Walnut Way Farm
Walnut Way Farm starts all of our riders out in Private "one-on-one" riding lessons. This gives our instructor time to get to know our rider's
skills and goals. Our Private lessons are thirty minutes. Our Instructor will develop your lesson plan depending on your experience. We love to
introduce new riders to the joy of the horse. We also offer Semi-private and group lessons as our riders progress.
We do require that all of our riders wear ASTM/SEI Certified protective headgear. We have a small supply of helmets that our new riders can
borrow for their first few lessons. As your rider continues lessons, we do ask that you purchase one for them that has been fitted correctly for
them. Your instructor can assist you in the direction of the local tack shops. We have an indoor facility so we ride year round. We have a
furnished, climate controlled lounge for your riding guests, parents and siblings during the riding lessons. The lounge is a great place for
siblings to stay during the riding lessons to help minimize distractions for your rider during the lesson time.
We would like to welcome you to Walnut Way!
Walnut Way Farm requires a completed Walnut Way Farm Liability Waiver Form on file for each rider. Please print and complete this form prior to
the first lesson. Thank you!
Lesson payments for riders are accepted in the form of cash or check
(payable to Walnut Way Farm). We do not have a credit/debit machine.
Girl Scouts Tours...
Bring your girl scout troop for a fun-filled and educational visit! There will be a barn
tour, mini-riding lesson, a question/answer session and time to take pictures of your
troop members on a horse or pony! This experience will be catered to qualifying for a
Horse Lover's Badge! Cost: $30.00/child. Minimum of 10 children-maximum of 15 per
troop. Only troop members will ride, no adult riding is included.
We will offer this tour on limited Fridays or Saturdays, for 1 1/2 hrs. You must book in
advance. All riders must have a parent signed release form (see below) to participate
in riding/grooming. Riders will all wear helmets (provided by WWF), and must wear
pants and shoes that have hard soles (no slip-ons/sandals)
