    Nora is an amazing instructor. She makes lessons not only educational and productive but also fun! She works with clients and Horses at the level they are at and helps them to progress at the level they are comfortable; all the while encouraging them and keeping them positive. I highly recommend her.

    Nora is the best trainer I have ever worked with! She is challenging, fun, and forgiving and best part is she CARES about her students more than just a paycheck.
