Horse Riding And Horse Farms Near Woodbridge Virginia

Learn Riding On English Saddle 

Virginia is known as the capital of hunter/jumper horse riding schools and events on the east coast.  Our daughters rode ponies and horses in hunter competition, and in jumper competition.

I found out that ponies are not adolescent horses.  Ponies don't grow up to be horses.  Ponies are their own type of horse, and they have various breeds, just like horses.

Our daughters competed in hunter and jumper shows for ten years.  Our younger daughter is now a riding instructor at a farm in Alexandria Virginia.

You will find horse farms within 30 minutes drive where you and your children can learn to ride horses.

If Western riding is your preferred style, you can ride at Crisswood Farm, on the western end of Woodbridge.  Crisswood Farm also has a tack store where you can buy bridles, boots, jodpurs, and other accessories that go with riding.

Middleburg Virginia is about 50 minutes drive from Woodbridge.  Middleburg is the center of equestrian riding in northern Virginia.  Middleburg is surrounded by horse farms.  Some farms are lesson and show farms.  Other farms specialize in horse/pony breeding.

You can get gently used, broken-in tack at the Middleburg Tack Store, and the Tack Exchange.  You can find high quality used saddles, tall boots, paddock boots, bridles, bits, show jackets, and a huge variety of accessories in Middleburg.  Trust me, a broken-in saddle and boots are far more comfortable than new saddles and boots.

Children may learn to ride starting at four years of age.  We found that children of all ages can learn to ride on English saddle in hunter/jumper shows.  In fact, I learned to ride on an English saddle at age forty-five.  Oh my goodness was I sore after the first dozen lessons because one must use their lower legs to communicate with the horse.
