Deb is focused on teaching children, tweens & teens to become amazing equestrians while nurturing their love of horses. She teaches a limited number of students and uses her own personal horses.
All lessons have a focus on safety & fun. With over 20 years experience teaching riders age 3 and up, Deb works with each individual student to learn their goals and their individual learning style. Helping them to reach their fullest potential while having fun.
Personalized attention and instruction are the focus to give each student the most out of every lesson. Because of the individual focus in lessons, Deb only offers Private & Semi-Private options. Semi-private lessons are only available for students who are age 11 or older, have been riding for a minimum of 1 year with Deb and are independent at the w/t.
The Horse Charmers
Riding in private lessons is a dual-edged sword. The student connects on a much deeper level with the horses and learns to ride much faster, but can lose out on being part of a larger community with people. So Deb created her barn group The Horse Charmers. This group allows all of Deb's under-18 students the opportunity to be around the barn, learn about horses, horse health, and all things horse related. It also allows her students to learn important life skills, in a community of peers. Students attend free and for-fee clinics at the Wholistic Riding Center. If a student is interested, as they grow in their riding ability, they have the opportunity to join their peers at onsite and offsite horse competitions.
Deb offers individualized programs in equitation, dressage, show hack, jumping, western pleasure and trail. These specialties are offered to meet the varied interests of her students.
**Reminder that all current students have access to online video classes created by Deb. Once you have learned or are learning something new, you will be given access to the video(s) to review what you are learning. This allows you to watch as well as participate. Fully integrating you into understanding each part of ground work and riding!!!

Deb Brosnan has been my daughter’s teacher for the past 4 years. During this time my daughter not only became a confident rider, but Deb brought out the true horse lover in her. She came to her as a shy, timid girl, and now has the confidence of a true horsewoman. I cannot say enough about Deb, she is wonderful to the students. It enriches all of her students both children and adults. She teaches not only the basic lesson plans, she puts great emphasis on barn safety, and the rider’s responsibility for ensuring that they will always be safe. Her lessons go from basic lessons, to learning about breeds, temperaments, health of horses, economics of the horse world etc.
She is such an expert in her field, I would not trust anyone else to teach my daughter. We had been at barns before hers, and this is by far the most outstanding experience my daughter has ever had.
This riding program has allowed my daughter the versatility, to learn English and Western riding specifically, jumping. Deb has such vast knowledge, that she is willing and able to help in any area a child might be interested in.
I would highly recommend Deb Brosnan as a riding instructor to any parent. Her own love of horses, transposes onto the children, and the end result, is a happy, confident rider.
