IMPORTANT NOTICE: Our traditional riding lesson program has filled up for this season. Please check back and if space should open up it will be announced here. Thank you for your interest!
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 or in small groups for 45 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.
