I Loved this place. I gave my two Granddaughters 5 +6 lessons ,their first time . Alison was their instructor and she was fantastic and age appropriate in showing them how to be around a horse, grooming and feeding . When it was time to ride she had their full attention and they never were afraid. They are going for their second lesson soon. I HIGHLY recommend Tom Forehand Performance Horses for lessons.
