From beginners to experienced equestrians, we invite you to come ride with us!
For over 30 years, Timber Hills Farm has been dedicated to teach students the responsibilities and respect for horses in a lovely farm setting. We teach lessons 6 days a week by appointment only on our very own schooling horses. We customize the lesson according to the individual’s goals and abilities on a variety of seasoned schooling horses that are safe for the beginner, steady for the intermediate rider, or challenging for an advanced student. We work with riders of all ages.
Timber Hills Farm students have been enhanced by lessons that make them safer and more capable for a variety of horse activities, from trial rides, to 4-H, to local competitions, to competing in World and National equestrian events. We offer private and group lessons. A new student must begin with private lessons until they are able to join a group lesson. A private lesson is one hour in length consisting of 30-40 minutes of riding along with time spent learning how to equip and care for the horse. Group lessons are also one hour in length and rarely contain more than 3-4 students at a time. Group lessons also include time spent with instructions of care and learning how to saddle and bridle, etc.
What to Wear on your First Lesson
No specialized equipment is needed initially. Riders do need to wear jeans or long pants (no capri’s or shorts) plus shoes with hard soles. We have boots and helmets that can be borrowed. No one is allowed into the barn with flip flops or sandals, including family members. Safety is our highest priority.
Private – One Hour Lesson: $45.00
Group – One Hour Lesson: $35.00
$20 (if a lesson has been purchased during that week) $30 (if no lesson has occurred that week)
Drill team evolved as a super fun, horsemanship enhancing, and social time together. It is a GREAT activity during the “off season” from horse shows. We have used brood mares, school horses, and even show horses that have off time between seasons. It is not meant for beginner riders, but soon becomes a goal of new students to become capable enough to be included. We encourage local equestrians to bring in their horses, if possible. We often have a potluck lunch together prior to the session just for fun. Watch our Timber Hills Farm Facebook page for announcements about upcoming drill team days.
