"I am a horse trainer and my 9-year old daughter has been taking riding lessons at another facility off and on for the last 4 years. I heard about Lisa, and set up a trial lesson. I was so impressed with her ability to teach basic horsemanship in a manner that my daughter totally connected with that I signed her up for a series of lessons. Lisa makes it fun, yet challenges my daughter. Lisa is a beautiful rider and competitor, and I feel she will be able to take my daughter to the top levels of showing horses while having a good time doing it!"

"I have known Lisa for almost 10 years and she was a riding instructor to me and my children off and on for about 5 of those years. We have had numerous trainers and riding instructors in our lifetimes and Lisa is among the finest. What stands out about Lisa is her tenacity for doing things right. She is astute at matching a rider with a horse of suitable talent and capabilities. Her lessons are conducted in a manner that emphasizes safety, discipline, and fairness to both horse and rider."

"Lisa helped me improve my riding skills significantly through her equitation perspective. She also helped my horse get comfortable with her ever-evolving job through skill, patience and perseverance. Lisa does a wonderful job with young beginners. She also has the ability to work with the "older" students and their numerous bad habits. My situation was unique, and I am very grateful to Lisa for taking the chance and working with us."
Betsy Pankey, Franktown, CO
