  2. #2 The Chase

    (18 reviews)

    Karin M.

    We're having a really good time with Eric and his animals. It's obvious that he loves them dearly. He's a talented instructor focused on steady progress. And he doesn't let anything slip. He's on top of his lessons and repeats tirelessly until a technique is mastered. We are convinced we have found a very good teacher.

    James W.

    Kim was great with the kids. Obviously a former teacher. Very calm and supportive and positive in teaching how to work with horses. Kids had a ball. Great introduction to horses and how to relate to them and care for them. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

  4. #4 Painted Valley Farms

    (6 reviews)

    Irina O.

    Karen is an excellent teacher, she is patient, funny and is extremely knowledgeable. I've learned more in 3 lessons then I have in 3 years (when I was a teen w/other instructors). She explains how things work, why horses do what they do, not just tell you "kick", you understand why you are using a certain bridle or why you need to use certain equipment. I would HIGHLY recommend Karen to anyone looking for an amazing teacher.

    Lorina was welcoming and proved very knowledgeable. Indy was a darling and knew far more than I. I have already had 2 lessons and learnt far more than I have learned in many moons with my past instructor. I am booked in for more. Thanks Lorina most pleasurable

What do you love about your job?

I get to the spend the day outside working with people and horses. I used to be a classroom teacher, and this allows me to have the best of both worlds. I can be outside in the sunshine and teach people how to work with horses. My favorite part is being able to be at the barn all the time. Every day is an adventure there, and it makes wonderful stories for the dinner table.

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

I used to be a classroom teacher and had to deal with all the paperwork and working under the fluorescent lights all day. It gave me such a headache. Along with working with mountains of paperwork and legal jargon about what I am required to do, it was so restricting. Being a riding instructor, I get to work outside and actually have the freedom to teach people without any restrictions. It is very freeing.
