Horseback Riding

Appel Farm is partnering with Windfall Farm to offer horseback riding lessons to campers!

  • Campers travel 10 minutes away to Windfall Farm along with an experienced riding instructor from Appel Farm.
  • Campers attend two-hour classes, Monday through Saturday during both minors.
  • Instruction offered for beginning through advanced campers.
  • Families are invited for a performance at the end of each session.



Windfall Farm Dressage, a prestigious farm located just 10 minutes from Appel Farm, has created a specialized program for Appel Farm campers to combine horseback riding with the arts. For an additional cost, campers can choose to enroll in the program as both of their minors and will spend every afternoon learning about horse care, dressage style riding, and even jumping, and will work towards a choreographed performance on horseback.

The Program

Windfall Farm fosters an environment that encourages campers to build their own confidence by guiding them through an understanding of the horses and their relationship with them. Campers are given personalized instruction, tailored to each individual’s skill and comfort level, that encompasses all aspects of horsemanship. The horseback riding program at Windfall Farm not only gives campers a new or refined skill in working with horses, it honors the spirit of the artistic programs offered at Appel Farm, such as creativity and responsibility. Riders learn riding skills, and at the end of the program, present a choreographed musical performance on horseback to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities.

Our summer camp curriculum in partnership with Windfall Farm offers riding instruction for riders of all disciplines and skill levels. Whether campers have never been near a horse before, or if they are accomplished equestrians in western or english riding, we have something to offer. We believe in a thorough equine education including care and theory of training as well as riding for competition and pleasure. Our campers are free to enjoy horses in a fun, wholesome, family oriented atmosphere.

Under the direction of Jennifer Allen and Toni Culley, the Instructors at Windfall Farm have over 40 years of combined experience in bringing the joy of riding to our students. Jennifer and Toni have each earned many ribbons and awards in not just dressage but in other disciplines as well including Show jumping, English and Western Pleasure, Showmanship, Foxhunting, Pony Club, 4-H, 3 Day Eventing, Vaulting and even Barrel Racing. Still, our first love is Dressage. They are both still actively competing in Dressage at national and international levels.
