We have staff on premises 24-7.
Chantelle Lewis joined the BTC team in January and we are so excited to have her! Of course, her reputation for turning out great horses and riders preceded her, as she has coached many National Champion, Reserve and Top Ten as well as Regional Champion, Reserve and Top Five riders to the winnerâ€™s circle. She has coached riders and trained winning horses in all disciplines, from halter, showmanship, western pleasure, country/english pleasure and hunter pleasure. She and husband Dennis ran Lewis, LTD in Texas successfully for years before agreeing to make the move to join forces with us. Chantelle is known for her patience and ability to communicate, which are valuable attributes in an instructor. Additionally, she strives to teach each student not only how to sit on a horse, but to be a good horseman.
Chantelle treats each horse in her care as an individual and gives each the utmost attention, whether it is someoneâ€™s national champion or someoneâ€™s favorite pet. She analyzes each horse as to itâ€™s abilities and brings out the best in each horse. Sheâ€™s also open and honest about each horseâ€™s strengths, weaknesses and potential. She takes great care when shopping for a client, so as to make the best match possible for both client and horse according to the clientâ€™s abilities, goals and dreams.
Chantelle is married to Dennis Lewis, a well respected horseman in his own right, and they have one son, Lance, who is a multi-decorated national rider and high school junior. They have a few shy cats and one friendly dog, Sadie.
