Dylan is a talented, driven, young rider and although she is young she has been pursuing her riding career for over 10 years. Dylan is a B in Pony Club with plans of achieving her A soon. With the help of supportive parents Dylan has had the opportunity to train with some of the best riders in the country, including multiple olympians. Dylan has competed through Preliminary level eventing finishing with impressive results. In the summer of 2019 she helped her team to a team silver medal at the North American Youth Championships commonly known at the Junior Olympics. Later that year she earned her Bronze medal in Dressage. Dylan loves sharing her passion for horses with younger students and when the time is right introducing them to her passion of jumping.
Meredith took weekly riding lessons all through her childhood and dreamed of owning a farm with lots of horses. She has been living the dream for over 20 years and loves sharing her enthusiasm for horses with others. Meredith holds a Bachelor's in Child Development from UNCG. She is the acting District Commissioner of Eno Triangle Pony Club.
This option is for younger children(8-) and starts in the ring with a tacked horse. Meredith or Dylan will instruct the students on safety around horses first and foremost then on the basic fundamentals of riding.
This option allows students to get a more behind the scene look on what goes on in the barn. Meredith or Dylan will invite the student into the barn and teach them about safety around horses as well as how to properly groom and tack a horse. Once the horse is tacked and ready to go they will proceed to the ring for their mounted lesson. This option is recommended to riders with a longer attention span, generally speaking 8+.

Dylan teaching a lesson at New Beginnings Farm to a regular student.
I've been riding with Meredith and Dylan Philipps for two years now. Every lesson that I have there helps me grow as a rider, and they're fun. They challenge you, but make sure that the experience is exciting for you. Thanks to them and their help, I have grown massively as a rider and am grateful for their guidance.
My daughter has ridden for years at New Beginnings Farm. The instructors are a dynamic mother/daughter duo who specialize in Dressage and Eventing, but are diverse enough in their knowledge to teach basics on games, western riding and barrel racing as desired. They have kind, appropriate horses and provide a safe, comprehensive learning environment for the earliest beginner, progressing to aggressive training for competition.
I met Dylan and Meredith at an Eno Triangle Pony Club event. They are both incredibly kind, knowledgeable and welcoming (!!) horse lovers. I was really impressed by Dylan who looks you in the eye and speaks with honestly and clarity whether on or off the saddle. I've taken a number of lessons with Dylan on some of their horses whom I love and would feel comfortable putting my own children on. Their barn is inviting, very well maintained and set on a beautiful piece of land in Chatham County right off of 64. I highly recommend lessons for children or adults at New Beginnings Farm.
I love riding at New Beginnings Farm! It is aways fun!
