I've been riding at Concord Acres for just over one year and it's been an incredible experience. I took a 5 year hiatus from riding and was nervous to start again. Ruth has been nothing but encouraging and helpful. She knows how to push you to the next level while respecting your comfort zone. Ruth makes sure to diversify groundwork exercises and jumps to keep lessons interesting. The horses are all quirky, capable and fun to work with. I have an unforgiving schedule and Ruth has always been able to accommodate me. I highly recommend riding here.May 26, 2016
I haven't ridden in years and I was afraid that I would have lost any of the skills I'd developed when I was younger. Ruth was great at pinpointing where I could use development and what areas I still had a solid base in. Every week I learn something new and strengthen the areas I've already learned. She's always on time and ready to go as soon as I arrive. I love working with her and am excited to keep improving under her directionJun 9, 2015Verified
My girls just started riding with Ruth and they absolutely love it. Ruth is very patient and knowledgeable and she values the riders safety. Also the ponies she has are perfect for the young ones just starting out.May 26, 2016
I've been riding at Concord Acres for 10 years. As an adult rider, it's great how Ruth's reasonable pricing and flexible scheduling allows me to fit my lifelong passion into my busy schedule. Recently becoming handicapped, Ruth has spent countless hours helping me rehab and learning how to adapt in the saddle to my new disability.May 26, 2016
Ruth had been training my daughter for almost 7 years now. My daughter loves her and I do as well! My girl has built up so much self esteem, confidence and motivation working with Ruth. Ruth is patient and kind and is always willing to make positive things happen for her students. My girl now competes regularly and keeps setting new goals. Even I have started taking lessons. If you are looking for true riding experience in a calm, focussed, relaxing and beautiful environment with a solid instructor with zero barn politics and pressure, I highly recommend Ruth and Convord Acres!Jun 9, 2015
