From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My name is Ann Simon, I have been riding and competing in various western riding disciplines most of my life and have been teaching lessons and training horses for 11 years. I am PATH Int'l Certified to teach students with disabilities. For testimonials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkC_S1O1ODI
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Approach horses quietly, but confidently, they read your body language. Wear closed toed shoes and long pants. We provide helmets if you do not bring your own, they are required for anyone under 18.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always had a love and understanding of horses as well as a ton of patience so it seemed like a natural path for me to join a career where I can ride and teach lessons every day!
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to share my passion of horses and riding with others. I have had many students that struggled with confidence, some of which had bad experiences. It is neat to watch their confidence blossom as their knowledge grows and they discover (or rediscover) a new passion themselves.
