What a great place for a young child to learn to ride and be around horses! I’m so excited for my daughter(s)!

Leasing


Have you ever wanted to own a horse but you were not sure if you or your child is ready?  We offer an inexpensive way to test it out.

Black Ridge Farm offers full and partial leases on a wide variety of horses. Leasing a horse allows riders to build a relationship with a single horse. Riders who lease have access to the same horse each week for lessons as well as for additional practice rides and showing.  The rides are scheduled so there is always supervision for those riders needing or wishing to have another person present while riding.  


Leasing is a great way to experience what it is like to own a horse without the full financial responsibility of doing so and it is a great stepping stone to horse ownership.


Partial leases start at only $100 a month. We also offer full and show leases. Contact BRF for more information!
