High Knoll Equestrian Center (“HKEC”) is known to produce well rounded equestrians skilled in all aspects of horsemanship, and horses that enjoy their work. We cater to riders age 6 to adult, and we promote camaraderie and education. Our trainers bring their professionalism and enthusiasm to each lesson and training session, using show quality, safe school horses for all levels. High Knoll offers Dressage lessons with a USDF Silver Medalist, beginner lessons, a high-school riding program, and a therapeutic program.

Lessons

Our program provides students with a correct, solid foundation needed to continue their various equine pursuits. We start all beginner riders in a balance seat, moving towards learning the basics of dressage (French for "training"). We offer professional training in all disciplines with serious attention to dressage, which will comfortably lead the rider into all other disciplines. Riders showing exceptional skills on the flat enjoy learning the basics of jumping.  Our lesson program is tailored to each rider so beginners and competitors alike may pursue their goals.

Showing

High Knoll Equestrian Center travels to a variety of shows throughout the year for interested clients. We strive to attend shows to better our riding and to help set goals to achieve in our sport. It is very rewarding to see how many life skills result naturally from the horse show experience: sportsmanship - goal setting - focus on an objective - persistent work ethic towards a goal  - problem solving - responsibility - patience -being aware of  surroundings and able to influence them in a positive way - self confidence and self respect - teamwork values

Training

Our goal in all training is to develop horses to their full potential while they enjoy their work. Our trainer will work with your horse’s individual needs to create a training plan. We use solid groundwork principles believing that they carry over to all under-saddle work, as well as starting all horses in dressage to develop supple, strong equine athletes that can succeed in any discipline. Horses in training at High Knoll get the best care to ensure the horse is at their physical and mental best.

Therapeutic Program

The High Knoll Therapeutic Program is founded on the belief that horses provide unique and innovative opportunities that maximize the therapeutic experience for riders with all types of challenges. We offer a safe and supportive environment so clients of all ages and abilities can have a fulfilling and motivating experience. See our Therapeutic Page to learn more about this program.
