Working with Joan and spending time with the horses is always a pleasure. Joan is a wonderful patient instructor who has great confidence in her students. I am grateful for all she's taught me about riding and the horses.

    After having taken a considerable break from horseback riding, I decided to jump back in as it were. I contacted Denise, and did an introductory lesson and it was FANTASTIC! She has a phenomenal teaching style that spans from wee kiddos to adults, she explains everything very thoroughly, is safety focused, and truly has a great passion for her work and a deep love for her students. I highly recommend Denise and Forecast Farms for riders of all abilities and ages!

      We rescued an older horse and with Nancy's help in a very short time we had her in good health and over the issues that she had from her previous owner. My daughter has also taken lessons from Nancy and her connection with any horse is tremendous. The lessons are not just about riding but how to understand, groom your horse.

      I had mostly taken non-specialized riding lessons on horses which, while they have fabulous personalities, were not terribly well-trained beyond walk/trot/canter/"what's a half-halt?" I had learned the basics, but I was completely stuck trying to go further on horses who knew as little about what I was trying to learn as I did. Deciding to take lessons with Rebecca was the best move I could have made - she's super attentive to every detail while I'm riding, she knows exactly how to explain the biomechanics (my nemesis), and learning from a lovely horse who responds instantly to correct cues has completely changed my riding in just a few months. With the added bonus that the horses I ride on my own on other farms are much happier with me, moving more freely under saddle, and clearly getting the benefit of what I'm learning with Astoria. My confidence has sky-rocketed, and I've gone from being stuck to having a blast.

      I have been riding a Merkel Farm for about eight years. I have been a camper at their summer camp and am now boarding my first horse there. I have known the owner Stephanie Merkel for quite some time now and she is a wonderful person and instructor. She is very passionate about her work with her horses. As an instructor, she is patient, understanding, kind, and really does care about her students and wanting them to be the best they can be. The facilities are great with an indoor riding arena and an outdoor riding arena. The lesson horse are the best part, they are kind and willing for their riders. I have really come a long way with Merkel Farm and I just love it so much there. It really is my home away from home.

      I've been riding with instruction from Right Start Riding since June 2016, and it has been such a positive experience! I took a long break from riding so I was a bit nervous to start back up again, but riding with Carole has made starting up again great. It's been such a positive experience for me --- I've learned so much in just a couple months, I feel more confident riding, and I can tell I'm improving each lesson. I've had so much success with this instructor, that I've now gone from group lessons to private lessons with her! Would 100% recommend for people interested in getting horseback riding lessons.
