Denise is great! My daughter has enjoyed riding at Forecast Farms since day one. Denise not only teaches the art of riding, she makes sure that you learn the background of it all in such a positive way. At Forecast Farms Denise makes you feel like family every time!



Fairfax, VA

Denise is an excellent confidence builder. The message in her lessons are clear and uncomplicated, yet cover all the basics one needs to move up through the ranks. She pays close attention not only to the horse’s way of going but also the rider so the two are on the same page. She’s the perfect instructor for the beginner as well as the adult – her patience astounds!



Haymarket, VA

Forecast Farms is a wonderful place to learn and Denise is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is very knowledgeable, exhibits a good attention to the fine details of riding, always keeps safety in mind, and is able to explain things in a way that my daughter can understand. My daughter absolutely loves taking lessons and really enjoys the time spent with the horses and with Denise.


Jessica Mazur

Arlington, VA

Forecast Farms Inc. provided me a newfound confidence in riding. Denise taught me how to become a safe and effective rider instead of a passenger. Each lesson provided me with exercises to help strengthen my mind, my body, and most importantly, the balance and understanding between horse and rider. Not only did Denise provide me with excellent training but she also took the time to teach me proper horsemanship and general farm management. Thank you for everything Denise!



Fairfax, VA

Denise provides a safe, fun, and positive learning environment. My five-year old daughter loves taking lessons with her. During lessons, she is always calm and is able to keep my daughter focused and interested. I highly recommend her to anyone that is interested in lessons for their child or themselves.
