Horseback Riding

Lessons

We offer riding lessons for riders new and advanced, young and old. If you've always wanted to try horseback riding, we have classes for people of all ages from three and up. Toddlers can become comfortable around horses and older kids can start learning riding basics with our lessons tailored to their ages and level of comfort. If you're an adult and have never had the chance to try horseback riding, we have both group and private lessons so you can try it out with your friends or on your own.

Forest View Farms also offers driving lessons for people who want to learn to drive a carriage or wagon. Contact us today to schedule your lessons. You'll be glad you did!

English

Forest View Farms offers English riding style classes for riders 8 years of age and older, beginners through advanced.

Students between the age of 5 to 7 are eligible for pony lessons.

English riding is recommended for riders who want to compete in riding competitions. Many people also find it easier to move from English riding to Western-style riding, so learning English riding is a good place to start for people who want to learn multiple styles. If you are not sure which style is right for you, contact us and we can help determine which style might be best for your interests.
