Lesson Preparation

Our Riding Program

Big Bay is a farm devoted to the exploration of the relationship between horse and rider. It is our goal to help you make that amazing and magical connection and let horses become a part of your life. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced riding lessons for children 6 years of age and older.

Our mission is not just geared towards riding. We seek to help people, young and young at heart, understand the amazing and emotional bond that can exist between a horse and rider.

Punctual arrivals are essential for obvious reasons. Scheduling the right horse for the right rider requires you to be there at the time reserved. Please respect the rights of the students who are waiting for their mounts to be groomed and cared for.

Lessons at Big Bay Farm

Never been on a horse? 

Are you now riding and want to improve your
balance, skills and confidence?

No experience is required to begin our safe riding program,
just a love of horses and a willingness to learn.
We teach from beginners to advanced
​level and children as young as 6 years old. There is no upper age limit for adults. Beginner level students are taught the basics of horse care, grooming and are introduced to the behavior of horses. We will ensure our students understand the general behavior of horses.

In addition to learning basic horsemanship and riding skills based on English riding principals, many of our riders choose to go on to our Show Rider program. Big Bay Farm participates in the local events so that our riders will have an opportunity to attend and gain valuable experience while competing. This is great opportunity to improve your skills and having fun achieving personal success throughout the show seasons.

​No matter what age or level you are at, we have a program that is right for you. Together we will identify your goals and together we will achieve them. Our specialty is to improve your knowledge and help you reach your personal goals.
