Harmony Horse Training
Harmony Horse Training owner Gillian Linberg began jumping fences at the age of 16. Not on foot, mind you, but on horseback. Her passion for horses led her to study dressage, show jumping, and competing at Dunvegan Training in Scotland. Before her 17th birthday, Linberg had received her British Horse Society 1 and 2 certifications, and by the time she was 18, she had earned her BHS 3 and teaching qualifications. Since then, she has cared for steeds in Rome, and conquered the National Vocational Qualification exam.
Gillian’s love for horses and showing eventually led her to open Harmony Horse Training, where she introduces children of all ages to the world of horseback riding. Her lessons teach students how to properly care for a horse, how to prep them for a trail ride, and how to reduce their stress by steering them away from lion cages. Gillian also hosts birthday parties, as well as summer and half-day camps, that teach the fundamentals of horse care, from tacking to grooming.
