Students can learn Western or English riding style during custom lessons tailored to three skill levels. Those at lower skill levels receive private lessons, and students occasionally fuse into small groups by the time they reach advanced level. Beginner sessions cover grooming, tacking, and riding; intermediate students prepare their own horses before the lesson and then spend the hour in the saddle learning balance, control, and proper warm-up technique. Advanced sessions also require independent steed prep beforehand and focus on the nuances of the student’s specialty style, such as jumping or gaming.<p>
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.
