Lisa R. Kraut, Hidden Lark Farm's head trainer, first saddled up at age six, and has been riding and training horses ever since. She and a crew of seasoned instructors share their expertise at the 25-acre farm, which encompasses rolling meadows and an outdoor ring of sand and clay. In a private or group setting, they adapt lessons for all ability levels, molding them around English equestrian techniques as well as pupils' ambitions, such as showing or teaching a horse how to take off his own saddle. Teachers further nurture rapport between rider and steed during trail rides and at horsemanship camps.
