Jennifer is dedicated to the complete education of the well-rounded horse person. Jennifer offers both mounted and unmounted instruction to all ages and levels of experience. She works with students on developing a strong seat and leg to maintain their balance on the horse. Safety on and off the horse comes first. Jennifer teaches English riding lessons with Dressage emphasis.
Jennifer starts new students in private lessons on the lunge line, so they can focus on their position without worrying about controlling the horse. After the students have gained balance and confidence on the lunge line, they start learning to control the horse off the lunge line.

Mini Mite Lessons - Private riding lessons for ages 5-8. These lessons are only a half hour of riding time. These students spend most of their time riding on the lunge line or with Jennifer close to the horse. Most kids in this age range are still too small to help groom or tack up the horse. Jennifer prepares the horse for the lesson and takes care of the horse afterwards. If the students are big enough to help, Jennifer teaches them how to groom and lets them help her get the horse ready. $35 per lesson
Private Lessons - One on one instruction for an hour riding lesson. Students are taught how to groom and tack up the horse during the first lessons. After they have learned to groom and tack up the horse, they are expected to come a few minutes early to their lesson to groom and tack up the horse. If students are not ready when their hour starts, it will cut into their riding time. $45 per lesson

Unmounted Lessons Unmounted Lesson - These lessons are available to students who want to work with horses but do not wish to ride, or want to learn more than just riding. During these lessons, students learn about skills they need if they plan to have their own horse one day. This could include lunging, bandaging, ground work, cleaning tack, feeding, and more.
Unmounted Group Lessons - These lessons are held occasionally. We have lectures, quizzes, crafts, games, snacks, and videos. The purpose of these unmounted lessons are for students to learn more about horses, horse care, and riding theory while having fun with friends. I would like all current students to participate if possible.
