Horse riding experience designed for the Advanced* and the first time...

Horse riding experience designed for the Advanced* and the first time beginning rider. Learn about safety rules as well as hands on experience in brushing the horse, learn how to saddle and ride! Mount and ride the horse at a walk and trot and learn how to steer. For the brave at heart a canter or lope. Adults and children learn a bit about physiology and psychology of the horse. Did you know that the horse has two lobes in his brain; but unlike people they are not connected. This means the horse can see in front of him and behind him at the same time. Each eye is independent.

My granddaughter has been taking lessons from Rosemary for over 4 years and the experience has been grand. Rosemary has given her a wonderful foundation in this sport. Lily has learned to handle riding for the show ring and the joy of riding for pleasure. The horses are happy and healthy.

My daughter, Hannah, has been riding at Sunburst Farms with Rosemary for 9 years. She started at the age of 4 and is now 13 and has learned so much. I just want to say that this is one of the best horse farms I have ever been around, and Rosemary is very wonderful with the kids and her horses!... More

Thank you Robin. We love that Hannah continues on her journey of self confidence, independence and life skill building. Her huge smile tells it all as she works with the two legged and the four legged here at Sunburst. And thank you for her help with the Special Needs children and Adults that are with the Horses Healing Humans program.... More

This was followed by a trail ride. They even had someone to take lots of pictures with our camera. The kids are still talking about their... More

We went to Sunburst Horsemanship School yesterday. From the moment we arrived, Rose had my daughter, niece, and sister with horses. She was patient was able to teach all the riders at their different levels. Rosemary knows how to break down the lesson to teach the skills needed to move to the next level. My family loved the entire experience!

My family came to Kentucky and of course could not leave without a horse riding experience. My husband and my 7 year old are inexperienced riders and myself and my daughter are intermediate riders. Miss Rosemary and her staff took perfect care of all of us. She took extra time to ensure that everyone was riding at their level. Her... More
