Welcome to the Hylee Training website, hopefully we can help you start, finish or continue your horse experience. We focus mostly in English disciplines and welcome beginners through experienced riders who want to learn to ride and jump or those who enjoy trail riding. For us riding is an experience and a learning process where we learn about the horse while enjoying our time together.

Trails

We`ve launched our program!

In 2017 we will be offering trail rides to the public. We have trail rides for beginners and up.  We have 3 or 4 rides that will go out each week.

Beginner Trails are Mondays at 2pm (every week) and Friday at 2pm (every other week) The Intermediate trail goes out every other Friday at 2pm (every other week). Each ride is 2 hours in length and $90 per rider. Each trail ride can take a maximum of 6 people out with our lovely guide. All rides travel thru the the Mission Interpretive Forest on one of our trusty steeds. All rides have some trot and or canter but it is up to the decision of your trail guide if it is safe to do so.

Trail horse leasing

We do lease our trail horses. They are not rented. Those who lease trail horses must have previously ridden with us and must be approved. All must have previous riding experience.

Lease documents must be signed outlining rules of the leasing.  Horses will be available to be booked on in advance and is subject to lesson schedule. All horses have been trained and have experience on our trails. Many trails are located from our barn and leasors get priority when trailering to  off site to trails.

Trail horse leasing is $200 per month and riders can ride up to 2X per week. Its ideal for former horse owners who miss riding, riders who are find horse ownership too expensive, those thinking about buying a horse and those who would like company on the trail. Current leasors will have access to our growing community of trail riders and can join in on those already going.

Testimonials

Below are some of the testimonials from our current/past clients.

I have enrolled by 6 year old daughter &  myself in riding lesson at Hylee this August. I realized that Alicia was dealing with a huge influx of bookings but nonetheless I had no problem booking our lessons within a couple of emails. Our first lesson was amazing – the horses were very mellow so both my daughter and I were at ease and wanting more. Alicia was friendly and professional.

I started riding at the age of 47 in July of 2010. I have had nothing but the best coaching from both Alicia and Megan. It can’t be easy teaching an old dog new tricks. (well, any tricks…I had no riding experience) but with their passion and immense patience, the keep managing to get me to the next level! The love, care and compassion shown to all the horses is what I really love at Hylee.

Alicia is an amazing coach! I have learned so much from her in a year in a half it’s almost unbelievable! She is very honest and supportive and teaches you not just how to ride , but how to solve your own problems with your horse, and is always more than happy to offer advice! She is fantastic!

Heather Murray

Alicia is an excellent coach! She is very knowledgeable, provides clear explanations, and always has helpful advice. She is able to find just the right balance between pushing her students to the next level and refining their existing skills.

Kirsten Roberston

Alicia brought my very green QH gelding along from barely trotting to a steady walk, job, lope in just the flash of an eye.  He is now home with an excellent base of skills that I can build upon without fear. It was well worth the price and the 1200 km I had to send him. I’d do it again with another horse.

Donna McKay

Hylee Training is the best! Alicia Harper, Megan Kenney, and the rest of the Hylee team are fantastic and make everyone feel like part of the family when they are at the barn. As a beginner I’ve felt welcomed from the beginning and feel like I’m learning more than just how to ride a horse. In everything I’m taught Alicia and Megan make sure I know the reasoning behind it and there is no question of mine that goes unanswered. I can’t wait to develop my skills with Hylee Training and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone – you won’t regret it!

Jamie

I have been with Hylee Training for about a year and a half now. As a person who entered the riding scene with absolutely no knowledge about horses, Alicia (Owner of Hylee Training) has introduced me to the culture of riding through a very comfortable and welcoming learning experience. Alicia is a very encouraging instructor who motivated me through this physically demanding sport. This is particularly important as it can get discouraging at first due to the amount of soreness one can get as new muscles are developing. Alicia’s lessons are very comprehensive, and the hour always seems to pass by too fast due to the amount of fun I have. In addition, Alicia has a flexible schedule which is something important as school can get busy sometimes. To conclude, Hylee Training is definitely a significant factor in my newly developed interest for horseback riding and all the best wishes to this awesome place!! =)
