Visiting Trainers -  two jumping trainers, and three dressage trainers. Or, bring our own!

Coventry is one of the few stables that allows outside trainers.  We do not want to tell you who to ride with or which farrier or vet to use for your horse....Outside trainers must have insurance!

Sue Stepuson  comes to Coventry every other week to give lessons in hunt seat/jumping.  Lisa Hall comes monthly as well as Robin Birk.  Blaine Orris from Blaine Orris Eventing also trains out of Coventry.

For more information (times, dates and  rates) call or email Kristin.

Pilates for Equestrians - Contact Anita
Pilates is no longer offered at Coventry

Presented by
Comprehensive Peak Pilates Instructor & Equestrian
Anita Buzzy Prentiss

In this introductory seminar, you will learn basic Pilates concepts to enhance your riding experience. Bring a yoga or Pilates mat or thick blanket in order to exercise on the floor. We will continue in following weeks with a Pilates Mat Class geared to equestrians, but anyone can benefit.

Anita is a Fully Certified Comprehensive Peak Pilates Instructor and an avid equestrian in dressage and hunters. She has enjoyed miles of trails, has barrel raced, and won many ribbons at horse shows for over 15 years. After noticing the tremendous positive impact that Pilates made on her riding, she decided to become a trainer, and she loves to share these ideas with her riding friends. She teaches private sessions on specialized Pilates equipment in downtown Pittsburgh and at her own studio in Squirrel Hill.

For more information or to reserve your space in the seminar, contact Anita: or 412.956.3039
