Lori was very patient and provided excellent guidance during my lesson. I was a bit nervous as the first and last time I rode a horse was once 40 years ago, Lori stayed close during the tack/untack and riding to ensure I was ok.
Foothills Equestrian Center Has turned out to be one of the best life changes I have ever made. Arriving at a new barn can be challenging but Dana and the whole Foothills family welcomed us with open arms. Dana's help and instruction has allowed my teenage daughter to thrive through her riding and has helped me discover a renewed love of riding and learning about our equine partners. Danas expertise is invaluable to me as we overcome every challenge I hit with wonderful new to me Centered Riding techniques. Lesson times are flexible and suit my busy schedule perfectly. Danas horses are safe and well trained which met my goals of safety first and fun second completely. I highly recommend Dana Dewey and Foothills Equestrian Center!

I have been riding with Renie for almost 13 years now and you won't find another trainer like her. She is knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, and caters to different styles of learning. Renie and her daughter Tori can teach riders of any level and expand their knowledge of riding along with horsemanship skills. Renaissance Farm has a family atmosphere and is truly a fun place to be! There are riders of all ages to make friends with and great lesson horses. Even if you just want to visit - come school! We have a ring with show quality jumps and a derby field available for schooling. The farm is beautiful and the horses get the best care you could dream of!
Jeff and the instructors at Three Cedars are very knowledgable and passionate about Natural Horsemanship. They practice it everyday in everything they do. Three Cedars is a wonderful place to take lessons and learn all aspects of a horse, more than just riding. They teach you all aspects of a horse, from hoof up. If you want a place that is comfortable and very relaxed to learn about horses and country life, stop by Three Cedars and check it out!
I have been riding at Foothills for over 10 years now. I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of care given to the horses nor the quality of instruction given to the riders. There is something for everyone with a passion for horses, all ages, levels and disciplines!
Kelly instructed my 9 year old special needs daughter in therapeutic horseback riding. My daughter loved working with Kelly and I was very comfortable with Kelly's knowledge of safely handling the horse and my daughters special needs. She was patient with my daughter, but also pushed her to learn how to ride and steer on her own. The horses/ponies that Kelly used for lessons were very tame even when my daughter would scream and act out, her pony would just remain very calm and wait for Kelly to lead her on. We discovered that my daughter has lots of environmental allergies that contributed to us having to stop lessons until we develop a better treatment plan for those, but if we were to ever start back riding we would hands down use Kelly again.
