Lessons

Hillside Stable offers lessons in jumping, dressage, and basic flatwork.  We are introducing Working Equitation to our lessons in 2023. We often have horses available for part lease to our students.

Lessons are taught by Karen Nelson, who has experience competing in dressage, hunters, jumpers, and open show classes. Karen has been teaching since 1991, and so has decades of experience coaching riders of various levels and ambitions.

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 – 3  riders per group, and are taught during the day or on weekday evenings. Our clients range from 16 to 60’s!
