Huntseat Riding lessons
Pony Tail Acres is delighted to have Kelsey Seufert Whittle as part of their team of Trainers/Instructors. Kelsey is a Certified Instructor with the American Riding Instructor Association. She is also currently working on her Level Three Hunt Seat Equitation certification with the American Riding Instructor Association, as well as her Level One Dressage Certification.
Kelsey brings with her 18 years of riding experience. She has shown in every discipline from hunter/jumpers to western pleasure, although her riding foundation lies with hunter/jumpers. As a young rider, she mostly enjoyed equitation and was always in the ribbons. Kelsey began acquiring her breaking and training techniques during her teenage years while she was a show groom and assistant show rider of Paint horses and Welsh ponies. Through this experience, she gained insight from top judges nationwide. An opportunity then arose to show Paint horses at nationally recognized events. She has also had the privilege of being invited to be a ring steward at the Northwest Welsh Pony National Final. Most recently, she had the honor of training with Michelle Morris and Yoron Zohar.
In regards to training horses, Kelsey enjoys starting horses and taking them through the pre-greens. Her style incorporates natural horsemanship along with traditional methods according to the horses needs. In recent years, she has had the benefit of taking several young warmbloods to their first shows. Kelsey believes in taking baby steps in training to make a happier more relaxed horse.
Kelsey believes that learning to ride should be fun and rewarding even on the worst days and her teaching style certainly reflects that attitude. Kelseys young students and their parents have been thrilled with both their enjoyment and their rapid progress. She specializes in teaching beginner through intermediate riders, and has experience taking them through 2 foot 6 inch plus jumps.
