Our comprehensive lesson program at Summer Hill Farm is designed to meet the individual needs of each rider, whether you are riding for pleasure or to compete at the highest level. We offer private lessons. Private lessons are a 1/2 hour. Our lesson program includes the use of our tack and well-trained, quality lesson horses if you do not own a horse. Each rider is matched with an SHF Lesson Horse appropriate for his or her riding ability. Riding boots with heels and an approved riding helmet are required. Before the new student orientation and introductory lesson, all new students must have the SHF Liability Release and Media Release forms on file. Please see the FAQ's tab on our website for our policies & procedures checklist.
