Roxy is amazing! She's very knowledgeable and a great teacher. I've never riden a horse before and she's extremely patient with my lack of experience. The barn is beautiful and very clean and all her horses are beautiful! I recommended anyone who is interested in taking lessons to see her!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Easy to work with. Was able to schedule my first lesson at my convenience. The horses were great and so was the instructor! I am planning to continue weekly lessons.

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.

      Lauren is an awesome instructor and person! I have had several instructors over the years, but no one has even come close to her amount of patience. I have learned so much from her every lesson and she has helped me bond so well with my horse!

      Linda is an excellent trainer and coach. I have worked with her for many years and am always pleased with my lessons and the progress both my horse and I achieve. I highly recommend her for any rider as both trainer and coach.
