I have never done any horseback riding before so I was a little nervous to start but after meeting with Susan for the first time and being introduced to the horses and having a tour of the property I felt very comfortable to begin my lessons. After my first lesson I was hooked. Susan is an amazing instructor. She is very informative, patient, and her passion for horses and teaching is highly expressed. She is also super fun to be around and very down to earth. I am currently on my fifth lesson and I am handling the horse better than I've ever excepted. I have fallen so in love with horses and learning how to ride I eventually will like to compete. The Triton Property is also very beautiful. There is plenty of space to ride and learn. This has truly been a very therapeutic and wonderful experience and I can't wait for my next lesson!

Susie was wonderful with our daughter. Patient and kind. She explained each step and the importance of that step. My husband and I will cherish today.

We have been taking our 8 year old to Susie for over a year and she has a great time with her. Not only has she learned about riding also the overall care of a horse as well as helping feed the chickens and gather eggs and clean up. It has been a great eye opening experience for my daughter. She really emphasizes attention to detail in her riding and safety is a priority. Susie is great with the kids and has a keen sense of when to push and when to back off. We have become great friends with Susie and really value her friendship.

FAQs

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

    After the first lesson the price drops. Packages of 3 are available which adds to the discounts.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First explanation is position and the "why" demonstrating those concepts. Then putting the rider on and typically working in the round pen where they feel safe and have advantage of control over the horse

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My first instructor was a famous woman in the Saddlebreds who taught Elizabeth Taylor to ride for the movie, National Velvet. I received training from noted Saddlebred trainer, Roy Register whom I worked for later. Many professional horsemen have helped me in the major show divisions. I attend clinics, read and have exchanges currently with other professionals
