Funny how the previous 3 negative reviews were all written on the same date. Perhaps someone has a grudge against Joanne.....seems to me there is a more appropriate way to handle that. Anyway, I have nothing but good things to say about Joanne and her lesson program. She knows a lot and has proven herself to be a great teacher. The horses living at the farm are a bit overcrowded and the pastures could be in better shape....but none of the animals seem to be hungry or lacking in any way. Remember, you get what you pay for and if you are looking for cheap boarding, yes you probably will get less grass and more mud.
I have ridden her for a little more than a year and I lease and Johanne loves all the horses and she is the best rider I've ever seen. Any house that's underweight is given more nourished food and she hand trains horses. If you want to start riding then instantly go to a show this isnt the place because Johanne makes sure you know what your doing.
What a wonderful place. The horses are well cared for and the instruction is wonderful. While the pastures may not be the largest or greenest, the animal care and compassion and quality instruction well makes up for it.
