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!

My two boys attended last nights first class. They were sooo excited before and were over the moon after! We drove an hour to get there and an hour back – so worth it! Learned a lot in a fun, hands-on environment. Big Phil was amazing and calm! The boys loved him! What a sweetheart. As for you Aleka, AWESOME job informing the kids, teaching direction and making it fun! Keep up the great job, this is such an important step for horsemanship! Very happy with the class – can’t wait for the next one!
