About

We specializing in the all-around horse. Riding lessons, training, showing, sales -- Western and English pleasure, horsemanship, showmanship, and trail. Mikell Farm specializes in instruction that is very positive and fun experience! Our goal is to take a horse and a rider and mold them into a team that works together. We offer instruction in both Western and English (flat). We cater to both the pleasure rider who wants to improve his/her skills or the show rider that wants to progress in competition. We strongly believe that the early years in horsemanship are the most important. We strive to offer the best lesson horses in the area (most are proven show horses) and keep our rates competitive, so that riders have the opportunity to start their riding careers on the right foot. We largely cater to 4-H and open-show riders ages 6 and up. Over the years, we have had students also compete at breed shows and rated shows, including zone finals.

About

I've known Susan for years and had often volunteered at the stables so I was familiar with their horseback riding program. When my daughter got older and wanted to take lessons, I knew of only one place I could trust - Camp Hebron. I was confident Susan would keep her safe and also start her out riding correctly. Now my daughter is often complimented on her riding skills. We drove up from Harrisburg so she could take lessons in Halifax. It's worth the drive!

About

This lady is an amazing horse person. Ellen not only can read the horse she knows what the owner needs. Ellen has helped me with my confidence in riding and trusting my new horse. I board my horse at Kings View because I know she will be getting the best personal care she could. I never worry about her being out in bad weather she always has plenty of hay and water, Ellen changed blankets all winter I never had to ask her to do anything, Ellen even fly sprays her and puts swat in her ears. Ellen is always involved in my horses care from the farrier to the chiropractor. Kings View Acres is the most peaceful family oriented barn I have ever been to. Having Abby here has been such a positive experience for us both. I can not thin k of anything Ellen could do to improve Abby's life.

About

Hi. My name is Julia, and I have been riding horses for over 10 years. I am only a high school student, but please don't let my age concern you. Horses are my life, and I have taught lessons and trained horses before. Lessons: For lessons, I charge only $5 per lesson for beginners and $10 for intermediate students. I can provide a horse/pony if needed, but it will be for $20 more. If you have your own, I will travel up to 25 miles. I have competed in everything, from hunter/jumper to gaming. I have both English and Western tacks that students may use. If you are riding for the first time, I have the supplies you need to get you started. Training: For training, the price will depend on the situation. I can come to you to train (up to 25 miles), or if you live farther away, I can recommend local places to board the horse at a low cost, and I will train the horse from that facility. I have trained every type of horse, from off-the-track thoroughbreds to those rescued from auctions. I also have experience in breaking a foal to ride. I can train anything Western, but only English flatwork. I can no longer jump due to a knee injury. I can also train to fix bad habits, such as counter-bending and spooking. I can even fix small issues, such as trailer issues. My Philosophy: * Lessons: I teach with safety as a first priority. I aim to build trust and a true bond between the horse and the rider. I work on technique and perfecting one thing before advancing to another. I aim to make lessons fun. If you wish to compete, I can train you for that, but if you just want to ride for fun, there is no pressure. * Training: I always train with a goal in mind. If I start something, I will finish it, if at all possible. I train with kind methods. I don't believe in violence. My training style is similar to that of the legendary Monty Roberts. I don't like to use force. I take small steps to reach a goal. The first thing I will do with any horse I train is "Join-Up". It is a technique, created by Monty Roberts, that will establish respect between the horse and the rider. Only after a successful "Join-Up" will I begin to work towards a training goal.

Details
I am 23 years old and I consistently rode hunters from age 3-15. I had to stop due to illness and academics but I have ridden sporadically in the previous years since I stopped riding consistently. I rode hunters competitively in local shows ranging from Out of Reach Farms to the Devon Classic. I am interested in taking lessons a few times per week and I am interested in both hunters and jumpers training. I am also completely open to competing again depending on how things go but I would still be happy riding just for pleasure. I miss horses and riding and I would absolutely love to begin taking lessons consistently again.
