Testimonies from Students
"My lessons at Paradise Farm began in April of 2015. My mother took me and my new horse, Ellorree, to Paradise for some much needed lessons. Lellie began teaching me how to be effective and RIDE BETTER.
We only had lessons about twice a month since we live hours away and school was so demanding. I would stay the weekend and have a couple lessons each day to build on previous skills. Lellie clicked with me, understood my goals, and more importantly, understood my horse. I always come home with clear goals for the next lesson.
Recently, she has taught me to use my seat and body to change length and speed of stride which has been useful in all of the horse. From the young to the experienced horses, it is a major tool used help balance them. Each lesson adds and improves thIe tools that I have in my "tool box".
It is my second summer with Lellie and I am now one of her working students. I get to ride many horses and learn lots of things on and off the horse. I am grateful to be working with such a talented instructor and rider.
We've gone from Starter level to Training level in about a year and are qualified for the American Eventing Championships. I couldn't have done this without the help of Lellie Ward. Riders and horses at any level will benefit from her experienced, thorough instruction."

Such a pleasure to see Lellie train my lovely New Forrest pony mare and give her such quiet confidence in everything she is learning...Dressage, Stadium/XC jumping, trail riding in the woods, trail obstacles, and possibly fox hunting this fall. Yippee!
I am so excited Lellie is helping me both regain my confidence and become a better educated rider in the coming months. I am thrilled being taught by such an understanding and supportive trainer in a fun and relaxing atmosphere which in turn helps me learn and ride better.
