The lesson program is one of our most important functions at Stonehouse Stables. All riding instruction is performed by or under the watchful eye of Head Instructor Tara Mathews Best. English Hunt Seat Equitation, a type of English riding most commonly associated with foxhunting, is featured. Hunter horses travel smoothly and jump both in the show ring and in the hunt field. Development of proper equitation skills increases the riders ability to control the horse as well as compete successfully in the show ring. We are fortunate to have wonderful teaching professionals, all life-long horse enthusiasts, trainers, and riders, that offer classes to both boarders and those who want to haul in for instruction.
