If you're not quite ready to make the decision to purchase, but you are looking for more time in the saddle, this program is for you! Our lease program allows you exclusive access to the horse of your choice for lessons, trail rides and more!

What services are included with the lease?
For $275/month you will receive access to our large, lighted ring and network of trails. This is an "on farm" lease and the horses may not leave the premises without express written permission.
Riding lessons and foals carried by the leased horse are not included in the lease. We also barter for goods and services.

Can I take lessons with my leased horse?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage riders new to our farm to participate in lessons with your horse to help strengthen your partnership and improve your confidence. Lessons are given by Jarred Langston for $50/session. To schedule a lesson, please contact our instructor, Jarred Langston, at 229-977-4939 (or 540-825-1300 for Stephanie if you don't have long distance.)

What equipment do I need?
Helmet: All riders must wear an ASTM approved riding helmet. Helmets are available for purchase at the Culpeper Tractor Supply, Culpeper Co-op, MAD tack or Saddlery Liquidators in Madison.
Pants: All riders must wear long pants.
Shoes: Riders must wear shoes with a slight heel. Paddock boots, riding boots, cowboy boots, and other similar shoes are fine.
Waivers: All riders and visitors must sign our liability waiver. NO EXCEPTIONS.

How do I get started?
The first step is a visit to the farm. There, you can see our facility, meet us, and view the horses. If you like what you see, the next step is a lesson so we can evaluate your riding ability and chemistry with the horse. We can accomplish this all in the same visit if you like. We reserve the right to deny leases at our discretion. We will try our best to match you with a horse whose personality, gait and riding level required will suit you and make your riding experience fun and safe.

Who do I contact for more information?
For more information e-mail Stephanie or call 540-825-1300
*Visits by appointment only.
