We still are under the half-way point to get Ann-Louise a new saddle. Please consider making a donation to our cause instead of buying a regular gift. Pooling our money will definitely get her something she will use for years to come. If you are uncomfortable with "Go Fund Me", you can leave a check at the barn with however much you wish to donate.
❤️
Thank you Ann-Louise and Caitlin (and Robin) for an exhilarating and sweat producing hour of riding this afternoon! I felt like a giddy 12 year old again! 😃🐴
Anyone still interested in the Lytles Tuesday night jumper show on 7/18?
Please Ann-Louise, he doesn't take up much room and he's only a "little" naughty!
Happy birthday
My birthday is next week. I'm taking Friday the 6th off. Please can I ride!!?? Anyway to make this happen....pretty please!?
Has anyone have extra black rubber ball spurs that they have no clue why they have it? I let someone borrow mine and would love to get them back.
Thanks for a fun day, AL! Ann-Louise Horse Training is the best!
Going to the barn tomorrow with Jennifer Howard. I can't wait. I miss all my students and can't wait to get the OK next week-well fingers crossed that I get the OK. Love what I do for a living!!!!!

This is Dr. John Kelly. At the young age of 72, John started riding lessons. He came to us as a total beginner, he just wanted to learn to trot. John is now wanting to canter and doing it. Love our golden agers!

It was snowing this afternoon! Here's a throwback to when Ann-Louise made a snowman in the barn!

Ann-Louise made a friend! And Remmy stole part of his mouth.

April 15, 1995 - March 4, 2022. JT crossed over Rainbow Bridge today, surrounded by those who loved him. He was a barn favorite, with his goofy personality and his sweet nature. Rest easy, JT.

On this cold, rainy, dreary day we thank Erik for taking care of all 16 horses. 6 days a week, all year round, Erik is feeding and caring for our horses in the evening. Thank you!

We had a last minute donation and we raised every penny of the $900 it took to get Bevin an air vest. She went with a Free Jump model, and it fits her well! Thanks again everyone!

01/04/2022

Thank you to all who donated to Bevin's Air Vest Fund! Together we raised $875 of our $900 goal! She only had to pay $25 to get the vest that she wanted. Thank you so much for your generosity this Christmas!

Happy Holidays and please consider our second in command, Bevin McGeehan Nicholson, when you donate! We are all working towards getting Bevin an air vest this holiday season! We are almost towards our goal and if you can donate even $10 toward our goal we would be most grateful. We have almost reached our goal to get her the air vest of her choice! Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to all!

Here at Ann-Louise Horse Training we have the best barn family! The next featured family are the Peppers, specifically Jeannine and her daughter, Josie. Her husband, Jason, was a huge help measuring and cutting mats during our Barn Clean-Up Party! Jeannine has been riding with us for a few years, riding Robin, Oribt, and now Maddy. Her daughter Josie recently joined ALHT during the pandemic, when Sprout shut down for COVID. Since then, Josie fell in love with Saffy, and is half leasing her. Jeannine is always willing to lend a hand or an ear, and Josie provides the comic relief! We love our barn family, and that includes the Peppers!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all who came out to help us clean up and fix our stalls! It will be so much easier to clean, and the horses will be happier with cleaner stalls! It really does take a village, and we have the best barn family! Thank you again!

09/09/2021

Don't forget! This Saturday is our barn cleanup and after party from 9am to 4pm!

08/15/2021

Come one, come all! To our barn make-over day! We will be stripping stalls, power washing walls, and installing blue stone and stall mats. We need all available hands to pitch in and help us give a much needed face lift to our stalls! Afterwards, we will have a barn potluck to hang out with your fellow riders and parents!
When? Saturday, Sept 11!

Our barn family would not be complete without two of our biggest supporters, Cindy Cowen and her daughter Madison. You will usually find Madison helping Ann-Louise with training young horses, exercising boarders horses, feeding horses on Monday evenings, or working with her own horse, Declan. Cindy and Madison have been with us a long time, since 2015 to be exact! They have become a real asset to the barn, and Madison has come a very long way due to her hard work and passion. The sky is the limit for her and Declan!

Belle is growing up with Hailey every step of the way! We have high hopes for both of them. Hailey has put in so much time and effort with Robin and Maggie's last foal, and it is paying off. Here are some pictures to show off all their hard work! Also a big thank you to her parents, Scott & Christine!

Our Story

We are a very small lesson program in the heart of Leesburg. We offer only private and semi-private lessons. Lessons fill up fast for our fall and springtime schedules, so make your appointments early.

Private 1 hour lesson: $60
Semi-Private 1 hour lesson: $55


Ann-Louise's Horse Training LLC is located at Sage Hill Farm in Leesburg, VA. With 5 stalls and 12 horses on site. 3 of the horses are officially retired and are enjoying the easy life. 6 of the horses are lesson horses, where you can take lessons on the back of all the horses Ann-Louise has worked with.
Trail Riding is available, but Ann-Louise herself must approve the trail ride.

Ann-Louise Markert was born in Sweden where she received most of her training. While she does a great job training hunter ponies and riders, her true love is the Eventing scene. She has owned her own horse, Glennord's Celtic Rhythm, since she was a filly. Ann-Louise has done extensive training with her horse, and competed in Preliminary. She has experience in the dressage, hunter, and jumper worlds. And, of course, Eventing.
