Our riding instruction is tailored to the specifics and details of riding while ensuring our lessons are fun and educational. We wish to share our love of riding with everyone from beginner to advanced and keep safety as the primary goal. Everyone is welcome whether they ride competitively or just for pleasure.
At RMF, we believe knowledge on caring for and working with horses is just as important as knowing how to ride. Every student is taught how to catch their horse or pony in the field and how to groom it before and after each ride. Over time, students will be able to do this independently, but to begin, an instructor will accompany each student to the field and oversee grooming. When these tasks are complete, the student will head to the ring with the instructor for their riding lesson.
For safety reasons, all students and guests working around the horses are required to wear closed-toe shoes. We recommend boots or tennis shoes. We also recommend riders wear long pants to protect their legs and tall socks (over the ankle at least). Helmets are required at all times when mounted. If you or your child do not own one, don’t worry! We have helmets in all sizes for you to borrow.
