Densely wooded foothills and 20 acres of lush pasture unfurling over Ellett Valley form the backdrop for Berakah Farm’s beginner and intermediate riding lessons. Instructors follow the United States Pony Club model, guiding students ages 6 and older through private lessons or group instruction capped at three participants. During one-hour lessons, students practice meter-stick posture, hone balance, and communicate with their mounts through cues such as rein, heel, and seat pressure. Riders have access to the intimate farm’s updated facilities, which include a lighted arena and a new cross-country training course where event riders can jump their horses over flower beds and grand canyon replicas.
