How To Get Started

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Since moving to our beautiful new location at Prado Park Equestrian Center, our lesson program has been downsized and for the 2023 year the focus of our school will be on offering more to our trainingn clients, as the Owner, Liza Hillman, will be traveling throughout the year to further her own education on advanced training techniques. Our lessons will be VERY limited during this time.

Whether you're looking to sign up for camps or inquire about starting lessons, the next step is to EMAIL us at

You're also always welcome to call if you have any questions or feel better speaking to someone before getting started, but keep in mind, we are often out with the horses and if we do get the chance to answer calls, we're not always in front of a computer or in a place to take down the needed information, and will happily chat with you as we're throwing hay into stalls, but will still likely ask you to email us that information. We LOVE talking to all of our students, and prospective students, but we also want to make sure we have everything recorded!

Next, please provide the following information in your email:

  • Name (& preferred pronouns)

  • Age

  • Height and weight, so that we can pair you with the right horse.

  • Experience ("None" is fine!) Are you a brand new beginner, or did you grow up riding bareback in the back yard? Have you gone on a hundred guided trail rides but never had any instruction? Have you been thrown and need to work your confidence back up?

Then, let us know WHAT you are interested, and WHEN you are available!

Please give us as much detail as possible- days and times that you are open. Or, if you're interested in a camp, or specific date, let us know which one!

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE LESSONS OR EVENTS before confirming a time (and if lessons, receiving a membership recommendation)

Using Our Calendar

When looking at our calendar, please use it to...

- Find out which days lessons are available vs not available(you'll see some days marked "NO LESSONS")

- Find Camp Dates

- Find Special Events such as Team Days

- Find Dates for Test Days, Practice Days or Makeup Lesson Days

Don't use it to find out where you can join a class. Classes change often, and the calendar online keeps our students' privacy and does not indicate which classes are full, open, or if new classes will be created soon. We also prefer to evaluate each and every one of our students to be able to personally place them in the best class, which is why we ask for so much information in the very beginning.

We can't wait for you to join us!
