Where and when can my little girl ride a horse?
My five year old daughter loves horses. Are there any good stables or horse farms near Vernon Hills, Il for her get some riding lessons? She's been up on a horse before at a stable near Galena, Il, which offered "lead-line" rides where an instructor leads the horse.

Near Vernon Hills? he only one I can think of is in Wauconda off of a frontage of Rt 12 heading south of Wauconda towards Lake Zurich. It used to be called Hawthorn Hills.
I'm in Galena Territory (Eagle Ridge. The stable here offers lessons and trail rides. Good luck, I used to ride as a child and really miss it. You have inspired to take a winter trail ride. Thank you.

There are a lot of good stables near Vernon Hills. Picking the right one for her will require you to figure out what you want to do - english, western, dressage, hunter/jumper, show, pleasure. If for now you have no idea what these all mean that is ok just pick one with a good school program and you will be fine. I would recommend you look at:
Red Coat Farm which is on Gilmer Road in Hawthorn Woods - ask for the trainer Val. She is great with the young ones.
Fields and Fences on Hunt Club Road in Gurnee
Celebration in Mettawa
All of these are english - hunter jumper barns that have great schooling programs. They will put your daughter off to a safe fun start. Good luck.
