Pegasus Riding School Testimonials

As a riding instructor, teaching for 10 + years, Pegasus gives me the fine tuning and tools to take me further in my riding and my teaching. Anne McKay is an excellent instructor that has helped me further my riding and teaching skills. It is well worth the 50 mile drive to access this quality of teaching.

Since my daughter has been riding at Pegasus I have noticed a change in her self confidence, her homework habits, and her physical endurance. Our experience has been so positive! My daughter has not only gained a great riding foundation, she has also learned all the background care and grooming responsibilities that come with riding. The teaching staff is incredible!! Safety is foremost and each lessson is a positive and exciting experience.

I've boarded with Anne McKay and Suzanne Wepplo at two barns now. (I prefer the current barn, Pegasus, because of it's warmth). My horses have had excellent care and great hay and grain. My daughter trained with them for years and had great success at the shows. My mare and I are hopeful of moving up the levels. Thanks to Anne and Suzanne for all their help and care.

Pegasus Riding School gave me the supportive instruction to make a transition from a successful Western Reining Amateur champion to the intricacies of dressage. They helped me find a perfect horse. Besides a great Riding School, everyone is friendly and the horses get excellent care.

Before I found Pegasus I had ridden for 5 years. I've always been a very timid and nervous rider. Riding at Pegasus has helped me gain more confidence in a short amount of time than I ever could imagine! The instructors are very patient and always willing to work at your comfort level!

My daughter has been training with Pegasus for a year and a half. WE even bought a horse from them and board her there. I could not be more pleased with the knowledge, dedication and kind treatment of the horses! Each trainer is better than the next. It is a true family! My daughter started off never riding before and you should see how far she has progressed because of Pegasus. It has been a life changing experience for her and me as well!

Dear Suzanne, Thanks for everything you have taught me for riding. You are so fun to have for a teacher. You never get mad when my heels aren't down or my butt isn't high enough in the saddle. I can't wait to learn more dressage. Your the BEST!! Kayla

We became part of the Pegasus family in July 2010 when my daughter (age 6) started riding. We've found a supportive and compassionate barn at Pegasus, where dedication to horses and horsemanship is clearly evident i every decision the stable makes. As a veterinarian, it is extremely important to me to see progressive care for the horses, and a strong message of horse welfare imparted to all riders. I do not use the word "family" lightly - this stable is family and we are fortunate to be a part of it!

I had the opportunity to be a working student at Pegasus Riding School this past summer. I feel so fortunate to have a source of such high quality instruction available so close to where I live. I learned more from Anne McKay in a few months than I have from years of previous riding. Her high expectations helped me to create some major improvements in how I ride and train, and I continually refer to what I learned at Pegasus even when I ride elsewhere. Anne's teaching begins where it classically should - with the rider, and she made it clear to me how even minute adjustments to my position or aids can be the difference between helping and hindering my horse's performance. When it comes to classical training and good horse management, Pegasus Riding School is now my gold standard.
