About Back to Basics

For the past five and a half years Back to Basics has served as a starter barn for many riders who either were brand new to horses or are seeking to get back into the and accomplish goals that they have always wanted to reach. After the 2019 snow storm when the roof of the arena collapsed at the flagship location it wasn't a question for B2B if they would find a new home or close its doors. The Weideman family choose to seek out a new home so that the B2B family could stay together. 


Now happily nestled within Rainbow Meadow Farms in Rochester the programs have evolved and more opportunities have been presented for instructors and riders. 

Instructor Sarah currently holds 3 national certifications as a riding instructor. Our lesson program is treated as a "living" thing and is constantly evolving and adapting to the needs of our students. ​

Our Lessons


At B2B we pride ourselves in offering the "out of the box" riding lesson. We do not just focus on riding or as many of our students say "the fun stuff." Our students learn everything from leading, grooming, horse health, bandaging, stall cleaning, sheath cleaning, bathing, tack care, and so much more.


We teach a variety of disciplines but stress the fun of horseback riding no matter what your goals are. 

Our requirements of our students are: you are willing to try, willing to learn and have fun!
