We signed my 5 year old daughter up for horseback riding lessons with Ms. Debbie at Bittersweet Acres and she loves it! Ms. Debbie is so patient and works great with my daughter and her horse is so sweet and great with kids too! When signing her up, I was excited that she would be able to ride and enjoy the company of horses but Ms. Debbie has given her so much more. She not only has taught her how to ride and direct the horse on her own, she is constantly sharing her extensive knowledge of horses from taking care of them, to what they like/dislike, and she tells us lots of “fun facts” too! She does a great job working at my daughter’s pace and taking her to the next level when she feels she’s ready. She has games she plays with the kids while riding that teaches them horse riding skills, and they think they are just having fun playing the games! It is so obvious how much Ms. Debbie loves her horses and she loves to share that with the kids. I would recommend Bittersweet Acres to anyone who is interested in riding and learning about horses. It’s a great experience!
Kat is very talented with riding and fun to watch, but even more importantly to me, she built my daughter's confidence in riding and in all ares of life. Great teacher. Great leader. Great person! The only reason she's not teaching my daughter now is that we moved 4 states away. Miss her!

Improve your riding and horse knowledge. Enjoy. We are a riding school and a horse training facility; and we also hold camps for horse care and management and special holiday camps for children with seasonal themes. All our riding horses and ponies have a home for life. They live outside, as much as possible, and wear blankets if they need. The horses are always up to date with vaccinations; they have their teeth checked at the same time as they receive their shots. Feet are trimmed by a very experienced farrier who takes ongoing training. Our trainers are carefully chosen for their knowledge and patience. Paramount is our horses comfort and the riders safety. Everyone, horses, dogs, and people, are treated with the respect they deserve. We believe in give and take. Give respect, and you will earn respect. The horses and ponies are treated with great care, and in return, they are expected to work carefully with their riders. They are all rewarded with kindness and consideration when they do well. Horses and ponies are put to work if they have energy to be difficult.
I teach horseback riding lessons in Western and English, both saddle seat and hunt seat. I also teach cross country/show jumping from beginner to experienced, including showing horses and the care needed to be a responsible horse owner. I also teach volleyball lessons from beginner to advanced.
