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.

I have been leasing and taking lessons at Paris Farms for about four years after leaving Freedom woods. I couldn't be more happy. Talie cares about each one of her clients like family and the barn really becomes a second home. She works hard to make sure that all of her students are sucessful and confident in their riding skills, she puts them first and takes care of us.

Paris Farms is an excellent facility. My daughter began her training and riding at the age of 8.. Talie has been an amazing instructor for the past 10 years. My daughter has become an accomplished equestrian rider. She also has learned exceptional ground and training techniques for young horses. The grounds are filled with beautiful garden flowers and trees.

I decided to get back into horseback riding about 8 years ago and started taking lessons with Kathy. I had ridden as a kid but never had much formal training. I found Kathy to be patient but thorough and I feel that I've learned a great deal from her. My husband, who had never ridden before, starting taking lessons about 3 1/2 years ago and we now often ride together. Last year, I made the big jump and got my very first horse (now boarded at Meadowsweet) Kathy went with me to help pick him out. Meadowsweet has many fun, low pressure activities and events for both students and boarders. A few examples are: clinics, off site trips, pony camp, and organized trail rides. Meadowsweet is located next to Chain O' Lakes and 8 miles of equestrian trails. Some of our lessons are working trail rides to the park. Kathy teaches lots of kids to ride but don't think that, because you're an adult, you can't take lessons!

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!

Riding Lessons, Carolyn’s skills are outstanding. She listens carefully to what you want out of your lesson and will assist you on reaching that goal. She is always there to encourage and teach. Teaching and sharing the knowledge she has of horses is something she loves to do. The passion she has for the animals and the humans riding them is exceptional. She has been teaching, showing, and sharing her love of horses for over 35 years.

Louise has been my favorite trainer hands down! She teaches you to ride effectively and develop a good seat with fundamentals. She is very open to teaching you concepts in a way you personally learn best. She's a very calm and knowledgeable instructor and takes time in lessons to specify what to work on alone in order to make progress. I've made a lot of progress with her and look forward to more to come!

I truly enjoy taking lessons from Louise! She is really helpful while making me laugh at the same time. I ride a really stubborn pony and she really helps me get through to him.

As a rider that's been in and out of the horse scene for the last 12+ years, I wanted a refresher on a few things, and Jen was the answer. As an instructor, she is straight to the point, makes you work to achieve your goals, is very patient, and most importantly, has excellent communication skills. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or a seasoned rider looking to improve on things (we all need it at times), she's the ticket. Overall great teacher, horses that you can actually learn on, and a well run business. Highly recommended! Pat

Jen has been giving my daughter private lessons for the last 2 years. Having grown up learning to ride with nose-to-tail-factory style lessons on exhausted horses I wanted something more for my daughter. Jen is a down to earth, amazingly intuitive rider and teacher. Her horses are calm, safe, curious, and follow her around like dogs. Every lesson is different and my daughter loves every minute. I love seeing her progress her skills safely whilst learning respect for these great animals.

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!

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've ridden with Kris for 20 years! She taught me all I know about jumping and horse showing. She's great with matching riders with horses, whether they're buying their own, leasing, or just riding for fun. MHF is my home away from home!

About

"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.
