Review for Tara Farm Rescue, Coventry, CT, USA
I have been to visit Tara Farm Rescue several times and am impressed with the work they do. I had my first riding lesson this week (have been wanting to do this for 55 years) and loved it! The young lady (volunteer) who instructed me was wonderful. She explained things about horses, about riding them, and how to communicate with them. She showed me how to brush the horse & clean his hooves, saddle & bridle him and lead him to the ring. We worked in the ring for half an hour. I learned to go & stop & back up, to keep him on the perimeter of the ring, and I worked him through some obstacles. Then she had me undress him (I am sure there is a term for this but I'll be darned if I can remember), brush him and check his hooves again and lead him back to his stall. She was very professional, relaxed and friendly (even if she wasn't middle aged). I feel I got a lot for my money (which goes to the rescue farm, not to her) and signed up for my next class with her next week!
