We cater to people who want to ride and show Hunters and Jumpers, although a riding academy is a fine place for anyone to learn responsibility and nurture their love for animals, even if it is not their goal to compete. We do not accept boarders from any other discipline (ie. western, dressage, etc.). We attend USEF rated horse shows on the INHJA (Iowa/Nebraska Hunter Jumper Association) circuit in Zone 6, and the IHJA (Illinois Hunter Jumper Assn.) circuit in Zone 5, and non-rated shows on the MIHJA (Midstate Illinois Hunter Jumper Association), as well as clinics (our favorite clinician is Karen Healey). We hold 10 schooling shows at our barn each year (Winter Schooling Series Dec-Apr, 3 MIHJA shows and 2 USEF Rated shows), and we host a clinic every November. We also run a summer camp (horse care in the morning and a riding lesson in the afternoon) for people who have never ridden before to intermediate and advanced riders. We offer reduced board ($100/month) for people who buy our school horses and allow them to continue giving lessons. People who buy school horses under this clause pay for the horse's farrier and vet bills, with reduced board cost. We also train and sell show horses that are not eligible for use in the riding academy. The school horses are available for our students to lease and sometimes horses are available for share board.
We offer two outdoor arenas (180' x 300') and (100' x 200') and an indoor arena (60' x 240') which each have their own course of 18, 13, and 10 jumps, respectively. We have 15 10' x 12' stalls in a barn to the south of the indoor arena and a heated barn with 6 12' x 12' stalls at the north end. There is a 24 stall open air barn by the north barn called the Packer barn (named for the horse who built it, Al Packa') for extra stabling during summer shows. The indoor arena has sliding doors that separate it from the stabling areas. There are two tack rooms in the south barn and one large one in the heated barn. The office, also heated, runs along the west wall of the indoor, with large windows for viewing. The tack shop is adjacent to the main office and also has windows to the indoor arena. There are 10 outdoor turnout paddocks and one 5 acre pasture. The footing in all three rings is a fine-grained sand and doesn't get slippery. The rings are dragged regularly and sand is added as needed. We grow all of our own hay and have a barn attached to the north barn to store it. Website:huntermarkfarm.com
