Welcome to Raspberry Ridge Farms Riding Program.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO COVID-19 OUR LESSON PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2021. STAY SAFE.
2020 Season Dates
- May 1 to October 1
- Tuesday and Thursday evenings
- Saturday mornings
Under Debbie Richards, our lesson program offers beginner to advanced instruction in the Hunter and Dressage disciplines. The program is centered on having fun while building a correct, balanced position. Students will learn the ability to ride without getting in the horse’s way, and will find better balance with the horse both in and out of the tack.
Flat work will focus on steering and transitions while building confidence and strength. When the rider is ready, poles and jumping will be introduced.
Flat work will consist of riding various movements and exercises, and will also include practice dressage tests as skills increase.
Safety around the horses is our priority. Understanding the horse on the ground as well as from its back will set the rider up to succeed, feel safe and have fun. Helmets are provided. Riders will need to wear comfortable clothing, and must ride in a boot that has a half-inch heel. Gloves are also suggested.

Debbie will be happy to answer any questions and/or discuss a lesson time that might work for you. She would also love to organize a tour for you to see the farm and to meet our horses. We are already looking forward to spring and to seeing you at Raspberry Ridge Farms!
