Passionate equestrians Beth and Kristopher Siemon foster a family-friendly atmosphere at Hillside Stables, where they specialize in starting young horses and teaching humans of all ages how to ride with grace and poise. Inside their recently renovated barn, riders learn the disciplines of horse management, reining, and dressage. They also learn the skills necessary for three-day eventing, a competition composed of three events on three different days—dressage, show jumping, and mane-and-tail decorating. The instructors customize all lesson plans to the needs of the rider, taking into account not only their goals, but also their capabilities and physical limitations.
