"I'd been struggling with my daughter; she was frustrated at school, every other activity we tried for her was a bust. She got kicked out of soccer, marched out of dance class, gymnastics, swimming and I had been getting calls and emails weekly for behavior issues with classmates and teachers. I read somewhere that horseback riding was a good way for kids to learn self control, get exercise, develop compassion and learn responsibility.
I called and spoke to Ruthanna about getting her in lessons and about my concerns. She was sympathetic, offered me fantastic advice and we got my daughter signed up.
Five weeks later, I have an entirely different child. So far she's had lessons with Lu, Lauren and Rhi and each time she's come back full of pride and confidence. They set the bar high for her and have been gently guiding her to be the best she can be. She feels safe, believed in and important. I've watched the staff not only with my child, but with other riders; they're professional, patient, compassionate and are fantastic mentors to these kids. This is, bar none, the best thing we've ever done for my child, and Bridges Equestrian stables and staff have made an enormous difference in her life. Absolutely, ride here."
