Our teaching philosophy is based on our passion for the sport and our desire to help our riders achieve their personal goals. Our students have the benefit of learning alongside riders who are competing at the top levels of the sport as well as observing the development of top performance horses.
Hillcrest Farm provides an environment which fosters learning, confidence, and relationship building in a family friendly, fun environment. Through horseback riding we teach skills and discipline that can also be applied to everyday life.
We offer full service boarding, riding lessons for all ages and levels, and opportunities to show both locally or nationally. We have show-quality horses and ponies available for lessons, lease and purchase. At Hillcrest we dedicate ourselves to help you achieve your goals and exceed your dreams.
