Furnace Brook Farm offers a lesson program for riders of all ages (3 years+) and experience levels. Whether you are new to horseback riding, an advanced rider with competitive experience - or somewhere in-between, you are welcome at FBF.
We focus our instruction on the principles of dressage with a strong emphasis on balance, strength, and development of the rider's seat.
All of our lessons are taught one-to-one for 30 minutes. FBF riders attend lessons weekly at a cost of $45 per session.
Our instructors emphasize safety and are licensed Massachusetts riding instructors with extensive training and experience as trainers and riders.
Students who reach a certain skill level may have the option to lease a horse at FBF. Once leasing, a student may opt to participate in horse shows both locally and regionally. FBF instructors, at an additional cost, will provide all direction and coaching for showing.
If a student decides to purchase their own horse, Erin Van Steenburgh will act as their agent in finding the perfect equine for their needs.
