Deborah.... You are a teacher with a special touch.
The ability to allow others to open up and feel at home.
This is a precious gift you have been given.
It was obvious how at ease we all felt.
Everyone could truly be themselves.
Thank you Deborah!
I shall return to Blue Skies.
It holds a very dear place in my heart.
-A WIR ride
"Participating in the Women's Intuitive Riding at Blue Skies of Mapleview has been a dream come true for me. I longed to ride as a child and did not have the opportunity until adulthood. After riding in the states and abroad, with various teachers, I have finally found a stable where I feel 100% at home. The horses are much loved and well kept. It shows in their agreeable demeanor. I would happily ride any of them. Deborah's clear directions and patience have helped me become more confident with the horses, in and out of the saddle. An experienced and knowledgable horsewoman, Deborah continues to learn and shares what she has learned with her students; the mark of a truly gifted teacher. The student, the horse and the interaction between the two is the primary focus of instruction. I really appreciate this, as I have been to stables where the instructor has been less than present. I look forward to my morning at Blue Skies each week!" -M
"Riding mornings are very happy times for me. You are a wizard with both women and beast." -a Women's Intuitive Rider
"I could never thank you enough for your patience with me when I first started your class. I came to this class at a very vulnerable point in my life. Change was surrounding me and I needed some sort of constant, and longed for connection to horses. I never thought it was possible for me to defeat my fears. You and your horses will forever hold a special place in my heart and soul. I look forward to many more memories at Blue Skies." -a Women's Intuitive Rider
"It has been a wonderful experience for me and a chance that for some reason I had to take - and went for this time, thank GOD. Those horses represent something to me, strength, grace, guidance, endurance. I honestly feel it helped me to make this huge decision I have been in fear to make for years Deborah." -a Women's Intuitive Rider
