Our show program focuses on the varying AQHA and APHA disciplines ranging from: western pleasure, trail, western riding, horsemanship, hunter undersaddle, hunt seat equitation, showmanship, in-hand trail, and halter.


The lesson program offers private lessons only to anyone interested in learning about horses and riding.  All lessons are private (Western or English) so we can customize a riding program to your individual goals.  For more information about lessons and camps please visit Joshua's Heritage Farm's website here.


We offer both full and pasture board.  Our horses are fed alfalfa and orchard grass hay and grain.  Barn is custom built by Classic Equine, each stall has lighting systems, mats, and Nelson heated auto-waterer, and the riding ring is 200'x250'.  Again, to learn more about boarding please visit Joshua's Heritage Farm's website, here.
