“A Dream to Ride Can Come True”
Olivia Ducker - Owner, Operator and Lead Instructor
Olivia knew early on that “horses” would be her career. The desire to share her passion with others is what led her to seek the proper education to teach. In 2009 Olivia graduated with honors from Meredith Manor International Equestrian College in Waverly, West Virginia. At Meredith Manor, she received the title of Riding Master III and was certified as a Riding Instructor. In 2011 Olivia received an associate degree in Equine Science from West Virginia University. Olivia’s goal is to teach proper riding techniques and skills in the student’s choice of either English or Western Disciplines. In addition to riding, she also wants students to learn proper horse care, grooming, tacking skills, horse anatomy, safety, and most of all a unique confidence found only in the presence of a horse.
Makenna Parker - Instructor and Co-Director of Day Camp
Makenna is a 2023 honor graduate of Isothermal College an associate degree in Equine Science. A long-time student of Olivia, Mekenna shares the same passion for horses and a love for sharing knowledge and the joy of riding.
