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.

Position Available: Weekend Riding Instructor

Are you creative, good with people, have a passion for learning and experience with horses? We’re looking for a riding instructor to teach English (hunter/jumper and low level dressage) on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30am to 4:30pm with an hour and a half for lunch. We specialize in adult beginners, plus sized riders and people with fear and anxiety so a calm, patient and encouraging teaching style is required. Must have reliable transportation, at least a year of riding lesson teaching experience, be comfortable bringing horses in/out, and be able to help riders tack/groom/bath/pick feet. Having your own insurance or experience with therapeutic riding is a plus but not required. $15 an hour, paid bi-weekly. If you’re interested in this position please contact Jade.
