Chagrin Valley Farms offers horse boarding and there is particular value for those who plan to participate in horse shows. Boarding at the area’s leading show facility reduces horse show expenses incurred from transportation and stabling when you already call Chagrin Valley Farms home.
Horse boarding amenities include spacious 10’ x 14’ stalls with Dutch doors and 7-day per week stall cleaning/bedding, multiple grain options and good quality hay fed several times a day. Each stall comes with its own built-in 3’ x 7’ locker located near the stall with additional space for trunks. The barn has indoor wash racks with hot water, laundry facilities on-site and grass pastures and all-weather turnout areas.
Chagrin Valley Farms’ riding areas are the same used during horse shows including two indoor arenas (80’ x 250’ and 100’ x 210) with new footing, an enclosed outdoor riding area (175’ x 300’) and an open outdoor ring (325’ x 400’). Spectators can enjoy the 4,000 square foot heated club room observation area with restrooms and free Wi-Fi.
Chagrin Valley Farms offers English hunt seat lessons to students of all ages and levels of ability with their own horse, or one of the Farm’s lesson (school) horses. Riding lessons can be purchased individually or in a discounted package of 10 lessons.
A special Starter Package makes lessons an affordable option for those just getting involved in riding. A discount of $50 is given on the first Starter Package of 10 one-hour group riding lessons, regularly priced at $300.
Private lessons in half-hour sessions are available for $38 for a single lesson, or a package of 10 half-hour private lessons is $350.
Horses for lease
For riders who are ready for more than weekly riding lessons, and a taste of having their own horse without the commitment, Chagrin Valley Farms has a limited number of horses available for half leasing. In exchange for paying a portion of the monthly board, you have a horse to ride and care for several days a week.
Chagrin Valley Farms’ fun, safe and affordable summer riding camps offer participants of all levels one or more camp weeks of horsemanship. A multitude of weeklong options are popular and sell-out early so parents are encouraged to register early. Children, ages 4 to 16, are invited to experience the responsibility that horse “ownership” entails. Care, feeding, tacking and grooming complement the daily riding lessons designed to start and expand your child’s riding skills. Younger children ages 4 to 6, or children without experience, are encouraged to participate in our half-day camp. Sessions provide riders with the attention and focus on safety that every parent would expect from a top riding academy. The full-day program of weekly sessions culminates with a summer riding camp horse show where the students demonstrate riding skills and take home ribbons.
