Exceptional Rider and Exceptional Program
Blaire is a young lady that has autism. This young lady is training to compete in the UPHA Exceptional Challenge Cup Finals in Kansas City, MO.
Riders are either physically or mentally disabled (or both). There are divisions for riders to compete independently or with assistance.
Blaire began her riding lessons over a year ago and she has excelled so much that she rides and shows without assistance.
Blaire has learned to trot and post; rides regularly in a group; shows in unfamiliar arenas with a large number of competitors; furthermore, she learned to canter the entire arena without stopping!
Stay tuned to Blaire’s special journey to Kansas City!
Horsefriends Benefit Show
We are excited to attend the Horsefriends Benefit Open Show at Flintrock Farm on June 15. Horsefriends is a therapeutic riding facility that is a 501C3.
There are classes for all ages and ability levels and this show is minutes away from the farm. Sign up today!!!!!!
It is very hot and riding is physically strenuous. You MUST bring a water bottle or Gatorade. Please label your water with your name.
If you forget your water and need to take one from the little house (which is the STAFF water), we will expect you to donate a case of water in the very near future.
The staff is often in this weather 5-12 hours a day. We provide water for the staff but need to clientele to bring their own.
Thanks for your understanding!
Trash at the barn
Clean up your empty water and Gatorade bottles. Do not leave open food containers in the barn or little house. Please help us keep our barn and farm beautiful! Kathryn is your horse trainer and NOT your maid!
Summer Barn Opportunities
Summer is the best time for your rider to learn new things at the barn and be mentored by our terrific staff and advanced riders.
Riders must commit to a regular weekly time that Kathryn assigns to them. This commitment is very important to their growth as a person and equestrian.
This is NOT a babysitting service. Riders cannot be randomly dropped off. In addition, all riders will have to work. We do not sit, nor play on phones or other electronic devices. In order to be a barn helper, the rider must have a scheduled time.
If you are interested in further information, please contact Kathryn at
