GraceBPlease join us in welcoming Grace Bottini to Locket’s Meadow! Grace is our new trainer/instructor and will be teaching our riding lessons as well as teaching and coordinating summer programs. Grace has been involved in the Equine Industry since she was six. It started with Summer Riding Programs, led to competing and training with some of the best trainers in CT, attending Cazenovia College majoring in Equine Sciences, to leasing and running a boarding facility and lesson program. Her goal is, and always has been, exposing others to the joy and sense of fulfillment that horses have brought to her. Grace believes in communication being vital to any relationship. “While working with horses, you must learn their language, as they are unable to learn ours. Similarly, when you are working with a student, it is the trainer’s responsibility to find how each student learns, individually.”

She is currently scheduling lessons and can be reached at 203-895-6033.

Every lesson is tailored to fit the goal of the rider. We have lesson horses for all levels and disciplines.
