I am a one-man show running a non-profit horse riding center for people with special needs. I conduct trail rides or individual lessons, and everyone is having fun. The riding is geared towards maximizing the individual's capabilities. Please contact me for referrals. I conduct trail rides for the able bodied, and once I get to know someone, I'm willing to act as a "rent a horse" where the riders can go off on their own. I have trails through my own woods, and all the horses are very gentle.

I have been riding with Beth for about 6 months. She is fantastic. She challenges me and my horse during our lessons and has helped us to become a better team. Beth knows what her students and their equine partners need. She has a keen eye and always keeps it interesting. I highly recommend her for both advanced riders as well as beginners! Adults and children too! So happy I found her.
I am brand-new to the Austin area. I'm looking to make connections in the equine world and begin teaching lessons here in Texas. I moved from New Jersey, where I taught horseback riding at Fairview Lake YMCA Camp for 2 years, competed in dozens of hunter/jumper and cross-country competitions and been around horses since I could walk. Sadly, I had to leave my horse behind in New Jersey due to his blindness. I didn't want to put him through the stress, and so I do require that my students have a horse to ride; however, I am completely willing to travel to you. I teach all levels, from beginner to advanced. With beginners, I always start with horse care, proper horse safety, and of course, proper riding techniques. Throughout teaching, I also include parts of the horse, colors, markings, and other horse knowledge. For intermediate and advanced riders, I teach proper hunter/jumper etiquette for English riders as well as reigning, barrel racing, and other rodeo sports for Western riders. Since I am still new to Austin, I don't know the competitions around here, and so I won't be able to bring you to competitions right off the bat myself, but I would definitely like to enter the competition world in the future.
I've been taking lessons from Gretchen for almost a year. She is a great teacher and I have learned a lot. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn about riding horses or taking care of horses.

I am a Certified Veterinary Assistant that has multiple years experience working with a wide variety of small & large animals.
I personally have worked alongside and taken lessons from Ashlyn and I have loved both immensely. Growing up I thought I knew a lot about horses due to family owning them and going to horseback camp as a child but in the 3 months I spent with Ashlyn I learned so much more than I ever thought possible. I am a huge fan of Ashlyn's teaching style and her demeanor towards the horses. She is always kind but assertive so that the rider and the horse feels comfortable as opposed to being unnecessarily aggressive towards them. When Ashlyn give you direction she explains it in a way that is easy to understand and not at all demeaning. She is very aware of everyones energy within lessons and is able to make sure all involved feel comfortable and confident. She allows you to decide how to handle challenges with moderate intervention in order to grow your horsemanship and your bond to the horse you are riding yet always stays close by to keep you comfortable in the case that you feel the situation is out of your level of expertise. Ashlyn's lessons offer a wide variety of skills and training and a better understanding of what it means to have good horsemanship. She is also full of very interesting information she is always willing to share that keeps you learning after years of riding experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Ashlyn's lessons to individuals of all skill levels. She truly makes it an enjoyable experience you cannot wait to get back to.
I wanted to try riding on an English saddle, since my only experience riding was on western (cowboy) saddle. The experience I had was just the right balance of instruction and freedom to relax and spend time with the horses. I left my lesson feeling relaxed and comfortable with knowing I could handle an English riding saddle. Two days later the realization hits you that horse back riding is most assuredly exercise :-)
The facility is very clean. We care for everyone's horse as if they were our own. Family atmosphere and outstanding customer service
