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

We set up your first lesson to gage where your at. We discuss your goals and what you would like to get out of our service. Then we make a game plan and get it done!

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

Our head trainer, Matthew Walsh, has a lifetime of experience working with horses.

Growing up, Matthew spent time competing on the hunter-jumper and three-day eventing junior circuits under his mentor, Jane Shaw. As he gained experience, he wanted to share his knowledge and began working at Jane's barn, teaching camp classes and lessons, and helping work with "problem" horses. He always has had a gift with animals, and training came very naturally to him. All animals, not just horses, respond naturally to Matthew and always want to please him. His training has stretched to dogs and birds of prey, but his passion is horses.

Matthew's focus these days is on developing safe and sound equines for all disciplines. He bases his training philosophy on natural horsemanship techniques, believing that it is best to work patiently with horses to ensure that what he teaches them "sticks." He aims to keep his lessons with riders engaging and also fun, because if riding isn't enjoyable for horse AND rider, it's not worth doing.
