About this pro

Founded in 2020, Celestial Riding Academy helps people discover and enjoy the celestial beauty, nature, power and wisdom of horses. Whether you aspire to be a better horseman, have dreams of being a top-level eventer, learn how to ride and care for a horse, or just want to have fun and be around horses, we can help you achieve your goals in a safe environment.

We focus on the three phases of eventing (dressage, show jumping, and cross country jumping) with an emphasis on learning a correct foundation in a safe environment. The academy offers not only regular riding lessons but also unmounted horsemanship lessons. There are several clubs which meet monthly, please inquire if interested.

    Excellent riding academy! Very organized with a comprehensive education in riding and horsemanship. Perfect barn to join if you are new to riding or showing

  • Rosanne Guy

    I started lessons with Sarah in September of last year as an adult beginner. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about horses to now six months later feeling much more comfortable with my horsemanship knowledge and I'm now getting the hang of some riding basics! Sarah is very knowledgeable, patient, considerate, and extremely devoted to her students. Anna Kay is also an amazing instructor that I see from time to time as well. I couldn't ask for a better learning experience! Thank you all for making me feel so welcome as a newbie!
