I offer Western and English Riding lessons as well as horse training. I have competed in Showmanship, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, Halter , Jumping and non contact Jousting. I have also done Horse Judging, Training and Breaking Colts, Horse Consulting on new purchases, and tune-ups on sale prospects. I prefer a natural approach to horsemanship and always emphasize safety and precautions. I encourage groundwork, lunging and mutual respect between horse and rider. I like to begin training new students with safety and groundwork so they become comfortable around the horse. I have a few horses and one pony that I use for my lessons.

My 2 children take riding lessons with AP Riding on a weekly basis for months now! They were inexperienced riders and unfamiliar with large animals. AP Riding has taught them confidence and practices Safety! Safety! Safety! I'm grateful to have a affordable, experienced, local equestrian lessons for my culturally developing children! AP Riding has a clean safety record with their horses and riding instructor! I trust my children and the training found at AP Riding! Integrity and experience is priceless!

This was the header to the newest horse drawing my 8 year old daughter drew for her teacher! So cute! Ashley, teaches my 8 and 5 year old girls. Along with my 7 year old boy. All three kids just adore her! On top of being an excellent teacher and very patient with the kids, -she really cares about them. I love that she kindly went out and purchased a new saddle specifically for my 5 year old to be more comfortable riding. She's really thoughtful of the kids and even made my oldest daughter earrings with some of Gus's tail hair in them. They turned out super cute, and you can only imagine my 8 year old was over the moon about it!

My two children have trained at AP Riding every week now for the last two months. My children are not only taught how to ride, but how properly prepare and maintain a horse. Ashley instructs on watching for the temperment of the horse and how to compensate for this. I have referred other friends and will continue to do so.
Fantastic instructor and trainer! Loved the pony party too.

AP has been teaching me and training my mare quarter horse for 6 months. The instructor is extensively experienced and I've greatly expanded my skills under her guidance. Training-wise, my mare refused to go anywhere off property. After the first lesson i noticed a huge improvement. After half a dozen lessons my mare is SO much better. I can take her all over the area; while she is still stubborn and sometimes reluctant to leave home, a bit of coaxing gets her going. I also had AP do a unicorn-themed pony party. About 50 kids had fun and safe rides. I was glad the instructor was so safety minded and good with kids because i was nervous having so many screaming kids around a pony. Before their turn each child was instructed on horse safety and given a helmet to wear and the pony was constantly lead by the instructor. If you are considering riding lessons, horse training, or pony parties, AP will do a great job for you and your horse. I'm very happy with how much she has helped mine.
