Kathy provides horseback riding lessons for my daughter. She is a great teacher and really shares her love of horses with all the students. I like how much time my daughter gets to spend with the animals and how she has learned the responsibility of taking care of her horse. The trail rides are so fun! Also, Kathy was able to find a small group for my daughter to be a part of - this makes the lesson fun for her and more cost effective for me!!

Very knowledgable, patient instructor. Teaches you all about the care and way a horse thinks, and why you should do things as a rider. I feel I will be able to ride any horse with any type of tack.

Market Hill Farm is a wonderful facility with outstanding horses and a fantastic instructor; Kris Yankula. Her experience and training has helped me develop my riding and jumping to a competitive level. I've also had the pleasure of boarding horses with her for over a year. I couldn't recommend a better farm for riders of any level!

    Jen brings a vast amount of horsemanship, teaching capability, and spirit to every lesson. She not only teaches you riding skills, but helps you to understand the horse. She is very passionate about her trade and is a lot of fun to ride with and be taught by!

        In the relatively short time I’ve been at TQA my riding skills have improved exponentially!! Prior to joining the TQA team I struggled with some basic riding fundamentals. Through thorough, committed, systematic, individualized teaching I have corrected bad habits and my overall riding is so much better. (My conference is too...no small feat for me.) My horse has never looked better! He’s happy, healthy, and in perfect weight. TQA takes tremendous care of their riders (on and off our horses) and our horses. I can’t say enough good things about TQA!

        About

        "Quality in Performance, Dedication, Achievement, and Excellence" -- These are the tenets of Christopher K. Taylor's riding and training philosophy that resulted from his studies with some of the world's most prominent American and European dressage experts. Chris is passionately committed to classical training, always striving for lightness, balance and harmony with a unique instructional style for both the horse and the rider. He asks a little at a time and praises often. The result has been happy, highly motivated horses and riders who can focus, as partners, on learning their art. Chris stresses "basics, basics, basics" and small incremental steps. He has observed that when horses derail in dressage, even at the highest levels, it is usually because the basic foundation has been ignored. He strongly believes that regardless of the discipline, any horse and rider will reap the benefits from dressage. This philosophy has proven its value for both Chris and his students. Chris has competed internationally at the FEI Grand Prix levels, has been FEI Champion in Prix St. Georges, and was selected to represent Bermuda at the 1999 Pan American Games. Lessons are offered from beginner through FEI. Chris also has regularly scheduled buying trips to Europe which clients can attend. All that is needed is a passport and a plane ticket. Lodging and transportation are provided.

        I have been training in a classical balanced seat method for over 10 years. With various experiences in horses for over 20 years, I started with a BS in Equine Management from Midway College in Kentucky. Since then, I have continued to further my classical education by studying with such notable trainers as Cathy Wieschhoff , Jeurgen Helmut, Jessica Stark, Kim Barteau and Enrique Martinez. Currently I am studying with Marijke de Jong. For a number of years I taught Equine Studies at Kishwaukee Community College and was involved in development of the "Festival Of the Horse & Drum" held annually at the Kane County Fairgrounds.
