$90 for Three 45-Minute Private Horseback-Riding Lessons ($180 Value)

Geared toward young riders interested in learning the hunter/jumper discipline, riding lessons impart horsemanship skills atop the academy’s trained, experienced horses. Helmets are provided.

Prairie Star Farm

When not cantering in the outdoor sand ring, leaping over water in the grass jumping field, and trotting down wooded trails and wetlands, Prairie Star’s horses graze in their paddocks at their home at Old Barrington Farm. Beyond its expansive amenities, the facility is home to the North Barrington Riding Academy, whose instructors foster a supportive, goal-oriented environment as they groom young riders to become accomplished competitors in the sport of hunter/jumper. In inclement weather, lessons can move indoors to the 85'x210' heated ring, where parents or spectators can observe from a viewing room complete with a fireplace, wireless Internet, and flat-screen TV.
