IRON HORSE RIDING ACADEMY
Eventing, Dressage, Pony Club and Pleasure Riding Training in Sherwood Oregon
Experienced Riding Instruction
Iron Horse Riding Academy opened in 2009 under the experienced hand of Adria Fix. Iron Horse strives to teach every student confidence through safe handling, proper care and riding in partnership with our beloved horses. Our lessons focus on Eventing, teaching each student the art of Dressage, the courage of Cross Country Jumping, and the technical skill of Show Jumping. Horsemanship and respect of the horses are just as important in our lessons. We wish our students to be life-long learners and to teach them how to learn on their own. Adria and Amy McCaffrey are business partners and head trainers for Iron Horse Riding Academy as of 2019. Adria has been teaching since 2004 and has managed several programs since 2002. Amy has been riding for over 40 years in the Hunter/Jumper discipline and has been teaching since 2011. Our school horses are sweet, gentle-natured horses that have a kind eye and patience to help teach every student to be their best.
Professional Riding Lessons
We offer group and private lessons 5 days a week Tuesday to Saturday with lesson times available mornings until evenings. We evaluate student’s ability and place them in a lesson that best fits their skill level. We also offer an Intern Program for our intermediate and up students to allow them more hands on experience with horse care and management that they won't always learn in lessons. With wonderful trails near the property, lessons may take breaks from training and have fun playing games and exploring the area from horseback. The Advanced students will have opportunities to participate in the in-barn shows and those who buy or lease horses can travel to shows.
Come visit us and see just how much fun you can have with our fuzzy equine friends!
