We had a great time! The staff member, Katie, was so sweet and our buddy horse, Finn, was so calm and had a funny personality. The facility was really nice and easy to find (with directions on Google). Would def do again!
We went with a group of 6, 5th grade girls. The stables are lovely, but guide was lack luster. We understood that this was not a lesson, because the guide did not fail to inform us several times, it's a Groupon I get the up-sell, and that's ok.
But the lack of guidance and preoccupation with the cell phone, left the parents with the job of guiding the riders more than anticipated And there was a young girl riding her horse around the stable, not sure if she was an assistant, but she offered no help.
I work with children K-5 and understand it's difficult working with children but a little finesse and prep would have been appreciated, it felt like we were an imposition instead of guests at the stable.
The horses were great and patient considering, my advice to parents visiting is to prep your group about handling the reigns, and getting on and off the horses to really get the most out of the experience. Can't go wrong riding horses though.
Great deal! I’m an adult trying to get back into riding after years of not riding. This was a great deal and the instructors and horses are great. I continued lessons after using the groupon and they are affordable and have flexible scheduling for what works for me. I’ve greatly increased my horsemanship and riding skills working with the instructors and plan on continuing riding here.
Took 4 children to Amethyst Performane Horses, and they were wonderful! I had everything go wrong, on my way there. Worst day ever. And they handled the children brilliantly, and turned my day around. Broken cell phone, lost without my GPS, etc. These warm hearts saved my daughter's afternoon.

About Amethyst Performance Horses
An avid rider since the age of 11 and instructor since 16, Lynne Hartman is dedicated to passing on her lifetime of experience working with horse to fledgling jockeys at Amethyst Performance Horses. Lynne tailors her lessons to all levels of riders, from those with an eye toward competition—several of her past students have won awards at the local, state, and national levels—to those who just want to ride for fun, to those who believe they can have more fun on a horse than on the neighborhood cats. The lesson program emphasizes equitation and working with the horse as a team, as well as learning how to groom, saddle, and bridle the horse when out of the saddle. Students have their choice of a wide range of riding styles, including Western, English, dressage, reining, and gaming.
