Besides being one of the only full service boarding facilities in the Rio Grande Valley, Miller Horse Farm offers horseback riding activities for everyone. From total beginners to experienced riders, any child or adult will be able to have a great riding experience in the picturesque landscape of the Southwest. Beginner riders can take a trail ride in the hilly desert or in the lovely surrounding farmland – between the green fields and along the canals. If you are trying to become a good rider someday, you can take lessons in pleasure riding, hunter, or dressage on a horse chosen to fit your purpose. Are you already an accomplished rider and want to ride during vacation? No problem! You can lease a horse to ride, jump, or trail ride – as if it was your own.
