I have know Allie for over 5 years, during this time she has helped me gain experience and confidence with my once difficult mare Navi. My mare has gone from and extremely anxious and difficult to handle horse to a horse that is now calm and reliable. Allie is an understanding and caring person whom I would have no hesitation recommending to any rider wanting to improve on their riding skills or horsemanship.
I met Allie after I had been terrified at 11 yrs old by an OTTB. I have known her for over 10 years and she has been the best intructor anyone could ask for, offering support whenever I reached out in desperation for years after I left town. Her teaching style is fun and safe. with instructions given clearly no matter what your riding level. It has been my pleasure to be her student and would highly recommend her to anyone.
I have been a client of Powder Monkeys Business since 2013. Allie taught me how to ride from a raw beginner, and in the time I have been attending lessons and receiving advice and support from Allie, my skills and confidence have increased enormously. I also had my horse retrained by Allie and could not be happier with the results. With Allie's training and lessons to both myself and my horse, we have formed a wonderful rider and horse relationship and I could not be more thankful, nor could I recomment PMB any higher, what a wonderful business.
I approached Allie at PMB in November 2016 for help with both my riding and my horse. I was just starting to ride again after 20 plus years of no riding with a horse that knew it. I lacked confidence as well as the knowledge to correct the problems I was having. I reached the point where I just kept putting off riding all together.
When the time came for my first lesson with Allie I was nervous, petrified and my anxiety was working over time. Within the first five minutes of being at Allie's and talking with her, I was calm and relaxed and I knew I had made the right decision .
Allie has helped me in so many ways, teaching me the skills to gain more control over my horse as well as many hew skills. Having regular lessons with Allie has given me much more confidence in my horse as well as in myself. Not only is Allie a compassionate instructor, ensuring her students get the most out of every lesson but she is kind and completely honest in everyway.
Allie and her team are also wonderful trainers and this shows in all of the horses at PMB, regardless of it being arena work or out on the trails.
If yiou are looking for a kind compassionate trainer or instructor, dont look past Allie and the wonderful team at PMB. You wont be disappointed.
