Welcome to Second Nature Farm! Located in the heart of horse country in Southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, we are an active, multidisciplinary facility with lots to offer, including boarding, lessons, training, horse showing, and sales.
Our two major programs include dressage and hunter/jumper/equitation. Our skilled, experienced professionals have what it takes to help you reach your riding goals, where they are to learn to ride safely in the arena or on the trails, or competing and moving up the levels. Our string of lesson horses are second to none (check them out on our Meet the Barn page!) and will safely help you progress in your riding, all while having fun.
Our lesson program is the heart and soul of our farm. On any given day, you’ll see various kids and adults alike taking lessons. We have multiple instructors (check them out on our Meet the Team page!) so you can ensure you find the right fit and the teaching style that works best for you.
We have an active show schedule, including regular trips to USDF recognized horse shows, local and rated hunter and jumper shows, and yearly trips to the CBLM Championships and Region 1 USDG GAIGs. If you’d like to compete but don’t have your own horse, we have schoolmasters available to lease and help you meet your goals.
We have several popular, active programs that cater to junior riders, as well. (Check out our Kids page!) For our dressage riders, we have our Junior Dressage Team, which makes yearly trips to Lendon Gray’s Youth Dressage Festival, also known as Dressage 4 Kids, or D4K. This team participates in other events throughout the year as well, such as clinics and fundraising events. For our hunter riders, we have our IEA Team, which is a major force in IEA Zone 11. The SNF IEA team is the reigning champion of Zone 11, Region 3 since 2015 for both middle school and high school. In 2017, the middle school team was Zone 11 overall champion and 8th place national overall middle school team. IEA is a great way to ride with your friends in a team setting and get to ride lots of different types of horses.
