Mary McKiernan:
Owner/Head Trainer

Mary has been involved in horses for more than
30 years, successfully showing
hunter jumpers since her childhood.

She is a Central Michigan University Graduate,
and taught 8th grade while pursuing  her riding and training career.  

Mary's professional equine career started
horsemanship first and foremost.  

Her years working in the middle school atmosphere, prepared her to teach
her  riding students in a positive approach, and the understanding that each
student  needs to be taught based on their learning  style.

Mary also believes in continuing in her professional development, and
continues  to work with accomplished, international trainers,  to continue to
bring in different  ideas and to stay current in the   industry.
