As owner and head trainer at Classic Touch Farm, Julia Hewitt brings more than a quarter-century of equine experience to each lesson, which can be offered in the disciplines of hunter, jumper, equitation, and dressage. Spread across 40 acres, the farm hosts students of all riding levels as they learn how to correctly and confidently command their mount across paddocks and over trails. Though beginners are encouraged to take private lessons in order to learn the basics and avoid snout-on collisions, more advanced lessons may be taken in a private or group setting.
