All About Touch of Class

Competitive Program for Hunter/Jumper and Dressage

Touch of Class was established by Nicole Deline in 2014, with the goal of developing riders who are well-rounded, and multi-disciplinary in their equine education. 

Touch of Class offers lessons from leadliners, up to A-circuit level competitors. We have an active show season, with team members competing at local schooling shows, the Angelstone Silver Series, as well as the Ontario A-Circuit. We set out to offer a positive show experience for our clients, test their skills in a new setting, and reach the goals they have been actively striving for in their weekly lessons.

Programs for horse and rider pairs are designed with our clients’ specific goals in mind, and are actively monitored and amended as goals and milestones are reached. While our focus is on dressage and jumpers, all of our programs have a strong foundation in proper flat-work, regardless of discipline. Our goal is to extend our teaching beyond what is learned while sitting in the saddle, from new students learning how to tack up and groom their mount, to planning and walking the most effective jump-off. 

Our core values are not only to allow our riders to achieve their goals and better their skills, but to develop a generation of riders who put horsemanship AND sportsmanship above all else, creating a positive environment for all of our Barn Family.
