"Jaime has been my Riding Instructor for the past 7 years. She has helped me build my confidence over fences, supported me at shows and has made me a better rider. I have not made it easy for her, I like difficult horses! She has helped me through some challenging moments with my OTTBs and I highly recommend her."  Kathleen Boyle
