What clients say:


" I just wanted to mention the gem you have at URC! As a longtime horse lover, mother and grand mother of equine enthusiasts I have had and witnessed many riding instructors (certified and not). Few if any have exhibited the patience, love of kids and horses and expertise of Rachel, our grand daughter's Saturday and now Friday evening instructor. In my experience, you either get excellent riders but not cut out for teaching or good riders that are bossy and too critical of the kids, usually because they think they are so good themselves. Many times it is evident they are doing it as a job. Rachel is one of a very few instructors in my 50+ year horse history that actually reinforces the the things the riders do best and encourages them to better their weaknesses. I see from the bench her respect for each rider in her classes and her love and knowledge of each horse."   RB
