I simply cannot not say enough about Erin Longworth and West View Stables. As an adult beginning rider, I was both excited and nervous about returning to riding after a 30 yr hiatus.  At our first meeting Erin instantly set me at ease. She had me interacting with the horses immediately as I helped her tack up Tin Can Tucker; clearly focused on safety while teaching, in an unassuming manner, about how to flick the horse and prepare him for tack.

Needless to say, I had a lot to relearn (both in riding skill and horse care). Erin, has made the process a true joy while providing enough challenge to move you forward.  My 10 year old daughter is also taking lessons and absolutely adores Erin and the wonderful lesson horses.
After expressing a desire to own a horse she helped identify a suitable lease matched to my current skills and able to move up as I progress.  I have since purchased my first horse, Cashing in the Chips (Chipper) – realizing a life long dream of horse ownership.
Erin’s training skills, knowledge of horses, and her desire to share her love of horses are an exceptional combination. She truly welcomes all riders of all levels and is keen to work with you to define your riding and horse dream goals. She is a fantastic teacher, ensuring student progress and building confidence in line with your riding goals be they riding purely for pleasure or competing at local, national, or wold levels.
