My daughter has been taking lessons since she was 5 (8 yrs old now) and I've watched not only how my daughter is trained in western riding, but also how Jenny and Spike interact with both the kids and parents. My daughter has really matured through these lessons, it's something she and I eagerly look forward to each week. The horses are gentle, the lessons strong on fundamentals.\r
With Jenny and Spike, everything is straight forward, no B.S., what you see is what you get. The stables where the horses are boarded are clean, the horses well fed, watered, and provided adequate shade. Horse owners, you are responsible for your horses! You pay someone for a service, they provide that service, but you have a responsibility to be on site regularly and maintain the relationship with your animal and oversee it's proper health care.\r
The negative comments on this site are a bad joke. Get a life, people, take responsibility for your own neglect.
Pros: hands on training from experienced owners
Cons: not enough hours in the day
