Riding Lesson program:

Horseback Riding for the Mind, Body & Soul. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for those interested in exploring the healing benefits of riding and building relationships with horses. For those who connect with horses there is something special about the way they make us feel. They can give us peace or a quietness in our soul. Riding them has proven to be amazing therapy for us physically, cognitively and in our inner being.

We offer English Dressage and Jumping lessons, from beginner to intermediate riders, ages 4 and over, under the guidance of  our amazing instructor Leigh Sawyer.

Leigh had a lifelong passion for horses even before her first riding lesson at age 8. So that’s 52 years of riding…trails, lessons, competing.
She is a lifelong learner and has trained and competed in Dressage, Eventing, Hunter/Jumper, Driven Dressage and Combined Driving.
She is an alumni of the US Pony Club and a Graduate B and H-A. She taught weekly Pony Club lessons for several decades in California, 10 years as the Head Instructor of the Moon Valley Pony Club.  She also taught at all levels from Unrated to the C-3 level (from baby beginners to advanced riders).
She loves teaching people of ALL ages.
Her main goal as a riding instructor is for her students to achieve their goals and along the way have fun, be safe and become a well rounded horse person.  Leigh customizes each rider’s lesson plan to focus on developing an independent seat and hands, becoming a confident and strong rider and working on skills that will serve for any discipline.

Katharina has been riding, training and competing successfully on regional and national level in Germany and the US for almost 25 years. Her passion lays in show jumping, but she is very versatile and has shown successfully also in Dressage and Eventing. Katharina is blessed with a great feeling and the ability to adapt to every kind of horse to let them shine. She currently competes her own and in young horse classes. She was lately awarded a 3 time Champion on the regional level and will be heading to the National Championships for Arabian horses in the fall. If her schedule allows, she will be glad to share her knowledge in form of lessons and training rides.
