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.
Betsy and Paul Boone have created an environment that is inclusive for all levels of riders, from showing to weekend lessons. Whether your goals are to win in the show ring, learn the ABC's of horsemanship or maybe a refresher from your younger days of riding you will be comfortable knowing their 30 plus years of experience will provide the perfect environment.
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.
Crosby Reed is one of the the most professional, knowledgeable and highly experienced trainers we have experienced since beginning our horse journey in 2013. My girls have excelled tremendously in skill and confidence under her guidance and love having the opportunity to learn the many disciplines of riding and driving she offers. They have attended two camps during summer 2014 and plan to attend all the camps she has to offer in 2015 as well as several horse shows. Crosby is structured in training but still makes it a fun experience in a safe learning environment. I personally attended an weekend adult camp at the farm and worked with Crosby in a few other event capacities. I personally have really enjoyed learning from her. She has an amazing natural ability & connection with horses... it is fascinating to watch her working one on one with a horse. She is a wonderful role model of hard work, dedication and determination. Any age and experience level of rider will excel at Mimosa Hills Farm!
