First Farm Inn
Really Learn to RidePrice from: $539
Learn to ride in Kentucky's horse country. At First Farm Inn you'll learn how to communicate with your trusty equine friend and convince all 1,000+ pounds of him to do what you want. Then we ride over the hills and through the woods keeping an eye out for other wild and domesticated creatures. Rides generally only include up to five riders and one or two instructors. After you make your horse comfortable, you can stretch out and watch the sun set from the outdoor hot tub. Wake up smelling the delicious all-you-can-eat breakfast. Then take the horses out again and practice the new skills your body has integrated during the night.
Two nights with breakfast, use of the hot tub, two horseback rides for each of you are only $539 in the 1870's room, $575 in the Treetops room.

Riding can be a magical experience for kids. Learning to control a 900-1,300 pound animal and sitting nearly 6 feet off the ground can be a real thrill. Evaluate your child's maturity level carefully when you schedule riding. We've had 12-year-olds who had extreme difficulty while mature five-year-olds did well on their own horse with a lead-line held by the instructor staying with the rest of the group on the trails. Younger kids don't have the balance and control of their own bodies yet to ride by themselves.
A respect for animals, good listening skills and a significant attention span are necessary to enjoy the riding experience. Our dog and kitties are very child-friendly as well. Discounted lift tickets for Perfect North Slopes are also available with these packages. We ride year-round, just not in rain or sleet storms.
