Kelly is very knowledge in the horse world. I started taking lessons with her and didnt know how to reahy a horse for a ride. After only three months with weekly lessons, I was able to comfortably obtain a horse. She would gently correct my mistakes and she always is encouraging to me and the horse. She cares about the animals and always is watching out for their health and care. I feel I was lucky to find someone so willing, knowledgeable and flexable for lessons and on going help. If anyone would want more specifics, feel free to email me.

I had mostly taken non-specialized riding lessons on horses which, while they have fabulous personalities, were not terribly well-trained beyond walk/trot/canter/"what's a half-halt?" I had learned the basics, but I was completely stuck trying to go further on horses who knew as little about what I was trying to learn as I did. Deciding to take lessons with Rebecca was the best move I could have made - she's super attentive to every detail while I'm riding, she knows exactly how to explain the biomechanics (my nemesis), and learning from a lovely horse who responds instantly to correct cues has completely changed my riding in just a few months. With the added bonus that the horses I ride on my own on other farms are much happier with me, moving more freely under saddle, and clearly getting the benefit of what I'm learning with Astoria. My confidence has sky-rocketed, and I've gone from being stuck to having a blast.

I have learned a ton through Rachel and improved a lot since I started riding with her 5 years ago. I tried 2 other teachers and enjoyed them, but still think Rachel has a better way of explaining not just what to do to make the horse move, but how you and the horse should both work together. I enjoy coming back every summer.

Easy to work with. Was able to schedule my first lesson at my convenience. The horses were great and so was the instructor! I am planning to continue weekly lessons.

We love Walders Way Equestrian Center so much we travel 80 miles each way to train at this fantastic facility. The farm has a large indoor and large outdoor filled with professional jumper jumps which we love. Jeff Walder is a wonderful trainer he truly cares about each student and we don't feel like just a number there. He developed a individual plan for us and has brought my daughter up to pony jumper level. Jeff is a dedicated coach at horse shows.The farm offers lesson horses and ponies from beginner to advanced as well. I highly recommend Walders Way for anyone to come and train whether you are a beginner or a advanced rider.

    Lauren is an awesome instructor and person! I have had several instructors over the years, but no one has even come close to her amount of patience. I have learned so much from her every lesson and she has helped me bond so well with my horse!

    About

    Growing up, my life revolved around horses. It still does! I have been riding for as long as I can remember (since I was four). I have experience in Western and dressage but mainly focus on hunter/jumper for myself. Aside from physical riding knowledge and skill, it has greatly benefited me to learn about all aspects of horses and caring for them. In teaching lessons, I have found that the more knowledge you have to offer, the more interested the client becomes in furthering his/her own understanding of the animal under them. Lessons can be customized to suit the needs of each particular rider, whether he/she be young/older, beginner/advanced, or for more therapeutic reasons, all together. In addition to teaching people how to ride, I also have pretty extensive experience when it comes to teaching the horses themselves. Reconditioning is a constant necessity. Every time you ride, you teach your horse something, whether you realize it or not. It is extremely easy for a horse to pick up bad habits overtime. By working with the horse and showing the client exercises to do on their own, general problems are easily solved. Lessons/training prices are determined by time and travel distance.
