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!

    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 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!

      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.
