  • Heart of Riding, LLC

    (5 reviews)

    I believe that horses, as beautiful, powerful, intelligent creatures, deserve the best their riders can offer. I also believe that most riders are not given the tools to understand how or why they need to improve. My goal is to make the How and Why of *good* riding available to ANYONE who wants it. If you have ever listened to your instructor and thought to yourself "I wonder what that means?", "How am I supposed to do that?" or "I'm trying but I just can't seem to do it, there must be something wrong with my horse" ... it might be time for a change. Or, if you have wanted to try riding but don't want to go to one of those places where you get lumped into a big class with a different instructor every month or you get tossed up on a horse without much forethought? ... I'm the opposite of that. Consider trying something new that just might be what you've been missing all this time!

  • White Oak Stables

    (2 reviews)

    White Oak Stables has lessons for people of all ages, riding levels and abilities on our friendly horses and ponies. In addition to regular riding lessons we specialize in shy/fearful tweens and teens, adult beginners, and plus sized riders. Instruction is provided in the barn, clubhouse or in our all weather arena. Children must be 6 or older to join the lesson program and 4 or older for a pony ride. Children under 13 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times and minors who are not participating in lessons may not be left unattended. Please review our price list for more information. * What's Available Watch And Learn - free for prospective students, boarders and guests Lesson Packages: traditional training for hunter/jumper or dressage * Specialized Lesson Groups We take pride in creating a personalized lesson program for these special groups or riders. There's no reason to feel out of place, afraid, or embarrassed about your riding skill level or the personal challenges you're trying to overcome and goals you'd like to reach. * Shy/Fearful Riders Are you shy, anxious or fearful? Our motivation lessons are perfect for anyone who feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders or seem to struggle with some of the basic challenges of stress in everyday life. Horses are a wonderful therapeutic outlet to help people of all ages find their way, become more assertive, and break out of their shell. Motivation lessons focuses on horsemanship, horse care and group activities in order to teach responsibility, enhance communication skills and encourage riders to face and overcome their fears. * Plus Sized Riders Who needs a gym when you have a horse? Okay. I guess you could visit the gym too but horses are so much more fun! Our plus sized riding lessons can accommodate riders up to 280lbs. We start off slow and increase the physical difficulty of your lessons as you get back into shape. * Adult Beginners If you're an adult and you've always wanted to ride it can be difficult to find riding facilities that meet your needs. Whether your ultimate goal is to go to a show, have a trail ride, get some exercises, or just to have fun with a group of other adult riders this lesson program is perfect for you. Lessons are tailored to your needs, goals and physical abilities and/or limitations. Do as much or as little as you're comfortable with in a safe, nurturing and social environment where there are no judgements or pressures to compete. * Local Shows White Oak Stables will take students to local shows if they wish to compete. Show classes entered will depend on the rider's skill level and horse availability. If you are interested in showing please check our show schedule and talk to your instructor to reserve a spot. * What To Expect Students arrive at the barn and find their horse assignment on the white board. They groom and tack up their lesson horse. When the horse is ready they take it out to the arena. Beginner lessons wait for the instructor to arrive before mounting, intermediate lessons mount and walk their horses to warm up while advanced lessons mount and walk and trot their horses to warm up. The lesson begins when the instructor arrives. Lessons begin with an exercises session, followed by the main lesson, and finish with a cool down period. The instructor encourages students to reflect critically and adjusts the lesson to suit the needs of each individual. Students spend at least 45 minutes in the saddle. When the lesson is over students dismount and walk their horses back to the barn to untack and give them a bath if needed. When the horses are taken care of students clean their tack and put it away, give their lesson horse a treat, then grab a drink on the way out if they're thirsty. * Cancellations Rides are canceled if there is heavy rain, lightning, icy conditions, snow, high winds, temperatures are below 40 degrees, above 90 degrees or if the weather makes getting to the stables impossible. If we are unable to ride in the arena due to poor footing or weather conditions we will have alternative learning/educational and activities in the barn or loft clubhouse.

I am a 220 Hr KRI internationally certified kundalini yoga teacher who loves to share this sacred science and practice with those who are seeking peace of mind, a new experience or an in depth class filled with yogic knowledge.

I have been riding horses for pleasure for over 15 years and primarily teach English lessons (Hunter and Equitation). I used to ride for the University of South Florida equestrian team and I love working with kids because riding helps to build confidence, trust and focus (amongst many other excellent character traits).

  1. #1 Eliezer Stable

    Linda D.

    I brought Amber to novice 7 year old girls with pretty much no experience riding horses. She gave them a 30 minute lesson including grooming of the horse, how to feed them, mount the horse, use the reins to direct the horse around cones and barrels. Once they were comfortable in the rink, she took them on a 30 minute trail ride. It was a memorable experience for both girls. I would highly recommend Amber.

I have ridden occasionally for many years, but have never had any formal training. I'm hoping to gain some basic knowledge in horse handling, and to learn how to ride better at the different paces. Essentially, I want to become a better trail rider. I'd like to get quotes on having lessons once or twice a week for about 3 months.
