Dressage Trainer (year round)
Our lessons are tailored for riders wanting to find their equine partner, prepare to enter the show ring, or advance their show career. Our patrons range from Leadline aged future stars to the adult that re-discovered their childhood dream. From novice to the most experienced rider, lessons increase form and skill and also build poise and confidence. Beginner lessons will include horse basics such as tack function, purpose, safety, care and horsemanship. We place an emphasis on the correct education of horse and rider combined to produce the most enjoyable experience no matter where our horse dreams take us. Whether you are riding your personal horse for pleasure or competing for ribbons, our mission is to utilize equestrian sports to promote self-control and teamwork. Lessons are also available at your barn.
We no longer offer lessons for non owner/leasees. We can help you find a horse to purchase or lease and may have some availability to keep you in the saddle on one of our personal horses in the meantime. Please inquire about availability!
