Instructor Beth Parrish’s lessons are rooted in classical horsemanship and focus on riders’ breathing, balance, and connection and ability to work with their horse partner. Beth works well with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students, and teaches dressage, jumping, bareback, English, and Western riding.<p>

Inspired Riding

At Inspired Riding, instructor Beth Parrish saddles minds with new knowledge in diverse fields of horsemanship from dressage to bareback riding in both English and Western riding styles. Lessons begin as students latch steeds to lead lines, singing “Ring Around the Rosie” as they lunge the horses in slow circles before setting their feet in stirrups, which helps build trust between mount and rider. Beth then trots bonded duos through classical horsemanship exercises, focused upon the school of riding that most interests her pupils and emphasizing safety. The school’s lesson horses possess sure feet and mild temperaments, making them ideal mounts for fledging equestrians or ideal alter egos for superheroes. Located on the verge of two state parks, Inspired Riding’s paddocks feature backdrops of flawless pine groves and a soundtrack of chirping birds. The natural setting provides the perfect stage for Beth’s style of teaching, which focuses on promoting communication with animals through the delicate arts of touch, voice, and feather-duster tickling. Riding since 1986, Beth is also the author of Inspired Riding, an e-book that chronicles her experience and philosophy as a horse trainer.

My experience with the instructor, Beth, and Bentley, the horse she chose for me, was incredible! Beth was so informative and patient~ she made me feel very comfortable working with Bentley and I went away feeling like I had learned so much about horses and our relationships with them. The property is stunning and I truly appreciate the hospitality. Thank you sincerely!!! ~lauren kolls
