What People Say

“Thanks so much for your help when I was trying out for the equestrian team at Cornell! I still remember how stressed and nervous I was and I couldn’t have made it without your help and support. I still use some of the techniques we talked about before each ride and I found they truly make an impact on my rides. As captain this year, we had one of our most successful seasons ever, earning a spot to go to nationals for the first time ever and defending our Ivy League Championship for the third year in a row.”
