Lester Murphy has received his classical training in Ireland with the British Horse Society. Much of what he has learned there he hopes to pass on to his students. This includes riding the horse well, and practical knowledge of horsemanship.
Lessons are offered for the beginner through advanced rider in dressage and jumping. Students of all levels may participate in shows and clinics on and off site. We always have a nice selection of horses for the beginner as well as advanced rider. All horses are selected for their willing and easy temperaments, as well as athletic ability. The gentle nature of the Irish horse provides an easy and safe ride for students of all levels. The Irish Sport Horse has gained worldwide recognition for producing top international competition horses but are also wonderful for even the most timid beginner. These horses have very easy going natures and are eager to please. The same horses that we breed or import from Ireland as sale horses are used in our lesson program. This provides a rare and unique opportunity for students at High Point Equestrian Center to learn from outstanding horses.
High Point Equestrian Center is a combined training facility, offering lessons for the beginner through advanced rider in dressage and jumping. Sensitive and classical training of the horse is provided for horses of all training levels. Whether it is a young horse that has never been ridden, a horse that has developed problems, or a show horse that wants to go farther in his training, all horses are handled with sensitivity and patience.

The barn is in pristine condition and features 20 large 12 x 12 box stalls, heated wash stall, viewing lounge, and a large indoor riding arena with new footing.
