At Kneipp Farm, you can expect a true partnership between horse and rider. We understand that each rider’s definition of success is different, so we work with individuals to create a program that works best to meet those goals. For a full list of our services and related fees, please click here.
Lessons are available for riders all abilities, ages 4 and up. If you do not have your own mount, a quality lesson horse or pony suitable to your needs will be made available for your convenience. We offer the following lesson options:
- New Client Starter Package: $210
All new riders to Kneipp Farm can expect training that builds on the knowledge that you bring to the ring! The starter package offers a discount on the first four four (4) one-hour lessons. Learn more and sign up here.
- Private Lessons: $55-70: Kneipp Farm offers hourly private instruction according to riding ability. You can expect a custom program designed to build upon your strengths and improve areas of opportunity.
- Semi-Private Lessons: $40-55: Semi-private lessons consist of 2-4 riders. Riders will be matched with an appropriate group of similar ability.
Kneipp Farm offers a training program to maximize a positive relationship between horse, rider, and instructor. Whether your equine partner comes alone to Kneipp Farm for a complete training program or your partner on site needs an hour session with Maria, we are here to help your horse or pony reach its fullest potential.
Kneipp Farm offers the foundational knowledge and confidence to help you reach your horse show goals. Each month, we participate in various USEF rated National ‘AA’ and ‘A’ equestrian shows each year. We also attend a handful of local shows each year. Full coaching and training is offered at all shows, emphasizing on safety, professionalism, sportsmanship and of course, FUN!

Summer Horseback Riding Camp
Each summer, Kneipp Farm offers a horse and pony camp to young equine enthusiasts who want to further refine their riding skills.
Eligibility: Campers should be in an active lesson program (either with Kneipp Farm or elsewhere) and be able to canter and jump cross-rails (x-rails). Campers are welcome to bring their own horse or pony so they can build their skills together. Negative Coggins is required, and equine transportation can be arranged if needed.
In addition to a focused riding lesson each day, they will also learn how to best prepare for a horse show, horse clipping, basic vet care and farm safety.
Riders will also be allowed time for water fun to cool off!
Cost: $400 per rider
Occasionally, Kneipp Farm will bring in outside professionals to provide instruction on-site. These two-day long events are a great opportunity to learn from other experienced trainers. Haul-ins are welcome! Negative Coggins is required.
Kneipp Farm is happy to coordinate hands-on learning experiences and field trips with school groups, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts troupes.
