Lesson Program - The Fall Schedule is full. Please contact us in the winter if you are interested in lessons.
Lessons are offered for basic english and western riding, jumping, and dressage. We also offer programs to increase confidence with horses in general. All of our programs are designed to suit the needs of each individual rider. A lesson plan is designed to suit each rider's goals and these goals can be met in private or group lessons. Safety is our key concern, so of course helmets and proper riding attire are required. Contact us through the contact page of our website for the quickest response. We are currently completely full and need to focus on our existing full roster of students. River Ranch has had a tremendous lesson program for over a decade, and although we are very proud of this, it makes it very difficult to add new students to our already full roster. We apologize for already being full for fall lessons!
River Ranch Farm owns very safe horses that are currently available to lease. Leases are a great opportunity to spend more time with a horse, get more time in the saddle, and to practice toward your riding and lesson goals. Leases of RRF owned horses are available for a 6 month minimum commitment during off show season. You can also use our tack and equipment while leasing a River Ranch horse. We also frequently have client owned horses available for full or partial leases.
River Ranch often hosts clinics, so keep an eye on our events page to see who is visiting. Meridith Babnick also travels off the farm to teach dressage clinics. To discuss clinic information, call 218-576-4336.
Our regrets, but our in order to offer the very best care for your horse, we cap the number of horses that we can house at River Ranch and we are currently HAVE ONE STALL AVAILABLE. We do have a waiting list if you would like to be placed on it. River Ranch offers full board only, which includes a stall, group turn out, hay and high quality grain. We feed any supplements you horse requires and can blanket/sheet as needed. Boarders enjoy use of all our facilities of course as well. Our fields have safe new fencing, and all stalls have two piece rubber mats. Our indoor and outdoor arenas and frequent "field ride times" allow for space to ride. We have someone living on the property and our barn manager oversees daily activities and events at the barn.
