Destination Farm offers lessons and training from the farm’s two experienced event trainers: Suzannah Cornue and Natalie Hollis. Natalie is an Advanced Level event rider and is an USEA ICP Level III certified instructor. Suz is an USEA ICP Level I-Training certified instructor. Suz will be testing for her Level II ICP certification in the future! Our barn manager / assistant trainer, Meredith Ferraris, also is available for beginner lessons with our school horses and pony. Learn more about their backgrounds on the “About Us” page.
Destination Farm offers private half-hour and hour lessons, training rides, group lessons, cross-country schooling, and coaching at events and shows for boarders and ship-in students. We also take horses in for full training. We can help you get your horse started correctly or help to move its training along faster. We are also, at times, available to come to your farm to teach lessons or give clinics.
With three of us here, there is always someone available to meet your training needs. We carefully schedule lessons to ensure that the rings are not overly crowded. Suz and Natalie also work closely with each other on every client’s training so they can easily fill in for each other when needed- whether it be for coaching at an event, giving a lesson, or riding a horse. Meredith is also great at “filling in” for them when needed! She often helps coach the less experienced riders at shows if they are tied up elsewhere at the event. Their methods and philosophy about training / instructing are very similar, which produces seamless continued progress in their students’ training. Whatever your destination with your riding may be, we can help you reach it!
