Our goal at Castle French Farm is to introduce people to horses. In educating you about these amazing animals, we hope to inspire respect, admiration and passion for the sport and recreation of horseback riding. While taking lessons at Castle French Farm, you will receive outstanding goal oriented instruction and personal attention in your quest to learn about horses. We teach the American system of forward riding and encourage students from all levels ages 7 and up to learn and develop their own personal horsemanship skills. If you or your child has never touched a horse, but is horse crazy, we can help you/them gain the confidence and skill-set required to safely handle them. If you or your child is experienced, we have well-schooled horses and to meet the challenge of your/their continued riding and horsemanship growth. An Evaluation Lesson is required for each new student. The evaluation lesson serves as an introduction to our riding program. In this lesson, an instructor can assess the student's riding abilities, allowing the rider to be placed in an appropriate skill level. Following the evaluation, the instructor will discuss the student's abilities, needs, and goals, and establish a personalized riding program. Riding Lessons is like a curriculum it doesnt just meet once a week. It is a progression of developing physical, mental and emotional skills in a unique activity that involves understanding and management of a 1000+ pound animal.
