Featherbrook Farm facilitates equine-human friendships with professional riding instruction and fun horse parties for riders of all ages and abilities. During private and semi-private lessons, a knowledgeable riding pro will impart expert information on all aspects of horse riding and care. Students take in classical dressage instruction and the fundamentals of horse safety, horse grooming, and proper etiquette for horse weddings. Lessons employ positive reinforcement for both horse and rider, ensuring minimal kinks in the circle of animal harmony. Alternatively, riders who want all-day exposure to the equine lifestyle can opt for a four-hour day with the horses, during which they’ll join a maximum of 8–10 riders for fun activities including horse painting, bareback riding, horseshoe craft-making and barn-jumping. Horse days run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and riders should bring their own lunch.

Featherbrook Farm

Featherbrook Farm's head trainer and instructor Lisa Avaloz draws upon a lifetime of equine experience and an international network of colleagues. The farm fosters interspecies cooperation through lessons, camps, and birthday parties. Riding lessons instill in young riders the importance of grooming, form, and confidence, rewarding proper handling skills with positive reinforcement. Beginning students start on a lunge line to improve their positioning, strengthen their seat, and gain a feel for their horse. Safety remains of utmost importance throughout the lesson. All students must wear helmets while riding and avoid giving horses celebratory piggyback rides after completing a session.

Featherbrook Farm conducts weekly camps from June to August for 6–14 youngsters at a time. Campers ride twice each day and establish a solid foundation of horsemanship through grooming, first aid, and studying horse anatomy. In addition to education, fun and excitement abound as children play games and make crafts with new friends.

Customer Reviews

My girls had a blast and learned so much. What a great opportunity to learn about the care of horses and get to experience one on one time with them.

We had a wonderful experience there and the trainer was very kind and understanding of my overwhelmed daughter, who was scared. It ended up being a very positive and super fun day for her, who wants to come back again soon! Thanks a lot for going above and beyond!
