    I have been looking for a new trainer for about a year now. So glad I found Aleya! She is amazing! Very patient and kind but at the same time has high expectations. She is very clear when explaining things and always willing to tell you all the whys and what-fors. She will make you a great rider!!

    Aleya is amazing at explaining things in a way thats so easy to understand. She can match your learning style to how she teaches you so it makes it so easy to progress. She really cares about her students and the horses and she will go above and beyond every time. I highly recommend her!!

    I gained so much experience working with Aleya. I was introduced to horse behavior, and also taught basic handling and care for a horse. Learning to ride starts from the beginning, catching your horse in the pasture, safely, to grooming and tacking. Riding also involves learning how your form and posture play a big part. Aleya will teach you this and to correctly sit in the saddle and be a balanced rider. I also liked how Aleya challenged me to be a better rider . Aleya is knowledgeable about horses, In all aspects and has a true passion and love for horses.

    Aleya is an amazing trainer. She has been working with my daughter for the past 2 years. She pushes her to work hard and do her best. She loves her students as much as she loves her horses.

    Frequently asked questions

    When shopping around for a riding instructor here are some things to look for:

    -Condition of the horses, if you can see ribs or open sores (especially on the horses' back) which are  left unatended stay away!

    -Watch a lesson given to a current student before signing up.  You can see what their training style is like and if it is compatible with you (or your child) and it is free.

    -Talk to the current students, how long have they been with this trainer?  How much improvement have they made?  What do they like or dislike?

    -Ask lots of questions, I can't stress this enough.  I love it when I am asked a ton of questions by a perspective client. Any trainer that gets annoyed, "talks down" to you, can't answer or their response isn't clear is probably not the best choice.

    -Remember that there is no governing body for Riding Instructors. There are no guidelines or rules because there is no one to enforce them.  So anybody can have a couple of horses and call themselves a "trainer". 

    -A "certified" trainer or instructor only shows that person had enough money and spare time to go through the 2 week course. Which is good, but don't pass up a non-certified instructor that you connect with for certified one that is so-so.
