Equestrian Ridge Farm is a 200 acre horse farm located in scenic Vinton County in rural southeast Ohio.
We are a work in progress which began in October of 2000.
Our facilities include a 12 stall horse barn with heated tack room, 2 outdoor arenas ( 20 by 40 meter dressage arena and a 100 by 200 jumping/dressage arena.) and a 70 by 104 ft. indoor arena. There are a number of turnout paddocks and pastures. There are also wooded trails and meadows for riding all year round.
We offer riding lessons for beginners to intermediate riders in disciplines of Dressage, Cross Country Eventing, Single Driving, and Trail Riding. Our showing is dependent on the goals of students - Human or Equine. Our lesson and training program focuses on individualized attention to horse and rider, including development of a balanced seat.
Training programs are tailored to each horse using traditional, classical, and always humane principles. Striving always to encourage and build confidence and positive acceptance in the horse, whether in a young horse being worked with for the first time or in reschooling the older horse. Each horse is an individual and the care and training have to be tailored to it's unique personality in the most positive and understandable way.
We have usually between 15 to 25 horses here at any one time. Typically, trainees will number 4-5, full boarders are limited. We have several riding lesson horses and many students bring their horses for the day or weekend instruction. We raise sport horses and ponies with Andalusian bloodlines.
We offer custom horse back riding adventures for individuals, couples, and small groups. Our trail horses are all rehabilitated rescues, having recovered from abuse and neglect, but are now happy and healthy and love their jobs.
All rides are personalized with your goals and tastes in mind. See our trail riding page to set up your own personalized horse adventure. Boy & girl scout badges, plus custom day camps for families, too. (limited availability)
Camping, retreats, and custom horse adventures are available, all year round.
Overnight guests can stay in our bunkhouse cabin or camp in one of many primitive campsites.
Stabling for boarders, or for seasonal clinics, and instruction.
