About Katie

I have been riding since I was 8 so about 10 years now. I am currently studying business at the University of Rochester with plans to major in marketing and finance. My favorite part of teaching is sharing what I love with others!

About Jayme

My name is Jayme and I have been riding since I was 4. I currently do not have a horse but I have been catch-riding horses for Emily and on my friend’s horses. I am currently a senior at Bonita Vista high school and I plan on studying business or psychology when I go to college. I love teaching both kids and adults because it makes me happy when I see the smile on their faces after their ride, and just knowing that for most, this is the highlight of their day.

About Alexis

I’ve been riding since i was 10 so about 8 years now. I have two horses on property, Gracie and Cooper. I’m a senior at Otay Ranch High-school and plan to major in business in college. My favorite part about teaching is seeing my students improvement and the happiness it brings them to work with these amazing animals.
