Horse and Rider Education

Lessons

Eloïse and Blackie

Mikaila is available for lessons all over North and Central Florida. Her goal is always to establish ‘thinking riders’ by simply providing them with the correct tools needed to develop their horses themselves.

Each horse and rider team is individually different with unique goals so Mikaila is always willing to establish a customized program and flexible schedule to suit each pair’s needs.

No matter what type of saddle you ride in, what breed of horse you have or what your goals are, learning to establish a Whole Horse approach will help you make clear progress. Good work is dependent upon partnership and not fancy facilities. Even if you only have a pasture to ride in, Mikaila is happy to work with you.

Hauling in to Mikaila’s facility, or to a local public facility such as Canterbury Showplace, for lessons is also possible.

Mikaila is available to travel anywhere in the world for 2, 3 or 4 day clinics. Working either with multiple riders in groups throughout the day or in an eight rider, daily private lesson format, all clinics include work in hand and theory lectures. Passionate about helping horses and their riders progress, she presents information in an easy to understand and progressive structure.

Mikaila currently maintains a clinic schedule in Nova Scotia, Washington state, Texas and southern California.

Please contact Mikaila about single day arrangements for 4-H and Pony Club groups.

Training

Mikaila has a limited number of spaces available for taking horses into training at her own facility. She is also available to travel to work with training horses at their home facilities which are located in the North Central Florida area.

The training program includes a complete and dynamic work with a goal agreed upon by the owner of the horse beforehand. Mikaila takes horses into training for both starting under saddle and continuing advanced work under saddle. All programs involve comprehensive basics and ground work education. By exposure to many different ideas and experiences, horses in her program become familiar with hauling to other places, social interactions with other horses, their own bodies through managing obstacles and a happy relationship with humans through no-pressure, high-reward activities like tricks, target training and liberty work.
