I was searching for a place for my 8-year-old daughter to start taking lessons and Aleka came recommended by someone on Facebook. So happy with our choice in choosing Big Heart Equestrian to embark on this amazing journey. Aleka’ gentle, natural approach to riding is exactly what we were looking for. As a trainer, she is patient, kind and professional. Myself as well as my daughter had an instant connection with Aleka and her horses Rina and Phil. We are so thrilled to see our daughter develop skills and knowledge to possibly pursue riding professionally in the future with the guidance of Aleka! Best decision ever!
