Here at Woodside we train horses and riders for show-jumping competitions involving hunters, jumpers and equitation. Our training principles are drawn from the American Forward System of Riding for Hunters and Jumpers. With years of combined experience and dedication to continued education we have found a training program that is ideal and adaptable to a variety of horses and riders. We believe in developing  a strong foundation in basics for our riders and believe the basics are paramount to the riders continued improvement. We follow a systematic, disciplined, and tailored approach that will enable each rider to achieve their goals.  Following these principles along with consistent training of both horse and rider is the key to success.
