Our school horses are the foundation of our facility, and we take a great deal of pride in them.
Before beginning your search for the best possible instruction, it is both helpful and necessary to make a complete and honest assessment of your strengths, weaknesses, and goals as a rider. With which riding skills do you feel comfortable and competent, and in which skills do you feel yourself lacking? Identify those equestrian activities on which you would most like to concentrate your educational efforts. Do you aspire to ride capably at the annual trail ride? The local show circuit? Mid-level dressage competitions? Or just join the local 4H and Schooling shows?
The frequency and term of lessons varies tremendously from instructor to instructor. Beginning students, particularly if very young and/or having no access to a horse on which to practice between lessons tend to benefit more from multiple weekly lessons over an extended period of time. Riding properly requires both the learning of skills and the development of the physical strength necessary to perform these skills effectively. Progressive learning can take place only when students have lessons frequently enough so as not to forget that, which, they have already been taught. Students riding at a more advanced level, however, may need only occasional coaching with an instructor to keep their skills sharp.
We specialize in personalized riding instruction to meet individuals' requirements and goals. All levels are taught from beginner through advanced both in flat work & jumping. Dressage or just plain old trail riding
Most of our horses have competed. All are safe and have the ability to give the rider a good understanding of dressage and jumping. Emphasis is on creating a fun and harmonious relationship between horse and rider, no matter whether your goals are in the competitive field or in pleasure riding.
The program at WMF focuses on helping riders reach individual goals, no matter how big or small.
In addition to lessons, students are encouraged to attend clinics, horse shows and lectures to help increase their knowledge .
