Alex is a talented and kind trainer & has helped me and my horse learn and progress so much. He knows the right exercises to do to achieve great results while making it fun at the same time.
The first working student experience I had was with O'Neal Equestrian. Ellie and Alex were both professional and patient while I was learning barn care and during lessons. Great environment that I would recommend to anyone!
Ellie made the process of trying and purchasing a great horse incredibly easy. I can't say enough how much our family loves Sterling!
My friend and I brought our horses for a two week stay at Redtail Ridge South with O'Neal Equestrian and we couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of instruction and facilities. Ellie is a kind, knowledgeable, and effective instructor who easily reads your horse and your riding style to best assist you with your goals. We made huge progress on the flat and over fences while training with her- it was a perfect jump start to the season! Both Alex and Ellie are wonderful people, horse trainers, instructors, and hosts. If you ever get a chance to have a lesson or stay at their facility, I would highly recommend it! We will be returning in the future!
This spring I had the privilege of staying and training at O'Neal Equestrian in Ocala, Florida. Not only do Alex and Ellie run a world-class facility, but they do it with generosity and kindness. During my stay I had the opportunity to work with Ellie on both of my horses, in all three phases. Her patient and insightful teaching style worked wonders with both of my sensitive mares. After leaving for home we stopped in Lexington, Kentucky to attend Spring Bay Horse Trials. It was Ellie's voice I heard in my head as I successfully navigated both of my mounts around their first show of the year. I am so thankful for the experience of staying and training at O'Neal equestrian, and I cannot wait to return next year!
