    Great school horses and facility. You learn to get the horse ready, you will feel secure and learn to ride in an easy safe environment. Patient and comprehensive but really fun.

FAQs


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

New riders spend a portion of their private lesson on the ground learning how to groom and tack up their horse/pony. The remainder of their private lesson is mounted. Riders who have previous experience can arrive early to groom and tack their horse for the lesson.


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

I have a BS in Equine Science. I am a "R" USEF Welsh judge and have judged at local, regional, and national shows in Welsh. I also am an accredited judge for the local hunter jumper shows, IEA, and IHSA shows. I am a coach for an interscholastic team (IEA) and a college team (IHSA).
