We are here to help you succeed in your riding goals!

PRF is a fun, active barn with lots of learning opportunities both in the saddle and on the ground.

We have a fun, diverse range of students of all levels and ages. From the youngest of beginners just being introduced to the magic of horses, to experienced riders looking to show competitively, to adult riders wanting to continue their love of horses and be a part of the barn community.

Learning about horse care and management is an essential part of our program.
We believe that in order to create great riders, we must create great horsemen, and our unmounted lessons, involvement with the United States Pony Club, day to day instruction, clinics, and camps reflect that goal.

PRF is committed to helping all of its students become well rounded equestrians and successful riders.
