“Your generosity continues to amaze me even after all these years!! Thank you for always working with our limitations on our daughter's schedule. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen her happier than this week. You are The Best Person I know.”
– Trish Brashear
“I have learned more in your lessons than I had learned in the many years I had been riding before I came to The Equestrian Reserve. Your program has not only taught me how to ride better, but I have done things while riding I would have never dreamed of. I have learned so much that I know I would never have learned had I not been recommended to your barn. I am not only a better rider, but a better worker and overall better person from my time working with you and about having a good work ethic. I know that I will use what I have learned throughout life, from college essays to any jobs I will have in the future. I want to thank you again for everything you have given me and helped me become.”
