Please Note that we do require 24 hours notice for cancellation of lessons. Students are still responsible for payment of missed lessons if proper notice is not given.
Whether your goal is horse showing or being able to control a horse out on the trails, we can help you reach it. Lessons at Zephyr's Way Stable are either taught privately or in groups of two to four. This allows for more individual attention, and for a better learning experience than the large group lessons. A signed liability release is required.
Hunter/Jumper lessons are taught by ARIA certified instructor Caitlin Ashton. Caitlin grew up riding in the Richmond area, and was very active in 4H. She began her education at Virginia Intermont College studying Equine Management and Business. She finished with a BS in Animal Science at Virginia Tech in 2009. She received her instructor's certification in 2008 from ARIA, specializing in Hunter/Jumper and Stable Management. She enjoys teaching her students how to become successful with their horses, and rehabs and retrains rescue horses in her spare time.
Ali was introduced to horses
as a toddler and began lessons shortly after. By nine years of age, she
was an active member of her local 4H, and was showing locally with her first pony. During high
school, Ali helped exercise horses for a local trainer, and began teaching some lessons of her own. After graduating from Powhatan High
School she went on to Hollins University, and was very involved in the
riding program. When she returned from Hollins, she became part of the Zephyr's Way Team! Ali focuses
on teaching the successful communication between horse and rider to students of all ages.
