Well-A-Way Farm is a USHJA recognized and approved Riding School. The instructors are all USEF and USHJA SafeSport Trained and Certified. Our head trainer Michele, the farm’s owner, is a USHJA Certified Trainer and an official with USEF as an ‘r’ rated Judge. She is currently working on her large “R” promotion.
Riders are expected to wear collared shirts (NO TANK TOPS) and well-fitted vests or jackets in the colder months. Shirts tucked in with a belt, clean breeches, and jodhpurs with half chaps or tall boots. Hair should be secured in a neat ponytail, braid, or traditionally put up under your properly fitted helmet.
Riders should plan on arriving 15 mins early to help groom and tack up their horse. Depending on the level of the rider we have Working Students available to assist them. After the lesson, the rider is expected to untack and groom their horse. Plan your time accordingly. Note, some horses do consecutive lessons.
WAWF provides the tack for the Riding Academy (saddle, bridle, girth, and grooming tools). Riders are responsible to clean what they use and putting everything back in clearly marked areas. $5 tickets are given if items are not put away.
