Come ENJOY YOUR HORSES MORE with help from Lisa Travis.

She offers lessons for the rider from beginner to advanced and also offers training for your horse. Lisa’s focus is safety and learning the correct way to ride and handle your horses… all while having fun.

Lisa’s experiences:

I have been riding for 30 plus years. I started riding when I was 9 in Wayland, MA with Andrea Kilburn, an accomplished Grand Prix jumper rider.  Right after my first lesson on a great horse I was hooked.  After a while I was put on her toughest horse and learned how to handle and train all types of horses.

I acquired my first horse shortly after, then went onto ride with Lainey Johnson of Mainstone Stables in Wayland, MA.  With Lainey I have successfully competed in Hunters winning many championships.

I went onto my current discipline in Eventing, still under the instruction of Lainey, where I have competed through Training level with many horses for clients and a few of my own.

I started teaching under Lainey when I was 15 years old then soon after went on to earn my Massachusetts Instructors License.  Simultaneously, I completed through level C3 in Pony Club.

After moving to Sturbridge, MA, I taught at Canterberry Acres, Wild Aire Farm, Stepping Stone Stables, and eventually with the help of Laura Maki we opened and ran our own facility in Brimfield, MA called Halcyon Spring Stables where teaching was a daily pleasure.

I am currently continuing training with Hilda Donahue at Ashmore in Apopka for Eventing and
Jill Hardt at Tristan Oaks in Plant City for Dressage. I feel it is important to always keep learning and improving.

I have completed ARIA certification in Level I Hunt Seat and Eventing.
