Lessons at Rivendell Farm
Rivendell is a farm devoted to the exploration of the relationship between horse and rider. It is our goal to help you make that magical connection and let horses become a part of your life. We offer beginner, intermediate, advanced and therapeutic riding lessons for children and adults.
Our mission clearly is geared to more than just riding. We seek to help people, young and young at heart, who understand the emotional bond that can exist between horse and rider, and seek to find it.
Punctual arrivals are essential for obvious reasons. Scheduling the right horse for the right rider requires you to be there at the time reserved. Please respect the rights of the students who are waiting for their mounts to be groomed and cared for.
