Here is what some of our previous training clients have said:

Chex’s Mom: Alicia took my very green horse for 3 months and did an amazing job with him. He has come so far in such a short time and I couldn’t be happier. Alicia and her girls also took very good care of him and kept him happy and content while he was in their care. Thanks again Alicia, Job WELL DONE !

Max’s Mom: Alicia did a great job with my horse. She brought him along faster than any trainer has in the past. He has a great base and she just added the finishing touches. I’m ready to head into the show ring now and I can’t wait!

Lulu’s Dad: Alicia took my unbroke 12 year old Clydesdale mare and within 3 months was showing First Level dressage and winning! Couldn’t ask for better results! Thanks to the Hylee Training team.

Havanna’s Mom: Hi Alysia, I wanted to tell you they bought Havana. Now I am feeling a bit sad but know she is going to a great home. I didn’t tell you the woman has a training barn and is a judge and trainer. And wanted you to know she thought you were great just like we do! You did a fabulous job with her Alysia. And I will continue to highly recommend you! They aren’t picking her up for a week or so. After she goes we will start off with lessons with Bob and perhaps a once a week riding with Blondie then my when you feel Blondie is ok my daughter can start lessons on Blondie and they can have lessons together? Have a great day!and again thank you for your great work !

April’s Mom: Thanks so much for taking and breaking my horse who hadnt even walked with another trainer and flipped over backwards. I am so impressed with the progress you have made! Thanks for all your patience and understanding and above all the tools you have given this horse to continue on!

Liza’s Mom: Thanks for the great horse. My daughter is now after two weeks only riding and winning in the short stirrups. Liza is amazing and is really keeping her safe.

Betty: Honestly – when Alicia brought her stallion, Invested Many Pennies, to a fox hunt I thought it was a disaster in the making. Alicia kept her well mannered stallion at the back of the pack with helping other riders  all while controlling a stallion behind 30 horses galloping. I was very impressed to say the least.
