Assistant trainer here! Kelly is literally the best boss ever. Her training and riding skills are impeccable. Her teaching, riding, and horsemanship skills not only are affective, but she always explains why and how they are affective. I have only been here a year and not only have I learned more about teaching and training, I have learned what it feels to be surrounded by individuals that make coming to the barn feel like your escape from reality. This is my second family! The horses are in top quality care here and saftey is number one when it comes to our team.

I started riding with Natalie Rooney at Four Star Farm to improve my riding, primarily for dressage. Her lessons are consistently positive, and I come away feeling both myself and horse are iable to enjoy each other more fully. Natalie practices what I call compassionate candor—providing feedback that helps you to do your best and learn while not making you feel incompetent. She has a passion for horses and riding that is infectious and makes learning fun! If you have competitive goals--at any level--she works with you to develop a plan for accomplishing them. I am constantly astonished at the extent of her overall horsemanship knowledge, which she willingly shares. I also appreciate that Natalie invites stellar clinicians, such as Greg Best, Axel Steiner and Alfredo Hernandez, to Four Star Farm and encourages her clients to take advantage of their expertise. I can't imagine having a better experience and am so glad for me and my horse that I found her.

I loved my experiences at Vescera Show Stables! Dina is kind and easy going-she makes riding and the barn fun. I have moved on as a professional jockey at the racetrack and I credit Dina and her experience combined with her teaching ablilty for a lot of my success. She teaches the foundations needed to go on in this business. I would recommend her to riders of any level-everyone can benifit from her. Can't say enough good things about her-shes a trainer, a rider, a teacher, and a worker!!

Megan is awesome at what she does! No matter your experience level she is able to accommodate riders of all ages. I had not rode a horse since I was about 10, so I was a little nervous, but Megan made it so much fun and eased my nerves! She has several horses that will accommodate riders of all ages.

Everyone offers a different way of training, horses and humans alike respond differently with who they interact with. I like to make relationships with the students as well as horses and see how we can better communicate between all parties by studying human and horse behavior.

About

I am a horse trainer. I will come to your facility to help you with your riding skills, horsemanship, and training. I have 23 years experience in training young riders and horses to level II dressage, combined training: training level, and hunter/jumpers (3'6), gaited exhibitions, as well as endurance rides. I have managed facilities and shows, and shown two in hand in driving competitions as well as driven sleigh rides. The basics of horsemanship are similar across the range of riding styles; students love working with me because they learn not only how to ride, but how to understand what is going on and be proactive, so problems don't happen. Horses succeed from patience, understanding and continuity. I teach from basics to finesse like a whisper, if you want to know how to communicate with your horse, so you are a team, then I would love to help you learn.
