Never in my life have I had such incredible and fast results from a trainer. Shawdee is a GENIUS and a major confidence boost for both my horse and myself, while still making us think (sometimes really hard😂). We have done a complete 360 in the lessons we’ve had (just look at that “will never move like a hunter”), we’ve NEVER been rushed and ALWAYS encouraged. We have off property lessons, but the facility is IMMACULATE and if we lived closer, Bear would 100% be there. Top quality services with quality horse and a great friendly team. Moving 600 miles from home had me terrified, but I am extremely lucky to have joined the Ashva team with bear and I cannot wait to see how far we go in the future

Ashva provides great, educational teaching for their students and lovely care for all of their animals. It’s the perfect environment for advancing your skills as a rider and a horse person while also providing your horse the utmost care. Shawdee and Marcelo are the best!

Ashva Equestrian is a wonderful home for our horse. I really appreciate that the care is meticulously fashioned for our horse’s individual needs. We have been boarding him at various places in three different states for the last 23 years, and he has never been more comfortable than he is at Ashva. We feel very fortunate to have our horse with Shawdee Rocha at Ashva.

I’ve only had one lesson so far, but I was blown away by her ability to connect with me as a rider and teach me in a way that acknowledged what I was struggling with while encouraging me to push just a little bit past my comfort zone. The result was measurable improvement after just one ride, and I can’t wait to see what else I can achieve in her lesson program!
