About Our Program:

We strive to offer a fun and relaxed atmosphere while helping our riders to achieve their absolute best. All of our horses are individually selected for their temperament and abilities in order to help each student learn and be successful. Our barn is full of wonderful people who put the care of each horse as the absolute top priority. Whether you just want to enhance your skills as a rider, or you want to compete, we welcome you to Southern Heritage Farm as a great place to meet friendly people who share your passion for horses!

Meet our Trainers:


Tosh Bledsoe is a lifelong horsewoman with more than thirty years of experience teaching riders of all ages and levels. She enjoys riding every day and showing her horses, but her primary focus is on helping others learn how to safely enjoy horses and riding.

Lesson plans are structured and solid basics are stressed, they are also a blast! Every lesson ends with a real feeling of accomplishment by giving each student the opportunity to choose something they want to do such as riding backwards, raising that jump height one more hole, or cantering without hands!

Contact Tosh today to discuss what your goals are in riding. Whether that be having fun on trail rides, learning to jump, competing in horse shows, or riding bareback – whatever your goals are, Tosh wants to help you reach them!

Paige Johnson started taking riding lessons at the age of nine.  Throughout the years she gained experiences showing on the local circuit and the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) during high school.  She has many years of experience working at different barns and riding all level of horses.  She has been a wonderful addition to our barn staff for the past two years, taking excellent care of the horses.  Paige has had the opportunity to be a working student alongside the head trainers that Southern Heritage have been fortunate enough to have.  This experience has given her a love for helping others learn the art of riding and she now has experience teaching beginners through intermediate riders.

Paige focuses on a relaxed, fun environment where her students are able to learn the basics needed to be a successful rider.  Her lessons are structured around each rider’s level and focus on gaining confidence all while having fun!  Whether you are a complete beginner or are looking to start showing, Paige can cater each lesson to your individual need.

She is currently pursuing a degree in Graphic Design through Liberty University Online.  Her online school schedule gives her the availability and flexibility to teach lessons while pursuing her degree.  Integrating her love of the equestrian sport and teaching is very important alongside her schoolwork.
