Comments from MALT Students
"Courtesy Stable is a jewel within the city of Philadelphia. The setting is beautiful. Where else can you find horses in a residential neighborhood and on the border of some many riding trails?
I came to Courtesy Stable with fear in my heart and nervousness in my stomach. Soon I learned how to care for a horse, saddle him and then mount and ride him. The first time I mounted was quite a sensation. I was actually on a horse and had some degree of knowledge about what to expect and how to handle a horse.
Walt and Cynthia are patient, knowledgeable teachers. After my group sessions were completed, I signed on for some private lessons. I wanted to keep up my confidence and gain experience. At my age (over 60), I don't see myself galloping or jumping, however, I want to be able to participate in group excursions. I truly enjoy the atmosphere of Courtesy Stable and the support provided by the personnel. Each time I am there, it is a great learning experience and lots of fun."
