Ready to Ride?

Horseback riding brings so many benefits and so much joy! Getting outside and staying active is especially important these days. In addition to the myriad health benefits such as balance, strength and agility, horseback riding also has an impact on mental health and wellness.  

The best way to see what we’re all about is to come visit us. We have several Farm Fun Open House events scheduled. We’ll meet all our animals, tour our facility, conduct a riding demonstration and speak with our riding instructors.  Bring the whole family out, it’s tons of fun and won’t cost you a dime. 



For Kids

Though we have added many programs and activities here at Autumn’s Gate, we are among the few farms to have a dedicated Horseback Riding Program for children. We start our riders at just 4 years old, and the program adapts as their skills develop.

We’ve also launched our Toddler & Me Horseback Riding Program, which starts kids as young as two! 

Our standard horseback riding program is conducted weekly for most riders looking to improve their riding skills, though we have options for super-ambitious folks who want to ride more. Each session runs for about an hour. Though we always try to ride outside in the outdoor riding arena, if the weather doesn’t permit, we’ll ride in our 7,200-square-foot indoor riding arena.

Though every lesson is different, typically, we follow a similar routine with a cadence set by the rider’s abilities and engagement. 
This is what a typical lesson might look like:


For Adults

There’s no way we’re letting the kids have all the fun!
Though we have developed specialized instruction for children, we also have a horseback riding program specifically designed for adults of all ages and abilities.

New To Horseback Riding?

If you’re an adult and new to riding, you likely have lots of questions. We can help answer all your questions about our horseback riding program for adults.

However, if you’re like most… the biggest question you may have is…

“Can I Seriously Ride a Horse?!”

Only you can answer that, but if you weigh less than 260lbs and don’t have a serious medical condition affecting your heart, neck, back or general mobility, you’re likely all good.

That said, we should dispatch ALL the limiting beliefs we’ve heard through the years…

Any sound familiar?

Building confidence and helping people find their courage is our specialty

No matter the age of the rider, our priority is always to provide an incredible experience for our guests and for our animals. If you and your instructor feel more comfortable spending your first lesson learning about riding and working with your horse “on the ground”, that’s perfectly fine.

Whatever your intentions

We see all kinds of adults in our horseback riding lesson program.


Family Outings

We all need more positive and rewarding experiences and memories with our family. Day to day life can be challenging, and we often forget the bigger picture. Reconnect and create a memory that will last a lifetime with your loved ones.


 Our core values are based on the proliferation of confidence, empowerment, and responsibility. We exist to help people realize these things within themselves, we just happen to ride horses to do it!

We believe these attributes play an integral role in how we view ourselves and how we contribute to our community. Both of which are major pillars in our state of mental health and wellness. 

We believe that people should embrace and enjoy every second of life!




Besides having fun and being safe, fostering confidence and inspiring a sense of accomplishment is what we're all about! We can talk for hours about how being on the farm and interacting with animals can boost mental health and wellbeing for anyone.


We love our barn family! There's something about the barn that brings people together, and Autumn's Gate is no different. Whether sharing an adventure on horseback or mingling with new people at our events, this really is a great place to make new friends and to bond with animals.


Improve your agility, core strength and balance, all while having fun and being adventurous. If endurance or cardio is your thing, we've got the perfect solution for you. In general, horseback riding is a perfect addition to any health regimen, or an added bonus to having fun!


We're not kidding! Studies show that horseback riding can cause a significant impact on cognitive function. Improvements in problem solving, memory and retention is common. We hear from parents often that their children are more motivated and attentive academically.
