I train horse and people in maney different activeties, it keeps thing interesting for the horses and people I train. the horses I work with are happy to go to work and learn new things, and so are the owners, and lesson clients I chair my experances with.

    A lot of time is spent correcting the small details that are crucial to an overall excellent learning experience .

    Staci is wonderful. She is great at detailed instruction constantly explaining rider/horse communications. I am a beginner and she has taken me from not knowing how to do anything to how to approach the horse, how to groom and saddle the horse, and how to ride to stay upright in the saddle. She really pays attention to your posture and giving feedback as you circle around her. I totally recommend Staci for instruction. She is an expert in her field and is a great instructor. Not every accomplished rider has the talent for teaching but Staci definitely does.

    I had never been on a horse before I met Staci three months ago and have been going to her riding lessons once a week since. I appreciate her lessons highly for many reasons: She is really great at keeping a good balance between having fun and focusing on the progress of the rider; she adapts wonderfully to the needs of the student, e.g. I am a person who needs many verbal explanations so she explains a lot verbally. Last but not least, I really like the horses which are well-tempered, kind, well-educated and agile. I really feel lucky having met Staci as a teacher and am looking forward to the lessons yet to come!

    Staci is a delight to work with. She showed a great deal of patience and has a wealth of knowledge. Her experience and love of horses was very apparent. I met with her for an introductory class that was about 1 1/2 hours. The only thing I wish I could change would be how far away her barn is from my home.

    I've never ever been horseback riding before, Staci was very friendly and cordial even though I was a half and hour late to my appointment. I think she did a good job showing me the basics on how to tack up a horse and the proper safety precautions to take when approaching and riding. It was a cool first experience. Ill be back to learn more! I wish the lesson could have been longer, haha!

    I have found it hard to find a horse riding instructor for just pleasure riding. Most are specialized in English (hunter/jumper, dressage) and teach even beginners using the English saddle. I took 7 lessons before finding Staci and still did not feel comfortable with my legs, hands, or seat. She was able to get me to feel more comfortable in the saddle by making me aware of how it felt to be doing some little task right. I was looking for an instructor closer than 20 miles from my home. Her facility is more than 30 miles, but I think that it is worth the drive because I have learned more than I had with other instructors.

    I'm happy to hear that she had a good time. I do very thing in my power to have the experience fun, comfortable and worth while. I enjoyed talk and working with Peggy, I hope the work with in the future.

    I first met Staci when she was working for a very well respected trainer in our area. I was impressed by her way with horses and her kind but firm manner with them. When my homebred filly was ready to break to ride, I took her to the trainer Staci was working for and Staci played a huge role in her training, and was in fact the first person to ever get on her back. I was VERY pleased with the training my filly received, and my filly and Staci got along very well. Staci now owns her own training business and when I needed more training on my horse, I knew Staci was the one I wanted to go back to. I have not been unhappy. My horse is well cared for, happy, and trained beautifully. I would highly reccommend Staci to anyone who is looking for a good honest horse trainer. Thank you Staci!!

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Before you schedule for your horse to be trained or take lessons, I would make an appointment to just see the facility and talk in person to the horsemen/women. Make sure you are comforable!
