Hillcrest Stables is by far the best stable on LI. Darlene has the most patience out of all of the trainers I have seen at the shows!!! As a student of 7 years, I have learned so much from her like how to put polo wraps on to jumping a 3'6" course!!!! The stable is kept super clean and everyone is very friendly =] Come by and meet everyone, you wont regret it...I promise!!!
