If you are looking for a calm, professional, friendly instructor, this is your barn. Chrissy has extensive experience riding, training, and coaching in Europe and she brings her own relaxed and positive teaching style to the rigor of classical discipline. She really goes the extra mile to make sure the clients' needs and the horses' needs are met. The barn is quiet, local, and well -kept. - Olynda D.
Chrissy runs an incredible program for the beginner through to expert level riding. She instills into her students both her mastery of the sport as well her work ethic. Her instruction is wonderful and always engaging. Lessons are tailored to each student's needs. The barn is a quiet and clean facility. The horses are expertly cared for and wonderful to work with. The facilities are top notch with lovely outdoor rings and easily access to trails. I would recommend Chrissy and Core Equestrian to anyone learning to ride or looking to take their riding to the next level. - Kristin A.
Core Equestrian is hands down the best barn I have ridden at. Chrissy runs a beautiful barn and a wonderful program. As each horse and rider has their own needs, Chrissy tailors a riding and training program particularly for them! The barn is in a convenient location and has a lot to offer with trails, dressage and jumping arenas, a walker, and many other amenities. After riding with Core Equestrian, I could not imagine riding anywhere else. - Jenna N.
Excellent one on one attention give to both the rider and horse. Chrissy cares for the horses like her own. Quiet and beautiful outdoor arena, with easy access to great trails! I would highly recommend this training facility! - Blake C.
Little did I know when I picked up the phone to ask for an instructor to give my daughter a few riding lessons, that I would meet one of the people who would have the most profound and positive impact on her life. Chrissy is all of the things I want her to emulate: strong, intelligent, respectful, possessing great integrity, and with a big splash of humor to bind it altogether.
Chrissy is a remarkable trainer - she has the talent as a rider and an instructor to bring her clients and horses to the next level. She is thoughtful about every person and horse in her program, and tailors her approach to suit individual needs and goals. And if you happen to be in the market, she also is proactive, considerate, and well-connected when it comes to finding horses (either temporary or permanent) that are a great fit for each of her clients. Chrissy's dedication to the sport, coupled with a calm and fun approach to how she manages the barn really permeates the program. Core Equestrian is by far the best stable and program I have ever been a part of!

Finding Chrissy and Core Equestrian as an adult beginner rider was exactly what I needed! After making slow progress with other trainers, Chrissy guided me quickly and carefully to an appreciation of the basics of riding and dressage, all the while respecting my goals and busy schedule. The only thing that might exceed Chrissy's ability to ride and train all levels of riders is her love and care of horses. Chrissy helped me to buy my first horse and since, I have watched her provide excellent care and training. In addition to Chrissy, Jenna is very talented in both training riders as well as their horses!
Taken approximately one year apart starting from their arrival at Core Equestrian, these photos show how these horses developed a correct topline and general physical improvement that even an untrained eye should be able to appreciate!
