Instead of being stuck inside at home or in daycare after school, spend your time here at the farm through our leasing and/or lesson program. This allows children to get outside and be away from TV and video games! The fresh air and animals are a great getaway from the stresses of school.
We offer group and private lessons 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday. Adults and homeschoolers of all levels are taught weekday mornings and Saturdays. Students are grouped by ability after an initial evaluation lesson. Our riders who wish to attend horse shows have the opportunity to ride in both small, local shows or at the regional or national level.
The most common misconception is that you have to spend a lot of money and show. However, there is something for everyone. Some riders ride once a week but are still competent to ride on vacation or at a friend's hunting camp.
Facilities include large grass pastures and a 12-stall full service barn; several large outdoor arenas and an area for students to practice jumping as well as a large air conditioned and heated common room with a bathroom and shower and a full service kitchen.
Celebrate your child's birthday at Silver Lining Farm!
Up to 15 children are included in the price of the party package*. During the party, the children are able to ride for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Usually, there is one horse to every 2-3 children. Each child has an intermediate rider from the farm assisting while they ride. This makes it an orientation lesson and not a pony ride. The kids have more fun walking and trotting with more knowledge of horseback riding.
After riding, the children take a tour of the beautiful property singing and learning about horse breeds and colors. We end the party by feeding the horses carrots and apples in the barn.
Parents say it is the easiest and the best party that they have ever had!
*Each additional child is $10 extra.
