Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation & Ponies

We have been training horses and riders in the hunter, jumper and equitation disciplines for over 45 years!  We offer a broad range of services including coaching high-level riders on the 'A' circuit, training amateur and junior riders who want to enjoy their horses and sharpen their riding skills, and teaching lessons to beginners who are just starting their horse-back riding adventure.  We also host a competitive IEA team that welcomes high school and middle school students of all levels of riding who are interested in becoming part of an equestrian team.
