Bethany Pappani Training - Arena Lesson Testimonials
"My four-year old daughter has the pleasure of taking lessons with Bethany, and was able to start at age 3!
My daughter is absolutely thrilled every time she has a lesson, and is sad to leave every time it is over.
Bethany has a special way not only with the horses, but also her students, and it shows in both.
It is a privilege to have someone as outstanding as Bethany teaching lessons right here in the back country, and we highly recommend her to everyone.
We especially appreciate that Bethany includes our daughter in caring for the horse as well, not just riding, and she comes out after every lesson beaming (and eager to have a horse of her own!).
We are grateful our daughter is fortunate enough to have lessons with such a great teacher and to learn so much about the joys of being around horses at such a young age.
Bethany has given her and us a great gift."
