Head trainer Aurelia Tansey offers a systematic, patient and consistent approach to training which is tailored to meet the individual’s goals and abilities.

From the rider competing in FEI dressage to the showjumper who needs to improve flat-work and rideability, Aurelia will use her diverse and broad experience to create a results-focused program based on your current ability and requirements.

Our training philosophy is based on the classical German training system – rhythm, relaxation, connection, impulsion, straightness and collection – which creates a solid framework for both rider and horse to achieve their full potential.

Full board and training

We offer full board and training at Stonehenge Stables’ magnificent five star facility in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Stonehenge Stables offers top quality care and management with FEI grooms with over 10 years’ experience.

Full board training involves 6 days a week of either lessons, training rides or a combination of both depending on the specific needs of the client. This kind of training is suitable for those interested in developing a long term career of a horse or rider as well as those looking to solve problems in the short term.

Ship In Lessons

Ship in lessons are also available at the Stonehenge Stables facility.

Offsite Lessons

Aurelia is available to come to your barn or school in the greater Monmouth County area wherever outside trainers are accepted and subject to liability insurance. We can also travel to sites outside this area (this may involve additional cost).


Clinics are beneficial in furthering any rider’s education and understanding of the horse in their chosen discipline. The rider tends to feel inspired and motivated to continue with learning having attended a 1 or 2 day clinic or mini clinic (an afternoon of teaching). Clinics can be scheduled either at the rider’s barn or at Stonehenge Stables.


Aurelia can assist in the search for new horses for dressage and will effectively match riders with the appropriate horse. Owners wishing to market and sell horses are also welcome.

Lesson Packages

Unique and individualized lesson packages are available to every rider’s situation and budget. Show Aurelia is available to attend shows to coach where schedule permits. She can also help with show preparation at your home.
