I've been taking western riding lessons with Dawne Wilson at Sand Hill Farm for the past year and the experience has been completely 100% positive. She is an amazing instructor and very patient with all skill levels.

I started learning how to ride horses with Lynn as a retirement present to myself and that was over 3 years ago. The experience has and still is glorious. Being a teacher and a teacher supervisor as a career, I found Lynn to be not only a gifted rider but a wonderfully kind, generous and thoughtful instructor. Her direct, simple instruction mixed with anecdotal remarks makes learning fun, understandable and doable. I always come away on a high from my riding lesson. I highly recommend Lynn as an instructor for all ages, from elementary schoolers to big kids like me who always dreamed of riding and finally got the chance.

I have Gwen as a personal instructor for over 5 years now. She is very thorough in instructions and evaluations....she is always careful with safety for the rider as well as the horse. I have watched her work through many different situations between myself as a rider and my horse that I was riding. As sometimes the training is needed to evaluate what the horse is saying with his behavior. I have learned western as well as English with Gwen.

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!

About

"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!
