Someone asked me this week why don’t I advertise on craigslist.  My answer is because I don’t want to.  I have had a busy enough summer as it is, I don’t need to do 3 lessons every evening on top of that.  You see I work a full time job that pays for all the rest of the bills.  I am fortunate to be in a place where the farm pays for itself; between boarding fees, lessons and trial rides.

Don’t get me wrong I do advertise.  I have a beautiful sign on the side of the road created by a award winning sign maker and friend of the farm.  I have a website and I am on Google places (or is it Local? can’t keep up);   I have set up the farm to be on the short list of farms if someone happened to be Googling horses in the area.

The lessons are challenging, fun, invigorating and fulfilling all at once for me.  I love teaching beginners, watching their confidence grow and their fears subside.  Then things start clicking: I can control this magnificent beast; I am in charge; I can post the the rhythm of the trot.

I am including pictures of my recent lessons everyone from my youngest at the age of 3 to some newbies to a couple of returns from last summer.
