We are located at a small, private farm in Honeoye Falls, minutes from Main Street and the HF-L schools. We are even close enough to be a bus stop option for HF-L students. In contrast to larger programs, we offer a unique, club-type feeling with a small herd of horses and a close knit group of riders of varying ages. Our farm is a labor of love and a work in progress, with many improvements already made, and many in the works for the upcoming months. We hope you love our farm as much as we do.
Amy Lear Rodriguez- Owner
Amy Lear is the owner, instructor and trainer of Lear Stables. Amy grew up locally in fairport, riding at several stables in the Rochester area, owning and competing hunter/jumper horses from elementary through high school.
Amy began teaching beginner lessons in high school, as well as taking some dressage lessons, and decided to go in that direction next. Amy attended the University of Findlay and went to their English program with a Dressage emphasis, as well as equine business management. At Findlay, Amy was able to continue her understanding of dressage, learn to properly start and back a young horse, join the IDA team, and meet some great riding professionals and talented horses.
Upon returning to Rochester, Amy decided to open her own riding program for children to learn the basics of horsemanship. From there, Lear Stables had a variety of homes and temporary locations, and a revolving cast of horses, before settling on a permanent location in 2015. It was also on the return to Rochester that Amy decided to pursue an eventing education as a way to combine her love of dressage and jumping.
Sarah Stewart joined the Lear Stables team in the summer of 2018. She has been a welcome addition to our farm family, and her kind, encouraging, correct coaching and horse training is available multiple days a week as well as at shows.

About the farm
Amy and Sarah currently teach 7 days a week, with riders aged 2 through adult. She also spends that time training green horses, riding her personal horses, managing and caring for the horses, maintaining the property, and taking students to clinics, shows, and schoolings.
We’ll offer you both text, email, and phone support. Amy is available to schedule ahead of time for any unique needs and has a lot of experience with riders of all ages.
Amy continues her own riding education with weekly lessons from her coach, Karin Alexander, as well as participate in as many clinics as her schedule allows from the advanced eventing trainers and dressage masters that visit the area.
