I started riding at Gale's Equine Facility in 1993 (I was one of those aduts who always wanted to ride as a kid, but didn't get a chance to do it) and have been riding there once a week ever since! As a teacher of thirty years, I know good teaching. Gale has an incredible amount of knowledge. Her certifications and awards attest to that. She is able to teach to all learners regardless of their age, level of experience, learning style or interest.Gale not only teaches you what to do, but why you are doing it. She is a learner herself and is always looking for ways to improve her teaching and to reach her riders. I just love her analogies and visualizations.

I call Gale our very own horse whisper. She seems to just know what is going on with all of the horses in her barn, not just her own. She not only knows what is going on with them emotionally and will assist the rider by getting on the horse herself sort as a "tune Up", but she also knows them physically. No horse gets better care when they are hurting or injured than those at her barn. Her own personal knowledge, some of which was aquired by taking vet courses while going to Cornell for engineering, is incredible. She also has a great working relationship with the best horse vets (including those at Cornell), farriers and equine dentists in the area. If she doesn't what to do, she knows who to go to.

Gale's facility is fabulous for horse and rider alike. Everything in the barn is kept in impecable order. There is a place for everything and everything is in its place. Safety is always first here. Her facility has great outdoor pastures and arenas. Her large indoor arena includes rubber footing, mirrors, a heated tack room and bathroom and so much more!
So, 18 years later I eagerly look forward to my weekly lessons. I just love the facility, my instructor and dear friend, my co owned horse, my fellow riding students, the barn crew and all the great families. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

With a number of horses, both lesson and boarded, there is a lot of work at this barn. Gale manages it all, making it look simple, including considering what horses will cooperate with what other horses and what level the riders are for the lessons. If you need simple lessons, she has them. If you need advanced lessons, she can provide them. The horses are happy and healthy and well cared for. It has been a wonderful experience for me, providing so much more then just riding lessons.

I have been riding at Gale's for the past 6 years. The facility is wonderful and clean with many amenities, but that is not why I go there. I go there for the atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and there is always someone to ride with. I lease a horse from Gale and I ride about 4 times a week. Gale is almost always available to answer any question I might have. She has many years of experience and it shows. Her lessons are fun and informative. I highly recommend this facility.

I'm an adult riding student and I've been taking lessons at Gale??s for just over a year and love it! Gale is an extremely knowledgeable horsewoman who works with you to reach your individual riding goals. The barn atmosphere is wonderful, everyone is friendly and encouraging. The horses in Gale's program are well cared for happy horses that are safe and fun to ride. It's hard to find a facility as wonderful as Gale's.

This is our first venture into the world of horses and couldn??t be happier with the choice. I was looking for some place to take my daughter on a trail ride for her birthday and found Gale's. Gale was patient in her reply and described the pros and cons of trail rides for the inexperienced but still offered other places I could check out if I really wanted just a ride. Once we got to Gale's and saw the horses in action though we were hooked. She has been both patient and supportive as we have learned the ropes - who knew there was so much to learn about taking care of a horse! If you want nothing more than a lesson - she can accommodate, if you want to work off some of the cost, she can accommodate, if you need a place for your horse to stay, she can accommodate, including full care of your horse or letting you help. As you can see Gale is very accommodating! With so much to do I would be lost if it wasn??t for her organizing the work and even writing down instructions in case you forget. My daughter is always looking forward to the next lesson and has become more confident and responsible because of her time at Gale's. Thank you Gale for opening a whole new world to us.

I've been associated with Gale's for at least the last 10 years. As an adult getting back into horses after nearly a lifetime away from them, Gale was an oustanding instructor, coach, mentor and friend. I went from lessons on her horses -- to leasing then buying a horse from her -- and then on to buying 3 horses all with her help and advice. I love boarding my horses at Gale's ... roomy box stalls, excellent care, quality turnout as long as the weather permits, and an large indoor that actually stays quite "warm" even in our frigid weather. Plus Gale lives on site so I can travel knowing that the horses will be cared for even if I'm away. And there's a good sense of community at the barn. Now Gale will let you know if there is a safety issue for sure and/or if she has a concern about the horses' care or wellbeing ... but that's what keeps the quality high!

I recently started taking lessons at Gale's after being at another barn for 7 years. Gale is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to stop what she is doing to answer any question I may have. The barn is clean and well organized and the stalls are quite roomy. The indoor riding arena is huge and the footing is WONDERFUL!! The horses are very well cared for. They are fed good quality hay and turned out to pasture every day that the weather permits. For a boarding facility or a lesson barn you just can't beat Gales!

My children are 8 & 6. They have taken lessons at Gale's since last summer. Our experience here has been excellent. Gale is an experienced, safe, and trustworthy teacher. The barn and the animals are well cared for and clean. My children have grown from their experiences at Gale's. They not only ride horses at Gale's but they have learned about safety, repect, and responsiblity that comes with working with the horses. We are also involved with the 4-H program at Gale's. Gale gives her time and energy to head this 4-H group, which enables the kids to learn even more about the horses. I would highly recommend Gale's Equine to anyone looking for a safe reputable facility, whether taking lessons, participating in 4-H or boarding a horse.

Gales Equine Facility is a Classy facility. Owner Gale lives on premisis. Any issue a horse or owner may have is welcomed and encouraged to be received by the owner for her assistance in any way. Last night my door to my car wouldn't shut due to the latch freezing open. Gale had a solution. The barn was shut down for the night and I was the last one out. Gale has an extrem knowledge of horse care and passes it on to her students and there family. She is one of the 50 best in the Nation in Trainers. If Laura B has an issue perhaps she should put out her real name for one and get over her self.

Gales also is in my opinion one of the best maintatined facilities in the area. Rubber footing in the Arena, Insulated throughout, Warm tack room and bath room. Saddles are kept in the warm areas so they don't loose there quality. Feel free to call Gale and ask about her reasonable prices

The people that have horses at Gales are very satisfied. The barn is run with good management and the people that attend that barn love it. It is well maintained and the atmosphere is enjoyable. The horses are happy as well. If this barn was not enjoyable, people would not keep returning. The lesson schedule is ALWAYS full as well as the 4H group. I enjoy boarding my horse there because I KNOW that Gale's knowledge of horses is extremely helpful. I feel safer at night knowing that if anything was to happen, she would not hesitate to call and do whatever needed to be done to help. I have been going there for years and still to this day enjoy it.

My daughter is 13 years old. She has been taking lessons with Gale and her horses every since she was 6 years old. I have been to pretty much all of our local barns and I feel Gale's is superior. The facility, horses, equipment and expertise of the instructor are second to none. Gale also runs a 4-H program for the children and is very involved in helping them during show season. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone.
