Dear New Rider,
We are so excited that you will be joining us for riding lessons.  Since you have chosen a traditional Hunter/Jumper facility that teaches riding with a progressive edge and classic horsemanship in a focused, positive and safe environment you have taken the first step to being successful. 

From your very first lesson you will get to know all our equine staff that will be teaching you as you work with them in a partnership.  Riders who are part of the Great Escape Stables community learn horsemanship from the ground up.  We strongly believe in self-sufficient horsemen who are not just great riders but knowledgeable horseman.  

We achieve this through private and small lesson sizes, quality lesson horses, a structured program that is goal oriented, an organized and well maintained facility, professional staff that have been working with horses for years and have a strong, reputable background.  We strive to provide our riders with the best in programs, amenities, horse care and customer service in a family friendly/young adult atmosphere.

As the owner and trainer of Great Escape Stables, I look upon GES as a passion, not a job or business.  Horses, Riding and Teaching are as natural to me as breathing.  I love what I do and take pride in our facility, the horses, my own achievements and the achievements of all my riders.  I take a vested interest in all my students and wish nothing more for them then to achieve their goals and to see their happiness when they reach success.  Our riders and horses will always find support at Great Escape Stables.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome you to our barn community!
