    Donna is a great instructor that starts with the basics, but makes sure everyone has fun too! She has given lessons to my daughter and my mother-in-law (both love Donna). She does pony rides and trail rides too!

    In addition to providing a caring, family focused atmosphere, Jade Meadows Stables offers a teaching style that is realistic and yields results. Young riders are taught what to expect in any situation, from groundwork to show riding, with a constant focus on both horse and rider safety. Students are encouraged to perform to the best of their ability by instructors who truly care about their growth, and are consistently provided detailed and constructive feedback regarding their progress. Jade Meadows' positive, growth focused environment makes it the perfect choice for the serious student and casual horse lover alike!

    Mrs. Donna was born to teach, coach, and train. She will tier up riders from where they start. Taking riders from begginer to intermediate and intermediate to advanced. She is studied in equine, and will train you the right way. If you are interested in lessons she is the only person I would recommend. Trail rides, birthday pony parties, horse training, and much more.
