I came to the Oldfields Riding Program in the fall of 2019. At first I was nervous about trying a new stable because I've been at the same stable my whole riding career. I was also nervous about meeting new people, riding completely new horses, and working with new coaches. However, after my first few days that nervousness completely disappeared because of all of the great people, horses, and coaches. I love the riding program at Oldfields. Our program makes you feel like you are a part of a smaller, tight-knit family within the larger OS community. It is a group where people will understand your love and passion for horses. The riding program is kind of like a family away from my family.
Every time I walk up to the barn I feel like I'm no longer on campus. The barn feels like its own world. I love everything about being there. The other girls in the riding program are very sweet. They are really nice and welcoming to new people. I can remember the older riders were really helpful when I was getting used to finding my way around as a new rider.
