After having taken a considerable break from horseback riding, I decided to jump back in as it were. I contacted Denise, and did an introductory lesson and it was FANTASTIC! She has a phenomenal teaching style that spans from wee kiddos to adults, she explains everything very thoroughly, is safety focused, and truly has a great passion for her work and a deep love for her students. I highly recommend Denise and Forecast Farms for riders of all abilities and ages!

I've been riding with instruction from Right Start Riding since June 2016, and it has been such a positive experience! I took a long break from riding so I was a bit nervous to start back up again, but riding with Carole has made starting up again great. It's been such a positive experience for me --- I've learned so much in just a couple months, I feel more confident riding, and I can tell I'm improving each lesson. I've had so much success with this instructor, that I've now gone from group lessons to private lessons with her! Would 100% recommend for people interested in getting horseback riding lessons.

I rode today for the first time in 10 years. Melanie assisted me in re-learning basic skills. We worked on how to "post" at a trot, which I had never learned to do. I enjoyed my time there and will be going back. I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone interested in learning, re-learning, or just enjoying some trails. I can't wait for my next visit. Thank you Melanie!
