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!

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.

Very knowledgable, patient instructor. Teaches you all about the care and way a horse thinks, and why you should do things as a rider. I feel I will be able to ride any horse with any type of tack.

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!

    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!

      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!!

      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.
