Imagine . . . then discover North Road Farm

Were you or your child born with the horse gene, an unexplained passion for horses?
Hi! I’m Jan Brubacher proud owner, instructor and 4-H leader here at North Road Farm since 2004.

Horse Fantasy to Horse Instructor

I was and still am crazy about equines 🙂   Like you, I fantasized about horses incessantly: reading, drawing, made-up horse show, pretend riding. After begging my mom for horseback riding classes, at eight years I got my first lesson and haven’t stopped. In 2002, after a series of career and personal events I began life as an instructor. Now, I’m super proud to have lots of loyal, consistent students who keep returning and referring their friends and family to North Road Farm.

Having a competitive nature, I got a taste for showing – and winning.  Now, 30 years I still take lessons and get my adrenaline high in the show jumper ring, out in the field on my fox hunter or training a horse to be safe and cooperative riding companion for you. Please visit Meet Your Horse for profiles of horses and ponies looking for riders.

Peppermint Ponies 4-H Horse Club

By 2004, I had restored my barn so North Road Farm and Peppermint Ponies 4-H Club went from fantasy to reality.  Today, I lead a dozen (usually more) spirited 5-18 year olds girls & boys deep into their fascination.  The 4-H motto is: Learn by Doing.  That’s all I cared about as a kid: Outside, hands-on physical action, not virtual screens, games or social media indoors.   Thru 4-H   children and adults grow-up through horses.

Horseback Riding Camp

Many of these bundles of energy also attend Summer Horse Day Camp.  If your child wants complete equine submersion, camp is a fun, educational and physical experience they’ll be asking for each year.  Wonderful friendships are bonded through unforgettable hands-on activities all about horses.

Horse Apprentice Volunteer

Do you want to learn how to care for and ride horses and ponies?  You may be interested in Horse Apprentice Volunteer program.  Earn work credits towards horse activities.

Riding Lessons & Classes

If you are a beginner or restarting rider read answers to common questions.  Consider starting with Two Hour Introduction to Riding if you are at all nervous, anxious, worried, recovering from a traumatic horse related incident or overcoming a disability.   There’s no rush or pressure, so you have plenty of time to get to know your horse or pony & equipment and feel confident.  

A family event or celebration? Take over the farm and have it here!  If you are not in a hurry, you, family and friends will have quality experiences here 🙂
