• Proven, Positive & Encouraging Riding Instruction and Training


    Teaching at equestrian centers in Bucks and Montgomery County, PA and traveling nationwide for clinics to share a winning and

    uplifting style of horsemanship.


    About Us

    Ledyard Equestrian offers classic American horsemanship for hunter, jumper and equitation riders and their horses. My style is gritty, fun and spans over

    two decades in equestrian sports.


    If you are a rider local to me in Bucks or Montgomery County, I personally invite you to come train with us as a ship-in or a boarder, and I will also travel to your location of choice. I welcome competitive riders of all ages, as well as those graduating from one of our area's awesome lesson barns. We have very competitive rates and a variety of options available for both horse and rider.

    Horses and ponies are also available for affordable full and partial lease or sale.

  • Why Ledyard Equestrian?

    I know there are are a lot of trainers for you to choose from, and each of us certainly have our own special gifts. To help you decide if I am the right fit for you and your horse, I would like to share with you some background on my experience.

    For over twenty years I have made my living in the horse business. I have been blessed to work with wonderful students and horses, many of whom I have been with for years. I am a competitive person by nature, but always seek to find the fun in horse sports and the training that goes along with it. While I am tough on details and have a disciplined approach, I have found success by being encouraging, positive and by communicating in such a way that lifts a person up.

    I can quickly fix problems in horses by either getting on them or by explaining it from the ground to the rider; I have learned this by spending years on the road showing sales horses and competing in the schooling divisions to prepare them for their next owner. As an example for my young clients I continue to learn; working with some of the best coaches and horseman our sport has ever known. For the hunter and equitation riders, my eye is sharpened by officiating at horse shows regionally and across the country. As a licensed official with the USEF, I receive unique training that keeps me up on trends in the industry, while surrounding me with professionals that make me a better horseman. I judge for many prominent Universities and Colleges for intercollegiate competition(IHSA), as well as the Interscholastic Equestrian Association. (IEA)

    Along with my certification and licensing, I also undergo regular "Safe Sport" training.

    Reach out to Ledyard Equestrian today. I promise I will do everything I can to keep you safe, having fun and enabling you and your horse to be your absolute best.
