Lessons for Adults

Teaching Adults to ride is very different from teaching children and teens. Adults learn to ride horses in a completely different way than children do.  Adults have many questions which require an in-depth understanding of equines, body mechanics, equine personalities & much more. 

Deb has been a licensed riding instructor for over 20 years. She teaches Classical Dressage, Jumping, Western Pleasure, Trail,  Show Hack and English Pleasure Riding styles to the recreational and competitive rider. 

Deb works with riders who own their own horses. She travels to her clients throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and parts of Maine. Working with them at their barn or riding facility in private lessons. Many adult students find Deb when they are having difficulty with their horses' behavior on the ground, under saddle, or to permanently overcome their fear of riding.  

Fast, effective and permanent results happen when you ride and train with Deb.  You will have a more balanced connection with your horse, more enjoyment, success and pride in your riding. 



Deb is absolutely amazing!! I was having so many issues with my horse spooking and my just simply not enjoying riding her despite how much I wanted to. We just could not connect as a team. I spent 4 hours with Deb and my horse Figment. Deb communicated with her to start and made me aware of how my mare was feeling. She taught us to trust each other and listen to each other.... all within our first session. Figment and I had an amazing ride that day and have ridden almost every day since and all rides have been relaxed and fun. She’s a different horse and I really feel that we are in a great place together now. Debs ability to communicate with the horses and help us to understand how they are feeling and how we should communicate with them in return is priceless. I honestly feel she has saved my relationship with both of my horses. I am eternally grateful that I found Deb and plan to take lessons from her and work with her whenever I can!!!
