I have had a lifelong dream of having a horse, which I'm just getting around to as an adult. I started taking sporadic lessons with a trainer several years ago and decided that I wanted to start riding on a regular basis. My boyfriend was new to horses, but decided to try out riding with me as well. We were happy to have the option to do lessons together with Laura and Michelle, with time spent on both of us at our respective levels. Everything has changed, since I began working with Laura and Michelle. In six months, my knowledge, confidence, understanding and everything about horses has increased exponentially. I am able to ride their horses and learn about each type of horse with our lessons. I had limited experience riding Western and had never been exposed to dressage prior to working with Michelle. I have learned dressage and gained confidence riding either Western or English. I have also learned that there is more to working with horses than just riding, and Michelle has taught me how to interact with, care for, and conduct myself around horses. She is patient, kind and encouraging with her students and still sets the example of the right kind of handling with the horses. I have also had the pleasure of watching her assist my beginner boyfriend to become an accomplished rider of her non-beginner horse. This has been truly amazing to see the bond form between these two. Michelle's horses are fantastic to ride, and it is great to see trainers that match up horses to the rider so well. As result of working with Laura and Michelle, I am currently leasing and training my own horse with their guidance and direction. I will be purchasing the horse that they located for me in the near future and accomplishing my lifelong goal of working with a horse. None of this would be possible without their guidance and support, as they are giving to their animals and the people that they work with. Michelle offers a support system and education that transforms those of us non-horse people into qualified horse riders and owners. Thank you for everything that you have done for me!
