Nestled on a beautiful, secluded piece of land, the quarter-century-old Morgan View Farm offers lessons for fledgling horse-fanciers and veteran hoofers hoping to progress to the farm's competitive show-ring level. One-hour riding lessons are held in the farm’s scenic riding facilities, which feature panoramic views of the countryside's lush, green rolling hills and endlessly shifting woodland labyrinths. Each lesson focuses heavily on building basic horsemanship skills and confidence in the saddle, emphasizing respect for equine companions through simple gestures like holding open the stable door as they exit.
