Very thorough with teaching all aspects of horse care and riding. My kids had a great time and are much more confidant on horseback.

My work with Megan was as one of her instructors in her credential program here at the Foundation for the Equestrian Arts. I was one of her professors, and also supervised her as an instructor when she was working in the riding academy here. Megan is a dedicated professional, she's an experienced rider and trainer, and a scholar of the art of riding. Yet she's also very down to earth, not 'full of herself' as so many riding instructors seem to be. She is as comfortable executing the highly focused movements of haute ecole, piaffe, passage, flying changes-- as she is enjoying a day on the range rounding up cattle for branding with family and friends. It's not about the tack! It's about the tact. She's funny, focused, and very well educated as a riding instructor, and highly skilled as a trainer. Megan's warmth and empathy helps riders feel safe to make mistakes, and she is skilled at helping sort out the mistakes toward a more and more balanced and connected riding experience. The seatwork alone would be worth the lessons, but along with the balance, Megan's teaching develops the rider's ability to improve the horse through the intelligent use of the classical art. Megan Rau is both intuitive and intellectual, and she's a lot of fun to be around, too. I highly recommend Megan Rau Classical Horsemanship.

I love riding with Sarah. She has helped me grow as a rider so much more than any other teacher I have had and I’ve only been riding with her for a few months. Her teaching style is amazing and super easy to follow. She always punches you to do your best and conquer anything that is making you nervous, while also being supportive, kind, and patient. Best riding instructor I’ve ever had.

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.

    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.

    My work focuses on the independence and self-advocacy of the student. Whether through writing, reading comprehension, competitive riding, or horsemanship, my goal is to shape my students into independent thinkers, so that they may ignite their own love of learning, discover their passions, contribute to an ever-changing global society, and champion their own beliefs in the world.
