Lessons

Hillside Stable offers lessons in jumping, dressage, and basic flatwork. We often also have horses available for part lease.

**We currently do not have any availability for lesson horse lessons.

Lessons are taught by Karen Nelson, who has experience competing in dressage, hunters, jumpers, and open show classes including western pleasure. Karen has been teaching since 1991, and so has decades of experience coaching riders of various levels and ambitions. Also available for clinics at your location.

Our program teaches women the fundamentals of dressage and jumping. Our lessons focus on understanding why as well as how, in a fun, safe and encouraging environment. Our lessons are taught with 1 – 4  riders per group, and are taught during the day or on weekday evenings. We currently only have adult clients at our barn, however responsible teenagers are welcome!
