Lessons

Stone’s Throw Farm is a training and lesson program which caters to both adults and children of all level of eventing and dressage.  Many opportunities to participate in clinics, X-C camps, and X-C schoolings are offered periodically.  On-site X-C schooling available.   Every student is able to customize their lesson and training schedule to suite their individual needs.
Unlike most training programs, training rides and lessons are all conducted by Sarah and not a working student or assistant.  Through many years of working with young horses, one of Sarah’s specialties is starting young/ green horses slowly and correctly.  School horses are also available!  Rates are for training/ rides out of Make Your Mark Stables in the Eugene, Oregon area.  Travel fees may apply.
