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'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!

What an experience riding with Kathy and Robert. They are very informative about riding and will help you understand anything you ask about riding with them. Everyone of their horses are well behaved and trained. I hadn't been on a horse since I was a teenager and when I found Kathy and Robert I was ready to give horseback riding a try again at 42. My best friend and I met up with them in April 2011 for the first time. They let me ride Rose, a mustang. I just enjoyed her so much, I ride her every time I go riding, she is very gentle and a joy to ride. My friend and I enjoyed ourselves so much we ride once a month or more with Kathy and Robert now. We have also brought a few friends with us on some of our rides. Everyone has a so much fun that some of them have come back with us to ride. Kathy and Robert really make you feel like you are a part of their family. The experience is well worth a try. There are pictures taken to remember your experience.

WoW!!! What a wonderful relaxing and fun experience!! Riding with Kathy is like riding with an old friend. We have lived in Florida our whole lives but the view from atop her beautiful and well trained horses ranks as our very favorite time spent here and was absolutely incredible. Perfect for all ages as my 9 year old spent the entire ride smiling. This is not your usual trail ride as Kathy so enjoys what she does and there is plenty of time for exhilarating cantering as often or as little as you chose. :). The horses are the best we've ever experienced and Extremely well cared for, clean, and loved. Kathy thinks of everything to make the ride fabulous, from the water bottle waiting in your saddle bag, to picture taking and even sending you the pics afterward. We definitely will be back and cannot recommend them highly enough!!

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.

Ilona is an excellent horse trainer and riding instructor. My horses have responded very favorably to her training; they are performing at a higher level than I ever would have imagined. I also understand them better due to Ilona's guidance. If Ilona errors, it would be in the favor of the horse's benefit - the horse's well being is her priority. Ilona is the first horse trainer that I have met that puts ethics above an income. I highly recommend Ilona; her love for horses and her knowledge of them is unsurpassed.

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.

28 years ago Ilona told me to ride a horse and I never forget the things aboat horses she teached me. It was a lesson for my life and so it was easy for me to buy my first own horse with her help. Every question I had, she had the answer. Even until today she is the perfect horse trainer I ever met. I can call her, she helps me every time.

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.
