I wanted to try something new over the weekend, so I bought 2 horseback lessons - one for me and one for my girlfriend. What an AWESOME way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We had a great time learning the basics of riding and we'll be back again. Thanks Kathy for a great lesson!

I signed up for a horseback riding lesson in San Diego with my girlfriend on July 5 2014. We just wanted to try something new. Kathy was awesome! We learned how to brush the horse, how to saddle up, and how to take the horse from walking to trotting. We'll certainly do it again sometime. Thanks TakeLessons and Kathy!

Learning and teaching riding is my passion. I've been riding hunter/jumper for 15 years and played polo for 4 years in college; I'd love to pass on my love of horses to you! Some of my qualifications include:
– Co–Captain, VC Polo Team, competes in USPA interscholastic games
– Polo Coach, teen and adult students at beginner level
– Riding Counselor, summer camp at Rock Creek Park Horse Center, ages 4 – 8
– Equine and Small Animal Intern at the Center for Veterinary Care, Millbrook, NY

Through the past ten years I've trained Icelandic horses and taught mainly terrain riding and horsemanship (inspired by Monty Roberts' join up technique/horse whispering). Though my background is from Icelandic horses and their four-five gaits, my techniques are transferable to any horse breed and I am able to adapt my instructoins depending on horse-rider-contact and the horse's mental state and temper. I teach advanced level only on Icelandic horses.

I highly recommend Christine as a teacher.
I have been a colleague with Christine for several years, and she is always extremely conscientious in her work.
She goes to great lengths to ensure a high degree of quality and reflective and comprehensive learning.

Christine was my councilor on my master thesis in Social Entrepreneurship. She did an excellent job, and we ended up getting the grade 12 (highest grade in the danish eudcation system). Christine was always good at listening and guiding us towards the goals we sat for ourselves, which she then helped come into fruition.

Christine has my highest recommendations!

Each lesson incorporates different exercises and even games designed to challenge student and promote learning and riding skills in a fun and exciting environment! All lessons include instruction on horse care (grooming, saddling, basic care) and riding time.

Polo students will learn to ride better for polo and learn all the basics to participate in polo matches at the appropriate level of play and horsemanship.
