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 five. This allows for more individual attention, and for a better learning experience than the large group lessons. A signed liability release is required.

Ceara began riding at age 2. She participated in both 4H and Pony Club. Ceara has always loved caring for and riding horses and her interest in teaching developed when she began introducing her nieces and nephews to her ponies at home. She is comfortable teaching children through adults at the beginner and advanced beginner level.
As a student, Ceara believes there is always room for improvement and that the relationship with her mount is paramount to good riding. She has had instruction in hunter/jumper and dressage and continues to receive instruction.
As an instructor, Ceara facilitates the horse-rider relationship through good horsemanship and effective riding. She is aware that riders have different goals in their riding and she will help each rider develop at their pace with just enough “push” to encourage improvement!
