Bay Meadow Farm offers private, semi-private and small group lessons to beginners through advanced levels in various styles of riding including Hunter, Equitation, Eventing, and English Pleasure. Students, of ages 5 and up, learn how to perfect their riding skills along with all aspects of horse care in a positive, educational, and fun atmosphere. We ask all riders make an effort to commit to riding consistently throughout the year on a weekly basis. It takes numerous lessons to learn how to properly care for the horse and safely ride, therefore we do not offer one time lessons.
Ride one of our well mannered school horses or your own horse. A discounted lesson rate is offered to individuals who board with us. Trailer-ins welcome.
- Quarter (Fall/ Winter/ Spring/ Summer) $425 or $155 a month
- Individual group lesson: $45
- 1/2 hour private: $45

We strongly recommend that students participate in our lesson package so that they can consistently advance their riding skills.
- Group lessons last for 45 minutes to an hour
- Please come early so that you have time to tack up you horse so that you are ready to ride at the start of the lesson time.
- If the the weather is uncooperative students will have an educational lesson in the barn, learning about proper horse care, horsemanship, show prep, and other important topics. If Harford County school are closed due to the weather, lessons are cancelled as well.
