About this pro

Horseback riding lessons offred for beginners, intermediate and advanced students and specializing in both English and Western disciplines. Students can choose to pursue the performance side of riding with competing in shows or just take it easy and ride for the joy of it. We value safety above all else and we aim to arm students with knowledge concerning how to keep both themselves and the horses safe. We make sure that students don’t feel too pressured to advance and let them go at their own pace. Lessons take place both on the horse and on the ground where the students learn everything from how to properly groom and saddle their horse to how to feed and blanket horses for the weather. I have been riding since I was little and I love sharing the joy of riding with others.

    The instructors really believe in their students and I love seeing my kids smile with a whole new confidence. McKenna, the head instructor, goes at the pace my girls are comfortable with. We love her and the horses are amazing!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first lesson is usually on the ground getting students comfortable leading and walking around the horse. Then we start with the walk until the student is able to start, stop and steer safely, confidently and correctly before transitioning to faster gates.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been certified by CHA as an instructor for horseback riding lessons in both English and Western disciplines. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lessons start at $55 per student per hour. I offer group lessons up to 4  but I prefer to have two at a time in the arena because it’s safer.


How did you get started teaching?

I have been around horses my whole life and I have been helping teach with my mom until I was 18 and then she slowly let me take the lead. I have been a co-wrangler at the camp we volunteer at for the past 3 summers.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with beginners, intermediate and advanced riders and I teach both English and Western riding. Students who want to just ride for fun are welcome as well as others looking to peruse the performance and competitive side of riding. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We are expecting a foal to be born in June of 2018!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure that the teacher goes at a pace you're comfortable with, focuses on your safety first and always champions you as the rider.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about time commitment. Are you wanting to take lessons every week, every month or sporadically?

Do you have the necessary equipment (i.e. boots, jeans, breeches, jodpurs, helmet, etc) and are you the student willing to borrow from the instructor?

Will the instructor have extra boots, helmets, gloves, ect. for students to borrow?

Are the horses beginner, intermediate and advanced rider friendly?

Will the instructor put you on a horse that is too much for you?
