Are you a parent with a horse crazy kid? Are they begging you for a horse? Are you an adult who wants to learn how to ride and take care of a horse? Are you a timid rider? I can teach you and/or your child the challenging task of taking care of a horse and riding. I own four horses, which are all at different ages and levels, three different breeds (TB, SWB, OLD NA). I will teach the following: grooming, stable management, equine health, care and nutrition, tack care, pasture maintenance, riding lessons, how to break young horses, breeding practices, etc. Schedule of a typical lesson: Catch your horse, groom and bond with your horse, tack up your horse, learn parts to the horse, ride your lesson, cool down, untack, hose off, turn out, put items away, leaving area neat and tidy. Lessons are taught one-on-one, and students are able to bond with their lesson horse, and we can switch up horses as the student progresses. Local showing is also available. My lessons are challenging, yet fun, to make the students the best equestrians they can be. Children and adults will either come away from my program and still want a horse, or know that they are not really interested in the hard work. Save a lot of money, and maybe even the life of a horse that might become unwanted, by hiring me first.I can also travel to your farm to give lessons. We have access to over 250 acres of family owned private land for trail rides as well.Only 4.5 miles from Haile Village. My farm is a safe and private, down a dirt road in the heart of Gainesville. We are located approximately 3.5 miles west of I-75 off Newberry Rd. I am taking on a limited number of students ranging in age from 6 to adult.
