TEC Makes a Difference…

This email from the mom of one of our new riders:

Hi.  I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter is loving the horseback riding lessons this summer! She seems so confident and sure of herself when she is riding, not one sign of her ADHD or anxieties!  You have such a wonderful program and I feel blessed to have found you.  Thank you so much! Also, I would be very interested in having her continue lessons in the fall.
