Riding Lessons at Day Dreams Farm
Day Dreams Farm is accepting new students for riding lessons. Being with horses should be a positive experience and make life long memories. We teach everything from basic horse care and safety to riding and proper horse management. Lessons are at the rider’s speed, ability and comfort level. We teach using only positive training methods in a patient and loving learning environment with a very strong emphasis on proper horse care and safety. Lessons are approximately 1 1/4 hours and consists of proper grooming, tacking and learning proper horse care as well as learning to ride. We emphasize proper groundwork, safety and forming a bond with the horse based on respect and trust.

Beginners with no horse experience will be required to complete a minimum of 6 private lessons before moving into a semi-private slot.
