There are not enough good things I can say about Cici and the Equestrian Games Riding Academy. Every time I ride with or even watch Cici, I learn something new and my riding improves greatly. I highly recommend Cici and the Academy to everyone for the following reasons; First, her knowledge of different riding disciplines and horsemanship is beyond exceptional. As someone who had trained in a number of academies previously, it was easy to see the difference in quality and wisdom that Cici and the Riding Academy offer. In addition to my own lessons, I have watched a number of lessons conducted by Cici, and have unfailingly found her to be the most perceptive, genuine and supportive riding instructor I have ever worked with. The Academy is well-equipped to cater to riders of all levels, from complete novices to advanced riders. Cici uses her expertise to help riders grow in their ability and confidence, which is reflected in her teaching style. Cici goes out of her way to ensure that her novice riders are safe, and know and understand the basics of horsemanship. For her more experienced riders, her capacity to perceive and expertly judge a rider's abilities helps them grow in confidence and skill level. At all levels, she encourages her riders to excel in a way that is not harsh or demotivating. In all honesty, whenever I ride with her I never want the lesson to end because of how professional and genuine she is. In addition to her riders, she also takes excellent care of her horses, and it shows! They are very well-behaved and in excellent health, which is so integral to good horsemanship. Every time I ride, I improve in skill and knowledge thanks to Cici and the Riding Academy. I have a million more things I could say, but to keep it somewhat short, I'll end by saying how grateful I am to have found Cici and the Equestrian Games Riding Academy. I would highly recommend her to anyone, novice and advanced!

My daughter takes English riding lessons with Cecelia and we would highly recommend her. She has extensive equestrian knowledge and my daughter loves how supportive she is. She is always learning something new when taking lessons. She makes the whole equestrian experience extremely rewarding and takes the extra time needed for each student to reach their full potential. Again I would highly recommend her to anyone at all levels from beginners to experienced riders.
