The highly trained instructors at Lashay Arabians cultivate empathy between horses and humans with private 60-minute riding lessons. Teaching year-round in their sizable indoor arena, horse whisperers dish the low-down on equestrian basics like mounting the saddle, controlling the bit and reins, and shifting gears without stalling. Instructors posit that as riders gain confidence with their steed, an unspoken bond begins to form that can be cultivated through continued lessons and competitive one-on-one games of HORSE.
Arabian horses are known for the strong bonds they form with their caretakers. Lashay Arabians’ owner, Lisa Park, can attest to that fact. Throughout her 22 years of horse training and riding, she always has cared for loving arabian steeds, and her stables house a number of arabian and arabian-mixed mounts. Flower, Lisa's 24-year-old mare, has been with her since before she began her career leading lessons of riding and jumping, and to this day still takes kids for trots around the farm while neighing about her favorite episode of Cheers.
Along with fellow trainer Leslee Pugh, Lisa leads lessons for students of all ages and skill levels that teach the art of horsemanship, from recreational riding to national-level showing to jumping and dressage. The team also assists riders in need by coaching them during events, transporting horses to and from locations, and leasing horses to those who want to ride more but are not ready to buy their own mount.
