John and I have ridden with Kathy & Robert several times in the beautiful state parks and it has always been a pleasure. Recently we took two of our visiting grandchildren, ages 12 and 15 and they can't wait to go again. Robert took the time to explain each horse's personality and showed the kids how to properly handle the horses. They were thrilled with learning something new, riding horses that responded to them, and galloping through the park! Thanks Kathy and Robert for your special service.
Jasmine was quick to respond to my inquiry on Thumbtack and offered very good price for lessons. My daughter loved her lesson in big part because Jasmine did a great job connecting to my daughter. You can tell she read and remembered what I wrote in my description of my daughter's horse back riding experience. We will be taking her lessons now on the regular basis. An equestrian place much closer to us that had us on the waiting list called me this week and said that a spot opened up, however after asking my daughter it was clear that she would like to continue taking her lessons from Jasmine!
I wanted my daughter to learn a new skill, get some exercise, gain confidence, have fun and "un-plug" from the electronics. Horseback riding was the answer. We feel so fortunate to have discovered Andrea Whiting. She cares about her students' success as well as their safety. We were sad when she moved ...we attempted lessons at other barns but didn't like any of them as much as we liked Andrea. If you are lucky enough to be in her area, go get a lesson! You won't regret it.
My three year old son and I both get lessons from Ashley Pletcher at the KEET facility. We have learned so much about horses and have become stronger riders in a safe and friendly environment. I would recommend KEET to all equestrians at any level of riding. The facility is clean, safe, and organized, and has equipment for every style of horseback riding. As an experienced rider who just got back into the sport, Ashley has provided me with the perfect plan to get "rider fit" and is teaching me countless lessons I never knew before. She is fantastic with children of all ages and knows how to engage even the youngest riders. 5+ star rating for sure!
I could not be more pleased with the experiences I've had with Ilona Maegdefrau. I first met Ilona in 2000. We brought 2 horses to Florida in 2000. Ilona provided care for our horses and riding lessons for myself and our daughter. She continues to demonstrate the same qualities I admired then. She is the best! Knowledgeable and experienced in every aspect of horsemanship, with the care of the horse and the rider always her top priorities. I would recommend her without reservation.
Alisha started me out almost 8 years ago. She was a great, responsible instructor who doesn't just have you "ride the horse." She helps you learn about horsemanship and how to correctly handle a horse. Also, she will take you to the shows when you are ready. By far one of the best children's instructors around
Olivia is amazing with my daughter and we look forward to every Sunday just for the lesson! I wish there were more time spots available is the only reason it's not 5 stars.
At Purple Pony we take all ages and abilities. I have over 30 years of experience with horses and 20 years instructing. Kaj is a Morgan who adores kids and is well-behaved. Come and learn to ride on the best breed ever, the Morgan!
