Certified Horsemanship Association master trainer Denise Hanna and her trusted staff send equestrians of all skill levels trotting across the verdant acres and all-weather hoof-stomping grounds of Hannaberry Farm. Groups of up to four students strap on their riding boots for two 45-minute lessons, learning to ride atop one of the farm’s gallant steeds, or, in case of a shortage, a felt-covered bicycle. Experienced students can opt for advanced lunge lessons at no additional cost, during which the student focuses on balance and positioning while the staff member controls the horse. These sessions are recommended for jumpers, dressage riders, and riders preparing to impress at a mechanical-bull competition. Lessons run hourly every day of the week and year-round, with an outdoor dressage arena, stadium jumping field, and cross-country field for warmer months and a sizable indoor arena during less generous weather.

Hannaberry Farm

As horses frolic in the open air and nuzzle each other in the fields, Denise Berry-Hanna draws upon master-trainer certification from the Certified Horsemanship Association to oversee a skilled team of instructors. Pupils of all ages learn about English–style riding with an emphasis on safety. Students ride year-round in an indoor arena or on an outdoor riding arena with sand and limestone footing. Trainers focus on English–style riding; the farm also has a large dressage arena, a cross-country field, and a stadium jumping area for advanced riders. A summer camp for kids aged 6–15 gives youngsters a warm-weather activity other than taking No Running signs to the Supreme Court, and horses board at the farm in warm, hay-filled stalls or on the rolling meadows.

Denise it was a pleasure to visit your home. We will definitely be in touch for as many lessons as we can afford. Thank you for the great lessons. Vikki gave Alyssa her lesson yesterday and she was wonderful as well. The young ladies you have helping you are very pleasant and I enjoyed meeting and talking with all of you. Thank you for taking the time to explain the higher degree of skill that the English saddle required that my daughter is trying to master. And please let your husband know his honey will require us to lesson-up regularly to restock, lol.
