For those clients interested in pursuing a purchase, we assist with the selection process and help to identify the specific qualities which are in alignment with the riders individual needs and objectives.

Horsemanship For Beginners

Dunham Woods has taught thousands to ride horses over the last 50+ years. We believe that the importance of laying a solid foundation of horse care is essential to the growth and progression as an equestrian and rider. These 6-week courses are offered through several local Park District offices. If your Park District does not offer our programming, direct sign up through Dunham Woods offices is available. Feel free to call or email us for more information and to see which Park Districts we partner with! Dunham Woods offers those who consistently take lessons with us, the opportunity to become a volunteer working student. It’s a great way to gain knowledge and grow as a horseman, as well as learn about the responsibilities of being on and around the farm. See instructor for details. This can sometimes count towards National Honors Society hours!
