Gretchen in the saddle...

In addition to being a competitive rider for many years, Gretchen Mayer also holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in Social Work that give her a unique perspective in helping students overcome their fears, and set and reach appropriate goals in a safe, fun, and supportive environment.

With a deep understanding of child development, Gretchen explains
concepts and techniques at a level that her younger students  can appreciate. For teen riders, she is known to assign "riding homework to be completed between lessons to encourage independence and solidify their educations.

A Hidden Hills resident for over 34 years, Gretchen has developed a reputation of bringing along many riders in the community who have shown successfully in eventing, and excelled in IEL shows for Calabasas High School.

Little Valley Eventers is a three-day eventing barn that offers boarding and instruction for the competitive riders, as well as the beginner or recreational rider.  

Education starts before one steps into the stirrups. Appropriate attire, grooming, feeding principles, tack cleaning, and general horse maintenance are aspects to horseback riding that Little Valley Eventers fosters.  If you are interested in joining our team, please contact us to come watch a lesson and meet the other barn mates!
