- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a pretty basic pricing system: All Lessons are Private Lessons Ride for an Hour with Instructor - $50 Ride for a Half an Hour with Instructor - $30 Monthly Programs - Student Rides Once a Week: Ride Each Week - Private Lesson - Hour - $216 per Month Ride Each Week - Private Lesson - Half an Hour - $108 per Month
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When you have expressed interest in checking out our barn, we will ALWAYS offer you a FREE Introductory Lesson. This lesson is perfect for getting to know each other a little better, it can help ease nerves and it of course is perfect to get to know the barn a little bit. We cover the safety around our horses, grooming, saddling, bridling, leading, we go over mounting and ride for about 15 minutes. During our ride, we learn about how we will communicate with the horse, the instructor, and how to use the arena. We end with the dismounting, and then we conclude with the unsaddling, brief grooming, and placing the horse back in the stall. Overall the Introductory experience lasts around 45 Minutes.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been riding horses since I was 9 years old - I started riding as an English only student learning Dressage. I became interested in Western Riding after we purchased our second horse, I began taking Reining lessons at this time. I was ready to get a real show horse and get started with that - and I ended up falling in love with a Paint Horse named Oreo. I started showing, and would spend my days at the show watching and learning from all of my fellow competitors, I would do all the care and prep for me and my horse at all the shows, and ended up working my way up from not placing, to becoming an experienced showman. I am most proud of the fact that I set my goal to earn the Ohio Paint Horse Open High Point Mare Trophy Buckle - and I did, against professional trainers and lifetime exhibitors. I ride every event offered at most stock type shows, and my passion is teaching others what I have learned over the years. I try to make each student into the best rider they can become, one that is balanced and in-tune with the horse they are riding. I make sure to ask a lot of questions, and encourage students to answer those questions - this way you can truly understand the reasoning behind doing certain things with your horse. I try to make sure each student can learn by sometimes changing the way I express methods - I use a combination of phrases, visualization techniques, rhythm control techniques, and sometimes I will show students how to do something in person. I try to make each ride as positive as possible, and I aim for my students to become self-correcting riders that can problem solve safely while maintaining composure.
