Welcome to Harvest Hill Farm! Our lesson program values both riding and horsemanship skills, and we hope you'll come ride with us.
Harvest Hill follows a comprehensive, six-level system. The first three levels—Introductory, Rookie & Novice Riding—are geared toward taking students who have minimal horse experience and teaching them the basic skills of riding. Most of our students opt to start at the Introductory level, even if they have taken a couple of lessons elsewhere.
To begin each lesson you will be assigned to one of our professionally trained school horses. After you have been introduced to your riding partner, you will bring the horse into our large tack room. Your instructor will guide you through the grooming steps & how to properly tack up that individual horse.
We provide certified riding helmets for the first month of lessons. Helmets are the most important piece of safety equipment riders wear, after the first month you will be required to purchase your own.
You are not expected to own a saddle if you are in the new student program or the school horse level entry program, we have saddles available. If you do wish to purchase your own, we are glad to help you get sized & find the right one.
Before your first visit we also ask that you please fill out a release form!
Harvest Hill Farm tries to maintain the highest level of quality by keeping class sizes to small groups. As part of your lesson you will be expected to get the horse ready, arrive into the arena on time and untack your horse, caring for the horses cool down needs.
