Client and Customer Comments
|"East Coast is definitely a first rate facility. I am such a fan of this barn and it's staff. ...I took hunter/jumper lessons with Sharon a few years back. Sharon...is a top notch instructor in addition to being a skilled rider. This is a really large facility. They have acres and acres of pasture for turnout. They have plenty of lesson horses, so it isn't just the same 5 horses plodding around the arena day after day hour after hour. There is both an indoor and outdoor arena that is very well maintained. A lot of barns will wet their arena to keep the dust down leading to mud puddles. I haven't had this happen once at East Coast. I really can't sing this barn's praises enough!|
|"I wanted to write and thank you for the great experience I enjoyed at your facilities...my instructor, was phenomenal. She was friendly, patient and obviously very passionate about ECETC and the horses... I was delighted to share the morning with your center."||
"Thanks for the awesome time today at East Coast - my family loved it."
||"We did the 30 min trail ride Groupon on new years eve. Your staff will probably remember her because she refused the little pony and demanded a "real horse." It was pretty funny. Anyway, she loved it. Really loved it. ...I'm obviously doomed to bankruptcy"|
