Megan Malan, is a kind, dedicated and talented rider & trainer. I thoroughly enjoy taking riding lessons, with Megan, at her farm. She has helped me grow as a rider and inspires me to continue to work hard to achieve my goals. They have many wonderful lesson horses and provide riders with opportunities to attend/participate in clinics and shows. I recommend Megan, to both beginner and advanced riders.Jun 2, 2017Cadence Equine Sports Alliance, LLC at New Bethesda Farms, LLC's reply
Thank you Shelley!
Bethesda Farms is a very well kept secret but more should know...it is warm, welcoming and calm, not a lot of drama. Lots of different folks ride there. The farm is well maintained and the horses love their farm. Everyone is well mannered and well taken care of. Megan is excellent with people and horses. She will work with you wherever you are on the learning curve. She is thorough and very easy to understand with her instructions. It is a pleasure to ride at the farm.May 26, 2017
Horseback Riding Lessons (for children or teenagers)
I have only started the process to meet for consultation. I didn't have good vibes with the person. Snappy and short temper. However, I did schedule a consultation but going to cancel it for that reason. Not a safe environment for my child.
