Instructors

Greta “Jade” Krafsig

Hello, I’m the owner and head instructor at White Oak Stables. I’ve loved horses my whole life but I didn’t start riding until I was 14 and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve trained in classical Hunt Seat and Equitation most of my life by a wonderfully talented and local instructor, Sandi Diesterhoft. I’ve competed successfully in local hunter/jumper shows, western pleasure shows, hunter paces and eventing. I enjoy working with people of all ages, especially adult beginners, autistic and shy/anxious/fearful riders. I believe learning about horses should be both fun and educational and will teach towards your personal goals and desires.

Teaches on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and some weekends.

Gloria Mullins

She has been teaching dressage/pleasure and eventing for over 40 years. Mrs. Gloria has a huge fountain of knowledge when it comes to horses and the classical principals of horseback riding. She is an avid horse lover and breeder and has taught riders of all ages and disciplines. She focuses on perfecting the basics, paying attention to small details and producing a well rounded and highly technically trained equestrian.

Teaches on Saturdays and Sundays.

Kristin “Kristy” Zimmer

She is the newest member of our instructor team! Kristin is a super friendly and bubbly instructor who is great with kids and making people with anxiety feel calm and comfortable. She does the majority of our beginner lessons during the week and sometimes fills in on the weekends if need be. She loves riding bareback and jumping bareback and got her early start playing polo and riding western.
