Lessons and Training
We provide lessons to all ages and skill levels.
Bright Farms has an unmatched horseback riding lesson program where you will learn how to ride with confidence. Our program is not just riding - your instructor will show you how to build a relationship with a horse and grow as an equestrian. Riding lessons focus on grooming, handling, saddling and all other aspects of proper equitation. Our lessons are for ages five and up, and skill levels from beginner through intermediate, and all the way to horse trials and rated shows.

All lessons require a 24-hour cancelation notice to avoid a lesson charge.
Lessons canceled due to weather need to be rescheduled immediately. We ride in the rain unless conditions are determined to be too dangerous by the barn.
Beginning riders will be required to take private lesson for the first eight lessons.
It is important that students have a comprehensive and well-rounded knowledge of horsemanship. Topics to be covered will include horse anatomy, parts of the tack, barn management and more. Students will occasionally be required to take ground lessons.
All riders lessoning with Head Trainer Kristen Goldin are required to provide their own horse.
All boarders are required to either lesson or have training rides twice a month
Bright Farms Show Team
Does your child love riding and wants to practically live, sleep, and breathe horses? Are you ready to be at the barn more to drop off/pick up your young rider, attend shows, learn the in and outs of horses, and be a fulltime show cheerleader?
There is a lot that goes into being a show team rider, not just from the child but from the parents as well. Listed below is detailed information about what it means to join the Bright Farms’ show team!
Costs of horse showing:
Schooling shows are a la carte, and average approximately $550 to $750 per show. This estimate includes a private lesson at the show grounds, coaching the day of the show, the registration fees, schooling fees, trailering costs, etc. This does not include show attire, food (although we typically will have some snacks/water for the kids), or overnight stays (if you choose to stay in a hotel versus driving back and forth, the hotel stay needs to be arranged by yourself).
