Jessica Baum:  Assistant Rider

"Bethany is a very dedicated teacher who is extremely talented. She has taught me about upper level competition and brought my riding and understanding of the sport to a whole new level. She gives 110 percent everyday with me in the ring, and she is very driven. I feel very lucky to haven learned so much from her."

Charlotte Weiss: Client

"I find Bethany to be knowledgeable and encouraging. She takes me seriously even though I am just an (elderly!) adult amateur. I find it impressive that someone so young is willing to help an older adult with issues that she obviously mastered years ago, probably without ever having to think about it! It is this willingness to help that really stands out. I appreciate Bethany's teaching skills as I continue to take lessons. She is an excellent teacher and gives her students 100%- working with them to identify their issues, proposing solutions, and helping them get the job done. She keeps the concepts clear, has a terrific eye and a deep understanding of dressage. And she is almost as pleased with your progress as you are! Unlike a lot of professional riders who also teach she is really good at it. You can tell she enjoys it. As long as you are serious about your riding she will do everything she can to help you. And it's also fun!"

Rene DiClimente: Client

"I felt Bethany was very professional and a great instructor. She helped me prepare for my next show, and her facility is absolutely beautiful, with very accommodating staff."

Erica Brant

"I've known Bethany for almost a year now. Before my first lesson with her, I had been through quite a number of different trainers. Being a Para-Equestrian, I have some limitations when it comes to riding dressage: my legs aren't as strong as an able-bodied rider, and my hands aren't as still. Trainers in the past have either not pushed me at all, or they expected me to be able to ride like their other students. Training with Bethany has been such a positive experience. I always look forward to learning something new every lesson. Bethany always pushes me to do the best I can. She also always finds different ways for me to accomplish something while riding, refusing to let my physical challenges get in the way. During a lesson I always feel like Bethany gives more than 100% while teaching, and she always makes sure to end it on a good note. I consider myself so fortunate to be able to learn from her, and I know my horse and I will just keep improving under her instruction!"
