It is our prayer that you will not only develop your skills as a rider, but that you will also learn the deep things of a horse’s character and personality. Your lesson will include not only riding, but also catching, leading, grooming, tacking, and caring for your horse.
We offer both English and Western lessons in 12 week sessions in both the spring and the fall. Riding lessons can start for anyone as young as 4! Anyone choosing to pay for the 12 weeks in full will receive a 10% discount.
3 sessions per week/ $250 per month
2 sessions per week/ $200 per month
1 session per week/ $150 per month
Have you always wanted to own a horse, but couldn’t afford one or didn’t want to make the long-term commitment? Now you can pick one of our beauties to call your own!
Please fill out our leasing application and we will go over your skill level. If we deem your abilities are up to speed for safely handling one of our horses, we will match you up with one that suits you. You must go through two free training sessions before you start. (Additional training is available at our regular lesson fees).
Sessions are 3-hour time slots (2 hours max riding time) where you can catch, groom, ride, and just enjoy your horse.
For your safety anyone under 18 must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian while on the premises. No one other than the person on the lease is allowed to ride or handle the horse.

Meet The Herd
Grace is the leader of our herd and has been at OBIC the longest. She is a beautiful Tennessee Walker/Paint, and definitely knows she’s gorgeous. She enjoys long trail rides and bonding one on one.
Pine is a sweetheart and a registered Paint. Anyone who meets him instantly falls in love with him. He enjoys going slow but listens very well when you ask him to pick up the pace. He is fearless on the trails and also doesn't mind to work in the ring.
Eve (short for Evening Star) is our gentle giant! She is an all black Percheron, except for a small white star on her forehead. She prefers to go slow and steady and loves trail rides! She used to pull a plow for the amish and is enjoying this new chapter of her life.
Arrow loves people, and will walk right up to you to say, “hello”. She has a lot of energy and is ready to go, but will also take care of her less experienced riders. We don't know much of Arrow's background but she has shown she knows a bit about barrel racing and is fearless on the trail.
Sky came to us with Arrow so we don't know much about her past either. Sky is more of a shy girl who sticks to herself. She does great on the trail and in the ring and has even shown a bit of talent in jumping. She successfully recovered from skin cancer not long after we got her.
Pippi is owned by Anna who lives on the farm but is often seen helping out with the ministry's many activities. She is the pony of the herd, but don't let her size full you. She has more spunk and sass than the horses twice her size.
Bella is our donkey and is often found hanging out in the petting zoo. Because of her size she isn't used for riding, but loves children and helps out for demonstrations during camps and events. Give her a scratch behind the ears and she'll love you forever!
Elinor is a sassy mini Jersey dairy cow. She is newer to the farm, but has made herself at home at OBIC.
is Elanors baby.
