“My daughter's instructor is Rachel and she is very patient and nurturing to her students.”(ke.P).
I've tried a few other places and do think that North Gait Equestrian Center provides the best lessons in the area. The horses are well cared for and the instructors are really knowledgeable. A really positive experience! (Suzanne).
Both of our kids tried other stables and riding programs, but they have loved their experiences at horseback riding lessons ).
