STRIDES Riding Academy specializes in offering riding lessons to beginner through experienced riders on lesson ponies and horses. STRIDES' main goal is provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to get outside and connect with horses and each other. 
We have a 10 level system that helps riders learn in a methodical way and track progress as they are advancing. Riders are able to learn all of the pieces needed to safely and confidently ride a horse in an arena, ride over jumps and even attend home schooling shows for those that would like to compete. 
My mission in life is to create a space where our students feel welcomed, supported and excited to learn about horses!

I have always wanted to share the joy of horses with others. Having the opportunity to create an academy that allows riders to take lessons, learn how to care for horses, connect with other students and learn that hard work really can pay off seems only natural. 
As a young adult I spent countless hours working in barns. These hours spent with the horses taught me so many lessons about dedication, patience and resilience and I am lucky to get to pass these lessons along to the students at STRIDES. In today's world, I have found even more passion and purpose in sharing the love for horses with others. 

STRIDES training is focused on a strong horsemanship foundation for beginner through advanced riders. We have extensive programs for the beginner rider to start their riding on our well schooled lesson horses and ponies and progress in a variety of directions and levels.
 Our trainers work to bring out the best in each horse and rider building confidence in our students both in and out of the saddle. 


STRIDES also offers camps all summer long to provide a brief introduction to horse care and horsemanship for young students (ages 6-12). For those looking to take their riding to the next level, STRIDES coaches middle school, high school and collegiate level competitive riding teams and hosts schooling shows on site every spring and summer!
