What I like:
Clean, nice indoor and barns, well maintained
What needs improvement:
Horsemanship knowledge of workers. Very nice, but failed to communicate well.

Riders over 18 were NOT required to wear helmets!!!! The owner didn\'t wear a helmet and showed poor judgement. People who Are good riders or THINK they are good riders are not invincible to accidents and the flight behavior of horses.
