Lessons are offered either on your horse, or on one of our lesson horses. ARIA-certified Head Trainer Melissa Morehouse and our entire training staff work with every rider to advance their skills, as well as the skills of the horse.
Heart’s Journey Stables’ philosophy is that in order to succeed, all horse and riders need to be in an ongoing program of weekly lessons. Lessons are taught in a private or semi-private setting and are customized to educate and challenge abilities and improve weaknesses. Our instructors take the time to explain to students not only what to do, but the how and why of what they are being asked to do.
Lessons are taught in a supportive atmosphere, emphasizing the positive while suggesting how to correct the negative. We strive to teach students that they need to communicate clearly through their aids, so that their horses can respond correctly. Our students travel to Dressage, Hunter and Combined Training shows throughout the year.
Eleven of Melissa’s students have earned ESDCTA Bronze Medals while seven have earned ESDCTA Silver Medals and 2 have earned USDF Bronze Medals as of 2022!
