Bridge Acres is a warm friendly environment for you and your horse. I love riding at Bridge Acres because the horses and the trainers are very professional. I learned how much responsibility takes place in owning a horse. Helen, Daryl, and Liz are great instructors!

I have really learned a lot from riding at Bridge Acres for the past 4 years! I think that you provide great care and I always learn something in my lessons! It's a great experience owning a horse and caring for it! Someone is always there to answer my questions. Helen, Daryl, and Liz are great instructors! I love it!

For my daughter's fifth birthday, I decided to enroll her in the Bridge Acres Riding Program. I was immediately impressed with the professionalism of the staff, the cleanliness of the facility, and the calm disposition of the horses. It was obvious the this was a first-class operation with an emphasis on building a solid foundation of basic riding skills, equestrian education, and always, safety. Two and one half years later, Alexa loves riding more than ever and her confidence, discipline, and ability to follow directions have improved dramitically. I consider her "Bridge Acres Education" a wonderful investment and look forward to many more years, shows, and ribbons here.
