My daughter has been riding at Highland ridge 9 years.....Sarah has a gift working with riders. Most importantly, we are a family there. When you walk in the barn you’re met with a friendly “hi” and whatever is stressing you melts away. I highly recommend!
From the property to the people to the horses themselves, Paris Farms is high quality. The owner and head trainer is one of the most professional and genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and has shaped me both as a rider and as a person in more ways than I could count. The training is spectacular and tailored to fit the rider. The horse I now own was the horse I took my first lesson on, and we have become quite a pair. All the lesson horses here are fantastic and fun to work with. The boarders and riders are all friendly and inviting. This barn is truly a family. The people support each other and care about each other. There is no competitive atmosphere and only kind words to go around. I owe so much of who I am and what I have to this barn. Riding at Paris Farms changed my life and I have recommended this barn to numerous friends. Never want to board anywhere else.
Kathy provides horseback riding lessons for my daughter. She is a great teacher and really shares her love of horses with all the students. I like how much time my daughter gets to spend with the animals and how she has learned the responsibility of taking care of her horse. The trail rides are so fun! Also, Kathy was able to find a small group for my daughter to be a part of - this makes the lesson fun for her and more cost effective for me!!
I posted on Thumbtack on Friday. Bridget replied immediately. By the next day we drove out to meet her for a private lesson for our 4 1/2 year old horse enthusiast daughter. Bridget, her husband Neil, and her son Patrick (as well as Drip, the perfect gentleman pony) were absolutely amazing!!! We honestly couldn't have asked for a better first experience for our little one! We will definitely be continuing lessons with Bridget!
Today I had my first lesson. It was an experience of a lifetime. Carolyn was amazing her attention to detail you know your in safe professional hands.I enjoyed the whole experience,everything was hands on from start to finish ,Everyone was friendly and as a beginner I felt comfortable and welcomed. I look forward to learning from the best and learning a new animal language and to know how to properly ride a horse.
Louise was my instructor for many years, and was really a great and patient teacher! I would recommend her to anyone wanting to start horse back riding or get back into it.
Jen brings a vast amount of horsemanship, teaching capability, and spirit to every lesson. She not only teaches you riding skills, but helps you to understand the horse. She is very passionate about her trade and is a lot of fun to ride with and be taught by!
Nancy is a great instructor and is very flexible with scheduling riding lessons. I would recommend her to anyone!!!
Market Hill Farm is a wonderful facility with outstanding horses and a fantastic instructor; Kris Yankula. Her experience and training has helped me develop my riding and jumping to a competitive level. I've also had the pleasure of boarding horses with her for over a year. I couldn't recommend a better farm for riders of any level!
I was a young rider who stopped when thrown from an 18 hand horse....that said, I was nervous to find the right fit getting "back in the saddle"! I explored many websites in amd near the Chicago and northern suburbs looking for a stable that would not only be considerate of my history of a scary tumble, but also be assertive in helping me learn how to be a better rider. I used Thumb tack and almost immediately got a response from Katy @ McGrath. She was professional, poised, amd passionate about taking a customized approach to be regaining my level of comfort. I was blown away to see at my first lesson how clean and vast the arenas were, and that Ken himself was there to meet me and assist in my setup. A few lessons in I'm already feeling comfortable enough to be off the lunge for the majority of the hour, amd Katy couldn't be more patient and knowledgeable as to how my adjustments as we transition will build my basics....and hopefully get to competition or show level!!! I highly recommend Katy and McGrath Stables for anyone looking for a personalized approach and warm environment.
What can I say about Cassie that could actually express how wonderful she is?? First of all, my husband surprised me with a riding lesson for my 30th birthday. I am Now 33 and own a horse at Cassie's barn. That can probably tell you how amazing she is. She really genuinely cares about her riders, she loves to see people happy, she is generous and fun. Take all these qualities that make her a good person and then put them into a trainer who has such unbelievable talent. She has a way teaching that is so effective. I could go on and on, but one lesson with her and you will see!!
We have a quiet, drama-free barn in a country setting. It is easy to get to. You will have lots of personal attention from the instructors.

"Quality in Performance, Dedication, Achievement, and Excellence" -- These are the tenets of Christopher K. Taylor's riding and training philosophy that resulted from his studies with some of the world's most prominent American and European dressage experts. Chris is passionately committed to classical training, always striving for lightness, balance and harmony with a unique instructional style for both the horse and the rider. He asks a little at a time and praises often. The result has been happy, highly motivated horses and riders who can focus, as partners, on learning their art. Chris stresses "basics, basics, basics" and small incremental steps. He has observed that when horses derail in dressage, even at the highest levels, it is usually because the basic foundation has been ignored. He strongly believes that regardless of the discipline, any horse and rider will reap the benefits from dressage. This philosophy has proven its value for both Chris and his students. Chris has competed internationally at the FEI Grand Prix levels, has been FEI Champion in Prix St. Georges, and was selected to represent Bermuda at the 1999 Pan American Games. Lessons are offered from beginner through FEI. Chris also has regularly scheduled buying trips to Europe which clients can attend. All that is needed is a passport and a plane ticket. Lodging and transportation are provided.
