Nancy and I worked together on a short Chrstian Film, she was Script Supervisor, I was Production Coordinator. I've observed Nancy training her horse Cherry. Great job on both. Nancy is very committed to doing excellent work, with professionalism and friendliness.

I have loved horses my entire life but was never in a position to own my own horse. I then spent 16 years helping rescue Thoroughbred horses, and finally at 50 years of age, I decided it was time for me to realize my dream. I wanted to adopt a rescued Thoroughbred but I had no idea how to handle or properly ride such a spirited animal. Had it not been for Dave Drulias and his patient and effective training methods, I would not have been able to realize my dream. You can read more about my story here -

Belinda is an amazing riding instructor! Her horses are beautiful and trustworthy and her natural horsemanship techniques are practical, unique, and very ethical. So thankful to have her as my trainer.

    Since I started training under Erika Campbell, I have since took First place in my Rookie Reining Show class at only my second Reining show! I was brand new to the sport of Reining and needed a lot of work on my riding skills. She has helped my overall riding skills immensely and given me the confidence I lacked. Erika makes training fun and she puts her heart and soul into training horses and riders. Whether you just want to be a better horsemen or go compete, Erika will help you accomplish your goals! She is very professional and one of the the hardest working trainers that I know. She cares about her clients and treats them like family. I would highly recommend her for any horse training services you need!

    Clear, consistent prompt communication. Attention to horse care and wellness that is second to none. Compassionate training of the horse that seeks first to understand, then to inspire a better performance rather than using force or coersion. Genuine respect and consideration for the owner/client. I have been riding for over 30 years and cannot say enough great things about Kelly Jennings and Cellar Door Farm.

    Elite Equestrian Riding Club Specializing in Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation, Showing, Sales, Leases and Ponies. Passion for the equestrian sport and love to develop new riders and watching then flourish into true athletes.


    I have a lot of experience with kids, teens, horses, and teaching riders of all ages and skill levels. I am most adept with Western style riding but I also love to teach beginning English style classes! I'll also teach anything you want to know about general horse care and ground handling. If you've got the horse, I'm willing to teach!


    Training Philosophy and Techniques Lessons videotaped consistently and uploaded to a private YouTube page so that clients can visually learn the concepts I am trying to teach. Weekly themes and lesson plans. Instruction and exercises progress through the week. Dissecting steps and building onto them every day leads to success by the end of the week. Every step ties into the next, and a great deal of time, thought and organization is placed in this process. We attend clinics with other professionals regularly, and schedule our own in house clinics when possible. All lessons are private, and if the need arises to combine riders, never more than three in a lesson. Clients are part of the process in training their horses. Feedback, suggestions questions, and open communication is encouraged. I dont just tell the clients what to do, I teach them the how's, why's, what's, etc of what they are learning. I maintain certain steps be completed before graduatiing to the next level. This creates riders and horses with strong foundations. Clients and horses are schooled at the levels and heights they are competing in. I am less concerned with the height of the jumps or ability of the horse and more concerned with the concepts being taught at that time. This ensures rider safety and prolonged health of the horse. I communicate what I teach because I ride and jump the horses myself. Concepts are better translated when the trainer experiences the same as the rider. This combines the art of training and instructing, often misconceived as the same thing, and creates a more successful program. The horses always come first. There will never be a class at a show, a lesson, or a jump that is more important than their health. My future goals as far as numbers of riders and horses is set very small. I feel that after a certain amount of horses, there is simply not enough time in the day to properly care for them all. I know every horse inside and out. I hold great value in family and friends, and in the memories created in a friendly barn environment. At the end of the day, its about my riders and my horses. We can learn, be serious, successful, and competitive but when that is all said and done, we can all embrace one another as a family. The barn represents for many the only place to escape the troubles and stresses of their lives. Creating and maintaining a relaxing environment for all my clients is of extreme importance to me. I protect and stand up for my horses as well as my riders. Any mistreatment of either one of them will not be tolerated. Love, and laughter are mandatory :) We hope you see the difference between us and others...... Jonathan I love watching the development and advancement of my horses and students reaching their full potential. I enjoy working with children and adults and of course caring for the horses. Everyday is different, and sometimes can never be predicted.


    I provide horseback riding lessons and horse training in safe handling, pleasure, trail riding, and jumping up to three feet and dressage up to 2nd level.
