We focus on the development of proper position, including intense development of body awareness. Along with this fundamental training we offer progressive development of both horse and rider in order to compete in the show ring.

Lessons are available in both Dressage and the Hunter/Jumper disciplines, on your horse or ours. The horses used for lessons at Stone Meadows are all highly trained show horses that have been under Robin’s training.

We also feel that stable management is an important part of riding; therefore several clinics are available during the year to teach these aspects of horse care.

Many of Robin's students and horses compete throughout the Ottawa area at various levels — primary, trillium and national — and have won numerous awards and championships. Robin provides show coaching to those students who take lessons.

Show Coaching Rates

Show Coaching per Day: $ 70 plus HST

There is a small mileage fee if we are not trailering your horse to the show.
