Eric is one of the best instructors ever! He has a wealth of knowledge And experience when it comes teaching English horseback riding and jumping. He has a very comprehensive Understanding of human and equine biomechanics which is impressive to me as an orthopedic physical therapist. He has a gift to accommodate everyone's learning styles to help them become a better rider each lesson. He gives proper verbal cues At The correct Timing and appropriate drills To help with motor learning of the skills. He has helped me to not over analyze my riding. I leave there learning something new every lesson and feel Im becoming a better rider each week. It is apparent that he is passionate about horses and what he does for living. I recommend him to anyone And everyone!
She is working with my 8 yo granddaughter. Ann is very detailed in each step of horsemanship and riding. My granddaughter likes her as well.
My daughter has been taking riding lessons with Rebecca for a couple months now and is loving it. Rebecca is very good at giving clear instructions and makes it fun for my daughter. She is safety conscious too. Her pony is very calm and so far very predictable. I highly recommend them both, especially for a beginner rider.
I am in my 30s and started riding lessons with Lorina about 3 months ago. She is so knowlegable and caring when it comes to horses. Lorina constantly educates me on the health and body of a horse, the propery cleaning and dressing, different riding termonlogy, and of course the proper way to ride. I had no idea when I first started how or why you hold the reins a certain way, or how most horses respond primarily to your body movement and legs. Its been truly awesome to be so educated and fall in love with a new hobby at this age. She is a book of knowledge and is very throughoug in making sure I understand what Im being taught and I really appreciate that. Nedeau is a super clean facility and very laid back. Everyone I have meet there has been extreamly friendly and welcoming. I take lessons with Tucker which is one of Lorinas horses and he is wonderful! Of course Im a little bias to him but all of her horses are super sweet and well trained. My initial goal was to just enjoy riding with the hopes of learning enough so one day I can own my own horse. I have no doubt that one day I will be ready to own my own horse thanks to Lorina!
Donohue Horsemanship is the absolute best place to learn Ray Hunt/ Buck Brannaman style natural horsemanship. Being a green rider when I first started, the Donohues showed me everything to start working safely and effectively with horses. This is a wonderful environment for a beginner or an advanced rider to hone their skills. I have been riding there for over three years now and have been exposed to everything from riding, roping, and cow working. Silverspade Ranch is a safe supportive environment for learning and making new friends. All the students and boarders are amazing and my wife and I have made many new lifelong friends. The Donohues are the only place you need to look if you want the best in horsemanship.
I came to Karen over five years ago knowing nothing about horses. In that time, Karen has taught me everything from a good seat and hands, to horse care, and to just an overwhelming love of the sport and animal. Karen has taught me many disciplines such as hunt seat, dressage, saddle seat, and western equitation. She walked me through my first days of showing in 4 h, OHSET, and local open and schooling Shows. She has made learning to ride well not just fun, but something that I continually strive to get better and better at. Karen places a huge emphasis on making sure her riders don't just know how to do something, but know why they are doing it. She will walk you through every step of the learning process and use new and creative ways to get you to where you need to be. Karen has been able to teach me years and years of riding skills in the few short years I have been with her. And with those skills she gave me, I was able to do an amazing working student position in Columbus, Ohio under a top FEI dressage trainer. The skills and riding methods she taught me hunt seat on her horses she taught in such a way that they were easily transferable to dressage warm bloods. And if your goals aren't open shows or riding crazy warm bloods in ohio, Karen also caters to that to. Karen will provide you with a fun, stimulating ride to fill whatever your goal may be and will create a warm, positive learning environment to reach that goal. -Erika M.
First-ever horseback riding lesson, including 20 min of tack. Start to finish, Jessica encouraged my 11 yr old, trusted her with the reins and provided a lot of quality information. She builds confidence and skills, and we can't wait to come back!
My 7 year old daughter had been asking me for a long time to take horseback riding lessons, and I wasn't even sure where to begin looking. I searched the website and found Bowman Sport Horses. After reading the reviews, I decided to contact them to get more information. Almost immediately, I received a response from Ahna and we set up a date and time that was convenient for my family. A few days before her lesson, Ahna made sure to get information regarding my daughter's experience with horses - which was none. When we arrived, my daughter was immediately taught horse safety and how to tack a horse, as well as the names of the equipment used. Ahna and her family showed a lot of patience while teaching her the basics of horseback riding. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!
Adria, at Iron Horse Riding Academy, has been a godsend for me, for my daughter, and for our horse, Dylan. Adria's calm and competence were just what we were looking for. She has instilled confidence and a love of riding in our daughter, and has brought out the very best in her horse. A great combination. Thank you, Adria!
Both our son and daughter have loved learning and riding with cowboy Bob and cowgirl Kim! They are so friendly and their ponies are well taken care of and loved by many! We are looking forward to our next ride!
I handle hunters/jumpers/equitation. I am a certified instructor with 40 years of experience as a professional. I give lessons/training/boarding/sales in indoor/outdoor arenas.
