I started working with Cathy a year ago, when a group of friends needed someone to fill in a lesson spot. I was mainly interested in riding my Canadian mare, MaeMae, as she is the one who responds well to lessons. After one lesson, I realized that my Canadian gelding, Dudley, who historically has hated ring work and being asked to do anything that is not his idea, would like Cathy's style. So I started lessons on both the following week. It has been a wonderful journey. I rode as a child, but hadn't had lessons since then. I needed help with my own riding as well as with asking my horses to do things. Cathy has an endless supply of expertise, yet she can discern in the first few minutes of a lesson what a horse needs and what the rider needs. She breaks things down into manageable chunks for my horses and I, yet challenges and pushes us at the same time. I have learned so much over the past year and look forward to learning so much more. Dudley -- the reticent one-- won two blue ribbons in his first dressage show this weekend. Two for two. Thanks to Cathy's instruction.

I like that Sara asked what my riding goals are right away. She puts the student first, not pressuring me to do more than I want. Very friendly, down to earth facility with great horses.

      If you are looking for a fun, friendly, and educational place to be... you have found it! Great management, stunning horses, some of the best training around, and phenomenal horse care. As a professional in the field, I can say that this is one of the most realistic and entertaining places to be if you love horses. Never mind the great and large indoor!Due to the location there is some mud, but the stalls and huge grass paddocks for the spring and summer months makes up for that easy!

      Elaine is a great teacher, has a passion for what she does, and has a great love for horses. I had always enjoyed riding with her and listening to her past experiences. Nothing is better than having the great feeling of stress being relieved every time I would hop on their back and let them take me on a little journey. I hope who ever goes riding with her will experience the same. ;)
