About us and our lesson program

We have a top-notch staff who is dedicated to teaching students as well as all around excellent horse care utilizing the highest industry standards!
Legacy Farm and Stable's lessons first provide a foundation from which all riders can benefit. Then with improving skills and fitness, the rider can participate in Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing, or Pleasure Riding. Though competition is entirely optional, it is encouraged as a the proving ground for horsemanship skills. All riders, regardless of experience, are required to sign a release form and wear an ASTM-SEI approved riding helmet and foot-wear with minimum 1/2 inch heel and smooth sole. Close fitting clothes and long pants or breeches are encouraged.
Legacy Farm and Stable is dedicated to the promotion of good horse management, classical dressage training, Eventing and show jumping. We bring magic into the lives of anyone that has the love of horses by teaching excellence. Our range of knowledge extends all the way from the most elegant of riding, classical dressage, to the adrenaline rush of Eventing, as well as basic Horsemanship for the pleasure rider.
Our focus has always been families and their horses.

Come and meet Joyce Morgan, our head instructor
Her time spent in Germany with the Dressage master, Ulrick Shickta, was amazing and a tremendous learning opportunity. She then went on to ride with A.L. Lyall in the Yorkshires England, with his Grand Prix Dressage Horses. This was beyond her wildest expectations.
Over the years she have been blessed with the chance to clinic with some of the greats in the horse industry: Hilda Gurney, Jane Savoie, Don Sachey, Bruce Davidson and Daniel Stewart, former USEA Olympic coach, each of them generously imparting their knowledge and experience to riders. Joyce says, "Each one helped me to see the road is never ending but always a glorious experience. A rider with a proper foundation will find lifelong enjoyment with horses".
