Training & Lessons

Happenstance Farms is dedicated to providing the highest quality and safest riding instruction possible. Confidence, respect, and responsibility are all integral parts of the instructional program. We emphasize a strong foundation for jumping, focusing on position, correct equitation, and horsemanship.

At Happenstance Farms we have a balance of both children & adult students, from experienced to beginners. Our instructors are wonderful at teaching all ages, as are our lesson horses & ponies.  We offer lesson horses from beginner to advanced, from small pony to full size horses. For all of our lesson programs, we provide all the tack (including saddles) and grooming supplies. Riders are required to have their own riding attire.  Our quality lesson program is designed for horse lovers of all ages (lessons for both adults and children), and experience levels who desire to learn or improve their skills in riding the disciplines of Hunters, Jumpers, and Equitation.  With experienced instructors and horses you can look forward to each lesson being fun, safe, and educational.
