Sharing Horses at VHF

Boarders, lessees, owners can arrange privately or with our management to have their horse or pony ridden family or friends. VHF encourages occasional but supervised use of horses and ponies by 'non- owner', 'VHF alumni' or friends, for lessons, fun, experience and education, or to assist in exercising the animal. VHF sincerely appreciates and encourages the occasional use of boarder's horses for teaching purposes with all students.

Minors under the age of 16 and beginner level riders must ride under the supervision of a member of Farm teaching staff at all times for reasons of safety.

Charges for the use of 'non-owner' riders should be arranged on an individual basis and can mature into Part or Full Lease arrangements if the owner is interested in such.

Visitors/Ship-Ins

Family members, friends and visitors of clients are welcome to ride or bring their horses to Venturing Hills Farm at anytime. Arrangements should be made in advance and must be approved by the management. Riders must sign a waiver prior to a lesson, ride, or using the cross country course or the facility. For reasons of safety all inexperienced riding guests, including all children under the age of 16, must be supervised by an instructor/coach for their first ride at the farm.

  • Visitor/Facility Fee - $25 general facilities, $50 cross country courses
