Sherri Brown, has been running BrownHill Stable and teaching since 2000. She is a Certified Centered Riding instructor and a PQI (Pennsylvania Qualified Instructor). Sherri feels most comfortable teaching children, but enjoys teaching some very special adults too.
“I feel that one of my strengths is that, having learned to ride as an adult, the struggles of learning to ride remain fresh in my mind. I am not a natural rider, so I’ve had to dissect and examine every aspect of my riding, which I feel gives me wonderful tools for teaching. I love horses, children, to talk and to teach. These loves have all come together to make me the instructor that I am.”
“I’ve enjoyed learning from local instructor and trainer, Debby Hadden as well as internationally know instructor/authors Wendy Murdoch and Susan Harris”.
Sherri enjoys riding her TB/Cleveland Bay, Mr. Darcy.
One of the high points of my teaching “career” was teaching my daughter, Beka, to ride and watching her continue to grow in her riding with Amy, Deb and at College with Cheryl Keller. I love being able to stay home and run this business with my husband Lee, and children Luke (and Izzy), Jacob & Beka.
Mindy Weaver started riding in 2006 here at BrownHill Stable. Her first year, she won the Rising Star Award. Mindy is truly an all around horsewoman and enjoys every aspect of horse care from cleaning stalls to teaching beginner riders. After working all day, you can find Mindy riding her Haflinger mare, Daisy.
Mindy is a huge help here at BrownHill as she schools the newer and more difficult horses and ponies.
