Instructor Beth Parrish saddles minds with new knowledge in diverse fields of horsemanship from dressage to bareback riding in both English and Western saddle riding styles. Students latch steeds to lead lines, singing “Ring Around the Rosie” as they lunge the horses in slow circles before setting feet in stirrups, helping to build trust between mount and rider. The teacher 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 steeds 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 Parrish’s style of teaching, which focuses on promoting communication with animals through the delicate arts of touch, voice, and feather-duster tickling.

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
