Have had several horse riding instructors but Vivian seemed incredibly knowledgeable from the start, and was able to explain things better than any other instructor. She is absolutely fantastic and appropriate for any level of riding, from beginner up! She is also on time, flexible, and easy to get ahold of, and lesson horses were located a pretty short drive from seattle. Absolutely would recommend to a friend.
Rita worked with my daughter for basic lessons. She can be a firm task master, but she gets results and enjoys seeing her students succeed. I don't know the names of any particular style/type of training referenced here, all I can say is my daughter now has one of the BEST seats i've ever seen a rider at her level of experience. She doesn't show, doesn't have her own horse, so this was for her to have horse time and learn. Rita made her so solid in her seat that when she rides now, she has no concerns; she is very confident. That was what I wanted for her. We didn't stay nearly as long with Rita as I would've liked but I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn how to ride, and she will take you further if you want to compete. But be prepared to work! It's a good thing.
9/21/2013 Our daughter has been at Brackenhollow Stables for close to 7 years now. We travel 35 minutes for her weekly or twice weekly lesson and our daughter has grown in her riding and love of horses all along the way. We love Brackenhollow -- Joanna has always challenged our daughter but always in a safe way. The horses are treated with respect and never handled roughly which is not easy to find. Thanks to Joanna and Duschka for the years of outings (thanks Duschka), Pony Club lessons (thanks again Duschka) and many years of attention in lessons and our growth in horse knowledge (thanks to both Joanna and Duschka)!!! Lauren and Jill
We have loved working with Troy and Corbett Stables. We got a block of 5 lessons for my horse loving daughter for Christmas 2 years ago. She was 5 then and Troy has been amazing working with her. His ability to balance being supportive and encouraging, but also pushing her to continue learning definitely is a skill on its own. This is not to discount his knowledge of the sport/horses and willingness to share this with the entire family with our many questions. My daughter’s confidence in her riding abilities and her self confidence in general have benefited by horse riding especially under such a great trainer!
I've known and had Danielle as a trainer off and on for 19 years and Quinton for at least half that. I think of them as family, and I'm pretty picky. The bonus is that they are both excellent trainers who really care about the good of the horse. They can take a horse to the top, but they won't sacrifice the horse's health, the rider's welfare or their ethics in the process. They have done a fabulous job training my Apaladin bred horses, as well as others, being sensitive to their individual needs. We've had a lot of fun over the years and enjoyed success in the show ring to boot. Their current location is amazing- the best feeling program I've ever seen, great pastures and turn out, several arenas and a beautiful location. It's like a mini vacation every time we go out there.
Kristi is a superb equestrian coach and trainer. Before being taught by Kristi I had been riding for several years and had been on a plateau for too long. I am an older adult and had been riding in lessons 2-3 times a week. The progress I made with Kristi was incredible (and immediate) even riding the same horse. Kristi sees the details and can tell/show her student how to fix the problems. In private or group settings, Kristi always brings a high level of energy to each lesson. Kristi is thoughtful, creative and focused on keeping it safe - for the horse and rider. In a group lesson environment, Kristi manages to make the lesson very effective and manageable even with students at different levels. My young adult daughter is also coached by Kristi. Her confidence as well as mine has improved significantly. I highly recommend Kristi Gates whether you want to excel in the competitive show ring or for pure pleasure.
I took lessons with Hillary for a year and I loved it. I got to ride all of the lesson horses because Hillary used each horse to help me with different areas of my riding. She coached me in my first and second show, and without her I would have been so much more nervous and I wouldn't have done as well. She is great with all ages of kids. I would recommend her without a second thought. She loves horses, kids, and teaching, everything that makes Equiventures an amazing place to take lessons.
I have had the pleasure of working with Nichole over the last 15 years. Her style of teaching is unique and amazing. Nichole has an ability to explain how to correctly use your body (posture, alignment, use of muscles, bones etc) to ride each stride, movement and gait of your horse in harmony. Her lessons are the perfect combination of fun, hard work and understanding the theory behind what you are working on. Nichole has a phenominal understanding of classical dressage theory and shares this knowlege freely with her clients through many modalities. Her understainding of how people and horses learn and the biomechanics of dressage is unmatched.
Patty has been amazing with my 7 year old daughter and has given me some lessons as well. The horses and stalls are well maintained and Patty matching the horse to the rider very well. I reserve no hesitation in recommending her to any one interested in riding, no matter your level.
I have been taking dressage lessons with Carol for 10 years and it has been an amazing journey. I have learned so much and have ridden a variety of different horses. Carol is very flexible and does what she can to work with my schedule. I have learned lots from her and the horses i take lessons on.
Super friendly, very clean set up & beautiful horses.
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.
My 6 year old daughter is taking her first horse back riding lessons from The Red Horse Farm. Ihave to say it is truly an amazing place. She has learn so much in only 3 lessons and to be able to watch her smile and enjoy every moment is a wonderful experience. Everyone at The Red Horse Farm is friendly, and it feels more like you are part of the family. Susan is teaching my daughter and I could not have asked for a better teacher. 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!
Jim was kind and courteous. It's great that they have a covered arena. The instructor was fine, but I decided not to continue with lessons due to health issues.
