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.
