Training Programs and Client Service

Parkside produces happy, healthy horses and strong riders through its diligent three-tiered training program. We offer complete board and training for each horse and rider together, as well as individually, to help both meet their full potential.  Rider and horse must establish a partnership through trust, communication and abilities for the magic to happen that is Hunter/Jumper competition for everyone who competes in the sport. Morgan and Nora are incredibly skilled rider/horse match-makers!

Our clients participate in regular weekly lessons, clinics, and a fun and challenging show schedule. Horses are given an individualized training program to achieve maximum fitness and responsiveness. They are well-love athletes and we care for them with due respect. Our trainers have taken many horses from green and inexperienced to top ribbons at A-circuit shows. If you’re ready to take that step, we can help you find the perfect horse and create the partnerships of a lifetime!
