Any rider wishing to increase their riding skills and communication with their horse is welcome. My teaching is focused on jumpers but encompasses all riding. I have extensive experience in eventing, problem horses (and riders), & bareback. I bring elements of natural horsemanship, order, feel, and knowledge to my teaching and training. I excell at being able to teach feel to the rider and why a horse is doing certain behaviors. Lessons are held regardless of weather with use of the indoor ring.
30 min private lesson- $50
60 min private lesson- $75
60 min group lesson (2+ riders)- $55
10% discount on lessons when purchased as a package of 10, that must be used within a 12 week period. Paid in advance.
Gia, a 16h well trained warmblood, for riding or lunge lessons. She is an excellent teacher and proficent in dressage, jumping, and quitely lunging with a sensitivity that allows riders to learn to use subtle aids.
A few other horses at the farm are occasionally used in lessons depending on riders abilities.
There is the opportunity to take lessons on other horses as well.
Trailering in for lessons on your own horse is welcome. I greatly enjoy helping riders form stronger realationships and better communication with their own horse.
August 15 2015- Lacey's newest filly Ribbons & Lace (aka Roxette) was amazing at her RPSI inspection, winning Site Champion Foal and Gold Premium with a score of 8.6! Lacey has a huge trot but Roxette was passing her in trot that just floated across the ground. Plus Roxette is sweet, kind, and has a wonderful sense to her. Love this girl!
May 16 2015 Lacey had her baby and it's a girl! Beautiful markings, this girl is vibrant and well put together. I wouldn't change a thing about her. Labor went great, although Lacey tried to sneak out to pasture to have her baby and I caught her just before her water broke. We will name her soon.<

Faith and Juliet both got 6th place over all at the Redgate Farm Horse Show Year End Awards banquet. It was a wonderful time and the girls felt very proud. Plus they got a great goodie bag and a big ribbon!

Rubichez competed at the USEA FEH East Coast Championships. He placed 4th in the 2yr old Colt division and was very well behaved. I will most likely be heading him towards the jumper or dressage ring in the future but the FEH program is wonderful to get the young ones out and used to the show atmosphere.

Juliet and Faith Burns rode in the Lead Line division at the Philomont Horse Show. Faith placed 2nd, and at Juliet's first show she placed second and third, but the lollipop was the most appreciated prize! Twinkles was a star too!

Freestyle x Nabiola Filly is Here!
Nabiola had a black filly by Freestyle at 1:40AM Friday morning! She has two hind socks, a large star, and a super sweet disposition. The labor went smoothly and Nabiola is a wonderful, attentive mother. The filly loves racing back and forth in her pasture, until she plops down for a rest with her mama standing guard. The other broodmares, who will have foals next spring, look jealous:)
