The Riding Academy

Riding Lessons Offered

Our goal at Willowick Farm is to provide an education for the equine enthusiast. Our Lesson Program is based upon the principle of safety first. So come and enjoy with peace of mind while we teach you horsemanship in McDonough's premier equestrian facility.

We offer year round instruction for beginners through advanced riders in HUNT SEAT, SADDLE SEAT, and WESTERN.

Whether you're interested in becoming a show ring competitor or simply Love Horses and wish to enjoy casual riding and instruction in a friendly, professional atmosphere, you are welcome in our lesson program.

All lessons are 30 minutes in length and are taught individually to ensure full attention and supervision of the rider. We strive to meet individual goals and have numerous lesson horses available to help you gain confidence as you learn.

We also offer wonderful camps throughout the year!
