The Very Best Lesson Horses
Kind, forgiving, and predictable horses make the best lesson horses. They are the type of horses on which students can learn, make mistakes safely, and improve their skills.
Great lesson horses are at the heart of any great lesson program, and Capstone Farm is lucky enough to give lessons on horses who all fit that description. All the horses know their jobs exceedingly well and have taught scores of riders the ins and outs of the sport. Many participate regularly at horseshows as well.
Half Leasing Opportunities are Available. Talk to Becca about the possibilities!

12 Year Old Welsh Pony Gelding
TobyMojo is Capstone Farm's tiny Unicorn. He is sweet, snugly, kind, and hands down the barn favorite. He is our leadline and walk-trot specialist, but also loves to teach riders to canter and jump.
Scotty is an 11 year old medium pony gelding who is as cute as he is goofy!
He is the first ride for many of our beginner riders, but can also go to the horse shows through the child's pony division.
And when Scotty isn't making you laugh, he is sure to be taking a nap.

Casper is a horse show veteran and is as sweet as can be. He is fabulous pony to learn to canter and jump on!
We are lucky to have such a special guy who can take riders from the home ring to the show ring!
Against All Odds

Dyno is our resident cuddler, and has the best nose. He is as sweet as he is good and has quickly become a barn favorite. Dyno is capable of teaching all of our riders, from newest to most advanced. He also has had a lengthy show career and looks forward to many more ribbons in his future!

Boston is a true unicorn - he is not only one of the sweetest horses to ever have graced the earth, he is also just a dream to ride. He expertly teaches our riders to walk, trot, canter, and jump, and is another one of our lesson horses who can go from the home ring to show ring!
A La Mode
Mid-teens Paint Gelding, 15 hands.
We often joke that Hunter is so perfect, us trainers can just go home and let Hunter teach the rest of the lessons. He is sweet, patient, and has the most comfortable canter *ever.* He has a lengthy show record, and can really do it all!

Nash is as fun to ride as his adorable! He has such a smooth canter and jump - perfect for learning. He has horse showed all over the North East and is happy to teach riders at home or away.
