Testimonials

"My experience boarding Riley at Graystone Equestrian Center has exceeded expectations in every way. Care is individualized and meticulous, training is top-notch, and the facility is beautifully managed. The atmosphere is upbeat and supportive and owners/trainers Kristin and Kendra are both knowledgeable and experienced and hands on in care and management -- a great combination. Riley has been here for three years now. If you are looking for a barn for you horse or if you have a young prospect that needs a good start, it's a barn you should consider."

"Having owned horses for many decades and owned my own farm as well, I can say without hesitation that the care at Graystone Equestrian Center is the best in the area! The rings are groomed frequently, stalls cleaned twice daily, pastures maintained, horses fed 3-4 times a day, buckets scrubbed and nothing is too much trouble for the attentive and kind staff. Organized, safe, clean and affordable. The horses and people are happy. Graystone delivers what the choosiest of dressage boarders are searching for.

I've been training with Kendra Hall for many months. She's observant and has brought things to my awareness that I never knew were causing issues for me and/or my horse. She's patient and articulate as she delivers results to riders and horses in her training program. There's a demand for correct work, yet no pressure through which the technique is executed. Clarity, consistency and an eagle eye are hallmark qualities. She can train from the basics to FEI levels. I've had many an 'ah hah' moment with Kendra. I finish my lessons with more progress and knowledge than I began them with, this resulting in a huge confident smile on my face."

"Competent, patient, compassionate are three words I would use to describe Kristin and Kendra, in working with their horses, students, horses, and their owners. From starting youngsters, to working with upper level horses, the training isn't altered. It's always slow and steady progress without pressure. Kindness and care for the well being of the horse is emphasized. "

"Danica (my 7 year old Haflinger/Spotted Draft cross mare) and I have been working with Kendra Hall for a year. We were really struggling with Danica throwing her shoulders and basically going wherever she wanted to, as well as being quite the opinionated girl. In just a few lessons, our rides have greatly improved. With Kendra's guidance, we worked on keeping Danica much straighter and balanced. We have also set boundaries for Danica and I am riding her through it with much less drama on my part. We went from barely being able to walk and change directions to being able to ride her in a nice rhythmical trot. Kendra is providing me the "tools" to work with Danica.
