Horse Riding Lessons
Academy Stables provides English and western riding lessons. We primarily offer group lessons but privates and semi private lessons are also available. Each group and semi private lesson includes one hour of professional instruction for riders aged 6 and up. We welcome all ability levels from first time riders to advanced riders to adults who want to return to ridding after many years away from the sport.
Group lessons have 4 riders in them to ensure that all students get adequate attention and instruction. It also provides a safety oriented atmosphere where riding arenas are not over crowded and horse’s are not over used.
Groups are organized by ability level first and age second. Below is a general description of the classes we offer.

Master’s Rider Private
Hayden hails from Massachusetts where she started riding horses at 6 years old! She competed as an English style rider at small jumper shows and equation classes throughout her childhood and teenage years. Then, she became interested in three-phase Eventing and began competing at beginner novice and went on to her first Prelim trials at 20 years old.
Hayden built her foundation for teaching through her experiences in United States Pony Club. USPC taught her horse knowledge, care, and riding to advanced levels. As a people person and also a passionate horseback rider, Hayden has always gravitated toward teaching lessons and training horses—all ages and all types.
She is competent to teach dressage, stadium, cross country, and trail riding with a focus on riding naturally and harmoniously. Hayden says, “I am very thankful for all my years of going to summer horse camps, working at farms, leasing and owning horses that made me the horsewoman I am today!
My riding influences are Sara Contois, Lucinda Green, Karen Rohlf, Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin, David and Karen O’Connor, and many, many more!” We are thrilled to have Hayden teaching all levels of riders at Academy Stables.
