On its scenic Palmetto farmland, HillFord Farm's stable of proud steeds and expert instructors impart equine education to saddle sitters of all ages. Across two private, 30-minute riding lessons, aspiring equestrians ages 4 through 16 can ascertain the foundational framework for several types of riding, whether for competition, pleasure, or old-timey train heisting. Lessons place an emphasis on safety, instilling students with the proper etiquette to display around the barn and on their horses. Dedicated to the health of their top-notch trotters, HillFord pampers each horse with scrumptious grain and hay, daily turnout, and meticulous stall upkeep. Students can hone their trots on one of HillFord's steeds, or request a "haul in" lesson to learn on their own four-legged friend or friend in a convincing horse-mascot costume.
