Kristin has extensive experience teaching a wide variety of riders including first time beginners as well as many advanced riders.  Children and adults enjoy the progression of their equestrian skills in our program.

Our students an clients are welcomed to participate in our educational clinics.  We offer these services as a way for our riders to improve and advance their horsemanship skills.

Beginning riders learn horsemanship through hands on education activities such as safe handling of horses and ponies, grooming, tacking up, bathing, correct terminology, breeds and colors of horses.

As students progress they will also gain more advanced knowledge to properly care for their horse or pony with an education in nutrition, health care and soundness.  We work closely with our veterinarins and farriers in ensure the best care for our horses.  We encourage our students to learn via literature, video, and hands on clinics.

Triple Bar Farm has wonderful school horses and ponies who have taught many students how to ride and show.  We offer a very affordable in barn horse and pony lease program to provide students the opportunity to practice and show.
