Tom's instruction is something you will need if you want to bring your riding to the next level!! Unlike other ordinary instructors who often are fixated in superficial forms, Tom can really address the fundamental element of what is important for each riders at a certain stage.
The quality of the lessons was outstanding Tom is truly a extremely gifted instructor Great if you want to do purely dressage or the sport of eventing Safe no drama supportive environment Highly recommend
My daughter has been training at Flatlands for 5 years. Tom is by far the best trainer she has worked with. The change in her riding and horsemanship is immeasurable. She started out a timid rider afraid to canter to competing successfully in USEA events. The thing I appreciate most about Tom as a trainer is he teaches each rider to do the best with what they have. My daughter started her lessons on her 21 year old QH with a $100 used saddle and was never made to feel like what she had wasn't good enough. Tom's knowledge, amazing teaching skills, and patience were just what our daughter needed when she was young and what she appreciates most during every lesson as she advances.
I had the best training experience working with the Flatlands team. The knowledge I gained was irreplaceable and I highly recommend anyone considering riding to give it a try and you won’t be disappointed!
We start begining riders in half hour private lessons for quality one-on-one time. Once our instructors are comfortable with the students ability to ride on their own, they may transition to an hour semi-private lesson with one or two other riders.
More experienced riders are also encourages to start with an hour private lesson. After an evaluation, they will be scheduled in an hour semi-private lesson.
Tom Davis is a United States Eventing Association certified instructor as well as a Massachusetts Licensed Riding Instructor.
Half hour private lessons and hour semi prvate lessons are $60.
Hour private lessons are $85.
Before choosing a riding instructor, we recommend auditing lessons at several barns as there are so many different teaching styles and atmospheres. Once you have narrowed your choices, schedule a sample lesson from each.
