Finding the Light So many of our equine friends are used, misused, or abused. They give their hearts to their owners, serve them well, but often, when their health fails, are cast aside, treated as useless, or worse. This could have been the case for our beautiful Butterscotch. She became totally blind earlier this year. She stopped eating, shrank down to skin and bones, was literally wasting away.
Luckily, her owner knew Regina Ennis, and so Butterscotch found her way to Breezy Meadow. She was placed in a pasture with other horses, one of whom befriended her. Her name is Star and she has become Butterscotch’s ‘seeing eye horse.’ They eat together, roam around together, hang out together. It is wonderful to watch. Butterscotch has gained weight, and has found purpose again. Regina has nursed her back to health, and uses her for riding lessons, both in the arenas, and out about the grounds. Regina recognized that this lovely, sweet horse could still be useful, that she had so much more to give. Many of her students ride Butterscotch. They learn to navigate and communicate clearly because they have no other choice, Butterscotch needs them to!
I rode this horse today for the first time and was very moved by the way she completely trusted me not to lead her into a wall. It must take a great deal of faith for this beautiful animal to propel herself around the arena, through doorways, gates, and around the grounds with as much confidence as a ‘seeing’ horse. And it took a great deal of faith for Regina to trust that this horse could still teach willing students the joy of good horsemanship. Faith is a beautiful thing!
Don't live with fear. Just Take A Chance and Live your life as a true horse rider. You will discover courage and strength by learning how to be a true horseback rider.Whatever you do dont look back even if there is a ice cream truck behind you and doesnt matter what people say dont listen to them but always listen to your instructor no matter how hard she is on you they always have a soft heart deep down.

The Nervous Rider You really want to do this! But you are so nervous, you keep playing disastrous scenarios in your head until you psych yourself out. Time to go for it! You are not getting any younger, and this is a lifelong dream of yours. Your “Horse Journey” needs to begin! You need an instructor with just the right balance of care, patience, high standards, integrity, strength, no nonsense mentality, and (did I already say?) patience. Regina Ennis is that person. She cares enough to make you do it until it is done correctly, no matter how long it takes. And yet she finds a way to end each lesson on a successful note, and let you know that you really did achieve something. Regina will be both sympathetic and empathetic to your needs. However, she will make certain that you learn to do all things involving horses the CORRECT way. This insures your safety, and well as that of her horses, and herself. She will calm your fears, and help you find your inner self confidence, which you sometimes find so elusive. Safety comes first with this instructor, then skill and confidence building. Regina is a very gifted instructor/trainer, with a lively personality, and a heart of gold. You have found the teacher you need. It is time to begin! I’m glad I did!
Three years ago, due to unfortunate circumstances, I had to find a new riding instructor. I found Regina Ennis and began riding under her tutelage. It was most fortunate for me. She has helped me in so many ways. She is an excellent encouraging teacher and has helped my riding both technically and mentally. My confidence has grown and I’ve been able to enjoy lifetime memories like challenging trail rides, beach rides and even a ride and canter in the snow. Regina is kind and giving and I’m proud to have her as a teacher and friend.
Regina has an innate connection with horses. She jumped on my mare and within ten minutes told me all about her past training as well as her strengths and weaknesses--all correct, because I know her previous owner. Within one lesson she taught me how to correct my horse's most problematic habit--something that has plagued me for a year. When you are on a trail ride with Regina or are taking a lesson, she doesn't just teach you 'shift your weight here' or 'move your leg there'. She helps you understand what is happening from the horse's perspective. She doesn't bully or force horses to do what she wants--she convinces them it was their idea!

Regina has been caring for my horses for several years. And my daughter took her very first pony ride with her six years ago. She is someone who truly loves all creatures, but is so incredible with horses. My mares have participated in lessons, trail rides and camps with Regina, and they are always happy and loved. She has a great knack for helping her student riders gain confidence and knowledge, and she really cares about each one of them. She has taken countless riders from their first pony ride to competitive shows. Whether you ride english, western, or not at all....Regina can take you from your first ride to being a confident jumper! She also does the best trail rides!!! So much fun!! And the facilities at the barn are top notch!!! Can't say enough about Regina and Breezy Meadow Equestrian! I highly recommend this knowledgeable horsewoman and her program to absolutely anyone! Give her a call! You will be so glad you did!
What a terrific ride today! Regina, I have to tell you how many times I've thought that I'm so thankful I found you. Don't ever underestimate the gift you give others. For me, you have taken a 59 year old woman who knew nothing about horses and instilled confidence that I'll be able to do what is needed to learn to ride. I have a long way to go but I'm getting there! I learn something
every time. When I leave I feel positive, confident and that I have accomplished something. And I have fun! I'm grateful for the time spent at Freedom Farm-for the learning, nature, peace and just being with you and the horses. It's my calm spot in a hectic life-very therapeutic!
Not everyone who calls themselves a teacher can teach. You're a wonderful teacher. You are energetic, positive, creative, fun and incredibly competent. And if that was not enough, you communicate your deep respect and love for horses and horsemanship. And it's obvious you want to share that and instill it in others.
I feel it's important that if we have good thoughts about others, we pass them on. And so I am. Thank you again, for your generosity of spirit and heart. And for giving so much more than a lesson.Always,Lois Martin
