Anita is a knowledgeable, patient trainer and instructor. I have been taking lessons for some time, and came to A.N.D. Stables with basically no real knowledge of horses. I am not exactly young, but have always been interested in horses and now with my kids on their own, have more time to devote to learning about horses and riding. Anita was so patient with me and so encouraging. She has really helped me to learn about horses, riding and to develop self confidence. She is very intuitive and really knows horses. Most importantly she respects the horse. Her love and devotion to her horses and dogs is evident, and is reflected in her work. I appreciate her dedication and sensitivity and recommend A.N.D. Stables for people who love and appreciate horses.
I started working and taking lessons from Anita many years ago and shortly after I started half-leasing one of her horses. When I started riding at A.N.D. Stables I knew how to get on a horse and just ride around. What I didn't know was the correct and proper way to effectively ride. Since then she has taught me many techniques and has improved my riding skills significantly. From what I have learned from Anita in the past years I have grown as a rider and also have become very successful at shows. I can go into a class with over 30 entries and win the entire class. She has increased my confidence level as well as my knowledge and willingness to learn and gain more experience. I would highly recommend A.N.D. Stables to anybody pursuing lesson instruction, training, or boarding.
I highly recommend AND Stables for riding lessons. Anita is an excellent teacher who emphasizes good horsemanship, excellent technique, and the importance of a good relationship between horse and rider. Her methods are well-grounded in equine science. The horses are healthy and well cared for. They are eager to interact with people. My son has gained self-confidence that has rippled out into all areas of his life.
