What kind of clothes will you need?
Ideally, we would like all of our students to have riding pants, boots, and a USEF-approved riding helmet.
However we understand that riding lessons are can be an introduction to the sport and you may want to wait before you invest in the proper equipment. The next best thing would be a pair of boots with a half-inch sole, a pair of jeans, and a snug fitting bicycle helmet. Shorts or nylon pants are not allowed due to safety issues.
When you are ready for regular lessons, we will encourage you to make the proper attire purchases, what you wear does affect how you ride. We will happily provide you with recommendations and guidance about how and what to buy once you’re ready to take your riding experience to the next level!
Ride with Rocking Horse Farm
Fall Special - Now through December 1, buy one/get one free for all first time students!
Our goal at Rocking Horse Farm is to provide a safe and exciting environment for the whole family to enjoy. Students are taught how to care and respect the horses they own and ride.
Scheduling and Fees
The barn is open every day except for Monday. Lessons are available each afternoon, after-school and on the weekends. Students will get the most out of their riding experience if they ride at least once a week. If for any reason you have to cancel a lesson, there will be a day and time set aside for anyone that needs to come and makeup a riding time. With our indoor arena, we do offer lessons year-round. A private lesson is $55 for a half hour. Please contact us for more options and rates, including lesson packages.
Our teaching focuses on:
Overall care on how to lead, groom and tack-up a horse
Effective and safe riding techniques
Constant awareness of their horse and their surroundings
Our approach helps students and horses gain trust in each other. Through hard-work and dedication, students build coordination, confidence and exude assurance in their own abilities.
At Rocking Horse Farm, we teach our students to be responsible riders and caretakers of their horses, and we start that instruction from the very beginning.
