Lessons & Boarding

Photo of Kim Sanford, owner of Leg Up StablesKim's riding philosophy is based on common sense and safety - stressing the basics and hard work. Each lesson is considered an opportunity for both the horse and rider to have a positive learning experience. The student is asked to consider the horse as a working partner and to understand how his or her actions affect the horse. Kim also teaches day-to-day equine management.
