Horse Riding Lessons and Training near Medina Ohio.

David and Solange EllisHorsehaven is a horse riding stables with quick and easy road access to all of the Cleveland, Akron and Medina areas, just a few minutes from the center of Hinckley, OH.  We offer horse riding lessons for all ages and abilities, horse training, horse leasing to students enrolled in our lesson program, trail riding and the only stable in the area able to offer the unique opportunity to participate in the sport of fox hunting.

Solange Ellis has been the owner, instructor and trainer since Horsehaven Stables was established in 2000 and during this time has specialized in teaching Riding Lessons for the beginner rider of all ages.  With so few stables in the area being able to offer lessons for young children, Solange has found herself frequently teaching children as young as five.  There have also been several people who after reaching retirement have decided to pursue a new activity and now find themselves successful members of and enjoying the opportunity to follow the hounds any chance they can get while fox hunting!  It needs to be said that despite Solange’s vast experience with people who are new to the sport of horse riding, she can also develop and help progress both intermediate and advanced riders to the next level, or simply help with confidence issues if that is all that is required.

We are a lesson and horse training barn where many of our boarders originally started as new lesson students. When they purchased their first horse they stayed with us for their full equine experience.  We provide expert advice and personalized attention for the varying needs of each client and their horse.  Horsehaven is not a show barn, so there will never be any pressure to participate in horse shows or purchase a horse if you do not wish to do so, especially if you feel you are not ready for such a commitment.  Despite not showing, our clients here at Horsehaven find themselves more than busy with all the opportunities we can provide for Fox Hunting, Trail Riding and attending Hunter Paces.

Horsehaven happily does:
