WE DO NOT OFFER DAILY HORSE RENTALS OR TRAIL RIDES TO THE PUBLIC
BOARDING Available Late Spring/Summer 2022 (Full until then) Standard Stall Board Rare opportunity to join our unique, small atmosphere offering top quality care, instruction, and services for you and your horse. Full Care only. Must be enrolled in weekly lesson program.
Full Care Show Board For higher maintenance expectations & services including specific blanketing requests such as double blanketing, hoodies, slinkies, stall sheets, stall blankets, fleece stable blankets, fly/sun sheets during spring/summer, daily grooming, hand-walking, customized turnout- anything deviating from our standard board options that is an increase to our labor costs.
LAYOVER BOARD We can occasionally accommodate layover boarding for those passing through the area for travel or for horse showing.
LESSONS Hour (8 and up) Our Program BENEFITS: Quality, customized, cross-training, safe. Our attention is on YOU in our calm, safe, quiet arena environment where you can focus fully & comfortably on your ride without distraction!
Itty Bitty Lesson Program (All Children Ages 3 to 7) Hour Because tiny tots have not yet developed the hand/eye coordination required for horseback riding to be safe, we do NOT offer riding to children this young. We do offer horsemanship experiential education lessons or these students. If you wish for your young one to take a session with us where learning about horses: grooming, petting, hand-walking, grazing, giving treats and more is of interest, we can customize learning sessions for this age. REMINDER: No Riding,
We offer riding lessons to both adults and children (Western and English lessons are available). Whether you are interested in riding horses for pleasure, show, or both, we can accommodate. There's more to horses than just riding! Lessons at Meadowthorpe Farm focus on developing sound overall horsemanship skills. We teach the care and handling necessary to safely work with horses... safety of horse and rider comes first! Because understanding horse behavior is important, we teach riders how to think like a horse does! Taking the time to learn good basics pays off and produces better, well-rounded equestrians. We don't rush students to learn on "our schedule " because we want our lessons to be an enjoyable and successful experience that leaves everyone feeling happy and accomplished at the end of a session.
We are an ideal program for students who enjoy a quiet environment with personalized, one-to-one attention, and customized coaching. We avoid sensory overload-with many riders and/or lessons happening in the ring at one time. Each student is unique, and our training reflects this.

TRAINING RIDES Training rides are available as needed with Coaches/Trainers. All boarded horses at this facility MUST maintain adequate fitness levels in order to keep a stall at our facility. (Twice weekly ride requirement minimum!) This is important for mental and emotional well-being for our equine residents and to prevent boredom. Exceptions: injured/retired horses or otherwise as communicated with management.
