The Riding School at

Brandywine Farms


All beginners and students under evaluation/tranferring from other programs are required to start in private lessons. Private lessons are 30 mins with one-on-one instruction and are $60 per lesson.

Monthly packages for one, two, and three lessons a week are available.


Once riders have graduated from private lessons and are self sufficient with tacking and grooming they are able to move into group lessons of which we have multiple levels. Group lessons consist of 2 to 6 riders, students ride for one hour and the lesson cost remains $60. 

Recreational lessons

Recreational lessons are designed as a "one time" lesson for groups of 3 to 5 and require no experience. Rides are one hour and in this time we will teach basic horsemanship principles, tacking and untacking, and basics of riding while maintaining a walk. Recreational rides are subject to availability and are $80 per person for the hour. A 50% deposit is required to hold any appointment outside of the regular lesson program.

Please note all services are scheduled by appointment only,

we cannot accommodate walk in/same day requests.

We are closed on Sundays.

We accept payments in the form of cash/check or Venmo to @BWF-Ariel for any service.

A 50% deposit is required to hold any pony or trail ride times.
