Hillary Carlson was amazing in working with our twins for their first lessons.  Both of our girls have special needs and she exceeded our expectations in how she treated them.  We are grateful that she was their first experience, we have found our long-term coach!

Hillary has been teaching my 6 year-old daughter riding lessons for about a month now and we will not go anywhere else.  She is patient, kind, and SO knowledgeable and professional to a tee.  You can truly tell that she loves what she does and it is apparent in the lessons and attentiveness she gives each and every one of her students! 5 Stars!

My daughter just started with Hillary this summer and has had under 10 lessons...within such a short time, I can see an amazing change already in her confidence, listening skills, and she has such a great positive attitude!!!  She wants to be more involved with other things and is just so happy in general.  Hillary has an amazing gift for teaching these young children with her horses.  I see such bright eyes and the want to learn when we're there.  If you're on the fence about starting lessons, I highly recommend her program!!! Hillary is truly amazing!!!
