Bio: My equestrian pursuits began in the 1970s. While on an afternoon drive with my parents we happened to pass by the Canton Equestrian Center then known as the Lazy S Ranch. What 9 year old girl would give up the chance to visit with some horses? In we drove.

Lessons started soon after, closer to home, at Fleetwood Farm on Route 53 in Pembroke, with Carl Catani, who now owns River Wind Farm. A few years later, not content with riding on the flat, I was directed up the street to Friars Gate Farm owned by Julie and Richard Ulrich. Here I was introduced to Show Jumping, Hunters and Dressage.

While attending Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts I was Co-Captain of the riding Team from 1981-1984.

In the years to follow I met Suzi and Jim Gornall and evented through Training Level riding in beautiful open space at Huntington Farm, Stoneleigh Burnham, Groton House and King Oak.

Lately, my instruction is of a more recreational nature. I incorporate some Dressage in all my lessons, jumping for the more adventurous students and an emphasis on harmony and balance with your equine partner.

Bio: I got my first taste of horses when I was a very small child. There were many family vacations where I had the opportunity for pony rides, but when I was 9 years old, I had my first riding lesson and I’ve been hooked ever since!

 Shortly after I graduated from the Equine Program at Norfolk County Agricultural High School I apprenticed under June Phillips who took me under her wing and helped me become the instructor I am today. I’ve been a licensed Massachusetts Riding Instructor #1-03822 since 1998 and have been teaching Centered Riding and Hunter/Jumpers at CEC since 2006.

My lessons are safety oriented as I teach all levels of riders the art of teamwork between horse & rider. 

I also offer special events, ie. Boy & Girl Scouts of America, Boys and Girls Club of America, Pony Parties, Carroll Center for the Blind, Summer and School Vacation Programs and I am the leader of High Flyers 4-H Club since 2005.

 Please send me an email if you’d like more information on any of the group events I offer.

Bio: My passion for horses began at the age of 9 with a small white pony named Wildfire. I began riding at Pine Fall Farm in Central Massachusetts where I competed locally. Moving away, I then joined Spring Tide Farm to compete in the Junior Equitation Medal Circuit.

After high school I attended Cazenovia College as an Equine Business Management Major and rode on their IHSA team for one year before transferring to UMass Dartmouth to get my degree in Marketing. Working as a groom throughout college, I have had the privilege of working for some of the best equestrian facilities in the industry including Louisburg Farm.

After college I purchased my OTTB pictured here, Bruno, from Suffolk Downs and re-trained him as a Jumper. My riding background is in Equitation and more recently in Jumpers but I try to infuse various techniques from a number of disciplines into my instruction to produce a well rounded rider. I absolutely love to teach and ride, there is nothing better!
