    The instructors understand each student as individuals, and lessons are tailored to allow riders to progress at a pace that makes sense for them and their goals. The horses are healthy and well-mannered, and are paired with riders in a compatible way. As an adult beginner, I've learned so much in my lessons at Total Equestrian Experience and am thrilled to have found them.

    As a senior citizen, they've provided me a safe and enjoyable opportunity to go back to riding.

    They take your needs and goals when placing a student into a class. They offer individual/private lessons, group lessons, as well as shows, fun hangout days and summer camp!!

    My son and I both take lessons at TEE. The instructors are great at pinpointing what students of all ages and experience levels need to improve their riding skills. Plus, TEE is like a big family... My son and I love being a part of it!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start all students learning from the ground up. At TEE each rider learns how to care and groom for their horse as well as place the equipment on the horse. In this way riders form a personal bond with the horse they are going to ride. 

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

Gayle 0apwrno is an American Riding  Instructor Association Certified Instructor and supervises all lessons given at TEE. Each instructor takes lessons themselves on an ongoing basis to assure that they stay sharp in their learning and teaching skills. Many of our instructors compete as well!

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching 30 years ago as my newly adopted daughter wanted to ride. I realized leading her around that my passion was to share these amzaing experiences with as many people as possible. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Students come to TEE with absolutely no knowlede od horses but with big dreams. We also have returning riders later in life, and kids with a passion!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The best quote we overheard a ride say was "This ranch is my happy place!"

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please be sure you are getting the entire package including racking up and riding. It is so important to create that bond. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals? (showing, just for fun, evenrual ownership)

Do you have any physical limitations? (aches and pains, knee, hip, or back issues, former heals trauma)

Do you have any emotional limitations? (fears, anxiety)

Do you require helmets? (answer should be Yes for every ride!)
