Our instructors are CHA certified (certified horsemanship association) and can teach age ages and levels from brand new beginners to experienced riders.
Our horses are treated as our own and love their jobs which makes Lessons fun, enjoyable and safe for our riders.
We teach from the ground up so all students learn everything from, care, grooming, handling in addition to in the saddle Lessons. From pleasure riders wanting to do this for fun to ambitious riders who want to show and compete, we can help!

Everyone I have met has been incredibly kind and welcoming. It is a very relaxing and peaceful place to take lessons and spend time with the horses. The horses are clearly well loved and cared for by everyone at the farm. Kaitlyn is a patient and encouraging instructor who works hard to bring out the best in her students- even when they aren't having their best days in the saddle!
H&H is a very friendly and professional farm where instructors and working students support riders every step of the way to develop skills and knowledge in an environment of respect, safety, and encouragement. It has become my happy place that even on a “low” day, which is inevitable, I still feel good that I made progress toward my goals. I couldn’t give H&H a higher recommendation!
We always start with an introductory lesson that can range from one hour to one and a half hours. This lesson includes all safety training and a brief session where our instructor gets to know your goals. Then the lesson will cover horse handling, grooming, tacking, mounting etc. Typically the lesson will include some in the saddle time discussions basic balance, confidence and control which is the foundation for future lessons.
We follow CHA curriculum so each student knows what to expect and has a checklist of lesson plans before moving on to more advanced classes.
Our instructors are CHA certified which required rigorous training (for more information about their certification process please visit http://www.cha-ahse.org/)
All of our instructors are avid riders themselves and immersed in the industry. They can offer their own experiences being working students under top nationally recognized trainers as well as their own horse owning/riding experience.

Each of our story is a little different, but we all got into it for the same reason: Our love of horses.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student learn and have that "aha" moment in the saddle and watch as their passion for horses grows.
We range from children as young as 4 to adults as old as 70+! All levels and experience levels are welcome.
We do some outreach with local scouts and have training to accomodate special needs students and can provide therapeutic lessons/intruction as well.
Do you research! Watch your instructor ride and teach lessons...see if their teaching style aligns with your learning style.
