My passion is to give anyone interested in horses and riding, who is no heavier than 165 pounds (that keeps a horse happy and healthy), the many positive experiences and emotions to be had, whether for one visit or more. Age is not a factor, and I've taught ages 3-1/2 to 74. I also had an Asperger's boy that benefited greatly from riding. All lessons are private for maximum benefit. I offer English and Western pony-rides and lessons, year-round, in either or both, the enclosed, indoor arena, or the covered, larger, outdoor arena. I have been riding for 50+ years, and owning for 25+ years. I have been teaching for 7+ years, and include all aspects of Horsemanship--from how to approach a horse, to grooming and tacking up, riding, and putting away. I am very easy-going, patient, kind, and entertaining, if I do say so myself. I do what I love, and love what I do.
And I have many great reviews; I'm new to this site, so you can find me on Thumbtack.
I enjoy EVERYTHING about the work I do--especially seeing the huge smiles on my riders' faces, regardless of age. It's the best job ever.

One of my young students advancing to the canter--it's always a 'big' event.
Make sure he/she matches/agrees to your goals. I have no ego--I provide what the rider needs to achieve their goal; it's not about me. Firstly, it's about the horse.
