Kilham Farm’s multitalented staff members train horses and aspiring riders on a vista-filled, 62-acre plot nestled in the Nicasio Valley and bordered by creeks and ponds. Three separate training arenas provide indoor and outdoor venues for all-weather instruction in the art of equine bonding. After trainers pair specific ponies and riders based on experience, personality, and willingness to share sugar cubes, students receive individual instruction in essential grooming, tacking, and riding techniques. Beginner sessions include critical horsemanship training. In addition to covered arenas and large, well-lit barns with grooming areas and tack rooms, Kilham Farm hosts an outdoor sand arena and Grand Prix field. On the professional course, experienced students fine-tune jumping and riding abilities in full training programs designed to ready human and horse duos for statewide steeplechasing and steeple-wrestling competitions.
