How Parent's Feel About Our Camps

"Emily has an amazing time at your riding camp this summer.  Everyday she came home very excited with new stories about the horses and what she did that day".  Brenda

"I wholeheartedly recommend a camp put on by the Kathy Harrison School of Horsemanship at Shannick Farm. At the Spring 2010 camp, my daughter received professional yet friendly instruction on horseback each day. As well, she received instruction on horse handling, lunging and stable management which are equally important skills to learn and something that she would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in. These lessons, along with creative and fun games, made a huge difference in her confidence around horses and made for a thoroughly fun week!"  Wendy

"Kathy Harrison is a riding teacher and horse owner EXTRAORDINAIRE. From the moment I met Kathy I knew my daughter was in the best hands possible. Kathy does not treat riding lessons as a job, it is her life. Kathy has a calm, kind and reassuring manner, and offers encouraging comments that allow my daughter to feel confident, secure and happy when riding. Kathy's knowledge and years of commitment to Horsemanship is evident in the excellent lessons, camps and clinics she provides at Shannick Farm. I highly recommend Kathy Harrison School of Horsemanship and would encourage anyone to seriously consider Kathy's expertise, its been a pleasure knowing Kathy Harrison." Cheryl

Just a quick response to say we thought the camp was really great! Noah loved it and did progress and learn a lot. He's very enthusiastic about riding and hopes to do more in the near future! Thank you so much!"  Carolyn

"Sabine had a fabulous time at camp. I really appreciated the emphasis on safety and understanding horse behaviour. Sabine would definitely like to come to camp again, hopefully in the spring. I have recommended your camps and lesson programs to everyone. I have some great photos of the girls at camp that I will try to send to you."  Nic
