Very unprofessional and odd experience- we were turned away for being 2 minutes late and told the coach was home sick- she then showed up right after we'd left, but we were just up the road picking flowers & could see her return. Very odd behavior.

It is hard to believe that the same person that I dealt with has such great review. I, like liz d., had a terrible experience contacting Carmen. She postponed lesson hours before it happened and when I tried to resched, she ignored my texts. brutal!!

What a horrible experience!!! We bought the Groupon in the hopes of introducing daughter to riding. Took three weeks trying to contact her daily and book our appointments! First appt, no show (no call/email) same for 3rd lesson. Appalling business!

Carmen was friendly and I had a great ride/lesson. She was also great with my 7 year old son who is now going to try a ride himself!

Connect and Ride has far surpassed our expectations. After 3 lessons, my daughter is very much inspired by Carmen's patience, knowledge, insight, ease and compassion for both horse and rider. We've found our new stables and instructor! :)

Instruction was fine but very difficult to make appointment for lessons. Have had the first lesson but the two following lessons were cancelled.

Two adults that accompanied the kids during the horse back riding lesson said that Carmen is an excellent teacher with a structured approach to teaching. One of the adults providing feedback is a retired teacher. 0f course, the kids loved the lesson (first of four lessons). Book well in advance for summer lessons.

if you buy the groupon, book right away with connect and ride, they book the weekends fast. It was a great time though.

We've used 2 out of the 4 lessons, and it has been a great experience so far.

From Our Editors

Nestled in the rolling hills outside Saanich, Connect and Ride's horseback-riding facility sits in the center of a pastoral wonderland. A rustic red farmhouse serves as a gathering point for horses and their caretakers, while an enclosed outdoor riding area hosts Western and English-style riding lessons. To train more advanced riders and their horses, staff members bring out jump fences and other obstacles. Instructors also lead multiple-hour horseback-rides along cool, wooded trails that sometimes end with a swim at a nearby lake.
