Linden Riding Academy - Lesson Information
At Linden Farm, the riding program is intended to introduce young people and adults to the wonderful world of horsemanship. It is our hope that the program will enable those who might not otherwise ever have the opportunity to ride or to work with horses to develop an interest in and knowledge of these beautiful and benign creatures.
Classes are taught year round and consist of riding instruction, lecture, and hands-on work. Classes are offered throughout the week including many adults-only classes. Whether you prefer to ride in the morning or evening, our schedule of classes is designed to accomodate your busy schedule. All classes are semi-private with no more than four students per instructor per class.
All students are asked to wear:
Leather-soled shoes or boots with a heel
Note: Tennis or running shoes are not appropriate around horses. If shoes other than riding boots are worn, they should lace-up, not slip-on.
All students (parents in the case of a minor) will be asked to sign a liability waiver.
When students (and their parents) develop confidence and an interest in competition, we offer the opportunity to participate in small local shows. Students pay for their individual entry fees and food. There is a small trailer fee for transportation to and from the show, as well as a small coaching fee.
Other Optional Activities
As students develop their skills and confidence, we offer trail rides and the opportunity to attend special events such as local foxhunts, shows, competitive endurance rides, and demonstrations. Some of these events will be free, for some a ticket or entry fee will be required. These are optional activities and participation is not required.
