Guests can bring their own horses and dogs to stay for a while and enjoy the professional regulation sized dressage arena, round pens and the expertise of Jennifer L Schuck - career equine professional riding instructor and guide. The horseback riding experience is unique as it is only your private group of 1-6 riders and can be on-farm with obstacle course or off - farm.
You are in complete control of your horse under the guidance of Jennifer -your horse does not just walk behind a horse in front of it. You have free access to the barn and pastures during your farmstay and are free to visit and interact with the 16+ horses as you wander the 25 acres. Non-lodging guests are also welcome to visit and enjoy pasture walks, carriage rides, hands-on workshops, unicorn sessions, "pony party" and all of the family and kid friendly horse activities. Come enjoy the beauty of nature.
