My name is Nicole Felts and I have been instructing for approximately 6 years and I have been riding for over 10.
I have instructed previously for a number of years at J-Mar Stables and Hawks Hollow Farm and I have ridden with Kathleen Gowl-Almony, a well-known instructor in the Baltimore County area in Maryland. Very soon, I am hoping to join the Towson Equestrian Team and ride with them. Horseback riding, like any sport and profession, is a constant learning process and I enjoy educating myself in some new aspect all the time.
I have taught both children and adults, beginners and intermediate riders. I can accommodate any rider's needs and I am very efficient in helping riders overcome fears and/or phobias and build their confidence in the horse and themselves. I am consistently researching new methods for working with specific cases to accommodate the student in the best way possible.
I am always willing to work with both the horse and rider if the rider owns their own horse and is having behavioral issues, jumping issues, etc. I have been working with green (young/inexperienced) horses for a number of years now so I am able to provide training tips and aid to anyone who takes lessons with me.
I am also available for coaching/riding at any shows for my students.
The farm at which I am currently instructing is called Flying K Farm. For more information on this farm, please contact me!
