Bravado Farms is a full-service hunter/jumper show barn catering to junior and amateur riders who wish to compete at the county circuit or "A" rated shows or simply just ride for pleasure. Our training programs are custom tailored to help each horse and rider to meet their full potential and achieve their goals.
Bravado Farms offers Full Training and Care packages.
We believe that flatwork is an important foundation to our training program. We strive to teach our riders proper fundamentals and position so they can have the necessary tools to succeed. Lesson groups are always kept to 3 or less riders of the same level to allow each rider get the most out of their time in the saddle A Comtek speaker system is used so riders are able to easily hear what is being taught during the lessons.
Full Training: $600
This package includes a combination of 5 services per week – lessons and professional rides. Lessons will be available 3 days a week. Schooling rides will be provided the other 2 days. If you cannot make it to your lesson your horse will be ridden for you. Vet and shoeing appointments and all show arrangements will be made for horses in full training.
Lesson Program: Bravado Farms offers a lesson program for beginner and intermediate riders that do not yet own their own horses. Our lessons teach riders how to become knowledgeable horsemen from the ground up. Riders will learn how to care for their horses, groom, tack up and ride. Private lessons are 45-60 mins and available for both beginner and intermediate riders. Group Lessons are 60 mins and are available for riders that can walk/trot/canter on their own. We have experienced, safe horses and ponies available for lessons.
Lessons are available for riders once a week. Riders wishing to lesson more than once a week or show, can have the opportunity to half-lease one of our great lesson horses. Half-leases include 3 lessons per week and the use of the horse for shows.
