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.
Brittany is awesome! Very patient and expertly adapts to her students’ skill levels. She’s incredibly knowledgable and has a holistic approach to riding. I can’t recommend her enough!
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!
I have only worked with Karen for about a month now but I am so impressed. I came back to riding after a long time off as a very rusty re-beginner. her human communication and coaching knowledge are clear, professional and caring. Her horse knowledge is way above par and I am learning from her each time. I am very pleased and would highly recommend her and her lesson horses.
Harley and I have been taking lessons since Fall 10 and we have come leaps and bounds with only a few real leaps and bounds involved. HAHA. My horse and I are more engaged with each other. I embrace natural horsemanship and the ground work transfers to the riding. Having to ride once a week no matter what really helps. I reccommend Rebekah heartily.
The first thing I noticed about Elizabeth is her passion for horses and helping people connect with them. I found her to be a talented teacher as well. Always clear, patient, encouraging, building one principal on the foundation of the last. Continually testing my comfort zone without ever expecting too much or giving me more than I could handle. I was constantly inspired by her confidence in me, which in turn built my confidence in myself. And she's fun to be around too so lessons never seemed like work! :-) After only riding horses for a few months, I owe her a great big "Thank you!!" each and every of the countess times someone has complimented me saying "I thought you've been riding for years. I had no idea you've just started." So here it is... Thank you Elizabeth! You're awesome to work with!
This place is wonderful!! My daughter has epilepsy, ADHD and a blood disorder and is prone to being stressed and scared. But she just loves horses but was always afraid to get to close to them. I scheduled a class with Maria hoping for the best, to help her be a part of something that is therapeutic and amazing (which I always found horses themselves to be) and her experience was nothing short of outstanding. Maria went slow with her during her first lesson and was patient and kind and amazing! She went my daughters pace and Clara (my little girl) was so comfortable with Maria that she even got on the horse "Lenny" and sat there for a while!! Maria didn't push her to walk the horse she just let her sit there while smiling at my daughter and making small talk. I was so shocked and was almost in tears. The smile on my daughters face I'll never forget. My daughter goes almost weekly now for lessons with Maria as does my son Collin (age 13). My son loves riding and loves just being at the barn. And I can speak first hand with a child who has such stress in her life through medical experiences that this place is absolutely amazing.
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!
Amy is amazing and a really good teacher she helps you learn and further your self while keeping the friend relationship with you! thank you for the great lessons and giving me something to look forward to every week! :)

I have a life long passion for teaching and have over 15 years experience teaching all levels of riders. I have competed horses at a national level in several disciplines so I can offer that show experience to my students. I also grew up riding in a canyon so I love teaching people how to trail ride safely. My kind one on one attention to my students sets me apart from many instructors who expect students to just do as they say. I know I am a great riding instructor because I see my students improve each lesson and they give me great feedback and ask great questions if they don't understand something. I take my students success personally in a good way. If my students are not progressing then I need to improve my teaching skills and style.

We offer a fun, safe environment where you can learn horseback riding! At the Horse Sense Riding School, we offer private and small group horseback riding lessons. We love working with students of all ages, whether you are a new student or returning to riding as an adult. In our lessons, you or your child will learn techniques and skills from many different riding styles, and develop strong horsemanship skills. We believe that each rider has different goals and skills, and we design our lesson plans to meet those individual needs. We strive to create a safe and positive environment for learning. Lease options are also available. Our senior horses have come to us as rescues or unwanted horses, and we have re-schooled them to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience possible - while still offering some challenge to more experienced riders. We are committed to providing our horses with forever homes. We have special programs for riders with disabilities, low income families, at risk youth and seniors. We also offer a work exchange program for adult riders seeking more affordable riding options.
I believe being with horses should be a fun relaxing experience like being with any other pet. I believe that you and your horse had a good ride it shouldn't matter what a judge thought of you two. What matters is that you two are safe and happy.
