Brookshire Acre is a small scale equestrian facility located in Anchorage, Alaska. We focus on building a foundation for each horse and student, rooted in classical horsemanship. We guide our students along their individual journey, developing independent, thinking riders and balanced, confident, healthy horses.
We serve riders of all ages, all skill levels, and all backgrounds. Our students are diverse, and have many different goals. Some of our students love to show, others are dedicated trail rides, others enjoy the pursuit of improvement in their horse. One thing all Brookshire clients have in common: a desire to be the best person they can be for the health and happiness of their horse.
Our head instructor, Shelby Blades, has 20 years of experience with dressage instruction. She is a member of the American Riding Instructor's Association and is fully insured.
We have a small selection of qualified lessons horses at our facility that are available to our clients.
Discounts are available for purchasing a bundle of 4 lessons.
"Shelby is a fantastic trainer. She starts people where they are at and builds a solid active seat, and quiet hands. Since I had to move to Texas, my trainer has given me many compliments on my riding that only came from lessons with Shelby." - Amanda Brueschke (student)
"Shelby has a fabulous teaching style that brings out the best in both horse and rider." - Anne Lee (student)
"Shelby has been a friend and student for many years and is GREAT at getting everyone started correctly in the basics of Dressage, having fun and being safe. I highly recommend her." - Tracy Rowe (instructor)
"Shelby did a wonderful job training two horses for me in the past. She purchased Roxy from me a few years ago to start on her dressage career, and I couldn't be more excited or happier with the results she is getting! Not only is Shelby a wonderful trainer, but she is a wonderful instructor and educator as well. I had lessons with her back when she was training some of my other horses. Shelby made lessons easy to understand and fun, and she had wonderful analogies to help teach her students. I'm sorry that she lives so far away now, but Alaska has a wonderful treasure in her." - Mary Procopio (client and student)
