Two-hour riding lessons are available year-round at First Farm Inn for both B&B guests and those who aren't staying with us. Call to make a reservation. Lessons begin with grooming and getting acquainted with your horse. We tack up, mount safely and correctly, then begin in the riding arena, working on basic commands and getting comfortable with your horse. After you have demonstrated control and respect for your horse, we move out and practice riding through the woods and around the farm. Horses can be unpredictable. By coming to the farm, you accept responsibility and all liability for your experience on the ground or riding. First Farm Inn horses are a colorful assortment of breeds and personalities that will be matched as much as possible to your personality and physical attributes. It's a very individual experience, no more than five riders in each lesson. More experienced riders report riding at First Farm Inn is "like owning your own horse" but with coaching to ensure that you are safely centered and balanced.

The second visit for my daughter and me. She enjoyed her horseback ride very much, I felt comfortable knowing the education and care given by Jen in preparing to ride. She rode, and I enjoyed the front porch with lovely views of the flowers and bushes. The Treetops room was spacious. We slept well and enjoyed the breakfast.

Not only do you get two hours of horseback riding, you will actually learn a lot. Jen definitely knows what she's doing. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks so much. I hope that every person who rides with me 1.) learns about horses. 2.) Is safer and more comfortable with horses for the rest of their lives. 3.) Makes the lives of horses they are around better, safer and more comfortable. Riding in balance with your horse teaches us a lot about balance in our own bodies... More

First Farm inn is a very fun place to ride horses. Jen was very informative and helpful, she treats her guests with respect and as well as all of her horses. Over all it was very fun

I liked how well Jen covered all aspects of horse care. That included, grooming, putting on the gear, how to approach them, and how to ride them, and finally how to take off the gear and cool them down. She took us around together in a fenced area and taught us how to work with each horse. Some of the... More

I stayed at First Farm Inn overnight and ended up horseback riding as well. I loved how this was not "just for the experience" (though it was a great experience), but also educational. Jen is full of great information about horses, as well as so many other things! She really let the horses' individual personality shine while making sure we... More

I was very excited when my name was announced at my employee party for winning a $100 gift certificate to the first farm inn. I even traded in my Kings Island tickets because I could only win one prize since the value was over $100. Well that was a bad mistake. I first called the Inn to schedule our horseback... More

What a shame this girl chose to miss out on riding on the first sunny warm day of spring after days and days of rain. Lots of other people rode that day and had a great time. Following directions and using common sense is very important in most phases of life, particularly activities that can be dangerous. Deliberately avoiding an... More

I took my 12 year old daughter and her friend here for an overnight stay and some horseback riding. Both girls have been riding regularly for almost a year now and thought they knew everything there is to know about horses. Jen is so knowledgeable. They definitely learned a thing or two from her. She takes such good care of... More

I had the pleasure of coming across First Farm Inn while I was searching for places to ride in the Cincinnati area as I would be there for 2 months on business. From the moment we arrived the first time and she introduced us to her animals, we were made to feel comfortable and welcome. Jen lets you handle the... More

I love how the horses are loved and well cared for. I also like the way the owner tells you about the personality of each horse. When you get there none of the horses are prepped. While I like grooming horses, most people do not. It could be seen that the owner is putting the rider to "work" by making... More
