Our primary focus here at Battlefield Park is providing a safe environment for you or your child to learn to ride and interact with horses. Our equestrian program combines qualified staff, experienced school horses, and a new state of the art facility. Our amazing lesson horses have taught many children and adults alike to ride. They live happily in their herd out in the fields, horses are happiest when they live naturally grazing on the land with plenty of fresh air and water.
Battlefield Park is nestled on 6 acres of beautiful pastures and mature trees, and we have a small retention pond that houses our fish and turtles. Our indoor arena that measures 75' x 150' of riding area with 16' ceilings to accommodate all equestrian activities in inclement weather. The indoor arena has 10 stalls attached and a beautiful lounge and tack room with powder room. Our outdoor arena measures 120' x 200' and can be used in most weather conditions due to its crushed blue stone footing. Our small barn houses 10 horses and a small tack and feed room. We lease surrounding pastures in which our horses live most of the year.
Battlefield Park has chosen to follow the United States Pony Club curriculum in all of our horsemanship activities. We feel that it provides individuals with a strong foundation in which they can grow in their abilities and measure their skills. Riders will be placed into groups according to their level and current skill with horses.
What to wear:
You do not need to make a large investment in riding gear to learn how to play polo. All that is required is a riding helmet, a pair of jeans and a pair of boots with a heel.
