About Julie – Owner & Principal Horseback Riding Instructor
Julie Chaffee started Harmony Stables to provide a safe, fun and affordable riding stable where kids and adults can learn to ride horses (English, Western or Bareback!) in a beautiful, private, harmonious environment. We believe that horseback riding is much more than simply learning how to sit on a horse and “control” them. It’s a relationship based on teamwork where the rider and horse work together and form a bond of trust and respect. Only then can we truly call ourselves horsemen or horsewomen!
Horseback riding is a lifestyle for us and our students. We ask our students to groom (brush) and tack (put on the saddle, bridle, etc.) their horse prior to riding to help them form this bond of trust & respect. The relationship between horse & rider begins on the ground and then transfers to under saddle work. It’s a beautiful thing to see our students build confidence in themselves and become a trusted leader for their horse. When it all comes together, it’s like poetry in motion!
A Message from Julie Chaffee:
I have been riding and working with horses since I was a kid. I grew up in Campbell Hall where we had 3 ponies. That was the beginning of my journey with horses. Over the years I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with these majestic animals. My journeys have taken me from working with and training race horses to owning a full service boarding, horse training, lesson facility in Texas. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing instructors and horse trainers. Horses are my passion and working with them and my students is my lifestyle! It is my pleasure to share my 30+ years of experience with you. Thank you for visiting our site and I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your children! ~Julie
