Susannah Lansdale, owner and trainer, of Signal Knob teaches many lessons throughout the week for advanced riders as well as some beginners. She has been riding horses her entire life and teaching since the 1980's. She also accompanies her students to events and shows which the barn partakes in multiple weekends throughout the month.


We take pride in our facilities at Signal Knob Equestrian Center. We've been boarding horses for over a decade and have space available. The 12x12 stales are cleaned and maintained every morning after the horses are feed. On normal days the horses will go out in the morning for 2-3 hours. With weekly visits from our farrier, Riley Vickers, and others, your horse's grooming care will never be a question. Please contact us for more information involving rates and questions

Our goal is continue to grow the equine community by not only making it more available but more accepting as well. 
And this has been a big week for our program at Signal Knob Equestrian Center. We got the chance to spread the word about our program and our goals for its future to more people! I think it was extremely important for people to not only get to understand why I started this program but the importance behind it.
If you told me even two years ago that I’d be presenting a TED Talk, I would have laughed in your face not only because I know that I’m often a ball full of nerves when talking in front of people but because I like many of you have watched numerous TED Talks and every speaker I watched was either extremely knowledgeable or motivational. Then and sometimes even now, i feel those words could never describe me. I am still learning, I am still growing and trying to improve. So how can I impact others? I would have never believed that I could stand up on that stage and bring either of those traits to the table. 
But as I sat there listening to all those admirable people who went on this week before me, I learned about a little thing called imposter syndrome, It occurs when you never think what you do will be enough. That your always falling way too short of your dreams while in reality your not and your ahead of the game and being admired by others but you just can’t see it. When you feel like you haven’t made it. Though this presentation may just feel like a little step in my journey to improving and spreading the word about our program, I still need to take a step back and note how far we have made it. I got asked to present a TED Talk on my program and it’s goals. WE HAVE MADE IT. We are making an impact. Day by day. Step by step! No matter how big or small it may be or feel.
But don’t get me wrong this isn’t our last step, our journey is long and hard and none of this would have been possible without Susannah Link Lansdale and all the opportunities she gave me growing up and even now. Without her my program wouldn’t exist. She showed me what a strong individual looks like and how they get back up after every time they may fall, and you will fall along the way. A baby can’t walk perfectly after it’s first steps, it will take a few steps and fall on its butt, but as long as it gets back up it can take a few more. 
I want to thank our students as well, it’s each and every single one of you guys that makes this journey worth it. From seeing the brightness on those little kids faces to hearing the adults stories. You guys are what drive my program. 
Though this is just another small step in my journy to growing the community and giving my students the same opportunities that I may have had in the industry, this is a big step for our program and I still want to acknowledge that! I am thrilled that each of you got to experience it with us. 
For one day all of our students will have the chance to have all of those ribbons lined up on their walls as well!
