Welcome to Briarwood Farms
We teach lessons on your own horse or on a Briarwood schoolmaster. The lesson horses we can offer to a student through our program are schooled to help riders learn safely and confidently. Our group of lessons horses is extensive. We have several ponies for the little beginners, we have horses skilled in teaching the basics of cavaletti work and jumping, and we have horses that are currently competitive on the local show circuit. We believe that a true horseman will develop through developing working partnerships with a variety of horses.
OUR PROGRAM AND RATES:
$45/half hour private for beginning children
Horse Show Coaching:
We offer show coaching for our shows hosted at Briarwood, and on the road. We help each rider to design an individualized competition schedule that will encourage solid training and focused performance.
Coaching Home Show - $30.00
Coaching Away Show - $50.00
We offer a special program of leasing a horse monthly. The leasing allows a rider a glimpse into the world of the responsiblity of caring for a horse at the next level beyond the lesson program. Riders start to experience what is involved in the committment of time and effort.
Full Lease: rateable, depending on horse availability
The rider is responsible for the horse "1/2 of the time", allowing for 3-4 riding sessions a week in addition to lesson times. The rider will be assisted in creating a cohesive plan of exericise, training and practice for both horse and rider.
Saddle Club: $125/month
Offered to riders who wish to make a deeper committment to the sport, and so would like to have more practice and independent study with the horses. Riders will be permitted four self-scheduled rides within a month's time, and will be invited to attend a monthly group lecture on a variety of topics involving horsemanship.
