Riding Lessons

Tired of having lessons in overcrowded rings with dozens of instructors who pay little attention to detail and your child's riding ability? We specialize in teaching students of all ages (including adults) in a fun and friendly manner that reduces stress and helps them learn quickly. At Sunset Valley Farm, we guarantee that during our private lesson services, there will never be more than three instructors in the ring and no more than four students during a lesson.

Our equestrian instructors want each student to have the attention he or she needs to develop riding skills at their own pace. Our lessons are unique because balance exercises are paramount, and the student learns how to ride with his/her legs and body with little or no reliance on the hands/reins. The basics of balanced riding are taught, and once those skills are mastered, the student can learn other disciplines such as equitation, hunt seat and jumping.  Horse show participation is encouraged, but not required.

Children 5+ are welcome to start the riding program! We have mini lessons for the tiniest riders. This is a 15-minute private riding lesson on a mini pony. The child learns about safety, grooming and tacking up. 

Please call or email for individual lessons or discount packages. 

During the summer, lessons switch to riding camp. This is a big favorite, so sign up early!

Horse Boarding
Our philosophy of boarding includes:

  • Customized Care: Each horse is cared for according to your preferences and horse's needs. We provide various types of feed to so that each horse/pony is properly fed according to breed and amount/type of work it does. With three options of boarding: Full, Partial Full and Full Care Field board, one is sure to meet your spefications.
  • Consistency: Horses are most happy when they are given a consistent routine. They are fed and turned out within the same time frame every day by Maria or 2 other staff members. The grain never changes unless specified by the owner, and the hay comes from one hay farmer.
  • Communication: We want to make sure your horse is cared for according to your preferences. If something is not right, or you want something special done for your horse, just ask! We welcome open communication to avoid mistakes and misunderstandings with our equine care services. You have a voice when it comes to your horse!

With 48 acres of open pasture and superior care, your horse will feel part of the Sunset Valley family.Please schedule an appointment to visit our equine stables and see if our services meet your specific needs. Please text (best method) Maria at  484-798- 8365; email:
