During private lessons, Christina Hutton and her team of trainers guide individual riders through the basics of hunter and jumper equitation training. They may cover basics such as how to mount a horse and steer it with the reins or how to issue commands. Instructors tack up the horse before each lesson and take down the tacking afterward, ensuring customers enjoy riding time for the entirety of their sessions.
When not teaching visitors how to ride, Christina Hutton lavishes care upon her horses, including feedings, cleanings, and basic medical treatments. She lives on the farm, and rises early to watch over its expanse, which includes a seven-stall barn, large pastures surrounded by pillowy trees, and a jumping area with white fence hurdles rather than the sleeping serfs in old-timey jumping facilities. During the day, she and her team of instructors train novice and experienced equestrians in hunter and jumper techniques during private and group lessons. In addition to more studious pursuits, Christina and her staff also guide saddle-mounted pony rides, and coordinate arts, crafts, and games during children's birthday parties.
