At Suddenly Farm we strive to offer lessons in a relaxed, fun atmosphere, to students 4 and up.

We focus on the quality of our lessons, not the quanity - therefore, we do NOT teach large group lessons.
All of our horses available for lessons have dressage training and we also offer schoolmaster lessons for riders who are looking to further their dressage education. 
We have young riders, as well as teenagers and adults - from beginners thru advanced levels. If you or your child has always dreamed of learning to ride a horse, give us a call to set up a visit or schedule a lesson. 

T
raining is provided by Erin Scelba-Johnson, our resident instructor; and Lisa Adkisson-Lott.

Two of her students finished 2nd in USDF Year-End Awards for their Pas de Deux and competed at BLM's and GAIG's. Her students have been very successful in ESDCTA and several smaller GMO's. Erin specializes in continuing education for more advanced riders and those riding our school masters.


Our newest addition, Lisa Adkisson-Lott is returning to Suddenly Farm after leaving us several years ago to marry and have her children.  She taught here at Suddenly Farm for many years when we were located at the "original" Suddenly Farm.  She and her 2 children continue to ride her TB Tucker.
