Very knowledgable, patient instructor. Teaches you all about the care and way a horse thinks, and why you should do things as a rider. I feel I will be able to ride any horse with any type of tack.
I decided to get back into horseback riding about 8 years ago and started taking lessons with Kathy. I had ridden as a kid but never had much formal training. I found Kathy to be patient but thorough and I feel that I've learned a great deal from her. My husband, who had never ridden before, starting taking lessons about 3 1/2 years ago and we now often ride together. Last year, I made the big jump and got my very first horse (now boarded at Meadowsweet) Kathy went with me to help pick him out. Meadowsweet has many fun, low pressure activities and events for both students and boarders. A few examples are: clinics, off site trips, pony camp, and organized trail rides. Meadowsweet is located next to Chain O' Lakes and 8 miles of equestrian trails. Some of our lessons are working trail rides to the park. Kathy teaches lots of kids to ride but don't think that, because you're an adult, you can't take lessons!
I posted on Thumbtack on Friday. Bridget replied immediately. By the next day we drove out to meet her for a private lesson for our 4 1/2 year old horse enthusiast daughter. Bridget, her husband Neil, and her son Patrick (as well as Drip, the perfect gentleman pony) were absolutely amazing!!! We honestly couldn't have asked for a better first experience for our little one! We will definitely be continuing lessons with Bridget!
As a rider that's been in and out of the horse scene for the last 12+ years, I wanted a refresher on a few things, and Jen was the answer. As an instructor, she is straight to the point, makes you work to achieve your goals, is very patient, and most importantly, has excellent communication skills. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or a seasoned rider looking to improve on things (we all need it at times), she's the ticket. Overall great teacher, horses that you can actually learn on, and a well run business. Highly recommended! Pat
Super friendly environment, and they seem to be a very supportive and kind place to ride! Once I have the funds, I'll be starting lessons!
Beautiful horse farm and nice people
We have a quiet, drama-free barn in a country setting. It is easy to get to. You will have lots of personal attention from the instructors.
I was a young rider who stopped when thrown from an 18 hand horse....that said, I was nervous to find the right fit getting "back in the saddle"! I explored many websites in amd near the Chicago and northern suburbs looking for a stable that would not only be considerate of my history of a scary tumble, but also be assertive in helping me learn how to be a better rider. I used Thumb tack and almost immediately got a response from Katy @ McGrath. She was professional, poised, amd passionate about taking a customized approach to be regaining my level of comfort. I was blown away to see at my first lesson how clean and vast the arenas were, and that Ken himself was there to meet me and assist in my setup. A few lessons in I'm already feeling comfortable enough to be off the lunge for the majority of the hour, amd Katy couldn't be more patient and knowledgeable as to how my adjustments as we transition will build my basics....and hopefully get to competition or show level!!! I highly recommend Katy and McGrath Stables for anyone looking for a personalized approach and warm environment.
