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 candorproviding 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.
We had gone to several barns/ranches trying to find a good fit for my 9 year old daughter. Jessica has been by far the best fit in terms of teaching about the basics of horse care, basic horse riding, and now training for shows. She is able to balance just the right amount of demands for my daughter to achieve success and mixing in praise where needed. My daughter's love of horses and riding has grown tremendously. As an added benefit my daughter general confidence in life has grown along the way. We owe a special thanks to Jessica.
people in there are very kind! I arrived there at 11:30 and then met lady Michelle. She is very nice. They offered helmet and shoes, and it is totally safe to interact with the horse as long as you follow the trainer's direction. It is quite funny to learn how to brush horses and try to let them understand you. I spent a hole afternoon there, and tried to help Michelle curing her horse tommy who got a wound on his face. Highly recommend you guys to choose this place.
Ann is an excellent mentor and is thorough and encouraging. I am enjoying every lesson (2 so far). I'm new at horsemanship so I haven't the experience/expertise to be more technical in a review. I am very very satisfied with Ann Simon. She'd be great with kids too!
Sarah, I would like to take lessons with you. Please e-mail me at email@example.com.
My daughter has learned so much from her experience with Robyn! Not only has her confidence grown but she had become a confident rider and can ride almost any horse she rides. I cannot say enough. If you have the opportunity to get a lesson with Robyn it will be money well spent.

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.
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.
I am teaching horseback riding and equestrian knowledge. I have over 30 years of experience. I teach all ages and disciplines of riding. I have experienced teaching handicapped riders to ride with confidence.
