more about training and building a partnership through ground work and saddle time. Throughout the years she worked with many trainers some including Major Jermey Beale who rode in the Olympic Games 1960 & 1964 and Kirsten Nelson from FL that specializes in the biomechanics of horse and riders together. Lina also spent a few years learning and studying with Jim Mcdonald working on better understanding horsemanship and the bond between horse and rider. Lina has spent years learning how to implement these methods onto herself, the horses she trains and students that ride with her.
