Riders work in arena

Riders mount and practice in the arena to develop confidence before going out to ride around the farm.

Let’s Ride!

At First Farm Inn, we ride horses year-round, depending on the weather.  Rain, heavy snow, extremely high winds and temperatures over 100  or below 32 degrees mean rescheduling rides.  For safety’s sake, ground conditions also play a role.  With hills, woods, ponds, pasture and riding arenas, we always have somewhere safe to ride even if the ground is somewhat muddy.

Two-hour sessions are $100 per person, geared for riders over 12 years, under 200 pounds, able and willing to sit up straight and follow directions.  This is not a “traditional trail ride” on pitiful, tired, sick, miserable horses who are in pain and plod along a standard path.  Our horses are happy, healthy, well-trained, able to do anything they’re asked to do.  That’s why we start with getting acquainted, learning to steer and practice balance and position.

For younger riders or those who just want to interact with horses from the ground, we offer a one-hour session for $50 per person.

Getting Started

Lessons begin with grooming and getting acquainted with your horse. We tack up, mount safely and correctly, then begin in the riding arena, working on basic commands and getting comfortable with your horse. After you have demonstrated control and respect for your horse, we move out and practice riding through the woods and around the farm.

Horses can be unpredictable. By coming to the farm, you accept responsibility and all liability for your experience on the ground or riding.

First Farm Inn’s colorful assortment of horse breeds and personalities will be matched as much as possible to your personality and physical attributes. It’s a very individual experience! To offer an optimum experience, we generally have fewer than five riders in a session.

As you gain balance and confidence, you will be allowed to speed up and stretch your skills. More experienced riders report riding at First Farm Inn is “like owninWhatToWearg your own horse” but with coaching to ensure that you are centered and balanced on your horse.

High Caliber Coaching Included

Unlike a traditional walking “trail ride,” you will be coached as much as you need, encouraged to build your connection and communicate quietly in a way that your horse can understand. You will learn more than you’d ever imagine about horses during your ride at First Farm Inn.
