“Laura – thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with our mare, Hillie. We often get compliments on what an incredible horse she is and we give much credit to the foundation she received during her time with you!”

“I first met Laura when my daughters decided they would like to begin riding lessons. I was so pleased with her instructional style and knowledge. Her manner was quiet and calm and she always provided a very safe learning environment. I felt like these qualities were great for my girls to see and learn. The girls felt so good after each lesson because they realized how much better they were getting. Laura was very patient and encouraging with my more insecure daughter. She turned situations that would be very frustrating for her into minor speed bumps in building her self-confidence. Laura gave my younger daughter a firm beginning to becoming a very successful and skilled equestrian. She now owns and rides a 16.2h gray gelding OTTB and competes in the jumpers ring.
Now, some years later, I own my own horse and am riding as well. My horse is a beautiful 13 year old 15.2h Paint named Chocolate Riverdance. He is a talented, sweet, spook-proof gelding with a heart of gold. He is my best friend.
A short time ago, I decided I needed to improve my skill and seat and that the discipline of dressage would be perfect. I immediately thought of Laura Berne. I am so glad I did! Even after the first few lessons I felt a significant improvement. It is very exciting! Thank you Laura!”
