I've been riding with Rita for about fifteen years, and I love her! She has so much knowledge, I learn something new every lesson. She's a great instructor and she's amazing with the horses. I would recommend her to anyone looking to ride, from beginner to advanced. I was introduced to horseback riding with Western, but when I switched to dressage, we went to Rita and she's been my instructor ever since. Wouldn't want anyone else!

I started riding late in life and therefore had no prior experience. The instructors and trainers at Legacy have been patient and very encouraging along the way. The horses are cared for incredibly well and they are as much of a priority as the Legacy clients. Everyone is supportive of each other and enjoys each other.

I've taken riding lessons from Carol on and off for the past five years as I've had time and money and will definitely take more lessons in the future. Her horses are excellent, safe but not at all bored or barn sour. Her instructional method meets you where you are in terms of skills and interest; she challenges you to learn more each lesson while coming back to familiar skills to increase your confidence. Her barn is about enjoying horses and learning to ride, and not about competitive drama. Lessons with Carol are one-on-one (no group lessons, which are mostly a waste of time) and she teaches you how to groom, tack up, and interact with the horses safely on the ground before you start to ride. You definitely get the entire hour, unlike some places that call a 45-minute lesson "an hour". If you want to move up in dressage -- if you are not a total beginner -- Carol will help you do that as well, taking youth and adult amateurs to schooling shows every summer. I highly recommend Carol and Dressage Dancers as a great place to learn to ride.

      I've been riding here for close to 6 years steadily and there was about a year before that where I came and did trail rides and the odd lesson. For most of those years I've ridden with Markelle and she is incredible. She has all the patience and good will to work with new, inexperienced riders and take them to becoming capable riders with a good foundation in all parts of riding and understanding the horse. I started out a western rider who was truly terrible at english but she's made me into a confident eventer who is now riding and partly training horses for her and an owner at the barn. Saddle Rock is a great place for any rider of any skill level. Jordan, Markelle's older sister, is more experienced and competes regularly in Olympic level competitions so she knows how to train champions and she's really good at pushing the rider. She's not as good with new riders because she's very go go go and doesn't work with new riders anymore. They either go to Nicolette who is amazing for young riders or to Markelle and they stay with her because Markelle is the type of trainer you grow up with in riding. Markelle is more laid back but don't mistake that for lack of skill in teaching, she just knows when to push and when it's enough. I learn more from her every lesson and am totally grateful for my years at Saddle Rock Stables with Markelle and Jordan. The facility is also super nice and we have both an indoor arena where we do more of the dressage and a large outdoor arena with lots of varied types of jumps for practicing showjumping. For cross country we go to other facilities that have a cross country course as we do not have one. The barn is also located in a large horsey neighborhood so we can go on trailrides in the summer and they are the best. Saddle Rock is truly a special place and I would rather ride here than almost anywhere else.

        My horses get the best care possible at Cadbury farm. This is the happiest my horses and I have been at a boarding stable in my 20+ years of owning and boarding horses in the PNW. I've boarded there for over a year now and the feed, turnout situation, and arena footing is consistently nothing short of perfect. Barn owner/trainer Nichole is a pleasure to work with and a first rate instructor and horse trainer. My young horse is coming along beautifully with her help and my older competition horse is thriving under her care and and instruction. I ride eventing and my horse and I went from a "getting our dressage test over with so we could jump" mentality, to actually enjoying our dressage journey together.

        I have been riding at THE RIDING PLACE on and off for about 3 years, the place has a lot of area, good outside small trails to get a horse used to our NW weather, and rider used to small changes in the riding trails, with small streams and ponds, that have ducks and other birds , it has a nice round pen out side, This place has events for young and old that are interested in horses. The owners are on site almost everyday, They too have horses there, The box stalls are 12 x 12 and joined up with large runs for their outdoor time too They have a indoor arena that has a view room for comfort for those not riding or if you would like some snacks or lunch, a big tack room! 3 nice wash stall areas, matted and one can watch riders too! I have enjoyed joining up with other riders and doing team things for holidays and schooling events! Trainers come there and help us, and give seminars! It is some times a time for extra learning and lots of caring and sharing!

        Lynda has been patient and kind and understanding of my limitations. She allows me sufficient time to master skills before pushing me to move on to learn new things. I am very happy that I chose Hollywood Hill Equestrian Center to learn how to ride. Thank you Lynda!

She is funny and has taughter her every single thing that a new rider needs to know and beyond. This is such an amzing place! Thank you to everyone at The Red Horse Farm for everything you do!

          My 8 year old daughter has been taking lessons for the better part of one year now. She loves the instructor, the horses, and the facility. Instruction is age appropriate and well paced. The staff is friendly with flexible schedules. I highly recommend Sunset Lake for anyone looking to improve their horsemanship skills.
