This is my first course horse class and I could not be more excited to explore their other offerings. This particular course inspires new ways of thinking and creativity. The instructor is magnetic and electric and masterful. The attendees are equally dedicated, sincere, and enthusiastic. The atmosphere is nurturing and motivating. I could go on, but see for yourself!
