We have our 7 year old taking horse riding lessons with Laura. Her horse is so well trained both my husband and I feel extremely safe with our daughter riding her. Laura is so wonderful with our daughter and they have developed a lovely relationship, and my daughter's confidence is blossoming. I love the fact that Laura teaches her everything from brushing a horse to riding skills. We would recommend Laura's Lessons for sure!!
I had been looking for a riding instructor for my 10 year old son that would be a good match. Knowing my son and being a former teacher/western rider I really wanted a person to match his learning style, be kind, patient and make his formal riding experience positive and meaningful. Once I met Lisa and observed how she began the riding lesson, communicated with my son, worked with the horse and progressed through the session I was joyfully impressed with her as an instructor. My son is excited and looks forward to his lessons with Lisa. I am so happy that Lisa has started my son on the right foot with caring for a horse, grooming, saddling, riding, working on his seat/balance, keeping light hands and enjoying being around horses. I am very grateful to Lisa for making riding lessons such a wonderful life long learning experience. As for me, I have been able to take riding lessons with Lisa too. I rode western when I was 9 to 18 years old and loved every minute of it. Then, I had to stop riding after I went to college and then life took over...marriage, job, traveling and having my son. Lisa was kind enough to offer lessons for me to get back riding again. I was thrilled, so I decided to try riding english focusing on seat work. Lisa was so patient and kind about getting me back into the saddle feeling confident again. She made riding fun and challenging for me mentally and physically. It has been so nice to be able to ride again, have it be an enjoyable experience, ride with my son and learn new skills. Lisa is an amazing instructor for kids and adults. It is a bonus getting one on one instruction. If you are interested in horseback riding for your child and/or yourself, contact Lisa.
After many years & much trying, & a long hiatus, I believe I have found my "place": where I can learn,finally, about horse behavior,how to be around a horse,how to LEARN about a horse instead of just getting on. I could write pages of my journey, but suffice to say: after a bad experience & a long road, here I can do what I need to do. "overcoming fear" is a big part, the other (huge part) is learning about horses. Am looking forward to shoveling poo, as a volunteer, just to be in Olsen's environment. Last, but hardly least, Janice Olsen is working w/me for the necessary $$ part, just so I can be there,& learn. Very comfortable atmosphere. One time w/her,& I knew she "saw" me, & understood. This is all good.
I've been taking lessons with Katelyn Kent for a little over a month and a half now and I can't tell you how happy I am with her teaching. Every week I look forward to meeting with her and the horses to learn how to ride, treat, and care for these amazing animals. She's very thorough, patient, and tailors each session to your current skill level to ensure you're always learning and retaining information. As someone who is new to being around horses I really appreciated how patient and understanding Katelyn was while I became used to being around these big creatures. She does everything to make you feel comfortable around the horses while, of course, keeping you safe. As a side note, she's just an awesome person and I feel lucky to spend an hour with her each week, just for her company! I would highly recommend Katelyn Kent Training to anyone who is interested in learning about horses. She's the best!
Great learning experience. I appreciate their expertise in teaching and how they handle their horses. My daughter is so happy to ride here. The teachers and staff are wonderful. We have taken extra classes on handling the horses which are informative and fun.
I have been working with Codi now for five months and she is outstanding. Her training style is adaptive to the horse and rider and she goes above and beyond to find flexible times that work for your schedule. I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a trainer or for a new instructor to contact her!
Doing a great job teaching my trail TW to be an arena horse, and jumping low jumps.
My daughter did a four hour riding lesson on 12/31/16 with Darla at Kids and Horses. It was excellent! I would highly recommend this riding school. My daughter is 9 years old, extremely shy and a beginner with horses. Darla was a great instructor! She made her feel comfortable right away. We can not wait to continue lessons at Kids and Horses.
Excellent offering of classes and instructors, horses and equipment! First class. East coast style class in Colorado. 0P Thank you.
Tara is one of the best instructors I've ridden with and is especially amazing on the training side. She has a ton of expertise with green horses and is is an all-around excellent horsewoman. Cottonwood offers a great, diverse lesson program; a warm, family-friendly atmosphere; a gorgeous cross country course and some of the BEST scenery and trails around. We board our young horse there and could not be happier.
My son Cody (8yrs old) had the best lesson ever. He love the horse and listened better than I have ever seen. I will bringing. Him back for more lessons.
Jennifer Agnew has helped me become a confident and competent rider. I've been riding with her for over two years and could not be happier- the horses and facilities are awesome.
Leslie was quick to respond to my request for horseback riding lessons and I cannot wait to start riding with her as my instructor!
We offer miles of smiles for any age! Learn to ride. I own an equestrian business that caters to students who want to learn to ride and compete or simply learn to ride and communicate with horses. I have a few very safe lesson horses to learn on, and horse leases are also available! We are located at a world-class facility in Castle Rock that has a host of amenities, including an olympic-sized indoor arena, another large outdoor arena, miles of trail riding, and beautiful pasture turnouts for our four-legged athletes. The stable is a great place for the kids to be, year round!
As a professional in the area of Child Development, I have a unique ability to assess the development and emotional status of each child and to match their individual temperament and needs to their lessons with a horse. As the co-creator of Embracing Horses, I have worked with literally hundreds of children and youth to introduce them to the joys of riding, caring for, and spending time with horses. Our school horses are known for their wonderful dispositions with kids of all ages. Safety is always our first concern.
I'm the president of the board of directors. Horsepower provides therapeutic riding classes every Saturday for disabled students -- children and young adults ranging from 4 years old to over 35.
I focus on the language between horse and rider, not how a rider can control a horse.
We provide horse training, lessons, sales and consulting. We offer to customers a full-service operation locally in Colorado and nationwide.
