"I don't have a horse but my daughter takes riding lessons from Denise Montoya, and it's been a wonderful experience for my daughter. She's been taking lessons from Denise for a little over a year now and is quite good! She can now canter and is very confident on her lesson horse Stormy. Denise is very knowledgeable and patient. She is really big on safety of both the rider and the horse. She really cares about both, which in my book, makes a lot of sense. From my observations and hearing her explain things to my 11 year old, she is top notch! I highly recommend her for lessons!"

"I began taking lessons from Denise some months ago as a rider with no former introduction to horses. In a matter of months, she has given me not only a great foundation in equine safety and horsemanship, but how to communicate and develop a positive relationship with horses in my lessons.
Through Denise's process, I have learned basic equitation in both the Western and English styles in a way that is fun, safe, and with significant improvement in such a short matter of time. Denise is a great communicator, educator and horsewoman."
