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
Quiet, gentle horses - Acres of trails - Indoor and Outdoor Arenas - Great Instructor - Non-judgmental atmosphere. This is a great place for adult riders of any skill level.
If you are looking for a fun, friendly, and educational place to be... you have found it! Great management, stunning horses, some of the best training around, and phenomenal horse care. As a professional in the field, I can say that this is one of the most realistic and entertaining places to be if you love horses. Never mind the great and large indoor!Due to the location there is some mud, but the stalls and huge grass paddocks for the spring and summer months makes up for that easy!
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 offer fun and informative 90 minute group and 75 minute private lessons that stress good horsemanship, a solid foundation and respect for the sport.
