My granddaughter Lilly's first horse show, she had her first blue ribbon. So proud! Thank You Linda for sharing your talent as a trainer and dear friend and making my dream come true for Lilly. Linda you should be so proud for all your hard work training all your students. They all received ribbons, what a wonderful tribute to you as a trainer. Congrats to all the children. Linda we are all blessed to have you in our lives.
I absolutely love The Good Beginning Riding Centre! My daughter has been riding here for the past 3 years. She first came here as part of her therapy for Cerebral Palsy. Within 2 years she had made such great progress that Ms Linda worked extra with her so she could enter a competition, and not the Special Olympics. She won a First, Second and Third place! Thank you Ms Linda for seeing her potential. Linda has a beautiful stable, wonderful volunteers and a safe and loving atmosphere for children. She has the patience of a saint and loves her animals and students with her whole heart and soul. Her riding camps are by far the best. They are small, so you know that your child is being watched at all times. Full of knowledge and learning. And loaded with fun. Not only are there horses, but goats, chickens, guinea hens, several types of ducks, dogs and cats to love on too. It's Heaven on Earth.
I give 5 stars to this place because it's one of my daughter's favorite place to go, she is going there for about 3 years and she feels like it's her second home, Mrs. Linda is a very dedicated teacher, she is great on what she does, (maybe because it's on her blood to deal with horses all throughout her life). My daughter has learned a lot with Mrs. Linda and she has won many 1st places at shows with Mrs. Linda's skills!!!
The good beginning is an excellent place to teach children to love the nature instead being on computers and having brain wash like most of the children on this generation. My daughter learned to appreciate God's creations, and gives value on life in the simple way dealing with horses, goats, chickens,ducks and etc.
I RECOMEND THIS PLACE TO EVERYONE I KNOW including you guys that are reading this review, because it's worth it to see a smile on my daughter's face every time she goes there!!!
Great, great, great place!!!
This is the best barn to learn riding the correct way. Linda is the most wonderful trainer, she is always concerned about safety and makes sure all her riders learn this before they get on a horse. My granddaughter takes lessons with Linda. I have been around horses my whole life and I would not have any one else train her. Linda is very concerned about the health and well being of her horses and she passes that on to her students. Linda is the best!
This is not only "good beginnings," but a good place to stay! My girls have developed such great skill riding with Ms. Linda, and have made amazing friends, human and horse! This is very much a hands-on barn, where you learn and understand what goes into riding, from mucking stalls to grooming; from tacking up to riding in shows. If you want someone to groom your horse and work it so you can just show up and ride, this is not the barn for you.
I've been volunteering at the horse farm for over 4 years and know first hand that the animals are well cared for. Linda has ridden horses all of her life and is a world champion rider. She gives English lessons to children ages 4-14 years old, along with taking them on trail rides and to local horse shows. She also patiently teaches special needs children to ride while providing for their safety.
The Good Beginning Riding Centre is an amazing place for any rider to develop their riding skill. From learning the essentials of horses, such as grooming,leading and forming a special bond with your horse to, learning how to properly ride and care for these wonderful animals. I have been a rider at the barn for 3 years in August, and I can tell you myself, Mrs. Linda is a one of a kind instructor. Not only is she patient and understanding with her riders, but she also loves all of her animals. I can't put a limit on how passionate Mrs. Linda is about everything on her farm. When I first started riding at The Good Beginning Riding Centre, I barely knew anything about horses and I was timid around people I didn't know very well. Now, I know so much more about equines and I am still learning new things daily, I have come out of my shell and love talking to all of the friends I have made there. I learned how to earn my horses' trust and how to properly ride a horse or a pony. I have competed in many shows and always done very well at them. Mrs. Linda has the most amazing volunteers who help around the farm and has many safe horses you can trust to ride. The Good Beginning Riding Centre is my true second home. This barn is not like every other barn, you don't just learn to ride, you learn so much more! The Good Beginning Riding Centre also holds summer camps for kids to explore more about horses ,while having the time of their lives! The greatest thanks to Mrs. Linda and all of the wonderful things she has done. From the horses to the chicks; to the helpers, to the stables; this barn is truly wonderful!!! 10/10, Would recommend.
