Horse Riding

Learn to Ride a Horse

Whether you are interested in learning to ride, or are hoping to refine your skills, Stowe Farm offers horse riding  at all  levels.

Licensed Instructors  available for scheduled lessons .

Weekly horse riding  lessons beginning from 2 pm till 7 pm each Tue, Wed, along with Thursdays. While most of our classes are group, we  offer private as well.  Teaching beginner, as much as advanced, we have something for all. Children just beginning should schedule 1/2 hour class since their bodies will not be accustomed to using these new muscles. In addition to walk , trot, canter,  we offer jumping and trail classes.

In a group setting, riders will also have the opportunity to learn from  peers while making new friends.  Riders are scheduled into groups that best fit their ability. Stowe Farm suggest's weekly riding, as a result, the group will move forward together.  Furthermore , as a weekly rider, you will be able to gather your steed, in addition to grooming and tacking your horse up. These task's are part of riding,  therefore we encourage children to stay to groom and put out their horse as well. Since some horses are used again, another horse would be available for your child to groom.
