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.
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.
Emily has taught me everything I know about horses and horseback riding. I have enjoyed taking lessons with her since my childhood. She is an amazing teacher and is truly passionate about providing quality equine education!
Travelda Riding Academy and Mary Kate have been nothing short of wonderful. It has been such a positive experience for my whole family. I have 3 children that ride and were having such a good time that I started riding shortly after they did. We were all brand new to the world of horses and they have patiently and thoroughly guided us every step of the way from basic horsemanship to owning our own horse. They have an incredible selection of lesson horses to fit the brand new, timid rider as well as the more advanced rider who is looking for a challenge. I would recommend without hesitation!
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!!!!
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
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.

I am a horseback riding instructor, level two international, in the British Horse Society. I can teach dressage, jumping, and three-days event. I have a bachelor in English, and because I am a native Italian speaker, I can teach Italian language, grammar and conversation.
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.
