- Pease Farm hosts at least one weekend riding clinic each year in either spring or fall. Here riders work in teams to improve both their ground and saddle skills over an intensive two-day schedule geared to all levels. Groups are intentionally small, usually no more than eight participants. Riders are welcome to bring their own horses for the weekend at no additional cost.
Pricing: $195 / weekend
- In the past, Pease Farm has also hosted clinics on behalf of the national Centered Riding® organization featuring guest instructors of national acclaim such as Robin Brueckmann, a Level 4 Centered Riding® instructor, U.S. Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver and Gold medal winner and a 2000, 2004 and 2008 Paralympian.
Scheduling and pricing are announced as dates become available.
