Deb was so educational. She takes to time to explain everything from care of the horse, safety to riding. My 11 year old had the time of her life and can't wait to go back!

I have been riding at Crescendo with Kriss Phelps for over 10 years. I came to Crescendo as an adult looking to start riding again after 30+ years out of the saddle. Crescendo caters to riders of all ages and all abilities from owning your own horse and competing to lesson horses and leasing options. Lessons are offered in many disciplines, so you have the opportunity to explore many facets of riding and find your passion. I personally enjoy riding and competing in Dressage. As an adult with a demanding work schedule, I appreciate the professional manner in which Crescendo is run. I would not be able to ride and compete at the level I do without the support of the staff at Crescendo.

I've known Susan for years and had often volunteered at the stables so I was familiar with their horseback riding program. When my daughter got older and wanted to take lessons, I knew of only one place I could trust - Camp Hebron. I was confident Susan would keep her safe and also start her out riding correctly. Now my daughter is often complimented on her riding skills. We drove up from Harrisburg so she could take lessons in Halifax. It's worth the drive!

I have learned a ton through Rachel and improved a lot since I started riding with her 5 years ago. I tried 2 other teachers and enjoyed them, but still think Rachel has a better way of explaining not just what to do to make the horse move, but how you and the horse should both work together. I enjoy coming back every summer.

This lady is an amazing horse person. Ellen not only can read the horse she knows what the owner needs. Ellen has helped me with my confidence in riding and trusting my new horse. I board my horse at Kings View because I know she will be getting the best personal care she could. I never worry about her being out in bad weather she always has plenty of hay and water, Ellen changed blankets all winter I never had to ask her to do anything, Ellen even fly sprays her and puts swat in her ears. Ellen is always involved in my horses care from the farrier to the chiropractor. Kings View Acres is the most peaceful family oriented barn I have ever been to. Having Abby here has been such a positive experience for us both. I can not thin k of anything Ellen could do to improve Abby's life.

We love Mandy. My daughter has taken lessons from her for the past 3 years. Mandy has taken her from a beginner rider to winning at the State 4-H Show to regional Appaloosa Breed Shows. If you are just looking for lessons or need a full Show Horse barn, Mandy can help you out.

Devon Wallish provides me with confidence in the saddle and insightful information to help me improve my riding. Coming out of 2 surgeries and no longer a spring chicken, I love taking lessons from him, he helps me feel secure.

About

We offer trail rides through the beautiful countryside in Southern Pennsylvania. You will be riding well-trained and very pretty horses on our trails through the woods, crossing creeks, up and down hills and out in the open. You will see firsthand how much you can take in on the back of a horse. You will see wildlife in this quiet section of York County. We are only 45 mins from Balitimore, MD; 60 mins from Harrisburg, PA; and 40 mins from Gettysburg, PA. The owner, Anne, has been a horsewoman for as long as she can remember. She has made her love of horses into a business she loves. Anne, has been training horses, competing all over the country in rodeos, giving riding lessons, working with special-needs children and adults for many years. It gives Anne the patience and skill to take people out on the trails that have never been on a horse before. Whether you have ridden all your life or never touched a horse, you will love our horses. They aren't old hack horses, they are well-trained, responsive and user friendly. Children are welcome, ages 5 and up. My customers love the horses, and that it is a real trail ride. We have lots of repeat customers. We even have people that own their horses but come here to ride ours. Customers love our saddles, they are very comfortable and well-made. The customers love that we stress safety for the horses and riders at all times. We give trail rides all year-round. Come ride with us; you never know you may see a white deer, red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, raccoon, great-horned owls, coyotes, and white-tailed deer -- they are seen on most every ride. Give us a call, and you will not be disappointed.

About

Growing up, my life revolved around horses. It still does! I have been riding for as long as I can remember (since I was four). I have experience in Western and dressage but mainly focus on hunter/jumper for myself. Aside from physical riding knowledge and skill, it has greatly benefited me to learn about all aspects of horses and caring for them. In teaching lessons, I have found that the more knowledge you have to offer, the more interested the client becomes in furthering his/her own understanding of the animal under them. Lessons can be customized to suit the needs of each particular rider, whether he/she be young/older, beginner/advanced, or for more therapeutic reasons, all together. In addition to teaching people how to ride, I also have pretty extensive experience when it comes to teaching the horses themselves. Reconditioning is a constant necessity. Every time you ride, you teach your horse something, whether you realize it or not. It is extremely easy for a horse to pick up bad habits overtime. By working with the horse and showing the client exercises to do on their own, general problems are easily solved. Lessons/training prices are determined by time and travel distance.

About

Beginner and intermediate riders enjoy a full hour in the saddle. I teach them to be quiet, confident and effective while riding a horse or a pony. Horsemanship, grooming and caring for a horse are also integrated into each lesson. For the rider who wants to compete, we go to horse shows. For the trail rider, we go to Paperchases in the spring and fall. References are available upon request.

About

I have a talent of interpreting the behavior portrayed buy the horse while communicating the "Fix" to the rider. My attention to detail is outstanding. One of my mentors is Ginny Spooner of Huntington Beach Ca.(10 years). Ginny's son Richard is one of the best Grand Prix riders in the WORLD!

About

I am very calm around horses. I earn their respect. I dont "break" horses. I work with them. I make sure they trust and respect me. Which could take a while. But that depends on them and how willing they are to learn.

    I am 23 years old and I consistently rode hunters from age 3-15. I had to stop due to illness and academics but I have ridden sporadically in the previous years since I stopped riding consistently. I rode hunters competitively in local shows ranging from Out of Reach Farms to the Devon Classic. I am interested in taking lessons a few times per week and I am interested in both hunters and jumpers training. I am also completely open to competing again depending on how things go but I would still be happy riding just for pleasure. I miss horses and riding and I would absolutely love to begin taking lessons consistently again.
