Five Oak Farms offers training and lessons for riders of all levels, from beginners to those competing in the Grand Prix ring. Our training philosophy reflects our commitment to treat riding as a constant learning experience that should be shaped by input from multiple perspectives and disciplines. Our trainers believe the greatest rewards—for horses and riders alike—come from a program anchored in education and athleticism, rather than the pursuit of short-term results.
Audrie Kerr believes passionately in continually developing her expertise as a rider and trainer. Her talents have been enriched by a diverse equine background that includes experience in breeding and foaling, working on a cattle ranch, managing a top hunter/jumper barn, and running lesson programs at two facilities before moving to Five Oak Farms in 2011. She has ridden with top clinicians such as former U.S. Chef d'Equipe George Morris, Karen Healey, Jim Wofford, and Buck Brannaman. Audrie also spent three years as Patty Ball's assistant at Hunterville, where she taught lessons, rode clients' horses, rode and coached students at shows and medal finals, and managed all aspects of the 25-stall boarding operation. Audrie's training approach values integrity and good sportsmanship and offers clients a relaxed, friendly approach with a competitive edge.
