Alexa was outstanding and really took the time to teach me the 'why' behind all of the prep work and safest processes for a beginner to learn about horseback riding lessons.

Our experience with Kelsey and Jerry was outstanding. My daughters riding improves dramatically from her three lessons and she had such a great time. Thank you again and we will be back when we return to Florida in a few months.

About

I think we stand out because we offer a unique experience. Swimming on horsback is something that is not offered with most trail riding operations. We also know our horses very well. We are your guides and also we are the owners. Therefore your guides are always experienced and knowledgable.

Bevin was very helpful and attentive to helping me improve in my riding from all aspects. She's very knowledgable and I've noticed a lot of improvement after just one lesson. She has the most affordable rates of any instructor in the area and her lessons are well worth the price. I'll definitely be going back and I recommend her to anyone wanting to become a better rider.

I couldn't ask for a more experienced and amazing trainer than Kristin Holland! She teaches more than just how to ride, but how to care for the horses and learn every aspect in the equestrian life. Not only will you learn to ride with her, you will also make a Bestfriend with the horse you are learning on!! Her top grade lesson horses know their job so you can have an enjoyable lesson and learn at your own pace!! I wouldn't recommend another place to go than Ivan Drago Eventing!!!

About

Our horses are fantastic and the trails are gorgeous. We ride on all state land. There are huge oak hammocks, pine forests, and fields. The State of Florida has done an amazing job providing these trails for folks to enjoy. Words don't adequately describe how nice it really is to ride here.

I came to Kim almost 2 years ago. As a Para-Dressage rider it is very difficult to find a trainer who is willing to work with me. (Although not wheelchair bound, I do have severe muscle deficits). Add to this the fact that I needed a school horse to ride as well, and finding a good coach and trainer is rough. The day I met Kim changed the trajectory of my riding career. She has a "box of tricks" as I call them. In the box is so much knowledge that she shares so willingly. She has a great way of explaining what she is looking for, and what you need to do. My lessons are always fun. She does challenge me, and has brought me over several humps, and taken me to a whole new level of riding in a short amount of time. She has worked with me (and other clients) on the balance chair & ball, teaching way's to better myself as a rider while unmounted. For me, that is a huge plus. Her education and knowledge in rider body mechanics is vast, and we always end up laughing during the task. Thanks to Kim, I now own my first horse. Kim put the word out, and helped me develop parameters for what I needed. She was always professional when horse shopping. She never tried to get me to go to a higher budget than what I set. Kim and her husband went with me to see the horse I ended up buying. They were also with me when we took the horse for the pre purchase exam, and helped me every step of the way. I also needed a saddle to better fit my new mare, as well as myself. The saddle I owned put me in a total chair seat, which I struggled to get out of. (my last coach thought it was a great fit for me) Kim and I tried several different saddles over a few months. She did research to find the saddle she knew we needed. She found the perfect saddle, had it semi custom made for us at a very reasonable price, and it is truly amazing the difference it has made for both myself and my mare. She never once pushed me into a saddle line that she reped. Kim is all about the best saddle for the horse and rider. Since Kim is still competing herself, she is very supportive of clients who want to show. As a show day coach, she is exactly the same as she is at home. She is very laid back, calm and soft spoken. Her lack of show ground anxiety will help any rider. Working with Kim has been a great experience. She run's a face paced, yet laid back, no drama barn. The care she provides to the horses in her care are second to none! She has a very keen eye, and often see's things and catches little things before they can become problems.

About

I am a certified (ARIA) hunter-jumper instructor with experience in showing and teaching for IHSA, IEA, hunt seat, hunt seat on the flat, and equitation at A shows, local shows, and 4H to the regional level. I offer a variety of lesson packages to suit everyone. Students who are new to riding begin in private lessons with plenty of one-on-one instructions until they are able, if they choose, to transition to group lessons. More experienced students may choose between private and group lessons. Groups are based on age and level of ability.
