Finally Farm Paints is offering the opportunity for you to come and ride or groundwork your horse at our amazing facility! We have a 120 by 60 arena with nice, soft footing. There is plenty of room for trailer turnaround and parking, and ties in the arena to tie and tack up. Please sign paperwork before unloading your horse - if no one is here when you arrive, the packets of paperwork are in the file holder outside of the office door, along with a cashbox.
Cost is $5 per horse/rider pair. There is no time limit on your work. Open ride times are Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9AM to 8PM. Please contact us or take a look at our Facebook page or this website for any schedule changes or events that would preempt open ride times.
We also have a fun outdoor trail course, with tarps, poles, a flag, fluttering ribbons, and a bridge. This course is a great training opportunity to expose your horse to new challenges. The course is seasonal due to weather, and will be back up for use in the spring.
January 2020 Open Ride schedule: Normal Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday schedule, EXCEPT on January 18, when we are hosting a Clinic and will be closed to the public.
Clinics - Announcing
Our Winter Clinic Series!
We are excited to finalize our Winter clinic series Keep Riding This Winter! This is a 3 clinic series - you can come to one or sign up for all three! The instructor will be Angela Greenshields, CHA Certified Master Instructor. The clinics will be held in our indoor arena, and lunch will be provided. Each clinic is $125 or come to all three for the discounted rate of $335. Participation is limited to six, so there will be a lot of opportunity for personalized instruction. Auditors are welcome for $10 or $15 if you plan to stay for lunch. There is lots of parking and turnaround space.
Clinic 1 is Resolve to Ride! Scheduled for January 18, this clinic will focus on safely building confidence and communication skills with your horse so you can keep your New Year's Resolution to ride more. During lunch, here will be a guided discussion on overcoming obstacles to regular riding.
Winter Warmup is Clinic 2 on February 22. This clinic focuses on strategies and exercises to keep you and your horse tuned up during the long winter months. There will be training ideas presented that you can use in limited space and limited daylight hours.
Spring into Riding will be on March 21. This will help you and your horse prepare for riding season by focusing on communication, partnership and working through obstacles.
Our facility is the perfect place to hold clinics. In partnership with Angela Greenshields Horsemanship, we held a very successful clinic series during Summer 2019. Participants learned new skills to communicate with and build a partnership with their horses, and had a lot of fun. Clinics made use of the arena and outdoor trail course.
If you are a clinician, or are looking for a place to bring a clinician you know, contact us! If you are coming for a clinic, don't forget to check out Finally Farm Guesthouse as a comfortable, convenient and affordable overnight stay.
