🐴 We currently have a couple spots in group lessons available. Your rider can join a second lesson a week to help progress more or invite a friend to come try riding. Our groups are small, and you will always have the same instructor. Groups are put together by level and age. These spots won’t last long! 🐴

🎖 Interested in showing? We have shows for all levels and ages of riders local to us. Message Olivia to let her know you’d like to show. We do one hunter and one jumper show a month April-November. Winter months we fit them in when weather is nice.

🐎 Our camps are coming up, starting with Spring Break next week. Our Spring Break camp has a couple spots left. We take all levels or riders aged 4-15. Our camps are 9am-3pm, consist of riding, horse management, farm chores and crafts (each age group has a craft to their level). Camps are $450.

🐴 I was so bad about pictures today...but it was an AMAZING day at Hunt Club Farms Jumper Show! I was so impressed and proud of every single rider. Some may not have gotten ribbons, but they accomplished something new today and pushed themselves (I had tears in my eyes as one rider completed her first ever 2’3” round at a show with total confidence after a few shows of being too nervous to complete that height).

We had several amazing ribbons though competing against a ton of riders and some amazing rounds with no faults from riders.

Today I was reminded why I love my job and why I work tirelessly at it. These riders went out today and worked so hard on and off the horses and encouraged each other from start to end!

Way to go riders (Alina, Alex, Lauren, Rebeca, Jenny, Savanah, Charlotte, Zoe), ponies (I may be biased but my ponies are amazing and deserve the world!!) AND parents (you guys rocks and without you none of this would be able to happen)!!!

Congratulations to the Whyard family on the purchase of Skittles! The bond that this pony and this girl (Savanah) have, has been incredible from day one!
Savanah has shown nothing but dedication from the beginning (she even gave up all other activities). This rider has been riding for less than a year and is already proving to be an absolute amazing rider. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this pair! 🐴

⭐️ February rider of the month is Audrey Kielhorn and I'm 11 years old ⭐️

Here is a little about Audrey! Audrey has impressed me so much over the past year with her confidence and growth. She has overcome some holdbacks with confidence and showing that nothing is impossible, she even rides one of the hardest horses in the barn.

Years riding?
I have been riding for 3 years. I started at the original Serene Acres with Olivia's mom, Pam. I have been back with Olivia for the past 2 years after a short break and I'm really excited to be there and see where things go as I continue to become a better rider.

Favorite horse?
My favorite horse is Landon. I love him because he is fun to ride and he's very funny. He also reminds me of my older brother because he struggles to stand still.

Favorite thing to do in lessons?
My favorite thing to do in lessons is jumping. Although I sometimes get nervous before a big jump, I really enjoy the rush of adrenaline when completing the jump and the confidence I get when when a jump is finished!

What horses mean to her?
Horses mean a lot to me. Frequently the barn has been my happy place. I really enjoy interacting with all the horses. They make me laugh because each one has a distinct personality and are all very silly and smart! Olivia is a great instructor and I can't wait to keep learning new things.

Goals for the upcoming year?
I really want to improve my confidence as a rider and see where things go this year!

Need something special for your crazy pony loving rider this Christmas?! 🎄Leasing is a great gift to gift your rider. We have a couple ponies available for partial lease. 🎁

🐴Riders receive extra ride time outside of their lessons being able to practice what they do in their lessons and also build on their confidence.
🐴Riders also learn to become more comfortable on the ground with the horses.
🐴You receive priority on your pony/horse for lessons and shows
🐴Riders also make great friends with other riders, and build forever friendships

There is no better place than the barn! Message me today for info on pricing and which ponies/horses are available.

!DECEMBER RIDER OF THE MONTH!

⭐️Videoed below is our rider of the month!⭐️

🐴Name Mariah Zielke & age 11
🐴Her favorite pony is Pippin
🐴Her favorite things to do while riding and being at the barn is, Cantering, jumping, and helping Lydia tack and feed the horses Her favorite memory from lessons is Scissors and Around the World
🐴Her goals for the next year are Higher jumps and someday compete in a horse show

Mariah has been awesome to teach and is always up for a challenge at lessons. She never gives up while riding one of the trickiest ponies. Her and her sister Joya, always show up early to help groom and tack and stay a little after to help put ponies where they belong. Mariah has been riding with us since early September!

12/06/2020

We currently have 2 ponies available for part lease Lil Blue & Ella!

Leasing is a great way for your rider to get more saddle time and to gain more confidence. I see tons of progression in all my riders that lease.

If you are interested in leasing, please reach out for more information.
Riders must be in weekly lessons and ponies stay on property at all times 🐴

The Loudoun Valley IEA team has been doing great this season so far.
For those that didn’t know, I am the coach for the Loudoun Valley IEA team (we have members from Valley, Woodgroove and out of county schools). For next season I will be looking to add a middle school team and also continuing the high school team.

IEA is a great team sport and allows you to ride different horses in preparation for college or to ride for a career. You ride a new horse each show, and you don’t get much time at all to get to know the horse, it’s a true test of your riding.

If you or your rider may be interested, let me know and I’m happy to answer any questions. We have an amazing group of girls on our team right now.

Clearing out the barn and what a lot of stuff you accumulate over 18 years.
Serene Acres is still going strong at Olivia Huff new farm.
But we are leaving our beloved farm at the end of the month.
If it hadn’t been for the blasted virus we would have had a wee party but it’s not to be.
So, instead as I clean I am going to post the pictures I find of the wonderful riders from years ago. Many of you are now grown up, married and have children of your own. Not sure how that happened so quick!

Enjoy and please tag who you know.

Thank you for the years at Serene Acres original farm.

When you grow up with this lady as your horse trainer it is inevitable that you take on character traits like her!! What a fun 6 years it has been and here is to her remaining high school years riding.
Is Serene Acres going to the international Horse Show again this year?
