Thank you for your interest!
We are a private family-owned riding facility located just minutes from downtown Jefferson. Our mission is to provide a safe, fun learning environment for adults and children alike.
From beginners as young as five years old, to intermediate adults looking for some constructive time in the saddle, we hope to foster the love of horseback riding with a focus on correct equitation, and ever-careful horsemanship in the saddle as well as on the ground.
We offer a special experience here at our farm- one that you may not find at many other riding facilities around!
Please send us a message if you would like to learn more!
We are committed to the safety and education of both horse and rider, and want to share our love of these beautiful animals with our friends and neighbors in a way that enriches their lives- as only horses can.

We offer two riding lesson options in ADDITION to a weekly unmounted lesson. Class selection will be done by your instructor, and will be based on individual rider needs and ability.
These classes are 30 minutes long, and focus primarily on riding/grooming/ground safety. Tacking/untacking is done by the instructor, as this is a task that is usually a bit over the young beginner's head and requires reach/strength that they may not yet possess. The lesson begins upon arrival, includes watching the pony being tacked, assisting in brushing, and then riding for the remaining time.
This class is best for the beginner, as an introduction to riding and very basic safety.
This class is composed of 3-5 students who demonstrate the ability to listen to instruction, are capable of controlling their horse or pony at a walk and trot, have the basics of ground safety mastered, and show the initiative to help and/or complete the tacking process on their own. This class is 60 minutes long, which includes the time it takes to groom, tack, ride, and then untack at the end of the lesson.
These lessons are the some of the most fun for our riders, as they provide an opportunity for camaraderie, teamwork, and relationship-building within our riding school. We use US Pony Club curriculum which is unparalleled, internationally. Testing between the levels is offered and encouraged!
