Q&A with Teri, Owner, Trainer, and Instructor

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Horseback-riding lessons are the foundation of our business. We provide one-on-one instruction in all areas of riding, from beginner basics to the show ring. Utilizing a goal-driven method, which produces progression of skill, our lessons focus on fun, safety, and education.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I, the owner and trainer, have a BS in equestrian business management from Stephens College. I am also CPR– and First Aid–certified.

What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
You do not need any prior experience to ride, nor do you need to be young. Anyone of any age can start riding.

Along their lush, 40-acre parcel of land, Brad and Mary Ann Funk bring a lifelong dream to fruition every day. The Funks transformed their property into a school—a place where visitors of all ages and experience levels can learn about the couple's shared passion: horses. In the warmer months, students of Ashwood Farms can be seen trotting, cantering, and conquering fences at the outdoor arena, equipped with all-weather footing. Year-round, the farm and stables are home to casual equestrians and competitive riders alike, a handful of whom compete across the country at AA Hunter/Jumper horse shows. Students can enroll in individual classes, or join the equestrian club for a unique, well-rounded experience that includes lessons and tips for a flawless ponytail. Ashwood also provides boarding services for those already equipped with ponies, and school horses for those who wish to use them during lessons and practice rides.
