Kristin is an accomplished and experienced rider who can take on individual riding projects in order to give your horse some further, in depth education and boost them to the level you as an owner would like them to be at. Training rides will improve your horses ridability and help them learn faster, allowing you to also progress further in your education. Training  can also be used to keep your horse in riding shape while you are unable to yourself. 


Kocher Equestrian Center is all about goal and detail oriented lessons. We aim to take you and your horse to the highest levels of riding. Kocher Equestrian Center lessons are taught by Kristin Kocher Gretok, who has been riding since before she could walk and teaching since she was about 15. Kristin combines technicality with fun in order to create a positive learning environment for you and your equine partner. 

"If you're on a horse you've already won."

-Kristin Kocher Gretok

Owner and Head Trainer of KEC
