Horse Riding

Learn to Ride a Horse

Whether you are interested in learning to ride, or are hoping to refine your skills, Stowe Farm offers riding lessons at all skill levels.


Our Instructors and school horses are available for scheduled lessons five days a week. Once riders are confident and comfortable on a horse, they may choose to ride in a group lesson.

Groups are made of eight riders or less, which ensures that all riders will continue to get one-on-one attention with their Instructor. In a group setting, riders will also have the opportunity to learn from their peers and make new friends. Of course, some riders will choose to ride in both group and private lessons to further enhance their ability.
