 Horseback Riding Lessons Near Me 
Spring 2017 Season
is about to begin!

We are again offering private, and possibly semi-private,
horsemanship classes, during the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2017.

We're offer the same pricing for Spring 2017 as we have since 2014: 

One private lesson:  $30

Package of 4 private lessons: $100 ($25 each)

Semi-private lessons may be available, at the package price, please ask, if interested.

Lessons last approximately 50 minutes,
 and usually include hippology, preparing the horse to ride, and putting it away.
(But it's no secret that we often let the student stay much longer if they can!)

We accept cash or checks.

Please email here if you are interested.  Thanks!
(Email links have been fixed!  If you could not
get through a while ago, please try again!)

"Blue Rock Horse Park" is just what we call our horse hobby:
we board our two horses, ride, teach, train, and "just hang out",
in the NW Cincinnati suburb of White Oak West.


You may click any of the links
<=== at left, at any time.
Just "take any saddle from the rack".
They turn into "Cowboy saddles" if you hover your cursor over them.

We board our (two, currently) horses on a very gracious family's farm land where Galbraith Rd. dead-ends onto Blue Rock Road, and have the use of about 15 acres of fields and trails, 3 stalls, a few acres of pasture, and our 45' round pen.  Our home is just two miles away.  We're the only ones boarding there, happily.

The horses are kept very "naturally"; the stalls open into the pasture, and are left open for them to go in and out as they please, most days.

Sorry, we cannot accept volunteers at this time due to our insurance company.  However, email us if you really want to work at the barn;
if we get very many people wanting to volunteer,
we may change insurance companies in the future!

Please have a look around our web site,
meet our horses and us, and marvel with us
at what God has provided right in the heart of the
northwestern Cincinnati suburb of White Oak West.

At this location, we offer:

  •  trail riding lessons

    -- and more, all of which falls under the heading of "hippology"!

We have never offered trail rides.  We only have two horses right now, and are not insured for that, or parties, etc.  Just lessons.

* Our "SUPER-natural" Hippology is based on many years of equestrian
AND Bible study, learning and experience.

We consider every good thing in our lives to be a gift from God*,
and we thank Him daily for the privilege of being able to enjoy them all: our very lives, our health, our church, our horses, our family and friends, and the barn and land where we board and enjoy our horses. 
And you are invited to enjoy all of them with us!

We'd now like to share our fondest equine memory with you:

In Loving Memory
Amir Halam, 1980-2011

  This kind, patient, and dignified Arabian gelding is Amir Halam.

He was our main riding and lesson horse for many years. He's shown here freshly bathed (still wet!), with 3 of that year's 8 horsemanship students getting ready for the annual Harvest Home Fair Horse Show.

We're not officially connected with the Fair, but we usually attend,
and we and our students sometimes show there.

*  "Every good thing, and every perfect gift, is from above, and comes down
from the Father of lights"  ---  James, chapter1, verses 16 & 17

The stable is on Blue Rock Road, which is named after Blue Rock Creek.
It and the Taylor Creek tributary that flows through the land at the barn are
replete with slate and shale, which is more or less ... "Blue"!
