Lesson Programs and Rates  

Amber Hill Farm offers individualized instruction in Hunt Seat, Equitation and Combined Training for the first time recreational rider all the way to the serious, committed show rider.

Our goal is to always teach an in-depth understanding of the horse along with rider skills, thus students learn "whole Horsemanship". We are able to work with the horse as easily as the rider, in a relaxed, positive atmosphere.

Our lesson programs are designed to fit each rider’s level, needs, ability and personal goals.
