Horseback Riding Vacations

Lantern Lane Farm is located in the Middleburg area of Northern Virginia. Otherwise known as “Horse Country”, it is also taking on a new title as “wine country”.  Known for its quaint and charming small towns, lovely B&B,'s and fabulous restaurants, the area is most perfect for a Horseback Riding Vacation.

Cross Country Ride With Debbie

 

The farm is located at 45 minutes from Dulles Airport and about one hour from Washington DC.  The facility includes a beautiful indoor arena 90 feet by 200 feet with fabulous dust free footing.  Heated and air conditioned tack room, indoor bathroom, indoor wash stall, and fabulous trail riding complete the wonderful facilities.  The Bull Run Mountains create a beautiful and serene view from the indoor arena and other view points while riding.  Sky Meadows State park and the Manassass Battlefield are within driving distance for additional cross country riding.

Our riders can choose to have an educational type riding vacation that would validate their current training or fill in the gaps if they think something is missing, or choose a more casual riding program.  If more intense training is desired, we can fix old problems by isolating the causes then spend the time it takes to create new understanding and motor skills to fluidly make the changes.  We can also advance riders to new levels of riding in a 4-6 day vacation through our riding clinic and/or combination riding vacation program.

You may choose to ride once a day for an extended period of time, or divide your riding into morning and afternoon sessions.  The riding vacation program is designed to give you as much riding as you wish to have while visiting the beautiful Middleburg horse country area of Virginia.  Longer lessons are great for getting to the bottom of riding problems that may need great detail and discussion to resolve, when an hour just isn't enough.  The longer lessons will allow you to ride in the morning and explore other activities in the area in the afternoon.

There are beautiful wineries and tasting rooms in the neighboring towns and counties.  For history buffs, we are close to several major Civil War Battlefields.  The golf enthusiast will find public golf courses available throughout the area.  Middleburg, Upperville, and The Plains offer wonderful restaurants and charming bed and breakfast accommodations.  

Debbie Craig and Lantern Lane farm offer equestrian knowledge, safe schooled horses and programs that improve riding and self-confidence; while the area offers great places to stay, fun dining, beautiful horse country and history.  Call to reserve your play dates with us!  See contact side bar.

Whatever the season, Virginia has something special to offer.  With an indoor arena and relatively mild weather we can teach and ride out twelve months of the year.  There are different packages to choose from including your own customized version that you can create with the owner/instructor: Debbie Craig. Below you will find some typical choices and their rates.
