Liberty Meadows Riding Academy
At Liberty Meadows, we provide a lesson program that strives not only help kids, teens and adults develop certain equine skills but to also cultivate a sense of responsibility, help grow personal relationships and allow our students to set goals, work through obstacles, and celebrate milestones on the path to becoming a better equestrian and rider.
Whether your ambition is to learn the basics of horse back riding, advance on to compete at local, regional and national levels, or even simply to take on a new hobby that gets you (or your children) out of the house, we can provide you the resources through our program. All lessons are lead by instructors that are long-time equestrians and are passionate about teaching others and passing down their knowledge to all ages and experience levels.
We primarily specialize in Saddleseat, which means the rider will be in a flat saddle, but also offer Huntseat as an option. We always focus on learning new skills, growing confidence and having FUN!

Kelly Bangs – Lesson Instructor
Kelly was brought up to have an extreme love and passion for horses and showing. She began competing at a young age in academy and as she excelled in her show career, her mother found an Arabian farm insisted that she try it. Kelly was instantly infatuated with the spunky, fun nature and beauty of the Arabians, and she continued to fulfill her dreams of showing locally, regionally and nationally during her youth career. As she graduated the youth arena, Kelly went on to study Equine Sciences at William Woods University ultimately leading her to a professional career in the Arabian horse industry. She has assisted with many aspects of this business including instructing, management, training, showing and preparing horses and riders for the show ring.
