    Default Good lesson barns/instructors near CNU?

    Hi all, my baby brother is attending Christopher Newport University and I'm thinking about getting him some riding lessons for Christmas. He used to sit on the ponies/horses a bit when I was growing up riding and is pretty comfortable around them, but is really a beginner, so looking for a place that can put on good basics. Must be pretty close to CNU as he doesn't have his own transportation, would need to rely on friends.

    Is there anything out there?

    Thanks very much in advance!

    I was in VA Beach running a half marathon and saw this place (don't know it personally), but looks interesting: http://www.arborgatefarm.com/

    There is also this one: http://www.gentletouchstable.com/index.php
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    CNU has an IHSA team - they ride out of Amazing Grace Stables.

    It's about 20 minutes from CNU but since the team rides there he might be able to snag rides really easily to get there
