Windfall Farm Academy

We offer top quality “hunt seat” riding lessons in a professional, welcoming, safe and fun environment  Regardless of your background or past experience, our aim is to cultivate a life long passion and knowledge of horses for every student.

We are fortunate to have the experience and skill of Amy Drake as our lead Academy Instructor. She enjoyed decades of showing in the equitation and hunter divisions and enjoys sharing her knowledge as a trainer.

WFA offers lessons on experienced school horses for beginner through intermediate riders. Our goal is to provide a solid foundation for riders of all abilities. Our program is designed to encourage teamwork, mutual respect, responsibility, and trust between horse and rider.

For intermediate riders experienced with complete horse care, we offer full and half-lease opportunities.


Monthly Tuition Plan: $225/month includes 3 lessons. Payment is due at the first lesson of each month. Additional lessons may be added within the same month for $75 each as schedules permit (payable at the time of the lesson).

Rider cancellations within 24 hours of the lesson time will be charged in full unless you can make arrangements to trade time with another rider to take the lesson you are cancelling.

Weather cancellations may occur the day of the lesson and we will do our best to provide as much notice as possible and reschedule accordingly.

Horse Management Clinics

We offer several unmounted clinics throughout the year. Participants will be under the watchful guidance of our experienced and knowledgeable Academy Instructor. The minimum suggested age for our riders is 6 years old; there is no maximum age for riders!
