My name is Elizabeth Greenberg and I grew up in Connecticut in a house filled with animals; never less than five at any given time. When I was around five years old I began riding lessons and since then, I’ve found an absolute love and passion for the sport and the horses.
After my junior riding career in the hunter/jumper/equitation world ended and I went off to college, I remained an exercise rider and tune-up rider for farms with lesson programs and young horses in need of a more consistent workout schedule.

Post-college, I taught in a lesson program on Saturdays with students ages 9 – 60 years old at every level with a variety of backgrounds. My approach was to blend equitation principals with a strong foundation in flatwork, especially a basic knowledge of lateral work, with the technical aspect of jumping exercises and courses that challenge the rider to think through their entire ride from the first transition to the closing circle.
Now, as I transition back to an amateur, you’ll find strands of my teaching method throughout each post. I hope you enjoy this blog and find it useful for your own riding and training at home. I will try to post frequently about things I learn, and exercises I use, in my everyday training for both my horses and myself. If there’s something you’d like to hear or learn more about, don’t be shy… .just ask!
I am located in Simsbury, Connecticut and would love to connect with you!
