Ascot Farm in Miami is located off the Florida Turnpike in the southern end of Miami-Dade county. The farm offers a riding academy with horse boarding, horseback riding lessons, training and sales. Ascot is able to offer instruction from beginner to advanced whether you are are learning to perform in horse shows or just starting out on a horse. The farm's Hunter Ponies are all different sizes and are all champion show ponies. Lessons begin with learning about how to be safe around the horses and ponies, then applying safety when riding. Lessons are available to children from age 2 to adults under 240lbs. Once a rider has excelled in their jumping and is ready to advance over higher than 2' fences they will need to invest into a horse/pony of their own. Lessons are a minimum of twice a week and are one on one private lessons. The Pre-School lessons are for ages 2-5. Young riders learn about safety on horseback, as well as the names of the equipment and parts of the horse while being led around the arena for their 15 minutes of fun and learning. The children progress with each lesson and may advance into the full 30 minute sessions. Contact Ascot for current pricing.
