Riding/Lessons/Boarding

Undermountain Farm specializes in adult and young beginners. We make a special effort to have friendly and reliable school horses.

Pony rides are available for young children. They are a wonderful introduction to the equine world for little future riders. We welcome visitors, but please do not feed or touch the horses or enter their stalls or pastures at any time! Please keep you dog in your car or on a short leash. Dogs are not permitted to run loose on the farm.
