Joanna Niles works with all her students in a one-on-one learning environment for both athletes - rider and horse based on individual goals. Incorporating her training philosophy into each and every lesson, Joanna's strong belief in rider foundation through a properly developed seat and leg position helps each rider achieve a confident, relaxed relationship with their equine partner. Through education and awareness of opportunities to help horses perform their best, riders can be confident that, with a progressive, encouraging, and focused, goal oriented approach to learning, the next stage of their riding is always within reach.

EquiSTRONG has limited openings available on our Show Team for riders dedicated to advancing their riding skills through all levels of competition. We strive to create a team environment with a strong sense of community and high levels of sportsmanship and horsemanship. Every horse/rider partnership is prepared through individual goals for the show ring. Learning correct basics at home allows each rider to improve and develop their confidence, all while having fun! You can find links to our show circuits and schedules on our Home page.
