Lesson Program - The Summer Schedule is full. Please contact us in the fall 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. We are therefore not adding any students to our summer schedule.
River Ranch Farm owns very safe horses that are often 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. You can also use our tack and equipment while leasing a River Ranch horse.
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.
River Ranch has a few stalls available for new boarders. Our board rate is $400 per month, 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.
