Training Testimonials

ALLISON / BEGINNER RIDER
Allison has been riding since she was a baby but this summer has been the first time she has really been able to be let off the line. Kelley has been a big part of that by helping Allison gain her confidence and the control she needs to be able to ride alone. Allison has learned so much in the past few months and she can never wait until her next lesson. Kelley really works well with the young riders. Ally’s pony is much happier as well now that his rider is learning to have a quiet seat and hands. I can’t wait to see them at their first show. –Lynn (mother)

ALYSSA / EVENTING
Kelley has taught me so much about myself and my new horse.  She gives me “homework” to work on after each lesson to improve my skills.  She is able to pick up on my weaknesses and my strengths and is teaching me how to apply myself in a more effective manner.

ERIN / DRESSAGE
I love how Kelley has helped up to develop a set of tools to both address my weaknesses and my horse’s weaknesses while progressing from very basic to schooling lateral work.

BREANNA / DRESSAGE
I have ridden with many trainers but Kelley has helped me immensely. She has helped me to become a better rider and has transformed my horse. She has helped us to do things we never thought we could achieve.

MANDY / DRESSAGE, TRAIL RIDING, JUMPING
Kelley has helped me form a better connection with my horse and be more precise with my cues. Also, Kelley helped me teach KC to how to jump, something I never thought he would be able to accomplish.

MICHAELA / EVENTING

Each week I look forward to new exercises that Kelley has put together for me and my elderly horse. Keeps up both young!

KATHRYN / DRESSAGE, TRAIL RIDING
Kelley has helped me help Anya to become more balanced and responsive, thus greatly progressing in our dressage training. Kelley has a wealth of knowledge and is extremely passionate about her teaching – it really shows in her instruction!

JACKIE/ DRESSAGE, PONY CLUB
Kelley has a unique way of teaching. She uses body awareness of horse and rider which has helped me to understand how to get the best out of my horse.

CARLENE / PLEASURE RIDING
Kelley has helped me to develop a better seat and communicate better with my horse using leg and lower body.

JOANNA / DRESSAGE, TRAIL RIDING
Kelley offers a wonderful experience for the mature rider to work and continue to grow with her horse.

KRISTA / ENGLISH PLEASURE, TRAIL RIDING
I broke Karma out as a 4 year old and, before meeting Kelley, she had plateaued in her training. Since beginning lessons with Kelley, I have noticed Karma’s muscling changes and she uses herself differently. I love the different patterns the lessons include. It is fun work for me and my horse. I am starting to achieve the ‘polish’ I desire and am very happy with the progress!
