Our winter program is for riders who would like to continue riding through the winter months of January and February. 

Students can be on "Call List" for lesson and practice ride availability.  The lessons will be taught on the 2 warmest days of each week.  These days may include weekends depending on availability and weather.  Lessons will be first come first serve and will have priority over practice rides.  Riders will pay as they go so if it doesn't work into your schedule you can skip a week and pick up lessons as you have the time.  Payment envelopes are in the Indoor Arena and next to payment box in the main barn.  Riders can also do practice rides on other days with approval from instructor and a parent must be present to supervise the student the entire time the student is on the farm.  Each student will receive periodic instructions and changes as to what they are to practice in their practice ride.

Half Leases

 Ponies and some Horses are available for half-lease.  In a half-lease you take your normal lesson each week, and have full use of the pony 2 other days of the week. You can also use the pony twice a month in clinics or horse shows.  The pony will be automatically reserved for you for shows and clinics.  Half-leases are good for those



























individuals who are in between horses, or who are interested in owning a horse, but aren't quite ready to commit to full ownership. It's an economical way to experience the joys of horse ownership with out all of the responsibility.  
 
 
$350/month includes tack and weekly  lessons.
 
Some lease horses are available for off farm lease or lease to own.  Call for more details.
