These lessons last around 60 minutes and will focus mostly on flat work at the level identified for the time you book. You will be taught by Abigail Gordon, a life long equestrian specializing in dressage and eventing disciplines. She has trained for multiple programs including Vershire Riding School in Vermont.
After completing her undergrad at Barnard College in NYC, she managed and taught lessons at a dressage barn outside of Burlington, VT, under the guidance of Lisa Boyle Kulski who she traveled with to Wellington, Fl in the winters.
Eventually Abigail began her career as a high school teacher while continuing to give riding lessons and training her mare through Level 3 dressage. In recent years Abigail as picked back up with her love for cross country riding and joined MRC on many hunter paces.
About Rounded Crest Farm
Run by Galloping Guru, this state-of-the-art equestrian facility sits on 160 acres of rolling land with panoramic views. There are 2 large outdoor rings with rubber and sand footing, a cross country schooling field and a large heated indoor arena with manicured sand and fiber footing. The indoor has a viewing room, kitchenette and bathroom with wifi available for riders!
The property has been the backdrop three times for movie and TV productions and is just minutes to the Village of Pawling, a quaint upstate, bucolic 18th century village. The charming village offers fine dining, boutique shops, antique stores, cultural attractions and a farmer's market every Saturday from June to September. Pawling has its very own Metro North station stop, just 90 minutes by train or car to NYC.
