A Chat with Shelby Oaks Farm
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Shelby Oaks is a beautiful 18-acre facility. Our trainer Christie Saunders has 20 years of riding and teaching experience, teaching riders of all levels and ages. Each lesson is customized for each individual rider to work with goals in riding, whether they’re riding for pleasure or competition.
What is the experience customers can expect?
Riders can expect a fun and friendly atmosphere. In beginner lessons, the rider will spend the first 15 minutes learning how to groom and tack up horse properly and then will have 30 minutes of riding time, teaching rider the proper basic riding skills. After riding, we will go back to untack and groom the horse.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Riding and the equine industry has always been a huge passion of mine.
What do you love most about your job?
There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing a rider bond with their horse and pony and to achieve a goal together.
