The expert instructors at Talisman Farm introduce students to european classical riding techniques such as dressage and show jumping following a curriculum designed by Will Faerber, a decorated show rider who studied extensively in Portugal with dressage master Nuno Oliveira. Faerber's training philosophy focuses on training horse and rider to act as one, showing absolute poise and balance whether they're hurdling a 5-foot fence or trotting through a booby-trapped house. Private lessons in the 5-acre equestrian center focus on the fundamentals of dressage riding and show jumping, beginning with appreciating each horse’s biomechanics so that students can ride them properly. The professional instructors are willing to work one-on-one with students of all skill levels to help them improve their riding skills. The outfit takes the same approach to jumping and vaulting lessons, which are held in the arena and geared toward preparing students for participation in horse shows.
