Anna Baker Horsemanship


Anna Baker: Instructor & Trainer

A native to San Diego, Anna Baker has 20 years experience with horses
, including over 8 years of professional experience in the equine industry. She has studied in many different disciplines including: Parelli Natural Horsemanship, jumping, dressage, cutting, and team penning to list a few. Her techniques are safe, natural and effective


RIDING LESSONS

Lessons for beginners will mainly focus, but will not be exclusively, on grooming, cleaning and tacking up the horse for riding. If you have already been introduced to grooming, cleaning and tacking up and feel comfortable, you may come 10-15 minutes before your scheduled lesson time to get the horse ready for riding, if the horse you are riding is available.

You should wear long pants (jeans are acceptable), close toed shoes (no slip on shoes) or boots with at least a 1/2 boot heel. If the boot has a zipper or buckle located on the inside of the leg, if must be covered by your pants. Be ready to store any pocket-items (keys, wallets, cell phones) in a safe place *not* in your pants pocket. Your instructor can provide a safety helmet, but if you have your own, please make sure it's for horseback riding! Bike helmets do not provide adequate protection for horseback riding.

Students must be at least 5 years of age to start lessons. Beginner and intermediate levels of riders are welcomed. Riding disciplines include English and Western, with other styles in those disciplines, i.e., jumping, barrels, gymkhana, etc. All lessons are private one-on-one lessons. There are no group lessons available.

If you have not purchased a package, you must pay your instructor 50% of the lesson price. We will use our best efforts to reschedule the canceled lesson but cannot guarantee any accommodation. Please remember -- if you don't show up for your lesson, your instructor still did. Your instructor still needs to be paid, and the horse still needs feed, veterinary and hoof care!
