Policy & Forms
Ashford Farm offers lessons by appointment year-round for children (ages 7+) and adults at every level of ability.
Beginners and riders new to Ashford are required to start with a private lesson or a few before riding with a group. Our beginner groups consist of 3-4 riders, allowing students to visually progress faster and learn to control their horses.
For our more advanced riders, group lessons consist of only 5-6 riders. This ensures that each rider gets the focus that they need from our qualified instructors. Private lessons are offered on an as needed basis.
Group lessons packages are sold as a package that is good for one year, and is non-refundable. Lesson credits are deducted as lessons are taken. Students who cancel or fail to attend three consecutive lessons risk losing their spot in their scheduled lesson. Group lessons can also be paid for on a lesson by lesson basis.
What to wear
For riders new to Ashford, we have riding helmets that may be borrowed for the first few lessons. However, we require that a rider purchase their own helmet and riding boots by the time they enter into group lessons.
Where to buy equipment:
For all of your riding equipment needs, we highly recommend Bucks County Saddlery. We have been loyal customers of this family run business for many years. They have a knowledgeable staff who are involved in all aspects of the equine industry. Please take your business to them first!
