Laura is passionate about horses and teaching. My daughter is 7 years old and Laura is amazing with her. She is calm, kind, and knows how to teach and make people comfortable. She has a very beautiful relationship between her horses, and she teaches you to build this relationship step by step. I am taking lessons as well and am learning everything from grooming, feeding, building bonds with the horses, and riding. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested about horses and riding.

We have our 7 year old taking horse riding lessons with Laura. Her horse is so well trained both my husband and I feel extremely safe with our daughter riding her. Laura is so wonderful with our daughter and they have developed a lovely relationship, and my daughter's confidence is blossoming. I love the fact that Laura teaches her everything from brushing a horse to riding skills. We would recommend Laura's Lessons for sure!!

I had been looking for a riding instructor for my 10 year old son that would be a good match. Knowing my son and being a former teacher/western rider I really wanted a person to match his learning style, be kind, patient and make his formal riding experience positive and meaningful. Once I met Lisa and observed how she began the riding lesson, communicated with my son, worked with the horse and progressed through the session I was joyfully impressed with her as an instructor. My son is excited and looks forward to his lessons with Lisa. I am so happy that Lisa has started my son on the right foot with caring for a horse, grooming, saddling, riding, working on his seat/balance, keeping light hands and enjoying being around horses. I am very grateful to Lisa for making riding lessons such a wonderful life long learning experience. As for me, I have been able to take riding lessons with Lisa too. I rode western when I was 9 to 18 years old and loved every minute of it. Then, I had to stop riding after I went to college and then life took over...marriage, job, traveling and having my son. Lisa was kind enough to offer lessons for me to get back riding again. I was thrilled, so I decided to try riding english focusing on seat work. Lisa was so patient and kind about getting me back into the saddle feeling confident again. She made riding fun and challenging for me mentally and physically. It has been so nice to be able to ride again, have it be an enjoyable experience, ride with my son and learn new skills. Lisa is an amazing instructor for kids and adults. It is a bonus getting one on one instruction. If you are interested in horseback riding for your child and/or yourself, contact Lisa.

Any rider aspiring to be accomplished knows the attention is in the details. Lisa has consistently - and kindly - offered valid suggestions to improve my riding with my own horses. Good riding transfers to any horse you ride! After my last seat work lesson with Lisa, I had wonderful rides on my "western" style horse as well as my "English" style horse using a new way of balancing myself. The resulting unity was sometimes magical. I am looking forward to more magical moments!

We have loved Lessons with Lisa! Lisa is so knowledgeable, kind, and a great teacher. Her horses are sweet too. My 11 year old daughter has learned so much, improved her skills, and really discovered a love for horses as well as developed much needed confidence over the 2 years that she's been with Lisa. We'd recommend Lisa to anyone looking for riding instruction!

I have been working with Codi now for five months and she is outstanding. Her training style is adaptive to the horse and rider and she goes above and beyond to find flexible times that work for your schedule. I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a trainer or for a new instructor to contact her!

My daughter started taking lessons from Codi (Legacy Equestrians) late last summer, and she loves it. Codi is so positive, fun, encouraging, and knowledgeable! We have both learned so much from Codi. I would highly recommend her as an instructor to anyone, beginner or experienced!!

My daughter did a four hour riding lesson on 12/31/16 with Darla at Kids and Horses. It was excellent! I would highly recommend this riding school. My daughter is 9 years old, extremely shy and a beginner with horses. Darla was a great instructor! She made her feel comfortable right away. We can not wait to continue lessons at Kids and Horses.

Katie amazed me from day one with her knowledge and understanding of horses, patience with questions, and the effort she puts into fully interpreting and explaining horse behavior and effective riding/training techniques. I have learned more in 3 sessions here than I have in almost a year of work at a highly esteemed barn. I cannot give enough praise to Katie's care, compassion, and genuinely good attitude toward both her horses and her clients.

Tara is one of the best instructors I've ridden with and is especially amazing on the training side. She has a ton of expertise with green horses and is is an all-around excellent horsewoman. Cottonwood offers a great, diverse lesson program; a warm, family-friendly atmosphere; a gorgeous cross country course and some of the BEST scenery and trails around. We board our young horse there and could not be happier.

About

Cornerstone Farm is committed to offering top-notch English riding education in small, focused classes. Our goal is to assist people in maximizing their love for horses and riding by constantly enhancing their knowledge of horses and riding ability, conforming to the classic horsemanship principles. A proper position in the saddle produces an effective and strong rider, so we put equal importance on control and position. Our method to flatwork includes basic dressage training: horses are ridden forward, with suppleness, rhythm, and balance. This foundation permits us to jump under control and safely. At Cornerstone Farm, we specialize in bringing along green horses correctly and slowly. We're also available for problem solving or boosting the training of a competitive horse. In addition, we can provide exercise riding or maintenance for schooled horses, and can exhibit horses for owners at local competitions. For riders who do not own a horse, we have school horses available which are willing and sound. They vary from ponies to thoroughbreds, guaranteeing the right mount is on hand for riders of every ability and age. Students riding school horses join in saddling and grooming, and should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to starting your lesson, and stay for 30 minutes after every lesson to properly care for your mount.

I board, train and give riding lessons. I have 40 years of experience in the equine arena. I am a 4-H leader in the equine project and have had a 4-H club for 30 years. I am a very laid-back person and easy to get along, with but safety around horses is an absolute. I have taught all ages, from 7 to 50. I love English and have a wonderful English school horse that can make you have a great experience learning how to ride. I became a professional trainer to help people transform their lives, and I want to see you accomplish more than you can on your own. It is difficult to find the time and motivation, so I will push you to accomplish your goals. I am giving back.

About

I am an English-style horseback rider with 11 years of experience. My journey began being a little girl interested in horseback riding. It grew into a passion, part of my everyday life and later competing (hunter-jumper), training horses and caring for horses. I have decent amount of experience in this field and I am at the beginning of taking my passion into another level - horseback riding training. I am a student offering horseback riding lessons to beginners and intermediate riders (must have your own horse), help with care of your horse when you are on vacation or in need of an advice from more experienced person, the training of your horse (lounging, under saddle, ground manners) and the help of making connection between you and your horse. The rider's and the horse's safety is my number one priority. I believe in friendly, well-structured, consistent, safe and fun way of teaching. Note that I am not officially a certified trainer therefore I might be an affordable option for you.
