*Specializing in youth and amateur riders
Since 1989 I have specialized in working with youth and amateur riders. I started my career riding Western horses with my speciality being All Around/versatility and Trail (show) . During my college years I delved into the world of showing hunter jumpers and there I would spend the next 20+ years showing and competing. 2020 marked my path back into the Western world.
I operate a small lesson barn with a very minimal number of boarders and minimal number of training horses at any one time. If you are interested in training or tune ups, please be aware there my be a waiting list. Lessons are 45$ per hour for most riders. Youth 6 and under (leadline) are 30$/ half hour. With a strong emphasis on safetyand solid basics. "At home" programs/lessons are available so you can work on your owns horse or we can problem solve, standard rate +fuel sur charge (max 30 mile distance) Children with ADD/ADHD and high function autism are welcome as my program can me modified to accommodate their specific needs.

Edit: starting May 1,2021 I will be available at Bluehorseshoes Farm on rt 41 in Springfield two days a week. This will allow better accessibility for riders in the Dayton and Beavercreek area. For more information about this opportunity please contact Brit at .
