people in there are very kind! I arrived there at 11:30 and then met lady Michelle. She is very nice. They offered helmet and shoes, and it is totally safe to interact with the horse as long as you follow the trainer's direction. It is quite funny to learn how to brush horses and try to let them understand you. I spent a hole afternoon there, and tried to help Michelle curing her horse tommy who got a wound on his face. Highly recommend you guys to choose this place.

Ann is an excellent mentor and is thorough and encouraging. I am enjoying every lesson (2 so far). I'm new at horsemanship so I haven't the experience/expertise to be more technical in a review. I am very very satisfied with Ann Simon. She'd be great with kids too!

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.


I specialize in teaching beginners on how to communicate, trust, and ride horses. I teach both Western and English styles of riding, in a safe and comfortable way. I start all beginners on a line until they have the confidence and skill to control their own horse. We slowly make our way off line and into the larger arena. I do not allow my students to advance to the next level not until they have displayed proper control of the horse. I aim to provide a safe environment where humans and horses can learn, interact, and grow together by establishing a relationship of mutual trust and respect through the use of gentle communication.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
