Riding Lessons


At Hide-Away farm, we recognize horseback riding as a sport that requires dedication, practice, patience and strength like any other sport. Students are encouraged to take a minimum of one lesson a week.  We recommend that those interested in showing and progressing to upper levels take two or more lessons a week.


Monday– Friday  8:30am - 6:00 pm

Saturdays are by appointment only as we are most likely away at events. 

Hours may be subject to change depending on availability 

Students are required to arrive before their lesson to groom and tack their own horse. We recommend coming 15-30 minutes early to ensure enough time to get ready so you can be mounted and ready at the time your lesson begins. Please expect to be at the barn 1.5 Hours minimum.
