Horse Trainer Blog 👉🏻 KC Who?


KC has been teaching and training as a professional equestrian and horse trainer since graduating college in 1996.  With many opportunities to learn from other professionals KC has developed a straightforward approach to teaching and training.
Focusing on the history of hunt seat riding as a foundation and integrating practical horsemanship techniques her lessons are focused and geared for riders interested in real results and sincere effort.  Her love of horses and commitment to the animals led to Winter Hill's retirement board program as well.

Lessons & Clinics - $85.00

On or off site clinic spots available for riders who would like some extra help in addition to their regular lesson program. Winter Hill riders and ship-ins welcome.

*Longwood riders in a team, Winter Hill horse lease, or board program have discounted lesson rate of $45.00*

Exercise Rides - $30, Training Rides $45-60

Student boarders who are focusing on academics may need assistance keeping their horse exercised.  This is not a training ride and only available for horses who are well behaved and are ridden by KC in a training ride at least once per week. $30

Training rides are very useful for leased or boarded horses to assist in horse's understanding of exercises and expectations to prepare them appropriately for students to get the most from their lessons.  Students riding less than 4x week will be billed for a minimum of one training ride and possible additional training and/or exercise rides depending on horse's temperament and training.

1xweek= $60

2xweek= $50

3xweek = $45
