I started taking lessons at St. Francis Riding Club a few weeks ago and have nothing but positive things to say: the horses are well trained and treated well, the instruction is impeccable, and Oni is awesome. I look forward to going every week.

I had my first lesson with Oni and had a great time. I felt very safe in her hands and was able to learn how to maneuver the horse. Got to try out the trot which was pretty fun! I would definitely recommend her for future lessons.

Our 10 year old daughter Ella has been riding with Kate for about 2 years. We cannot say enough about how wonderful Kate is for Ella and all of the other kids at the barn. She builds their self-confidence, their leadership skills, and has high expectations of them...all in a low pressure environment which is an usual magical combination. It goes with our saying that Kate's riding is exceptional and her dedication to all things equestrian is superlative. She trains Ella to ride her best, every ride, but somehow manages to make the hard work FUN. She pushes Ella and the kids to be their best and they are eager to please her and make her proud. And in turn, she helps them be proud of their accomplishments. Last Summer we bought a horse for Ella - we didn't know where to begin. Kate helped us every step of the way to get the absolute right match for Ella. A few months later when Ella developed some fears, Kate worked with Ella to overcome her fears and develop as a stronger rider. Kate works tirelessly, night and day, at the barn for the kids and the horses. The kids all want to hang around and watch Kate instruct the other kids because they learn so much just by watching. Sometimes Kate will bring in experts for specific clinics and this has always been a huge learning experience for the kids. Kate also organizes many fun shows so the kids can get a taste of riding competitively. And as if this is not enough, in Jan 2017, Kate gave Ella the riding goals they had written down for 2017...we were so pleased that, with Kate's guidance, Ella achieved every one of them. I can't say enough about this amazing young woman and how fortunate we feel to have her influence and presence in our daughter's life. She is an all-around, phenomenal role model for kids.

Kate is very knowledgeable and communicates well with her students. She is enthusiastic, patient and kind, and able to be firm and professional but always fun. Tabitha (age 10) looks forward to her riding lessons and also the many riding competitions that Kate involves her students in. We are happy to have found Kate Little. Tabitha and Tom

Kate Little was extremely helpful and took my needs into consideration during my lesson. I got a full hour lesson if not more, and she was solely focused on me and my riding. I will definitely take more lessons in the future with Kate.

I have been training with Dina for 10 years. She is a phenomenal teacher. Dina learns each of her students’ strengths and weaknesses and tailors her lessons accordingly. She always talks with her students to find out each of their goals and develops a program to help them reach it. I am always telling her she has the patience of a saint. My riding skills would not be where they are today if it weren’t for her teaching me over the years. Dina always gives the horses the best care and training. I never worried about my horse when I had to leave town because I knew he would be cared for like he was her own. Dina incorporates many different activities (shows, trail rides, cross country schooling, horse camping) to make her students’ riding experience the best it can be. If you are looking to advance your riding skills and have a good time doing it, I highly recommend training with Dina.

I loved my experiences at Vescera Show Stables! Dina is kind and easy going-she makes riding and the barn fun. I have moved on as a professional jockey at the racetrack and I credit Dina and her experience combined with her teaching ablilty for a lot of my success. She teaches the foundations needed to go on in this business. I would recommend her to riders of any level-everyone can benifit from her. Can't say enough good things about her-shes a trainer, a rider, a teacher, and a worker!!

Dena has a fun goal oriented program appropriate for all levels of riding. She helped me gain confidence, refine technique and has helped me reach the goals I have always wanted for me and my horse. Her program integrates fun, safety, real horsemanship and a focus on a high level of riding. Her range of experience and ability is training young horses makes her a wonderful resource for starting horses, helping with specific problems as well as a focus on developing strong riders.

I highly recommend Dennis and Bright Ranch for horseback riding! My 10 year old son begged for us to get him lessons for almost a year. I found the Bright Ranch and explained exactly what kind of experience we were looking for. After the first lesson, my son gave Dennis the highest compliments and is looking forward to many days spent learning to ride and care for the horses. We are very happy to have found such a great program!

Megan is awesome at what she does! No matter your experience level she is able to accommodate riders of all ages. I had not rode a horse since I was about 10, so I was a little nervous, but Megan made it so much fun and eased my nerves! She has several horses that will accommodate riders of all ages.

I am a horse trainer. I will come to your facility to help you with your riding skills, horsemanship, and training. I have 23 years experience in training young riders and horses to level II dressage, combined training: training level, and hunter/jumpers (3'6), gaited exhibitions, as well as endurance rides. I have managed facilities and shows, and shown two in hand in driving competitions as well as driven sleigh rides. The basics of horsemanship are similar across the range of riding styles; students love working with me because they learn not only how to ride, but how to understand what is going on and be proactive, so problems don't happen. Horses succeed from patience, understanding and continuity. I teach from basics to finesse like a whisper, if you want to know how to communicate with your horse, so you are a team, then I would love to help you learn.

Everyone offers a different way of training, horses and humans alike respond differently with who they interact with. I like to make relationships with the students as well as horses and see how we can better communicate between all parties by studying human and horse behavior.
