Training with Linda Lee-Bower mixes the best of classical training with natural horsemanship techniques
Linda Lee-Bower, owner of Woodridge Farm, is a Montoursville native with more than thirty six years of riding experience. Teaching professionally since 1996, she offers her students an enjoyable approach to learning, always putting safety first. Linda specializes in teaching young and beginner riders the basics with imaginative and engaging exercises, giving them a solid foundation to build on in a supportive environment. More advanced students also thrive on Linda's easy going teaching style, learning in a correct and positive way.
Linda's background encompasses many disciplines: starting out showing Quarter Horses, she has competed successfully in Western Pleasure, Hunt Seat, Hunter/Jumper and Dressage, Reining, Trail, Ranch Horse and Sorting. She has the experience to help you become a better rider, while having lots of fun along the way.
Linda has ridden under the guidance of Walter Zettl, Carel Eijkenaar, Jo-Anne Young, Diane Sept, Peggy Cummings,
Dr. Michael Guerini, Patrick King, Charles and Michle Pellham and Jillian Kreinbring. She trained earlier in her riding with Cia Reis and Judy Newvine-Croon (AKA, Judy the Great!), who Linda feels gave her good solid basics to build on and the competitive edge she needed. She believes that continuing to educate herself brings back more information to her students. There is always something new to learn… Linda continues to learn from top trainers in the US.
