I was looking to take horseback riding lessons. Reynolds were the right price and they could fit me in at the times I was available. I look forward to my lessons. Two thumb up!
Kay worked with my three daughters, ages 4, 6, and 9 years. We arranged an introductory horse lesson that would cover basic grooming and 30 minutes of riding for each child. I was impressed with her ability to tailor each lesson according to the interest and ability of the individual child. I believe Kay is an educator at heart. She kept the kids engaged in their lesson by asking questions while providing guidance and instruction. We have only one prior experience with horses and instruction at a different stable and comparatively Kay is superior. All of my children want more lessons from Kay.
I have taken lessons from Jan and boarded horses at her facilities for about 16 years. I stay because the lessons are great and the care the horses receive is superb. Stalls are cleaned properly, they get ALOT of good quality hay; they are pampered and and happy. Her indoor arena is big, with excellent footing. There is an outdoor sand arena as well as hay fields to ride around in. For me, the location is also important. It is close enough to town that I can get out there often. Also, the other riders and horse owners there are friendly...and Jan is great!
At RRA we offer a very friendly atmosphere. Our goal is to ensure that your experience here is comfortable and fun as well as educational. We have over 20 years of experience in multiple riding disciplines, such as Hunt Seat, Western Pleasure, Western Horsemanship, Showmanship and Trail. We specialize in Quarterhorse but all disciplines are welcome. We participate and show in various levels from 4H up to the AQHA World as well as High School Equestrian. Many of our students have won several Championships.
Been leasing with the people here for a couple of years now. Management is open, approachable, knowledgeable and professional. This barn has provided an excellent avenue to my teenage daughter for improving horsemanship, learning and implementing natural training methods and spending lots of time learning all the care that these animals require. More like extended family than just a boarding/training facility. Lessons on sound horses are excellent for the beginner rider, and leasing offers options for those with more experience who can ride without a trainer present which really increases rider performance and ability. I can't say enough about this barn. Come see for yourself! :)
Fun, educational, affordable, and safe! We offer horseback riding lessons for first time riders through advanced riders in English, Western, and most advanced disciplines. We also provide indoor and outdoor arenas, great horses and ponies, and showing opportunities for riders who want to compete. A knowledgeable, experienced, and patient instructor tailors all programs to the individual to ensure complete client safety and satisfaction. Haul-ins are always welcome and traveling lessons or training (taught at your property) are also available to selected areas. Horse training from starting/breaking to show finishing for most disciplines are offered, as well as professional show riding. Call or email anytime to discuss your personal goals and desires!
I provide basic horse lessons and not just riding lessons. I also educate my students on horsemanship. I also provide pony parties for birthdays, etc.
It is very difficult to find a classical instructor in Michigan. I studied in Maryland with Kathleen Harjess and Erik Herbermann. As competition dressage gains popularity, so do training shortcuts that are supposed to help the horse and rider get further faster but instead can cause serious damage to the horse and are not applicable in other contexts. Most instructors teach you how to ride their horses for their discipline. This can still be a wonderful experience for many students and enables them to build confidence- but it is not always safe for the rider and is infrequently safe for the horse's long-term health. I train riders to communicate to the horse and then allow the horse to respond in such a way that it encourages the horses to give a different level of performance to their riders. The horses become willing participants and even the crankiest old horse when ridden correctly will find a bounce in his step that was never there before.
If you want to learn how to properly ride a horse, consider hiring this professional to teach you. Brian offers English and Western riding lessons for students of all ages and skill levels.
