TNC Equine Center

TNC Equine Center provides a wonderful lesson
program at our Dillsburg Facility.  We specialize in
providing you with a safe and educational
experience while learning the appropriate riding
skills in both English and Western disciplines that
are centered around our client's goals.  A rider in
our program may choose to ride a horse of their own
or one of our program horses.  Beginner horses in
our program are known for their quiet dispositions to
help our beginner riders build confidence and learn
the basics of riding.  As the rider becomes more
comfortable with the basics of riding, they will move
to the more advanced horses in our program.  
These horses will challenge the rider and will take
them beyond the basics.
Why Riding Lessons?

Riding lessons give a child self-esteem and focus. Working with horses
provides a healthy outlet for kids in today's world.  Many parents say what
an important role horses have played in their children's lives.  Generally
parents do not appreciate the role of horses until the child enters the
turbulent adolescent years.  It is often too late at this point to get them
started with horses.  We advise parents to nurture their young child's
interest.  Horses will then provide a stabilizing influence for them when
they enter their more difficult years.  Do not lose sight of the fact that the
skills that a child learns can be quickly applied to other life challenges as
well and will stay with the child throughout his/her entire life.  Always
reinforce those activities that will make your child feel competent and
unique.  What can be more confidence-building than to be in control of a
large, strong, potentially fast animal?  TNC Equine Center provides your
child with this opportunity in a maximally-safe, supportive environment.

Melinda Propps is also available to come to TNC Equine Center to provided gaited riding lessons to any boarder who has
a gaited horse.  She can help you if you are experiencing problems such as pace or are just uncertain exactly what your
horse is doing underneath you.  Many people purchase a gaited horse but are disappointed when their horse doesn't
perform the smooth gait they desire.   Melinda has experience training, showing and trail riding gaited horses as well as
teaching the rider how to achieve and maintain gait.  Her passion is to train the gaited horse using the principles of
Dressage and developing the gait without force or the use of long shanked bits. For the past 4 years, she's ridden at the
Pa Horse World Expo to demonstrate the Rocky Mountain Horse breed.  Inquire for more information and pricing for gaited
