This Groupon is valid for riding lessons of all skill levels. For introductory lessons, instructors spend an hour and a half teaching riders about different types of horses and their jobs on the farm, as well as essential skills for grooming and connecting with equine friends. Students put their lessons into practice after saddling up for a round of English, Western, or hunter riding instruction.
The trainers at Allimax Farm follow the Pennsylvania Dutch horsemanship tradition, an approach that produces strong, sturdy, and well-trained horses fit for both trail rides and lessons. The Chiques Creek points the way as groups pilot their steeds over the many surrounding trails and fields while an experienced guide supervises to ensure safety and decipher any trail sign that may have been altered by prank-pulling squirrels. The farm’s lessons teach beginning to advanced riders proper technique for Working Western Trail Riding in a family-oriented environment that eschews competition in favor of confidence building and a deep appreciation for all areas of horsemanship. Topics covered might include horse temperament, nutrition, and cantering for beginners; more experienced students may further their horsemanship knowledge through instruction on reining maneuvers and the three methods of riding the trot.
