First Farm Inn - A Unique Cincinnati Bed and Breakfast
Horsemanship Lessons Available
      Friendly horses of assorted colors and breeds offer noses to pet and eagerly take carrots and apples from outstretched hands.  During the two-hour horsemanship experience, you’ll learn grooming basics and help tack up. We help you mount and fit the saddle to you before heading to the riding arena where we work on becoming the horse’s leader and communicating when we want stops, starts and turns.  Then we head for the hills, along the ponds and through the woods to see what kinds of farm animals, birds and wildlife we can find. The experience ends with removing tack, feeding treats and bathing or grooming, depending on the weather and the day’s schedule. 
      Please let us know if you weigh over 225 pounds as horses should only carry 20% of their body weight and we will reserve our big horse for you.  Anyone who is fearful may be led on horseback. Riding is physically strenuous and requires good posture, balance, concentration, thoughtfulness and the ability to listen.
      Even the quietest horses can be unpredictable.  By coming to the farm, you accept responsibility and all liability for your experience on the ground or riding. You may bring peppermints, carrots or apples as treats if you'd like. Overnight boarding is available.

Ride with the Kids
      Riding can be a magical experience for kids. Learning to control a 900-1,300 pound animal and sitting nearly six feet off the ground can be a real thrill. Evaluate your child’s maturity level carefully when you schedule riding. We’ve had 10-year-olds who had extreme difficulty while mature five-year-olds did well on their own horse with a lead-line held by the instructor staying with the rest of the group on the trails. Younger kids don’t have the balance and control of their own bodies yet to ride by themselves. A respect for animals, good listening skills and a significant attention span are necessary to enjoy the riding experience. Our dog and kitties are very child-friendly as well. (Sun.-Thurs. Not Including Holidays)
