Get Started with Learning Levels

We want you to do you!

Your lesson program is unique: it’s the result of your experience, riding disciplines,  local target market, facility, horses, climate, budget and goals.

And if you know your stuff well enough to teach a mounted or unmounted lesson program, you already have a pretty good idea of what works for your situation.

If you’re like most riding instructors, you just don’t have a lot of time.

That’s why you’re here, right?

So we’ve created some simple paths to help you get organized and find just the resources that will work for you.

Contact Us

Drop us a line with your question or comment and we’ll do our best to respond quickly. Like you, we have horses and students and dogs and cats and families to manage, but we check email several times a day so you should hear from us within 24 hours.

We have been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood out in a sweltering/ freezing arena – or slogged up and down our hilly pastures – capturing lifelong memories of camps, clinics, and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One such student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here.

You’ll also find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials (like study guides) graciously donated by Rhonda Hagy, who is a student and lifelong friend. Contact us for information about her work.

Are we lucky or WHAT?!
