Carrie Torre, age 19 is the instructor for the majority of the lessons. She has been around horses and living on a farm since before she could walk. She has been teaching at her family farm for three years now. There are 7 horses that are used for lessons, a miniature, 3 ponies, and 3 full-sized horses. This ensures that all levels and students can be accommodated accurately. Students are taught from the very basics through advanced, technical riding. Lesson students learn not just how to ride a horse, but develop a lasting relationship with the horses, based on natural horsemanship techniques. This develops trust and confidence between the horse and rider. Students also learn how to brush and tack up their horses and are expected to do so at each lesson. Both English and western styles of riding are taught, tailored to the riders' interests. This individualized lesson program is specially designed to meet each riders' unique needs.
As I mentioned before, we will cover several aspects of the equine world including caring for horses, basics of showing, riding exercises, equipment maintenance, and of course horsemanship. This program is based on natural horsemanship and riders of all ages will be establishing a bond with the lesson horses throughout their riding time to get a trusting relationship between horse and rider. This is essential to all levels of riding and comes in handy when competing and moving up with your horse. Both half-hour and hour riding lessons are available. They are given every evening of the week and start at just $25. A half-hour of riding time usually has students at the barn for an hour total, so they can tack-up and cool down their horses.
2013-2014 Update:This year we had 8 full camps, including 5 summer camps, 2 mini Fall camps, and 2 Christmas camp! We had between 5 and 16 kids in each camp. We welcomed Miss Taylor in 2014 and began offering Birthday Parties as well. Miss Taylor and Miss Carrie went off to college in the fall of 2014 and have been working hard to keep up with the lessons. We had a total of 30 kids for our last camp of 2014!
2015 :With a client base of over 130 students, a new Spring camp this year, and increasing our lesson ponies to 6 horses, we cannot thank everyone enough for all this support! With more students leasing horses, showing, and attending camps all year round, we are excited at the success of our students and could not be prouder! We have officially completed a fall camp with 26 students, 8 summer camps and have 6 active showing members now! We also have 5 students leasing horses to further their knowledge and riding.
2016: With lessons underway this winter, we have welcomed several new lesson students already! In February, we welcomed "Tex" to the barn, Miss Carrie's new show horse. With Summer camps now planned, we are offering 2 advanced camps, 2 show day camps, showing at least once a month, and camps every week from June 15-August 17th! We cannot wait until Spring is here to see more students back in the saddle.
