Thank you for hosting us for the PATH certification. Your thoughtfulness and professionalism were really inspiring to me (well, to all of us, I'm sure!). The facility was beautiful and so meticulously kept. The horses were happy, healthy, and honest, and your herd was so diverse and vibrant! The riders, as you know, were one in a million - so sweet, and their families were so trusting and kind. And the volunteers........
