There is a new owner, and she's really pleasant. Nice indoor arena.

This was an appalling experience! When we arrived at the farm there were no introductions, just a reprimand from the owner, Angie, for being a few minutes late! I would not have minded this so much but for the fact that it took over a month to get a response from many phone and email messages to book our lessons - we finally had to contact Groupon to get the lessons booked! Angie was rude and abrupt and it felt as though we were a huge inconvenience. She was not very attentive to my daughter during any part of the lessons and often snapped at her and reprimanded her for not doing things correctly. On top of that she spent a great deal of time texting on her cell phone instead of teaching. If we had just wanted some time with a horse with a few pointers we would not have booked what we thought were going to be actual lessons. For a young girl to be told "I'm tough on you because I want you to be safe" is a real cop out - safety is very important but this woman needs to learn how to teach instead of barking instructions and intimidating her student. On the flip side, we were treated to an amazing experience with another teacher named Megan for the final lesson. She walked my daughter through everything as you would expect, from the grooming to the way to ride and she gave 100% of her attention for the entire time. Megan was fantastic and our experience with her instruction was worlds apart from working with the owner.

I think some explanation about what was involved in the 1 hour lesson would be helpful. I felt the instructor was a bit hard on my 2 boys who had never even been on a horse before, she was distracted by other people talking toher and checking her cel
