Haverhill farms is great! My 7 daughter had expressed interest in riding and my 4 year old son wanted to try as well. He has some sensory issues, so we thought riding would be good for him. After calling around, Haverhill was the best choice; not only were they in a great location, but very flexible with riding options; days and times. Tara was very responsive to all my questions prior to our lesson and when we arrived to he farm everyone was very friendly. We were told to walk around and explore the farm and the kids loved seeing all the horses. When it was time for the lesson to begin, we were greeted by Alex and the kids were immediately into what she was saying. She explained everything to them at their level and the kids had a great first impression. They loved getting their pony’s, walking them, brushing them, and learning how to get the saddle on. They then got to ride; starting with the basics and learning how to use the reigns. We left with My daughter asking when we can go back and ride “sassy” again! Highly recommend this place!

My daughter-in-law was thrilled with her first riding lesson and is looking forward to the next two (her Christmas present from us was three lessons). She said everything was wonderful and she loved working with the instructor. Thank you!

    I've been taking riding lessons with CTC Dressage for almost 5 years. The owner, Chrissy, is so knowledgeable & makes every lesson fun! She has an amazing ability to read her clients & figure out what motivates each one. Team CTC has grown over the 5 years I've been part of it. Chrissy has made her clients into an awesome team! Everyone is so supportive of each other. I HIGHLY recommend CTC Dressage!!

    I started riding at BRF and working with Barbra just recently after many years out of the saddle. I had taken 20 yrs off to pursue my career, get married, have children etc. I found my confidence was a bit shaken and I was hesitant about starting over, but I am really passionate about riding and wanted to advance my skills in dressage. Barb is a true professional and the real deal. She has spent the past few months working with me to bring me "back to the basics" and meeting me at my level. We are now working to build on my skills and she's introducing new techniques. She's meticulous and will point out subtle changes that make you go "oh yeah now I get it' unlike many trainers I've worked with in the past. I love her attention to detail and her calm demeanor. You just know you are in good hands with Barbra!

      I have taken lessons from Jan and boarded horses at her facilities for about 16 years. I stay because the lessons are great and the care the horses receive is superb. Stalls are cleaned properly, they get ALOT of good quality hay; they are pampered and and happy. Her indoor arena is big, with excellent footing. There is an outdoor sand arena as well as hay fields to ride around in. For me, the location is also important. It is close enough to town that I can get out there often. Also, the other riders and horse owners there are friendly...and Jan is great!

        Been leasing with the people here for a couple of years now. Management is open, approachable, knowledgeable and professional. This barn has provided an excellent avenue to my teenage daughter for improving horsemanship, learning and implementing natural training methods and spending lots of time learning all the care that these animals require. More like extended family than just a boarding/training facility. Lessons on sound horses are excellent for the beginner rider, and leasing offers options for those with more experience who can ride without a trainer present which really increases rider performance and ability. I can't say enough about this barn. Come see for yourself! :)

        About

        It is very difficult to find a classical instructor in Michigan. I studied in Maryland with Kathleen Harjess and Erik Herbermann. As competition dressage gains popularity, so do training shortcuts that are supposed to help the horse and rider get further faster but instead can cause serious damage to the horse and are not applicable in other contexts. Most instructors teach you how to ride their horses for their discipline. This can still be a wonderful experience for many students and enables them to build confidence- but it is not always safe for the rider and is infrequently safe for the horse's long-term health. I train riders to communicate to the horse and then allow the horse to respond in such a way that it encourages the horses to give a different level of performance to their riders. The horses become willing participants and even the crankiest old horse when ridden correctly will find a bounce in his step that was never there before.

        About

        About

        I teach beginners from English lessons to advanced jumping and cross country. I specialize in problem and young horses. I ride dressage, which is the basis of all riding. I have also ridden western dressage and have some formal training in it. I have trained under Dorothy Mueller for the last 11 years and under Debbie Pace as a young teen. I started jumping at 7 and ride 7 days a week. I am soft spoken and very quiet when I ride as well. I enjoy a challenge, as most horses who misbehave do so because of poor training. I take my time and give the horse and rider an understanding of what we are working for.
