Crissa Keen-Tessoni has been riding since she was 6 years old. A native of Portsmouth, RI, she has an extensive background in hunter/jumper equitation, dressage, and natural horsemanship. Crissa is currently pursuing a US Dressage Foundation Bronze Medal and plans to show at Third Level this year, in addition to showing and coaching at local hunter/jumper shows and horse trials. She has a Certified Horsemanship Association Level 3 Instructor Certification, and is happy teaching riders of all ages and levels. When she's not teaching lessons, you will find her riding her Zweibrucker mare Mercedes, and riding/auditing in clinics with top riders and trainers from around the world. Crissa is passionate about sharing knowledge and techniques from the highest levels of the sport with her students, and excels at helping riders and their horses to understand each other individually to strengthen their partnership.
We offer amazing week-long summer camps for various ages throughout June, July, and August. Kids and teens learn horsemanship, play games, take lessons, and explore the brook to beat the heat! Activities are customized on a weekly basis to best suit the group.
