Teaching people to get horses to do what they want them to.
…know a child who loves horses?
…want to get back into riding?
…need to build up confidence again?
…want to level up your riding?
…need a better relationship with your horse?
…think trainers shouldn’t be the only ones who understand horses?
But it’s hard to know where to go to learn.
If you’re new to the industry, you simply don’t know where the best instruction is.
If you’ve been in it a while, you know everyone’s got their own ideas about how things should work.
I explain riding in simple, accurate terms—a way that makes sense of everyone’s methods so you don’t have to guess at which way is best or how to stay safe around horses.
You’ll know why you are doing what you’re doing with a horse, and he’ll do what you ask him to. That’s how you ride better.
Learning horsemanship (or learning to do it better) is filled with advantages. You gain leadership skills, confidence, and the responsibility of caring for another creature.
It can lead to a meaningful career, be a healthy way to relieve stress, or simply a fun physical activity.
That’s why I offer lessons. I teach all aspects of horse care to those new to horses, and advanced skills for training and understanding horses to those who have loved them a long time.
Enjoy the benefits of horseback riding!

I want to thank you for teaching my children horsemanship. Not only are they really enjoying themselves, but they are learning so much and are really excited to be learning so much. I appreciate also the way in which you are teaching them.
I have ridden at many different barns, but when we moved I had to find a new stable. Clairety Horsemanship taught me how to prepare and control my horse so I gained much confidence and very much enjoyed the instructor. My experience has been amazing! Best barn and best instructor. Definitely check it out if … Continue reading Ellie L.
We couldn’t find affordable lessons in or around the city. My daughter really wanted to learn, but cost was a big deterrent for us, which was discouraging for our daughter. Clairety was a perfect fit for us in every way. Instead of feeling like her dream was out of reach, she was able to focus … Continue reading Julia B.
When Claire met our horses, they were bored and disinterested, with poor manners. They didn’t always follow directions, were easily confused, tricky to catch, and avoided halters or bits. This behaviour made it difficult to justify keeping the horses. Through the training, I gained confidence and skills to manage defiance and avoidance. All four horses received … Continue reading Marion K.
What do I need to bring to my lessons?
You will need an ASTM certified riding helmet and boots that have a 1 cm tall heel. The stable has a few helmets to borrow, but prefer if you get your own because they don’t clean the helmets and they may not fit you well. You can use them at your own risk, find a second hand one on Kijiji, or buy a new one (G&E Pharmacy has the best prices). Boots with a heel prevent your foot from getting caught in the saddle’s stirrup. Most rubber boots are suitable, but for the winter try to find winter boots with a heel!
When is payment due for a session of lessons?
Once you hit the register button and tell me what lesson time you would prefer, you will need to send me a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot. The remaining balance for the session is due at your first lesson. I can accept eTransfer, cash, or cheque.
Do you teach year-round?
Yes! There is a heated indoor arena for the cold months, and an outdoor arena for nice weather. For parents and siblings, there is a heated viewing room. For the horses’ comfort, and so they don’t get sweaty when we ride in the winter, the arena is only heated to 8 degrees, so please dress in warm layers.
What ages do you teach?
Any students under 8 must be led by an adult or capable older sibling until they show they can control the horse by themselves. There is no age limit for adults!
