    Sam is great instructor. She has a lot of experience working with different horses and all level riders. Sam has always explained things to me clearly and helped me understand the concept of the lesson. She runs a great barn and everything is clean,professional and organized. I highly recommend taking lessons with her.

    There is a very welcoming vibe at New Castle. Samantha is very personable and of course her knowledge and experience are obvious when she is instructing a rider. She matches horse to rider and encourages her students in a very positive, empowering manner so that you really feel like you had a good lesson and are improving within your abilities.

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

Whenever we have a new student arrive to our farm we start from the ground up. We go over proper grooming of our animals and also we learn how to properly tack up our horses. The first lesson is always an assessment to see where the rider is and what we can work on to achieve the goals of each person.

How did you get started teaching?

I have been teaching for as long as i can remember, i started off working riding camps at the age of 12, as i grew as an equestrian i was give different opportunities to teach. I really got still teaching horse show clients when i was working for a barn down in Wellington. I would teach their clients both at home and at horse shows. I taught at barns for over 10 years before starting my own program.

What types of students have you worked with?

We work woth all students at all different levels. Typically our age group is 7 years old and up. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our last horse show we attended was central Florida hunter jumper association in Tampa FL.  We typically try to attend horse shows about one to two times a month. Depending on our client base we either attend schooling shows or A rated shows.
