A Chat with Pony Tail Acres
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Dawn is a skilled instructor who imparts the reason "why" we do something, rather than just telling a rider that they should do it that way.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Please show up dressed in pants, shirt with sleeves (long or short), and close toed shoes (hiking boots are perfect. Long hair should be neatly tied back with a ponytail holder or a braid.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We have a passion for horses and want to give as many people the opportunity to join in a sport that we love.
What do you love most about your job?
I love teaching riders of all ages because we love our horses. I love the "ah-ha" moments of when something finally clicks and watching a timid rider be brave on their own for the first time. It's beautiful watching riders grow as people.
