Inclement Weather - Lessons are rarely canceled.  If the weather conditions prevent riding altogether or the weather becomes bad once you are here; a ground lesson will be conducted under shelter for the whole lesson or time remaining.  There is so much to learn besides just riding that the time will be well used.  The fee for inclement weather is the same as if you rode.

Riding lessons are taught during the school year to youth and year-round to adults. 

All of our horses and ponies are extremely well cared for, not overworked and are NEVER rented to the general public and therefore maintain their high degree of training. 


Riding lessons are conducted predominantly on weekday afternoons during the school months and Vaulting practices are conducted on Monday afternoons.

Classes and Schedule

SHEA-ROSE FARM, INC. offers you and your family quality instruction at all levels of riding.  We cater to both the young rider [starting at age seven (7) for riding instruction and age six (6) for vaulting instruction] and the adult rider from beginner to advanced.  We offer special attention to those who are afraid of getting on a horse for first time or to those who, unfortunately, had bad experiences with horses in the past.

Riding lessons are taugh during the school year to youth and year round to adults. The schedule below will be in effect until June10th, 2016 and will resume on August 22,2016. During the summer months, camps will be in session. See Shea Rose Farm News for more information about our summer programs. 

Our riders learn in one (1) hour group lessons or in one (1) hour private lessons (the lessons usually last approximately 1½ hours due to ground work requirements).  We teach and expose our students to all phases of caring for the horse and its equipment and stable care as well as instruction of hunt seat equitation, jumping, trail riding, training principles, games, drill team, and vaulting.
