This one of the cleanest most organized barns I have ever been to. The trainers and all staff are incredible and amazing with all of the riders with zero experience to great experience. I’m incredibly grateful we found them and would highly recommend them to anyone

I highly Recommend this farm! My 5 year oldhas learned so much and she has never been around horses ever she gets so excited when she gets to have her riding lesson day and just as excited for her horsemanship lesson. and when she does ride she hops on the pony's as if she has been doing this for years.The trainers are absolutely informative,Patient and kind they are wonderful in teaching my 5 year old who's attention can get distracted easy to re direct her. The fact that my daughter is excited to help clean up and get things together has made my heart so happy! She has such a passion now that it makes me so happy to see! I can't rave enough about this farm! Seriously if you are looking for a place that is great with children and learning this! This is the place. I can't wait for my daughter to spend years here.

This is a horse and rider dream barn. So special, great riders, fantastic trainers. Kind, knowledgeable, and like a family, everyone here is SUPER nice. Don't go anywhere else. Everyone there works as a team and they have all helped my horse become athletically stronger and mentally calm. they have equipped my horse to be the BEST he has ever been. Likewise they have helped me to become a more confident and safe rider; willing to try to work harder and become a more balanced rider for my horse. They will help make a partnership of you and your horse and move you through getting there gradually.

My daughters did the HomeSchool lessons and had an amazing experience! They learned a ton of information about horses and riding and had fun at the same time! My daughters had no prior horse riding experience and I felt completely comfortable and confident with the staff and facility! The horse (cloud) they interacted with was the perfect horse for young children! We highly recommend and look forward to future riding experience with Opportunity Farm!

Both my daughters, 7 and 2 absolutely love riding and learning here! They would rather stay with the horses, Erin, and Ali then go home! It's a family atmosphere, everyone helping everyone! Love it!

Parent and Student

When we were looking for a barn for my 8 year old, I was looking for a barn where horsemanship, the knowledge and care of the horse, was emphasized as much as the riding instruction. The combination is what develops the best riders and horse people. Erin and her team do a wonderful job of teaching and encouraging the work ethic that is also necessary for success with and enjoyment of horses. They also do an excellent job of cultivating a friendly and welcoming barn community so the children and their families create real connection to the each other and the horses. A wonderful place to learn to ride
