Lin Braddick is one of the best instructors I have had in my 20 years experience horseback riding. She has the love and patience to work with young/novice riders but also the educated eye to progress with the more advanced. She teaches the true fellowship of horsemanship in and out of the ring.
When is was younger I had a bad fall at different barn and wouldn't get back on. After a two year break I went to Ruth's and started riding Patches. I completely regained confidence! The ponies are awesome and she has one for the 3 year old beginner or the advanced shower ready to compete. I still ride at concord acres and plan on never leaving. Ruth teaches in a way that pushes you but does not make you feel pressured or nervous at all. I love it here. I highly recommend this barn and instructor for anyone who just wants to have a Great time riding. :)
AMAZING!!!! I cannot even tell you how much I have learned at the Book Family Farm!!!! I was riding for a good 5 or 6 years before I came to the farm and I still learned about dressage, jumping, equitation, western games, trail riding, training and teaching!! Mrs. Book gave me the opportunity to train some of her horses for her and through that I learned what I was truely capable of!!! I grew as a rider and person!! It became a family for me!! I also learned about general care of horses and vet care through owners of horses that had injuries, even though the horse had an injury it was still amazing to see how the vet was able to help the horse overcome its injury!! I also have been able to ride many different horses with very different personalities!! I also was able to buy my first horse from Mrs. Book, I had been training him for a year and a half and I decided I wanted to buy him and take him to college and she had no use for him so i was able to work out a deal with her!!! Mrs. Book gives all her students great instruction from dressage and jumping to western games and trail riding!!! It is an amazing place to be!!!!
We LOVE Acres Away ponies! Our daughters had such a great time, they are now attending regular riding lessons at Acres Away! ALL of the ponies and animals are very well cared for! Very friendly animals and the nice people you will meet.
In 2013, at the age of 67, I began riding for the first time before joining the Travelda Riding Academy in Quakertown, PA in 2017. A positive experience from the start, this program, with riders at all levels, from the very young, to seniors like myself, has renewed my confidence and love of this sport. A Master Teacher in all ways, professional trainer Mary Kate Fahy creates an atmosphere of fun, optimism and encouragement for everyone. Under her watchful eye, I have seen myself improve as a rider on superb lesson horses. The stables are clean, the indoor arena footing is excellent, and two spacious outdoor arenas provide plenty of space to train. I can't believe the many wonderful riders I have come to admire for their spirit of enthusiasm for this program. With its steady growth in clients, I give the Travelda Riding Academy my highest recommendation!
I recently contacted Louise through the Thumbtack site to obtain riding lessons for my 6 year old step daughter, Ella. Ella has been riding for 2 years but recently saw my father take a bad fall from his horse. She since has been afraid to ride and has lost her confidence. While researching trainers for Ella......I called several,along with their barns,and sent emails as well. I honestly must say that I did not have good results. My calls were not returned nor where my emails answered. Except by Louise. She promptly returned my emails and we had a lesson scheduled in no time. I explained Ella's dilemia with Louise and she felt confident that in time she would be able to help Ella get her confidence back and enjoy riding again. She answered all my questions and is very pleasant. Ella just had her second lesson last Saturday and I can already see improvement. Louise is patient with her, attentive to her fears and her safety......all while listening to her sing the ABC song! Ella gets to ride a darling little pony named Rusty, who she feels comfortable riding. All the horses are well cared for and the barn is clean and tidy. Ella and I look forward to many more lessons with Louise!! Thank you! Angie Raker-Reinert
What a great place! The owner/instructor, Coleen, is FABULOUS!! What a great person! She spent extra time with us and was SO patient with the children.
