I met Erin in July 2016, She has knowledge beyond her years. Her horsemanship techniques work so well with all my ponies. Erin has brought my ponies to a place they have never been before, CONFIDENT. The miraculous turn around has been just short of a miracle. Love everything she brings to our lessons and applies to the horses and humans of course. She is honest, dependable, loves the horses and she enjoys what she does with them. I currently have 4 horses she works for me. Aging from 1 1/2 to 18 years old. She's been a god send for me and my horses.
When Erin came to us I had been dealing with Buddy sour, Barn sour, Ranch sour issues, could not even walk one of them up to our Arena area without having some kind of confrontation or scary unmanageable situation happen. Then when I got to the arena, I would do a few groundwork/flatwork excercises and try to ride. YES Try to ride. Most of the days did not go or end very well. I would give up and that is how the story goes. I didn't have the knowledge to get my ponies where they needed to be with the proper leadership skills. Today we can bring two at a time, three at a time or one at a time to the arena area with no issues. We have ridden all of them off the property.
You will be so pleased you hired Miss Erin, it will be the best investment provided for your pony. They will be thanking you.. We love Miss Erin Long!!

Erin started working with me and my 4 year old Quarter Horse in October and we both love her! Her training technique makes so much sense and my little guy is learning so fast! Erin is everything I was looking for in a trainer. Erin's knowledge and experience is incredible. She is honest, dependable, smart, and easygoing. I would highly recommend Cairdeas Horsemanship and Erin Long!
We look forward to continuing our lessons,

Erin is an amazing instructor and trainer. She is very in tune to both the horse and the rider. She continues to challenge you while giving you the confidence to become a better rider. She does not talk down to you. Highly recommended her.

What students have to say
I hit a huge learning curve today. Like, I smacked into a wall and then immediately began accelerating vertically. The lesson was very fun, Erin proved to be an amazing instructor and explained many concepts that will go on to further my capabilities as a rider throughout the rest of my career.
