About Us 

We are located in the middle of picturesque 2600 acre Ridley Creek State Park. Hidden Valley Farm was built in the 1700′s and bought by Sam Riddle, owner of famous race horses, Man O’ War and War Admiral. Today, patrons of Hidden Valley Farm can enjoy many programs offered in the historic setting.

We have been owners/managers of Hidden Valley Farm since 1996, in its current location since 1999. We truly enjoy sharing our love of horses with the public. We enjoy every aspect of the business: from a child’s first pony ride to becoming an experienced horseperson. We take great pleasure in introducing people to horses. Whether it is through a lesson, pony party, or just a simple interaction; we love sharing our passion with others.

Our vision for Hidden Valley Farm is for every patron to have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty and serenity of our farm.   Our dedicated and hard working staff help to make our visions for the farm possible. We appreciate the many long hours it takes to keep our facility running smoothly. Thank you!

Take a few hours to retreat from city life and share this small slice of countryside with us, our staff, and our horses.


We look forward to seeing you soon!

Tom and Ellie Chidester
