Riding Lessons & Boarding

Undermountain Farm specializes in beginners of any age but we can accommodate riders of all levels. We make a special effort to have friendly, reliable, and versatile school horses.

We welcome visitors, but please do not feed or touch the horses or enter their stalls or pastures without a supervising staff member! Please keep your dog in your car or on a short leash. Dogs are not permitted to run loose on the farm.


Lessons & Riding

Undermountain Farm is proud to have several skilled licensed instructors. Please call 413-637-3365 at least 5 days in advance to schedule your lesson. The calendar can be quite full at times.

Our instructors start new riders with a 1/2 hour private lesson (cost $45) which enables them to evaluate their needs and skill. Riders may continue with private lessons or can join group lessons with riders of a similar level. All prices are for both group and private lessons.

  • ½ hour lesson $45/rider
  • 1-hour lesson $90/rider
  • Lesson Cards $450 (Buy 10 lessons and get 1 free) Expires in 1 year.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Any lesson canceled day-of WILL be charged for a full lesson. Due to a tight lesson schedule, any lesson that is delayed due to tardiness will have to shorten in order to not delay further lessons and will remain the same price.
