Harvesting Young Minds
We are a family owned and operated riding facility pleased to now offer English lessons for young riders throughout the Northern Virginia area.
Contact Sarah at 540.882.4546 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your riding lesson!
Note: Students with prior riding experience will need to have a private evaluation first, in order to determine the appropriate ability level and lesson placement for each student.
About Our Program
Ballentine Farm operates a riding program focused on hunter jumper English instruction, serving mainly riders at beginning and intermediate levels.
Students are encouraged to ride once a week, as we believe regular instruction yields more comprehensive results than attending intermittently. Additional lessons are also available.
We offer one hour classes, including tacking instruction and basic horse care education. We believe in the importance of horsemanship knowledge on and off the ground! Lessons are held weekly, with the option of private or group setting. Students are grouped by age and ability level, at the discretion of the instructor. We offer trained, sound and sane horses and ponies with patient and caring instructors.
We are proud to have on staff a Virginia state certified teacher for instruction, as well as a junior instructor, with over 30 years combined riding experience. Our instructors pride themselves on instilling valuable equestrian skills and knowledge, with a focus on safety and FUN!
Has your child ever wanted their own horse or pony? Allow your child to experience all the joy and dedication the responsibility entails!
We are pleased to offer a flexible schedule aimed at accommodating your needs. Lessons are offered during school hours, for children attending half day programs, as well as after school and weekends.
Please complete and bring the student registration form to the first riding evaluation or lesson.
