Willow Hill Farm is a complete equestrian facility offering boarding, training, lessons, sales and breeding. High School students have the opportunity to see first hand the joys and realities of working and living with horses. Foal watch, training young horses, and going to competitions are some of the favorite activities.
Students learn to live and work together while increasing their riding skills. Chores each morning start the day before attending school. They share responsibilities in the household and in the stable. Our program gives students the knowledge to choose their own area of specialty within the world of horses. An integral part of our family life is having meals together twice each day. The importance of completing high school well is stressed.
Horsemanship skills are taught from the very basics to the skills needed to own a horse or get a job in the horse industry. For those who want to teach riding at a riding school, there are opportunities to observe and assist in teaching. Those who want to ride competitively as a dressage or event rider receive help in their specialty, and we offer opportunities for competitions.
Willow Hill staff are members of the United States Dressage Federation and the United States Eventing Association.
