Effective Coaching

Building on our philosophy, horse shows are an opportunity to showcase our students’ horsemanship and sportsmanship skills.

We choose our travel and local show schedule to align the Finals we attend based on the riders’ finances, qualifying ability, Points, Goals, current skill, horse, and the division in which the student competes.

Every year, we evaluate riders and match their level and skill to the following finals: MHC, FPHA, WPHA, CHSA Finals, CHJA finals, Pony Finals, Jr. Hunter Finals, Marshall and Sterling Finals, Devon, Capital Challenge, New England Finals, Maclay Regionals, Maclay Finals, and USEF Finals.

Michele co-trains with Donald Stewart throughout the show season. Early on in 2019 Don was inducted into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is focused on teaching our students horsemanship and sportsmanship. To be a teacher is both a gift and a privilege. At Well-A-Way Farm we cherish the belief that by providing this foundation we can equip our students with a maturity and self-confidence applicable to a life not limited solely to horses. This philosophy, we believe, will help them establish and then achieve their goals on and off the horse.

Professional Development at WAWF

Well-A-Way is not only an educational forum for students, we also believe that continued education for the staff helps to promote our philosophy in horsemanship and good riding. Two times a month the staff participate in Professional Development Classes with Michele or join in the many clinics offered at the farm.
