Setting Sun Stable owner and instructor Helen Weeman, brings over 25 years of experience teaching, training and showing in the horse industry. A Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' certified instructor, Helen specializes in gaited breeds but has extensive experience in training all breeds, and teaching all riding disciplines. Our lesson program is custom tailored to suit the rider and horse team, through dressage and natural horsemanship techniques so beginners to upper level riders alike may pursue their individual riding goals. With an eye for detail and the cause and effect relationship between the rider and horse being distinctive features in her teaching of horsemanship she focuses on improving communication between horse and rider. Her ability to convey the importance of proper body position as it relates to communication and ultimately balance of the horse are specific, precise, unifying and often inspiring as she teaches the rider to "feel" the horse and the horse to respond.
Riding lessons are available to anyone interested in horseback riding whether you are 5-years old or 85 -years old, a beginner or an advanced rider. You may bring your own horse or choose to ride one of Setting Sun Stables multi-leveled school horses. Our mission is to provide quality training and instruction for horses and riders while learning responsibility, rider safety, the importance of appropriate horse care practices, proper equitation, and the art of horsemanship. Setting Sun Stable is the place to help you accomplish your equestrian goals and dreams.

In addition to riding lessons, we are happy to offer you experienced coaching, preparedness, and participation at local horse show competitions.
