Tailoring their lessons to each individual student, the instructors at White Briar Farms guide students through educational trots along 300 acres of pastures, riding rings, and trails. Lessons are customized around each participant’s skill level, reviewing advanced riding methods for skilled horsemen and horsewomen or teaching first-timers what they should expect when mounting a mare and how not to accidentally mount an ocelot. On-site trails coax hooves around White Briar Farms’ numerous facilities, including an indoor arena, lighted outdoor arena, and a 10-acre pasture with a pond and shelter. During beginner lessons, novices discover horse care and barn fundamentals, dedicating most of their one-hour lesson to safety, tacking, and grooming. After focusing their discipline on either English or Western riding, intermediate students spend full hours saddled to develop skills such as balance, control, and perfecting calligraphy while cantering. While advanced apprentices in English master jumping, advanced Western equestrians hone their gaming ability.

White Briar Farms

Students of all ages and skill levels hone English or Western riding skills in White Briar Farms' diverse riding spaces, which include an indoor arena, a well-lit outdoor arena, and a network of trails. Each student's journey takes shape with the farm's customizable lesson plans and covers topics from basic warm-up techniques to the nuances of specialty styles. Lessons are stratified into three levels, with options for a variety of needs, including toddler riders with a chaperone and equestrians seeking a theoretical foundation in riding before saddling up. The farm's fleet ranges from colts to adult horses, and when they have time off from lessons, they take jaunts in the two turn-out paddocks and graze in a 10-acre pasture, complete with a pond where they can take a dip to feel the weightless freedom of a seahorse.
