Our focus is to help individuals achieve their potential through the benefits of horseback riding and the experience of a working farm environment. Our programs are adapted for each rider. We incorporate therapeutic measures that strengthen muscles, improve balance, coordination and endurance, as well as lengthen attention span, and increase determination and ambition.
For our recreational riders we create well rounded riders while developing horsemanship skills.
Therapeutic riding is beneficial for clients of all abilities. The movement of the horse strengthens the development of fine and gross motor skills and provides sensory input. With this premise in mind, the Challenge Unlimited team develops exercises and activities to benefit each individual, addressing challenges that are not easily addressed in a classroom or clinic, enhancing the movement of the client and stimulating a response.
Recreational riding at Ironstone Farm encourages riders to learn a variety of horsemanship skills, from brushing and tacking to riding in various disciplines such as Western and English!

Small horse shows are held where the fun is stressed and the stress is removed, helping riders build a solid foundation in a sport that can become a life-long pleasure. The horse shows are open to people who have been taking riding lessons at Ironstone.
