Alison McCallum - Owner/Trainer

Horses have been a part of Alison's life since she was a young girl. She began as a student of Leslie Desmond, famous author and horsemanship coach and was an active member of the United States Pony Club . During her high school years Alison was a working student for Virginia and Jack Leary, in Litchfield, CT.  At the age of 18 Alison became a freelance instructor and a full time employee at Lost Run Farm, helping the Leary's care for their horses, as well as riding and competing clients' horses.
In 2003, Alison started Oakendale Farm LLC, where she helps students and horses of all ages and levels create successful partnerships. Alison's teaching philosophy is that all her students feel comfortable and successful in their riding as well as have a clear understanding of the building blocks that are necessary to succeed.
Throughout the year, Alison enjoys coaching her students at both schooling and recognized dressage shows, horse shows and horse trials.​
