Twenty acres of rolling, windswept pasture and an expansive covered riding arena greet visitors at Topside Farm, the site of Irvine Training. Head trainer Tyler Irvine runs the show with nearly a lifetime of horsemanship under his belt, starting from the age of 6 and blossoming into a gift for managing horses, especially Arabians. His riding lessons demonstrate proper riding technique to students of all levels in the disciplines of Saddle Seat, Hunt Seat, and Western Pleasure. Riders receive their instruction atop one of the farm’s lineup of friendly lesson horses in the covered arena, allowing lessons to take place throughout the year and in inclement weather, when otherwise horses might get spooked by lightning or a rain cloud shaped like their ex-wives.
