I have loved horses for as long as I can remember. It is a dream come true that I not only own horses now, but that I have helped rehome and bring aweness to so many in need. It's also very heartwarmng to work along with my daughter, and some very talented instructors and riders, that have become life long friends, and also to have the support of my husband.
I could not do this with out the help and generosity of the community. I am truley greatful for all the kindness.
I love sharing my knowledge of horsemanship, as much as I love learning from others.
Rachel has been teaching by my side for years, She also works the camps with us. She loves working with riders and seeing them advance in lessons, or simply brush up on their skills. Rachel enjoys competing, and helping me with show planning, and supporting her "team" of young riders. Rachel is currently attending DCC and hopes to become an equine dentist. (or a crazy cat lady)
Kate has been teaching for over 10 yrs, and has a degree in Equine management. She is a very successful competitor as well. She is truly an awesome instructor and has a keen eye for technique. She has helped so many of our riders, including Rachel, improve tremendously. Kate is a "tough cookie" when it comes to instructing...do not expect to leave her lesson feeling like you just had a "horsey play date", but rather a good workout and something valuable learned. This "Britt kid" is serious ! And yes, she "teaches in the rain" LOL. I am in awe just watching and listening to her...we are very lucky to have her as part of our team.
Samantha came along with Kate, her instructor, when we first met. She is also an fantastic addition to our barn ! She often teaches on weekends, bringing in some of her own students, as well as welcoming ours. She has a great way about her and really dedicates her attention to the well being, understanding and success of her students.
Corinne has been teaching here for a couple of years, mostly on Sundays. She has a great way with kids, adults and the horses. She is very patient, and always makes the lesson fun ! Corinne is a volunteer at The Therapeutic Riding Center, and has been riding since she was 4 yrs old. Corrine has retrained and taught lessons, and has competed across NY, RI, and CT. Corinne will be attending Johnson & Wales this fall, majoring in Equine Bussiness and International Bussiness Relations.
Anna is our "Wednesday" instructor and the group looks forward to her new plan each week. Anna is also a volunteer at TEC, and has been teaching for years, as well as riding since a young age. Anna owns an off the track TB, that she is currently training, "Star".
Cassandra is a local artist (movie set make-up, event make-up, sculpturer, etc) who offered to help here, because of her love and experience with horses. She is truly valued here as a worker as well as a friend ! You can always tell when she is here, just look for the "red lipstick kiss mark" on the horse's nose ! She is incredibly generous with her time and help !
Tati is here on Thursdays, taking on some students of her own, as she loves to teach Dressage, as well as English. She has such enthusiasm and a genuine love of all things horse ! She is a great help to me and the riders look forward to working with her each week.
