Famesgate's program is designed both to maintain seasoned show horses and cultivate the abilities of young horses, while strengthening the skills of beginner and accomplished riders alike. At Famesgate Stables, we train horses in a variety of disciplines including:
Horses are worked six days a week. Colts can be started under saddle and in harness.
One flat fee per month includes training, board, feed, water, and lessons. Additional costs include vet and farrier services, horse shows, and other related expenses.
Our lesson program includes expert teaching for beginners to advanced riders. We provide instruction in english riding on the flat, or saddle seat, as well as driving. We have a diverse group of lesson horses to accommodate all levels of riders.
We offer private and small group lessons, available Monday through Friday. Lesson length varies depending on the stamina of the rider, but lessons average about 30-45 minutes.
Ages 6 and up.
Please wear riding pants or jeans. No capris or shorts. Riding boots with a slight heel or hard-soled shoes are required. We have helmets available.
Lesson students can compete in horse shows using our lesson horses (please discuss with Katy Sterba).
