“I began taking lessons at Morning Mist when my family moved to Virginia in 2002. I'd taken lessons previously in New York, but I didn't experience the independence and responsibility that Nancy allowed me to take on with the horses at MMF. I'd never heard of dressage, either, which I came to really appreciate in my lessons. I absolutely love the ponies, and Nancy is the greatest! I wish I were able to get out to Berryville more often!"

“My younger sister just began to go to Ms. Nancy's for lessons this summer. She has had the best summer of her life. She gets to help out with the horses and take lessons. Ms. Nancy has been a terrific trainer for her and has become more of a friend to her and our family. The horses on the farm are also wonderful to work with. It is very clear that they are a priority for Ms. Nancy and she takes such good care of them. The farm is always clean and the well kept. My sister has had 5 lessons and competed in her first competition this weekend. She did outstanding! She earned 6 ribbons and a trophy all thanks to Ms. Nancy's effort and hard work to train her properly. Overall, the Morning Mist Farm and the people and animals associated with it have made a great impact on our daily life. It's great to see my sister enjoy something so much, and greater to see her succeed in it. Thanks to you Ms. Nancy.

"I boarded my three horses at Morning Mist Farm for eight years. They were always well cared for and the barn is run exactly how I would run one myself. I also took riding lessons from Nancy and she helped me to advance. As an adult learner, she was a colleague-teacher, and never made me feel stupid or not at ease during the learnin process. She had a way of explaining things that made me able to do them."

"Nancy runs an incredible barn. Her horses are friendly and make learning to ride a breeze. She's easy to work with and is always willing to work around a busy students schedule. I started out having never been on a horse before really, but really wanted to. In no time, Nancy had me riding with confidence and I had started learning to jump as well. Morning Mist is definitely a great place to learn whether you have no experience riding or a lot. The experience will be fun and unforgettable."
