Lessons

We offer lessons to the rider looking to get on a horse for the first time, all the way to those seeking to hone their skills for the "A" circuit show ring in hunters or jumpers.  Lessons are tailored to the skill level of the rider and horse.

You can bring your own horse (no trailer-in fee) or ride one of our school horses (no extra charge).

$60/lesson

$550 for a package of 10 lessons

 

From time to time we have lesson horses for lease.  A half lease is available for $350/month.

Liz began to teach in her teenage years in Canada, and in 2001 graduated Cum Laude from the Equine Science program at Colorado State University.  While most of her life she has ridden hunters and jumpers, she has recently had the opportunity to develop her skills in dressage, earning her USDF Bronze Medal in the fall of 2017 and USDF Silver Medal in the spring of 2018.  She is currently working Grand Prix.

Her passion lies in developing the horses themselves, and in teaching riders the feel and detail of the horse/rider relationship.  Liz works with hunters and jumpers, preparing horses for their careers in either the CHJA or "A" circuits, and continues to train in dressage.
