Equistar Equestrian Services offers a comprehensive equestrian program to all students, beginner to advanced. Miss Abigail's philosophy aims to take this generation back to classical principles and fundamental horsemanship. Students will learn grooming, nutrition, general care, and thorough riding skill that goes beyond the "kick, pull, ride". Students will learn how to understand their horse, care for their horse, groom, tack up, and much more!
I personally love seeing a student form a bond of trust. That even when they are nervous, they trust their horse to take care of them. With advanced students, it's that moment of harmony, where the ride suddenly becomes a thought, not an action. In either case, the relationship is the most important factor.
Abby is as great for the horse as she is for you. She has a wealth of knowledge and a true love for her work. She’s improved me as an equestrian immensely and she understands and values my horse and what his needs are for us to become a team. She’s a great trainer, teacher, and equestrian.
I highly recommend Abby! Since starting with Abby, my daughter has become more confident not only as a rider but also with understanding horses. Abby teaches her how to communicate and build trust with the horse she is riding, which has really improved her skills. Abby is a caring and skilled instructor and rider and really goes above and beyond for her students.
The first lesson consists of an evaluation of the rider's personality and skill level to match the horse. Abigail assists in the process of catching, grooming, tacking, and preparing the horse with the student each lesson until they are able to do so independently and correctly. It is recommended that beginners take 2 lessons weekly to accelerate the process of learning and comprehension.
Abigail has 18+ years experience teaching a variety of students. She has worked along side many professionals to culminate a plethora of knowledge and experience in the equine industry.

Abigail began teaching when she was 18 years old, helping novice horse owners learn how to be fundamentally correct.
Abigail has taught students from total beginners to advanced and as young as 4 years old to 65 years old.
Abigail is fond of all her students and simply can't single one out but when her students "click" with a difficult concept, it is victory. She loves to see the light bulb turn on for a young rider that struggles with coordination or an emotionally withdrawn student blossoms through their relationship with the horse.
My advice is to find someone that can break down the fundamentals, explain complex concepts, and help you become the best that you can be.
1. Can I afford to commit to this?
2. What measures are taken to increase my safety?
3. What equipment do I need?
