Lessons On and Off the Farm

While our riders come here to become better equestrians, we want them to leave better individuals as well!

Here at Hopeful Manor Farm, we place a big emphasis on stewardship. Helping to take care of the farm where we ride and the horses that we ride with gives our riders the full experience on what it’s like to work with horses. We strive to instill core values such as responsibility, team work, perseverance, and pride in ones work.

Lesson Options


We offer group lessons, where your rider will learn along other riders and make friends along the way!

  • Starting @ $50.00 an hour


For those riders who need more one on one lesson time, we offer private lessons.

  • $45 for 1/2 hour

  • $75 per hour


“Our daughter has been riding with Ashley for almost three years now. Hopeful Manor goes beyond what any other barn offers. As others have mentioned it is a family atmosphere. Ashley and the other families and riders are inclusive and kind, the girls are encouraged to get involved and take ownership. Development at every level. Ashley pushes her students in lessons but is so very in tune to what they need at the time whether it is pushing or pulling back. The show program at Hopeful Manor is equally impressive. This year the girls in show were well prepared not only in riding skills but also in skills specific to being successful at their shows. Thank you Ashley and Hopeful Manor Farm. I could never fully express our trust in and gratitude for what you do for our daughter.”

“We love HMF. It’s such a wonderful place to learn about horses. My daughter has been apart of the HMF “family” for 2 years and loves it.
A wonderful group of people from the instructor Ashley Sills, to the riders and the parents who are there supporting this sport.”

“My daughter thinks of Hopeful Manor as her second home. Ms. Ashley is an amazing trainer that really connects with children and animals. She always puts the safety and wellbeing of the kids first. The large indoor and outdoor arena are awesome, and everything is kept clean. Just a great facility with great people!”

“Hopeful Manor is so important in my life and in many others. Mrs.Ashley is great with horses and people. The farm is lovely and the horses are very well taken care of. I would highly recommend going to this farm.”

“My nine year old son has ADHD and anxiety. I read that horses are great for children such as him. Just getting him to leave the house is always a battle. After his first session all he wants to do is ride! Ashley and her helpers are so wonderful with him and my daughter. They have found something they love at Hopeful Manor and my heart couldn’t be happier. My son, especially is so light and happy whenever we are there. All he does is smile! Everything about Hopeful Manor is just amazing and my family is greatly for it and Ashley.”
