Training & Lesson Program ...
Nash Hill is pleased to offer our clients top quality instruction and training from our professional and experienced riding staff. Our trainers have years of experience showing and riding. They have centered their lives on horses even majoring in Equestrian Studies programs at well known universities.  If you have ever dreamed of riding or need a experienced professional to help you with your training goals our instructors will guide you and your horse toward your personal best. 
Heather came to Nash Hill in 2013 and our lesson program has flourished under her direction.  Her ability to provide fun, safe and progressive lessons has lead our students from basic riding to the world show ring. She is an outstanding teacher and instinctively knows how to coach our students and their horses toward their personal best. 

As a trainer Heather prides herself on building a solid foundation for each horse in her training program. She consistently and gently guides each horse toward being a successful and confident horse no matter what the discipline. She blends the relationship she develops with the horse with the owners goals and together they work toward developing a solid team.
