Mane View Stables is nestled just off Route 206 in Shamong NJ on Oriental Road. We have been involved with equines, management and training for the past 40 years. Since the beginning of Mane View Stables, the goal has always been to pass the love of horsemanship onto future generations. We take great pride in our management and training programs where we treat every equine partnership with the individuality they deserve.
Becoming an equestrian doesn't just happen. It takes well-educated managers and instructors passing on pertinent information to our students to rise to that occasion. Our staff pulls ideas from various backgrounds, which allows us to manage and train our horses to be the champions that they are. With careful attention paid to each individual horses needs, we ensure the finest qualities are brought out in our equine partners. With the help of our qualified instructors, students are able to produce exceptional friendships and integrate this bond into the sport they love.
Mane View Stables dedicates themselves to providing superior care to you and your equine partner. We take great pride in well-groomed rings, fields, fence lines, & stalls. We work with you to assure that your equine friend has everything they need to be managed properly. We understand that our equines are a part of the family and more than just animals. While in our care your partner becomes a part of our family as well and we will treat them as we would our own.

Mane View Stables is dedicated to educating students of all ages and levels about horses. All trainers at MVS are not ONLY riding instructors but HORSEMAN. We run clinics and seminars to teach horse care, nutrition, first aid, handling, etc. and of course, RIDING. Our philosophy is to be sure students understand horse behavior so they understand how to be proactive handlers and riders. SAFETY is paramount! We teach all levels and understand that not everyone wants to compete. However, if being competitive is your goal, we can meet that, too. Our riders are very successful. We encourage strong skills and help build character through care and love of the horse!
30 minute private lesson: $40
45 minute private lesson: $50
60 minute private lesson: $60
45-60 minute semi-private/group lesson: $40
We encourage semi-private or group lessons as available for the benefit of the riders. This way, riders not only learn from themselves but also by watching their peers.
Practice rides on a suitable school horse: $35
This allows riders to get more time in the saddle and practice things they've learn in lessons. The 1 hr practice ride includes tack up time and the rider is expected to be able to prepare the horse for the ride fairly independently.
Dressage Show: $50/rider
Combined Test: $60/rider
Horse Trial: $65/rider
XC Schooling off MVS site: $50

Our trailering prices to shows, clinics, or schoolings are dependent on location of each individual event.
We offer leases on school horses of all levels to best suit a multitude of riders. All leases require at least one lesson per week. Please call for pricing and to find out who is available!

**The rest of Renee's Bio is currently in the works! To be updated shortly!**
Olivia has successfully competed up to FEI CIC* & Intermediate level in eventing, comparatively 2nd level dressage movements and a 1.20 m show jumping.
Her expertise lies within dressage, stadium jumping, and cross country; however, she has a strong understanding of the basics of riding and the mechanics of our equine partners. Together we can achieve your goals in any discipline. It is Olivia's belief that the principles of dressage and show jumping can help you and your horse progress through many disciplines.
Olivia started riding when she was 8 years old, and was instantly hooked on these incredible animals. Olivia wholeheartedly believes that every horse has something to give and she can proudly say that she is a true problem solver and her specialty lies in acclimating “diamond in the rough” horses and off track thoroughbreds to new careers. Olivia understands that many of these horses are misunderstood and get passed by, but at an early age she decided to make a lifetime commitment to the amazing animals.
Olivia has been competitively showing for over 10 years, and has been fortunate to have successfully competed many different horses in various classes and competition levels, up and down the east coast. Every time she rides or attends any events or clinics, she managed to learn something new. Olivia believes that her education as a rider and instructor is a lifelong journey, and commits to always continuing her education so that everything she teaches is relevant and most helpful to you and your education as a rider and competitor. Olivia's goal is to share her continuing experiences with you.
