I've been riding with Jasmin of High Tide Equestrian for 6 months now and can't say enough great things about her! She not only has an incredible depth and breadth of knowledge, she has the ability to skillfully impart that knowledge to both horse and rider. Bravo Jasmin!

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

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.

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.
