Riding Lessons

Horseback riding lessons for all ages are  offered in a safe environment under Instructors.  We teach English riding using horsemanship safety techniques along with saddleseat equitation. A “no excuses” method of teaching,  students learn discipline and practice is the formula for success (as in life itself) while still having fun!  Lessons are tailored for the rider’s goals. Riding lessons here are more than riding a horse. Adults and children become part of Boone’s Farm family of riders where everyone is welcome! Good sportsmanship, respect of animals and team spirit is a must at Boone’s Farm & Stables while lasting friendships are made through a mutual love of horses.

Lessons are taught in a heated indoor arena that provides for year round and foul weather riding.  Our horses are safe and have years of experience.  Many are former show horses. We teach group and private lessons. We also offer buggy lessons so you can even learn to drive a horse to a cart. Western & bareback lessons are available too!
Betsy Boone is a Lifetime Member of American Riding Instructors Association (ARIA) and is the only Certified Level III Saddle Seat Instructor in the southeast & selected a “Top 50 Instructor” for 2009.  Betsy is also a Test Center Administrator for new Instructors.

Want to compete?

As the students progress, they can further develop their skills and test their ability by competing at horse shows in Academy Classes.  These classes are offered at many  horse shows in our area and across the country.  You do not need to own a horse or equipment for these classes.  Boone’s Farm provides the horses, equipment and transports the horses to the show.  These shows are fun for the whole family where you make friends with other riders and families from other stables.

A horse or pony of your own?

If you would like a  horse or pony of your own, we will first and foremost educate you on ALL aspects of horse ownership.  If this is for you, we will help select the perfect horse to match the rider whether for pleasure or the show ring.

Many students that started out in our academy program have advanced to show horses. Our  riders, who come from across the southeast, compete on local, regional and national levels.  Many riders have won National and World Championships on their  horses trained at Boone’s Farm & Stables!

Whether you are a beginner rider or have years of riding experience and would like to learn something new, we can provide lessons that are educational ,challenging and a great way to get fit.  Come have fun and ride with us!
