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.
Lovely facility. Great people. Access to amazing trainers. Great show records for 2011. Growing farm. Family oriented. A safe place for your kid to learn to ride.
My daughter had her first horseback riding lesson with Rebecca and she was wonderful. She is very patient and kind and my daughter really loved working with her. We will definitely continue taking lessons with Rebecca.
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.
The entire system and services have been upgraded. The owner is very patient with kids. Lots of ooportunity to learn, ride, shows, help, board, lease, adopt, and have summer camp fun. Sara trains the smalllest to the oldest teenagers and is very flexible and understands a farm and the horse world. My daughter has grown and learned much in 2.5 yearsand is very confident now nd the people are always friendly. Sara focuses on your child with full attention.
Rob and Kim were both very courteous and responsive. It has been a pleasure interacting with them and we hope to keep riding at Hawks Hollow farm.
Growing up, my life revolved around horses. It still does! I have been riding for as long as I can remember (since I was four). I have experience in Western and dressage but mainly focus on hunter/jumper for myself. Aside from physical riding knowledge and skill, it has greatly benefited me to learn about all aspects of horses and caring for them. In teaching lessons, I have found that the more knowledge you have to offer, the more interested the client becomes in furthering his/her own understanding of the animal under them. Lessons can be customized to suit the needs of each particular rider, whether he/she be young/older, beginner/advanced, or for more therapeutic reasons, all together. In addition to teaching people how to ride, I also have pretty extensive experience when it comes to teaching the horses themselves. Reconditioning is a constant necessity. Every time you ride, you teach your horse something, whether you realize it or not. It is extremely easy for a horse to pick up bad habits overtime. By working with the horse and showing the client exercises to do on their own, general problems are easily solved. Lessons/training prices are determined by time and travel distance.
