Macee Morgan Assistant Trainer/Assistant Barn Manager
My name is Tara Kathleen Hynes and I have been working with horses all of my life. I enjoy what I do and would not trade it for any other profession in the world. I wake up early every morning, go to sleep late every night, and spend ALL the hours in-between doing barn chores, training the horses, and teaching lessons. It is an endless cycle and for that I consider myself the luckiest person in the world. There is no place I would rather be then at my barn and I like all my clients to feel the same way!
From a very young age I became very determined and spent many years training with top trainers working to perfect my Dressage. I believe that a strong dressage background can do nothing but assist in the success of each and every other discipline. Dressage is all about being one with the horse, and with that concept being the center of all my riding, I have worked hard to train and compete in many other disciplines.
Whether it be western pleasure, running barrels, jumping courses, trail riding, hunter paces, beach rides, cross country, or eventing!, there is no aspect of the Equestrian world that I haven't worked to educate myself in. I am constantly working to further my training. No matter how many clinics I have attended or how many shows I have competed in I believe there is always something left to learn. I am a certified instructor and take a great deal of pride in my farms, students, and horses.
I have many SAFE, talented, forgiving horses who assist me in teaching my students. I have Horses and Ponies that have excelled and proven themselves in disciplines including dressage, hunter/jumpers, reining, team penning, western pleasure, eventing, and out on the trails. I provide a safe, friendly, relaxed, fun atmosphere to learn in! It is my mission that the barn should ALWAYS be an enjoyable environment.
In addition to teaching lessons I also train horses. I break and train both English and Western horses of all breeds, ages, and temperaments. Over the years, I have trained many horses and brought them along from square one in both English & Western. I enjoy working with green horses, as well as “problem” horses. I believe that with the right amount of patience and training many misunderstood horses can make huge turn arounds! I am willing to help both horse and rider to achieve their goals no matter what direction they wish to go!
I love to teach and train both horses and riders! If you are seeking training for yourself or your equestrian partner please feel free to contact me and get yourself started on the right path!
