I found Kathy on Thumbtack after looking for someone would could train me not just to ride but also horsemanship and care. I have always been a bit nervous around horses, but Kathy is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. Both my boyfriend and I take Lessons and while he is a bit more experienced than I am, Kathy is able to educates us both in the same lesson, keeping everything begginer for me while at the same time providing a more intermediate lesson for him. We look forward to coming to the ranch every weekend and visiting with our lesson horses. And I've been able to start to get over my fear! I would recommend Kathy to anyone who is looking to learn more about horses.

I've ridden with Kris for 20 years! She taught me all I know about jumping and horse showing. She's great with matching riders with horses, whether they're buying their own, leasing, or just riding for fun. MHF is my home away from home!

    Jen has been giving my daughter private lessons for the last 2 years. Having grown up learning to ride with nose-to-tail-factory style lessons on exhausted horses I wanted something more for my daughter. Jen is a down to earth, amazingly intuitive rider and teacher. Her horses are calm, safe, curious, and follow her around like dogs. Every lesson is different and my daughter loves every minute. I love seeing her progress her skills safely whilst learning respect for these great animals.

    Palos Hills Riding Stables is hands down the finest stable in the area for riding instruction, boarding, training and showing on a national and local level. The stable is also literally right across the street from the area's nicest trails. If your interested in the worlds most fascinating animal the HORSE. You have found the right place.

    I was a young rider who stopped when thrown from an 18 hand horse....that said, I was nervous to find the right fit getting "back in the saddle"! I explored many websites in amd near the Chicago and northern suburbs looking for a stable that would not only be considerate of my history of a scary tumble, but also be assertive in helping me learn how to be a better rider. I used Thumb tack and almost immediately got a response from Katy @ McGrath. She was professional, poised, amd passionate about taking a customized approach to be regaining my level of comfort. I was blown away to see at my first lesson how clean and vast the arenas were, and that Ken himself was there to meet me and assist in my setup. A few lessons in I'm already feeling comfortable enough to be off the lunge for the majority of the hour, amd Katy couldn't be more patient and knowledgeable as to how my adjustments as we transition will build my basics....and hopefully get to competition or show level!!! I highly recommend Katy and McGrath Stables for anyone looking for a personalized approach and warm environment.

    I am one of the only instructors in the area to offer comprehensive instruction- students have opportunities to help on weekends in exchange for additional riding- and learn first aid, anatomy, physiology, and more!

    About

    Beth has been riding horses since she was very small. She realized from a young age that her purpose here on Earth was to help horses. She learned from various riders and trainers over the years and started training young horses under saddle when she turned 18. She then started working with horses that owners deemed unrideable and retrained them to become safe and willing partners. Now at the age of 32, she has started and retrained lots of horses of all breeds, ages, and personalities. She also have worked with horses who have had fear issues and horses with dominance issues. She has used many methods throughout the years, but what has always worked the best is listening to what the horse has to say and adjusting her methods based on the individual. Beth's proven and effective training methods and education programs for all equestrian disciplines will help produce a successful team. Whether starting a weanling to lead, training a 2-year old to have a solid foundation, or continuing with any horse to a higher level, she can help. She combines her expertise in education, horsemanship, horse behavior, communication, and specific skills to educate horses and their owners how behavior and movement affect performance and partnership between horse and rider. Beth's philosophy, education, and intuition help guide horse and rider to understand and communicate with each other. She has the ability to work with all ages from the young child with the pony to the senior rider with the trail riding companion. Whatever your discipline or your questions, she has the experience and the ability to help you achieve your goals and dreams! Whether you are considering riding lessons or thinking of training to compete in shows, trail riding or any discipline you have chosen as your goal, working with Beth can help you attain those goals and dreams that you have with your horse companion. She will advance your skills and understanding of your horse and their behavior far beyond what just practice can do. She will guide you and your horse into a "confident" working relationship through behavior modification, persistence in education and a respectful working relationship that is so important in attaining your goals.
