Lessons & Boarding

Lessons

The lesson program at Serendipity Farms is designed to help riders of all levels, from beginner to advanced, achieve their goals. Our focus is on correct instruction and training for both rider and horse. We offer private lessons as well as group lessons where riders are matched according to their ability. Lesson horses are available for clients who do not own their own horse.

Boarding

Serendipity Farms offers monthly stall boarding and training from $695/month.
Please see Oakhaven Farm for facility information.
