Our barn, and the riding program I run is designed for people who are, and want to be long term dedicated equestrian riders. If you are looking for a one time ride or a trail ride I may not be the riding facility for you.

Please note... for your safety all riders will start riding on a lunge line or a lead rope. All riders will ride on a lunge line until riders can gain confidence, learn how to develop a proper seat, hands and to learn how to control of the horse, at the walk, trot and canter.

I have been riding, training and showing horses for 20 years. My goal is to provide you a safe, fun, and stress free atmosphere so you can enjoy learning how to ride and care for horses. When you take lessons you will learn how to be safe around horses, how to lead and handle horses, how to groom, tack up, how to keep a horse healthy and happy, and of course you will learn the fundamental skills of horseback riding that will make you a great rider. If you are already a rider and you would like to improve your riding skills lessons are the place to start. Riding is a great way to stay fit and is supported by weightwatchers.
