I met Ella this past July 4th weekend for my first horseback riding lesson. She was quite the chatterbox, instructing me in the ways of a horse and how to handle those massive creatures. She gave me a lot of useful knowledge and I am looking forward to my next riding lesson. I highly recommend Ella.
I started riding lessons two years ago with no prior experience. The past two years training with Tanya has increased my skill level and confidence tremendously. Tanya is a very experienced rider and instructor. She observes my progress, provides clear instruction, and continues to improve my skills. And she makes the whole experience fun! Tanya will also provide the "total horse experience" if that is something you might want. For me this includes grooming my horse before and after riding, saddling and bridling. I now know the basics of horse care and equipment. I highly recommend Tanya for any experience level and age!
My first time using Thumbtack and it was a success!! Yvonne responded to me the same day and was happy to work with my schedule. I've been taking lessons with her for about 4 weeks now and I absolutely love it! Her horses are amazing and she is the best instructor I have ever had. She's very patient, kind, and knowledgeable in every aspect of riding and horsemanship. I have already learned so much from Yvonne in a short time and look forward to my lessons each week!! 5 stars isn't enough!!
My daughter is 7 years old and learning English Riding. Linda really empowers her to be an independent rider that is responsible for her horse and her learning. My daughter counts the days until her next lesson.
I have known Stacey for over 12 years now. She trained my daughter who is now 25 for a number of years when she was younger and led her to be 2nd in AZYQHA in the state at 12 years old. I recently in last 3 years have reconnected with her to take lessons and have bought my own horse with her help. She works with me and my horse. I trust her completely with mine and my horse’s training and welfare. She is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of riding, showing, care and breeding. She has a great demeanor as I have found that many trainers are gruff and rough around the edges. She always has a smile and a positive attitude. I recommend that whatever level you are at, she will be great to work with.
I can't say enough good things about Meagan! I am a total beginner and she has been very patient in explaining everything from tack and grooming questions to proper body positions for both me and the horse. She promotes safety first - for the rider and horse. Love taking lessons with her!

With training from Jack Brainard, Wendy Hilton, Daniel Stewart and others, you can be assured that you're getting a good, solid foundation.
I focus on teaching foundation riding skills. If you understand "why" you are asking a horse to do a movement, then it is easier to communicate your requests to the horse. If you can do a great walk, then you will have an easier time doing a great trot, which makes it easier to do a great canter. I believe in building to every level and using the confidence you achieve with each success to fuel the next success.
I teach Western riding, with a focus on understanding your horse and your relationship with him/her. I also provide instructions on care, diet, kinetics, training and troubleshooting issues with your animal. I am a licensed BSN in AZ and MI and I also work with disabled students and horses, providing an opening for the development of a mutually beneficial relationship between the horse and rider. In the course lessons, I am including some minor work about care maintenance and repair of tack and out buildings. I believe that providing students with a thorough understanding of their animal's psychological and physiological response to his environment and various stimuli in it gives them a solid ground that provides them with all they will need to continue happily working with their animal long after I'm gone.
Because lessons are private lessons, the focus is always on the individual student. Teaching the student how to have a balanced seat is crucial to having a balanced and safe ride. My students all do well in their riding ability and it is evident when one watches them ride. It is rewarding to see them progress from week to week in their horsemanship skills. As I have said, "the difference is in the ride." Plus, my students learn how to safely groom and saddle the horse, and lead the horse. Everything in their lesson is designed to help the student grow in their own personal development while also developing a close and loving relationship with the horse, and learning how to ride with balance at the walk, trot, and canter.
