Horse Riding Lessons in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Sunset Valley Farm in West Chester, Pennsylvania, offers horse riding lessons in English (equitation, hunter/jumper) Claudia Langmaid has 30+ years experience in riding and possesses excellent knowledge and skill to provide lessons to equestrian students. Anna Bourreza has 20+ years experience riding, training and owning her own horses. Both instructors enjoy teaching children of all abilities and use a lot of care and patience with students. Our goal is for all students to have an enjoyable, comfortable and safe experience during the lesson  Both instructors teach private lessons, work the birthday parties and summer camp. We have ponies and horses of varying sizes to accomodate each child's age, height and/or riding ability. Our equine friends are safe, calm, well trained and comfortable with children, teens and adults. We have helmets and boots to borrow as a courtesy to our students.

Individual Lessons
Lessons include proper grooming and tacking up the horse before and after the ride. Students are encouraged to tack up their own horse (age appropriate) and to properly clean and put the tack away. Saddle checks are done by the instructor. One time lessons (no package) 1/2-Hour Private: $50 1-Hour Private: $100

We own most of our ponies and horses so they are trained and handled by SVF staff. Our equine friends are used for lessons, camp and birthday parties. They are well trained and safe for beginners through advanced riders.
