River Mountain Farm’s experienced equestrians saddle up to train students on a 100-acre facility that boasts five barns, eight large fields, three outdoor arenas, and a heated indoor arena with secure Polytrack footing. Obedient schoolmaster horses trot into daily lessons and fill the air with reassuring whinnies as students use provided equipment to prep and tack their chosen steeds. Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
Group lessons corral up to three riders in one of three outdoor arenas or an 80’x200’ indoor arena outfitted with overhead watering and a music system that paces horses with the galloping drumbeats of heavy metal.
