I believe that some of us are born with a love of the horse that is permanently embedded in the very core of our being. This is the way it has always been for me. I grew up in a family where no one rode and no one was interested in riding. They believed that my love of all things to do with horses was just a strange infatuation, a childhood phase that I would eventually outgrow.
It was not until I reached my thirties that I finally bought a horse of my own, a young Saddlebred mare named "Lady". We explored the wooded trails of Riverview Park and I learned that I was not such an oddity as my parents thought. There were many women and girls (and a few men and boys) in Pittsburgh who were just as hopelessly in love with riding as I was. I was finally among people who shared my passion for all things equine! It felt like coming home and I have been privileged to ride regularly ever since.
Our Mission at Tipperary Farm is to nourish this love of the horse in
today's youth and to educate these young equestrians so that the ancient
and noble tradition of horsemanship will endure
Our goal is to provide a safe, educational and fun environment for beginner riders. Children aged 5-12 will be taught in private lessons on school the owned ponies, Wizard and Mini Cooper.
Owning and boarding a pony can be very expensive. If your child has shown an interest in riding but has no experience, why not start by taking a lesson or two a week? If the child shows talent and the passion is there, you can eventually start looking for a pony of your own.
Farm will be a special place to
learn to ride, make new friends, and share a
special bond through horsemanship.
