What We Do
The primary goal of our Hunt-seat lesson program is to create riders who are effective and safe in any situation.  
Over the last twelve years we have helped countless students reach or exceed their own, personal goals.  

How?
By giving students a complete education both in the saddle and on the ground.
Explaining both "why" and "how" 
Teaching methods adjust to each student's individual needs, allowing progress at its own pace.

About our Safety Record:

Over the past 12 years in which Beth Collyer has been teaching full-time including more than 200 students, untold hundreds of lessons, countless horse shows and every other riding situation...

NO student under her direct supervision has suffered major injury beyond bumps, bruises & a couple sprains.
ZERO broken bones, stitches, concussions or otherwise.  


We have some falls, these simply come with riding but thank God for his protection and knock on wood just to be sure.
