Care Acres Services

Dressage, Working Equitation, Ground Work

50 minutes of private instruction

$50/session
  • Private instruction in Dressage, WE obstacle work, basic ground work and manners, and liberty fundamentals. Focus is on obtaining a horse that is light and in self carriage while maintaining activity and impulsion from behind. Whether you’re planning on just riding the trails or entering the show ring, learn how to get your horse supple and responsive to your aids and working in balance so he is suitable for many types of disciplines. The types of gymnastic exercises and riding I teach will make your horse strong and able to use his body correctly which leads to a long and healthy life.
  • If you don’t have your own arena I have a couple of haul in options at arenas in Brush Prairie and Ridgefield, WA. Haul-in fees are $10-15.
  • Individual lessons done at barns outside the Brush Prairie, Battle Ground, Ridgefield area will require a minimum of 2 lessons or 2 hours and a travel fee. Contact me for more details.

Show Support & Coaching

Get Your Winning Game On

$30/ class

Do you need some help and support at a show? It’s always nerve-wracking being at a show but it helps when you have someone experienced with the showing routine and familiar with you and your horse to help guide you. I offer coaching before your class, watch and photograph/film you during your class, and review your performance after the class.

Equine Consultation

By phone or In-person

$25 – $45

Are you a first time horse owner? Need some basics in horse care, management, equipment use, or facilities set up? I can help guide you through the process of owning and keeping your horse healthy. I can even help you select the right horse based on your experience level.

  • Consultation can be done over the phone for $25/hr. Payment would need to be made via Venmo prior to the first call. 
  • In person consultation or horse buying help is $45/hr. Depending on location a travel fee may apply.

Testimonials

…if you’re looking for a truly quality horse trainer, who produces happy, healthy, well adjusted, thoughtful, educated, confident, obedient, friendly, reliable, highly rideable and handleable horses, look no further, Adrienne Ray is your gal! One of the things I love most about Adrienne as a trainer is that she’s always learning too! Both from peers, and the horses themselves. And, she absolutely adores horses. That might sound so simple and obvious, but I assure you, there are plenty of “trainer’s” out there who couldn’t care less about the horses themselves. The great trainer’s seem to love horses above all else, and it’s that passion that drives them to learn better and do better for each and every horse. Adrienne is one of those trainer’s… One of the great ones.

Adrianne Buschling, Rooted in Love, Equine & Canine Bodywork @bodyworkbyab

Adrienne is an excellent teacher. She communicates clearly to ensure the students understand the exercises, visualization and feel that is being asked for. She is very encouraging and supportive of both horse and human.
