  • English Horseback Riding Lessons

    For the Spirit of Horses

    (11 reviews)

    I had always wanted to learn to take horseback riding lessons but as I got older I felt that maybe it was too late. Then I found Susan. When I had started I had never been on a horse. Her Natural Horsemanship method of teaching gave me a wonderful foundation and made me very comfortable around horses because I learned how they think and how they may respond. Susan, is a wonderful, patient instructor and I highly recommend her. Suzanne

  • Horseback Riding Lessons

    Bill Baehr Horsemanship

    (4 reviews)

    I highly recommend this trainer and his methods. This past summer it was my job to take an untrained headstrong 3 year old mare (July) and turn her into a sound riding horse. I soon learned that I was in way over my head and needed help from someone with extensive training experience and past knowledge. That person was Bill Baehr. Bill worked with July and I from start to finish, first teaching excellent ground manners and respect of personal space, desensitization and trust, and finally the lesson that being ridden can be fun. July progressed quickly and before I knew it, it was time to lope her across open country. Amazing! I never would have thought that you could take an untrained, barely handled mare and have her learn so much so fast. Bill was not only extremely thorough and comprehensive, but he was unhurried and made sure we had the results we wanted before moving on to the next task. Riding an inexperienced horse can be scary, but I knew that Bill and I had done the necessary groundwork and I trusted him completely. By using proven training methods, Bill ensured the safest environment possible for me and my horse. Bill was also kind to the horse and very patient. The best part of the training was my direct involvement, and Bill’s belief that the rider/owner must have a hands –on role. I pestered him with many questions about how and why things were done, and Bill patiently explained everything I needed to know. He would show me what to do and I would take over and do them, while he coached me every step of the way. Learning how to train from Bill was a privilege and I would love the opportunity to work with him again. I truely believe in his methods and would recommend him to any rider, trainer, or horse enthusiast.

  • Horse Riding School

    Down Centerline Dressage

    (2 reviews)

    I've worked with a number of riding instructors over the years but never one that works so incredibly hard for every student. Emily has great skill for evaluating each horse and each rider and adjusting every lesson to fit that day & that moment in time. She is enthusastic & encouraging. You will leave each lesson with great tools & more knowledge and understanding of your horse and of riding then with most riding instructors. Emily works to create independent riders who can continue their training during practice rides and feel confident to do so. If you don't quite have that confidence yet, she will get you there. Under Emily's watchful eye I have grown so much as a rider and my horse is happier and more fit then ever before.

  • Horse Back Lessons

    Lessons with Denise

    I specialize in teaching beginners on how to communicate, trust, and ride horses. I teach both Western and English styles of riding, in a safe and comfortable way. I start all beginners on a line until they have the confidence and skill to control their own horse. We slowly make our way off line and into the larger arena. I do not allow my students to advance to the next level not until they have displayed proper control of the horse. I aim to provide a safe environment where humans and horses can learn, interact, and grow together by establishing a relationship of mutual trust and respect through the use of gentle communication.
