Nestled in a scenic countryside setting, Three Angel Farm helps beginning saddle surfers ages 3 and up become equestrian authorities, plopping them atop reliable, seasoned school horses. The professional staff—who have experience in a therapy program certified by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association—teach with patience and respect for both animal and rider during the lessons, which emphasize safety and technique to a group of four or five horse drivers. Three Angel Farm provides helmets and tailors its classes to the riders' needs. Students leave classes with a fresh set of horseback skills, a greater respect for the animals, and a better sense of what traveling was like before the car was finally domesticated in 1983.
Three Angel Farm
Nestled amid the scenic Georgian countryside, Three Angel Farm invites students of all experience levels to settle into the saddles of seasoned, reliable training horses. Skilled instructors draw on their experiences working with special-needs children in therapeutic riding settings as they carefully match mount and pupil, limiting class sizes to around five in order to give each saddle-filler adequate attention. Above all else, the farm’s equestrians prioritize communication and emotional bonding between rider and horse to help them develop strong relationships and respect for one another despite their differing tastes in footwear.
