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.
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.
Outstanding! Have taken several lessons and am very impressed with the quality of horses and facility and with the instructor knowledge. Good for a variety of riding levels and the facility promotes a good "barn community" feel!
Erich is a wonderful trainer! So glad we found him through Thumbtack and we are super happy about our lessons.
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.
Tara Hieb set me up with a wonderful lease riding TC, an 18 year old gelding.
Courtney is great! Friendly, helpful and accommodating with schedules.
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.

I try to provide a training clinic in a vacation oriented setting. I want my customers to relax and enjoy their experience with me. I want to keep my clinics small and private. This clinic will be geared to the horse and owners speed. I want this to be the most riding clinic as possible. We will start with some ground work and as soon as possible, we ride out on the trails to apply what we learn. My customers enjoy being allowed to go at their own pace, and have one-on-one training in a private clinic. I recommend the 3 day clinic, it seems to be the most popular. We will cover a lot of information, and have fun doing it.
What makes my services stand out is that I have FUN doing the riding lessons and getting to see kids using and enjoying my pony! Mistakes are allowed and I don't bark at the kids when they happen. Gotta learn somehow :)
