Introduction: M.B.S. Starts by getting to know what the future equestrian is looking for and pairing them with the right horse for each individual. Learn in a safe and judgement-free environment. You can choose to have the full  experience where you learn about grooming and saddling or just ride. All riders learn about how horses communicate with you and vibe with your own personal horse. I specialize at working with those with no horse experience, those who need to rebuild confidence, a competitive showing career or just to have a relaxing time. Leasing horses upon request are available as well as training Lessons are 60 minutes and are $70 per session. Additional discounts for first time riders. English or Western.

As a family new to the equestrian world, Michelle has been fabulous to work with. Our young (6.5 years old) horse enthusiast, felt comfortable with Michelle right from the start and looks forward to each lesson!

Michelle is great! She carries with her 20+ years of riding and having grown up with it and training under her amazing mom. Michelle has such a natural feel for horses, has so much knowledge about the "how's" and "why's" of tack, how horses move, how we move - and has great imagery in explaining things. She's been helping me improve balance and my body bareback, and I definitely recommend her!

Michelle is kind but firm, flexible, professional, and knowledgeable. She is who you want caring for your horse or teaching you personally!

She’s been teaching me for several years (since I was 7) and I knew nothing when I first came to her. Now I know almost everything. She’s easy to communicate with and a great teacher. She’s taken me to shows, taught me to jump and how to be safe with horses. She has many great horses to learn on.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $65 for one hour lessons. That includes bonding with the horse, learning about riding and one full hour of riding!!!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've been riding since I was a child and giving lessons and training my entire life with my mom. Then, I started my own business. I love sharing my passion for riding and horses with others. I offer lessons to students and love working with people on bonding with a large beautiful creature!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with all types of individuals. From children to adults. To people and kids with autism, and physical therapy needs. To people with anxiety or stress. I specialize in training problematic horses which has given me the patience and understanding to help students become one with the horse. I work with people who just want to ride, those who plan to own a horse if there own, and those who want to show competitively.
