Over 20 years as a professional trainer, and A lifetime of experience of riding western. Mostly on trails, and in plenty of events. I will teach you skills to keep you safe in the saddle. You will learn what to do in an emergency situations BEFORE they ever happen. Many riding instructors in the New England area have never even ridden out side of the ring. Most teach only English and have a western saddle for those that may want to try western riding, but they are not really "western" I have ridden in the cactus covered foothills out West where I was born and raised by a horse trainer. (my Mother) and in the heavily wooded rural trails in Upstate NY where I lived for many years. I have put the first rides on over 375 young horses and retrained well over a thousand problem horses. I ridden in many varied places with my own horses that I trained from babies. Places like The colisuem at the Eastern States Expo, Topsfield Fairgrounds, Forest Park Zoo, Belmont Race track. I team pen, do versatility events and compete in Cowboy Mounted Shooting. I've have participated at many events and venues, shooting a gun off the back of my horse. In parades and fairs all over New England. I can teach you to ride if you have never been on a horse. I can enhance your skills if you are an English rider, or a beginner western rider. Need confidence after a bad experience? I can help. We will progress at your speed, and at your level. If you want to stay in the ring we can do that, venture out on our lovely trials, or try your hand at versatility or chasing cows, at a team penning event.
