Myself and my five year old daughter were new to the horse/show scene when we joined Touch of Class Farm 2.5 yrs ago. Over the time my daughter received private lessons, she showed and placed in many shows against children twice her age.\r
She had, and has, a great deal of talent but failed to progress beyond a certain point due to the lack of a quality horse for which she could advance.\r
When I questioned my child's lack of development, the middle-aged business owner went crazy! She sent me the most unprofessional emails I have ever read and tried to personally attack me and my family.\r
I believe the quality of horse at TOC is WELL BELOW AVERAGE. My seven year old was routinely asked to ""break"" new horses to the farm, NOT a smart (or safe) idea!\r
If you are looking to just spend money and kill some time on BASIC lessons, TOC fits the bill. If you want quality for your money and your child to progress as a rider, check out other farms in the area like Lockmoor Farms in Lebannon...
Pros: Spacious Facilities
Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE!
