There are several teaching options available for riders and their horses. Lessons can be private or group sessions. Private lessons are about 45 minutes while a group lesson could be 60-90 minutes. For first time lessons we recommend private sessions. Generally speaking, lesson subjects focus on dressage, show jumping, and cross country riding, but also can include ground work, gymnastics/footwork, and horsemanship. C. A. Eventing does not have school horses or lesson horses. Lessons should be conducted on the riders' personal horse(s).
Jumping at C.A. Eventing has truly been one of the greatest joys in my life!! I look forward to each opportunity and believe my horse loves it there as much as I do!
Cathryn Alexa Brekken is a certified PEMF practitioner. PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy. Basically PEMF stimulates damaged cells in a way that makes the cell walls more permeable; letting waste out and nutrients in. This technology is incredible and FDA approved for a vast array of treatments to include bone regrowth and the treatment of anxiety and depression. C. A. Eventing now welcomes Bemer Group USA as a new PEMF modality making the technology more available to horses and riders alike!

I absolutely loved coming out to cross country school on the new course at Stony River. The course is well set up with good footing and an appropriate amount of terrain (enough hills to practice but nothing that is going to make your horse come up sore the next day). My favorite part were the adjustable fences including the skinny brushes--we are preparing for a move up to training level and they were great to practice on. We will definitely be back and thrilled to have another xc schooling option close by!
