Dressage Lessons

I offer classical dressage lessons through fourth level, on your horse or my quiet trained schoolmasters.  I am conveniently located at the intersection of Routes 495 and 2 in Harvard MA.   Quiet indoor and outdoor dressage arenas with excellent footing are available for year-round riding.

Lessons are available from 8:30AM-4:00PM, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. My rates are competitive with high-quality instruction in the New England area.  

Lesson types available:
  • 1-hour private lesson (either ship-in or on one of my schoolmasters)
  • 1/2 hour private lesson
  • Semi-private lesson with another student
  • European-style longe lesson for the development of an effective dressage seat
To inquire further, contact me on 978-772-4908 or rachelmarkelswebber@yahoo.com.  

I look forward to hearing from you!
