I have been taking Western Horseback riding instruction from Dawne Wilson for approximately two years and in that period have gained the confidence to compete in horse shows and take on other types of riding without doubting my abilities. Dawne is the type of instructor that uses her unique ability to communicate not only with the the beginner rider such as myself but with those experienced riders that need to master more advanced techniques. Dawnes ability to match the rider to the horse combined with the flexiblity to allow a change in horses to maximize on identifing different temperments, form, gaits, etiquette and performance is most helpful. Dawne is also open to many requests, such as the day I wanted to ride English versus Western. She smiled and said ok....now that was a spur of the moment change and she has so much knowledge that it was no problem for her to switch gears and teach. I also must comment on the level of training of the horses, that she herself trained. They can be ridden in any style and even jumped...this is an asset that can only enhance your riding experience. With Dawne as my instructor, I have met or exceeded all my performance goals to date and now have more advanced goals to accomplish in the upcoming year. Although I have been plagued by some tough orthopedic injuries that have hindered my ability to ride, Dawne continues to allow me other avenues to learn and to remain in contact with the horses. She is person that continually will teach you, always make you feel good about your riding, but will always be honest about the level you are at and what you need to do to move forward. She is a pleasure to work with and she drives you to do better. Some of the phrases I would use to describe Dawne and her teaching ability are: • Good Time Management • Creative Talent • Good at Planning and Goal Setting • Problem Solving • Training & Mentoring • Skill to manage the horse extremely politely • Teamwork • Safety Conscious

I went to Gold Rush Farmswith my fiance to take a lesson and trail ride. During my lesson the instructor was not only extremely knowledgable, but also made me feel at ease seeing as I don't have much riding experience. And the trail ride was just the icing on the cake!! It was so beautiful and Roy, the horse I was riding, was just so sweet. Not to mention the gorgeous Spring views! My fiance ans I had such a wonderful time. I was also pleased to learn that all the trail rides are private, meaning besides the guide, you don't go out with a group of people that ypu don't know. It was also awesome how they had their own private trails on property. We will definitely be visiting Gold Rush Farms on a regular basis!

"Not your average horse riding lessons!" This is coaching on how to handle, read, and control horses based on how they communicate with each other- in other words, you will learn the language of the horse! We begin with safety, controlling and directing the horse on the ground, gaining confidence and a rapport with the horses. We follow the Parelli Natural Horsemanship model, and utilize their extensive online information and video tools, Savvy Club DVDs and magazines. Homework is often given in the form of some reading or to view a video online. It's fun for any age beginner or for someone with their own horse who feels there is "something missing!" We offer one- to three-hour lessons with our horses for $35 per hour. If you have your own horse and need coaching, we will travel up to an hour from central CT to coach you at your farm for $45 per hour. Our customers love the special bond and communication they form with the horses, as well as the special understanding of being able to read the horse to know what, when, where and why to do next!

About

Our horsebackriding instruction at Greenlawn Equestrian Center is superior because we emphasize safety first and teach proper positioning to ensure a good foundation for riding in any discipline. In addition our facility is always well maintained and clean. We limit the number of lessons going on at one time to ensure safety in the ring and to avoid overcrowding. Come see for yourself our facility and meet our trainers!
