Introduction: I have been taking care of horses since the age of 10. I am a certified riding instructor,graduated from the World Renowned Morven Park International Equestrian Institute, in Leesburg Va. At Morning Mist Farm, we strive for Safety First. Horsemanship, Equine Knowledge, Fun, Lifetime Experiences and Friendships develop while learning confidence and achieving goals (goals set by students and sometimes pushed to strive for more by Miss Nancy), to reach their full potential. We have outstanding schoolmaster horses and ponies to learn all aspects of being an Equestrian..From grooming to riding, turnout, giving bathes,and everything that has to do with horses. Our emphasis is Dressage, Balance Seat with Show Jumping and Natural Horsemanship. I teach beginner thru advanced. Morning Mist has events such as our well known Bonfires and Weenie roosts, Pony parties, at our farm or your back yard. If you have a special request, just let us know...We will do our best to accommodate your needs. Our Barn is also available for Private Parties. We charge an hourly fee, will provide pony rides and hay rides if you choose. You can bring the food, entertainment and decorations, or we can do it for you. Please contact Miss Nancy for more information and pricing. ATTENTION: SPECIAL INSIGHT FOR PARENTS: Your child will readily get out of bed to spend time at our farm. They want to muck stalls, clean tack, scrub water buckets,instead of cleaning their rooms or doing chores at home. The parents know their children are in a safe place and come home exhausted, happy and feeling good that they have spent the day with horses, other children with similar interests and happy. Here at Morning Mist, we are a "working barn". We have a feeling of camaraderie, which leads to very close relationships with boarders, riders and all that travel down our lane. We take pride in professionalism, showmanship, friendship, our horses and all aspects of riding, training and top notch care of horses and people. I love that our Barn is unique in the way, that everyone loves being here, in a "Stress Free Zone", We help each other, without ever being asked, and have a great feeling of Security, in both friendships and horsemanship. When you arrive at Morning Mist Farm, You will feel the serenity and happiness that awaits everyone. Leave your worries, work, personal stress and problems behind while enjoying the peacefulness of our barn, horses, clients, students and other guests.

Morning Mist is the first barn to make me feel like I am genuinely accepted and involved. Nancy is by far the best trainer I have worked with. She not only tells you how to but shows and explains how to. When she is asked a question she doesn't make you feel like you are small. She takes everything as a lesson. I am so glad to have found a trainer and a barn that I can call family. I am so blessed. I am welcomed to come to the barn and feed the horses and learn hands on how to tend to a barn and herd as if it's my own. Nancy teaches balance seat first and has shown me that you can be one with the horse and feel the movements and the bond. As I was a hunter jumper previous I am used to one frame of posture and intensity but she has taught me how to feel the horse and be a rider not a passenger. I could go on and on about the amazing lessons I have been taught and look forward to more to come! Thanks Nancy😃

Nancy Conahan and Tumbtack were great. She very promptly responded to my request to find riding lessons at a local barn. All of my questions were answered and Nancy was very positive and encouraging as I am an older rider. I look forward to working with her when the weather warms up.

My daughter took riding lessons from Nancy for about 7 years and loved it! She genuinely cares about horses and kids and did a great job teaching riding technique and how to care for the horses; from head to hoof. She made the lessons lots of fun!

Riding at Morning Mist was awesome. I took lessons with Nancy for about a year and enjoyed every minute of it. The farm is nice and maintained well. She doesn't just teach how to ride, but also grooming and care for the horses. Her horses and ponies are all very well trained and a joy to work with. This was my first experience learning to ride and Nancy took her time and was very patient with me. She taught and coached me when needed and figured out that at some points I have to be given time to learn on my own. Overall this was a very rewarding experience and I would recommend Morning Mist Farm and Nancy to anyone interested in learning english riding from beginner to advanced.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attended Morven Park International Equestrian Institute and became a certified riding instructor in 1982.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I loved horses from the day a could say "I want a pony, please, for Christmas." I started lessons when I was 5 years old. When I was 12 going on my 13th Birthday...My Dad asked me how much it would cost to build me a barn and buy me a horse. I had the answer within 48 hours. I was already addicted to horses and I was lucky to have my Mom and Dad supportive of my interest.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I specialize in Beginner Adults, that want to learn to ride in a quiet, personalized environment. I also have a great Young Riders Program, for beginners thru advanced riding. Everyone learns Safety and Fun. Starting from the ground up, meaning grooming, leading, tacking up, riding and aftercare. My program teaches all how to take care of their own horse, when they are lucky enough to have a horse of their own.
