Holly Hill's focus is to develop our riders in a safe and friendly atmosphere on well-trained horses and ponies. Our lesson program is taught by qualified professionals and our group lessons have a maximum of four per group. Riders can take lessons just for the fun of it, but there is always the opportunity to compete when you are ready. Please contact us to book a trial lesson.                   (613) 362-6036

  • We recommend purchasing a properly fitted approved riding helmet and boots with a heal (preferably paddock boots or riding boots). We have helmets that can be used until such time as you decide to purchase your own.
  • Proper attire for lessons includes a neatly fitted T-shirt or Polo shirt (no tank tops or tube tops), a neatly fitted sweater or jacket in the colder weather, and pants such as breeches, jodhpurs, stretch pants, or fitted jeans.
  • Long hair should be tied back in a pony tail or braid. It could also be fitted up under a helmet in a hairnet. We recommend that loose fitted jewellery not be worn during lessons as it can get caught on something. 

Please Note

We expect riders for all lessons to help groom and tack up before the lesson and groom and clean tack after the lesson. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the lesson time.


Our horses also love getting a treat after the lesson; carrots, an apple, peppermints, or horse treats are their favourites.

If you are a student wishing to book a trial lesson or sign up for monthly lesson programs please email us at: hollyhillfarm@live.ca or call 613-362-6036. We will get you set up.


How do I pay for my lessons?
Payment is easy!  If you are registering for a trial lesson the price is a one time payment.  Monthly lesson packages are billed at the beginning of each month and must be paid at or before the first lesson of each month. Payments are made  via e-mail money transfer to hollyhillfarm@live.ca, cash or cheque.  


I am going to be absent for one of my lessons what should I do?
 

If you are registered in regular monthly riding lessons you may get 1 make up lesson per month if you have provided us with a minimum of 24hrs notice in advance. Less than 24hrs notice no make up will be offered. No exceptions. If there is a month where we cannot provide the 4-5 lessons that month, you will only be billed for what we can offer.

Do you offer public trail riding?
No we do not.  However, we do have a nice path around the property which is great for riding and cooling out after lessons.
