WHAT THE PARENTS ARE SAYING...
"The Red Barn is not simply providing riding lessons to children. The instructors and staff teach them life skills that translate to other relationships and provide a solid foundation to develop productive lives. With mutual respect for horse and child, The Red Barn provides an experiential moment that transcends a rudimentary after-school activity and fosters the development of "game-changing" confidence that alters a child's life forever."
"It is the ONE PLACE she comes where we don't have to worry. She calls it her peaceful place where she feels the happiest."
"It's what motivates him in other aspects of his life. He just loves being there. And for me, it's one of the few places I don't worry about him socially. I know they "get" him. He's free to be himself and for that I am more than grateful."
