Nathanael and Christina are the directors and owners of Simple Times Stables
Christina DeSota nurtured a love of horses throughout her youth, managing a barn for friends and developing her riding skills. An excellent rider with a love for children, she shines at communicating basic skills and knowledge to the youngest members of the farm who come to ride and also enjoys teaching our more mature members more advanced skills in riding. She specializes in teaching western pleasure, english pleasure and all around skill sets for 4H and above. Christina is also one of the coaches for the local Goodrich equestrian team and also shows on the CMHA and Paint circuit with farm clientele.
Nathanael DeSota enjoys working with horses on the ground and in the saddle and is honored to have the chance to assist the clientelle of Simple Times Farm with their horses, especially those that are struggling through bad habits or poor ground manners with their equine partner. Nathanael also breaks out new horses and believes it is very important to establish a firm foundation in proper pressure and release so that your horse can be the best they can be at what they do, whether at home, on the trail, or at the show! Good training always begins with the proper balance of relationship, trust & good boundaries. Call for more details. Nathanael also enjoys working with young people and especially enjoys working the day camp youth & birthday parties + doing the general maintenance around the barn.
