Whether you are new to riding, looking to improve your skills, or returning after time off, Chagrin Valley Farms lesson program has options for all levels and ages of riders. Our experienced instructors teach you on the ground and in the saddle.

For placement purposes, riders with some experience but who are new to the lesson program will take a one-time introductory ride. This allows for your instructor to get to know your level of riding and for you to get a feel for our programs.


Group lessons

Group lessons are scheduled by riding level and include 3 to 6 people in the ring. Beginner classes are offered to students with enough experience to control their horse in a group setting.

Private and semi-private lessons

Private lessons with our instructors are scheduled on an individual basis between the student and instructor. Semi-private options are also available for two people in a shared session.
