From the property to the people to the horses themselves, Paris Farms is high quality. The owner and head trainer is one of the most professional and genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and has shaped me both as a rider and as a person in more ways than I could count. The training is spectacular and tailored to fit the rider. The horse I now own was the horse I took my first lesson on, and we have become quite a pair. All the lesson horses here are fantastic and fun to work with. The boarders and riders are all friendly and inviting. This barn is truly a family. The people support each other and care about each other. There is no competitive atmosphere and only kind words to go around. I owe so much of who I am and what I have to this barn. Riding at Paris Farms changed my life and I have recommended this barn to numerous friends. Never want to board anywhere else.
I decided to get back into horseback riding about 8 years ago and started taking lessons with Kathy. I had ridden as a kid but never had much formal training. I found Kathy to be patient but thorough and I feel that I've learned a great deal from her. My husband, who had never ridden before, starting taking lessons about 3 1/2 years ago and we now often ride together. Last year, I made the big jump and got my very first horse (now boarded at Meadowsweet) Kathy went with me to help pick him out. Meadowsweet has many fun, low pressure activities and events for both students and boarders. A few examples are: clinics, off site trips, pony camp, and organized trail rides. Meadowsweet is located next to Chain O' Lakes and 8 miles of equestrian trails. Some of our lessons are working trail rides to the park. Kathy teaches lots of kids to ride but don't think that, because you're an adult, you can't take lessons!
I have been looking for a stable to ride at for a long time and this was truly my first GREAT experience! Awesome place and awesome people.
Louise was my instructor for many years, and was really a great and patient teacher! I would recommend her to anyone wanting to start horse back riding or get back into it.

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!

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.

"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.
