Riding Instruction

“A Dream to Ride Can Come True”

Olivia Farmer knew early on that “horses” would be her career. The desire to share her passion with others is what led her to seek the proper education to teach. In 2009 Olivia graduated with honors from Meredith Manor International Equestrian College in Waverly, West Virginia. At Meredith Manor she received the title of Riding Master III, and was certified as a Riding Instructor. In 2011 Olivia received an Associates Degree in Equine Science from West Virginia University.

Olivia’s goal is to teach proper riding techniques and skills in the student’s choice of either English or Western Disciplines. In addition to riding, she also wants students to learn proper horse care, grooming, tacking skills, horse anatomy, safety, and most of all a unique confidence found only in the presence of a horse

Private and Semi Private Lessons are available for Children and Adults. Lessons are held at our 60 X 100 indoor arena, 66x195 outdoor arena or trail riding lessons in DuPont state forest. First time students should wear a comfortable but fitted shirts, long pants, and smooth sole boots/shoes with a heel.

Private Lesson: $45 per hour
Semi-Private Lesson $35 (2 to 4 students)
