I am an equine enthusiast who has been riding since I was 2 years old. When I was 14 I really started teaching people and training horses in a variety of disciplines. I teach and train from basic riding, trails, cattle drives, roping, barrels, hunter jumping, and teach rider and horse how to stay calm in unpredictable scenarios. I have taught riders from 3-80 years old how to ride. I also fix a lot a bad riding habits and bad body positions due to my specialization in biomechanics.
Watching my students make progress. It's very rewarding to see days where they get frustrated and want to quite but they develop such a relationship with the horse they don't want to quit.
Brigy is an amazing teacher! She is super patient and makes it fun! She always makes you feel comfortable and safe!
Brigette is very nice and professional. She is very educated and thorough with her teaching and answers any questions you have. She has a fantastic personality and makes lessons fun and challenging.
6-8 weeks of horse riding and understanding 101 if they are completely brand new. I teach my students safety around horses. I teach them how to catch their horse, brush them, clean their feet, saddle them and bridal them. Then we work on how to get our horse to stop, go, turn, back up etc. then they learn care for after riding.
$40 an hour for beginners if they have their own horse $50 if mine is used. Prices will vary on the disciple of riding the student wants to do whether it's barrels, hunter jumping etc.
When I was 14 I was a personal assistant trainer for a trainer and I would teach people at her barn and travel to other barns. I had taught mostly English under saddle and hunter jumping at the time while also competing myself.
Every student you can imagine. I have worked with students as young as 3 to as old as 80. I have also worked with students with disabilities like autism, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome etc. I love all my students.
What do you want to get out of riding?
Do you want to ride for fun or be competitive with it?
Is riding something you would want to continue on as you get older?
