Ninety-minute group riding lessons ($60 each) teach English and Western styles with curricula catered to each student's skill level. Likewise, at five-day summer camps ($400 each), boys and girls learn aspects of riding and basic horsemanship. Under the tutelage of experienced riders, campers practice safety, hone various riding techniques, and develop the leadership needed to advise America's first horse president. Epona Farms also offers coaching ($280–$375/month) and private lessons ($40+).

Epona Farms

On a ranch in the country, Epona Farms' trainers share the equestrian spirit with newcomers, youth, and champions-to-be in their indoor arenas and outdoor sand area. Triona Watson, an advanced coach since 1975, draws from her international experience to head up the facility's instructional programs. Her riding curriculum centers on three components: dressage, stadium jumps, and cross-country riding. Along with these focuses, her students learn English and Western styles of riding in an indoor arena and outdoor sand area. As spring turns to summer, Epona's horse whisperers expand their lessons into immersive day camps that teach horsemanship and leadership skills to adolescents, and let the children interact with other animals, such as rabbits and sheep. Younger children may be enchanted by PeeWee Pony School, a program that pairs pintsize novices with appropriate-size steeds to help instill a love for horses and riding at a young age. Additionally, the instructors focus on community outreach and work with special-needs children and young adults.
