Hear what some of the students are saying about working with Jessie.
My daughter, Madeline; recently began retraining with Jessie a few months ago. Madeline originally began riding with Jessie at another facility a few years ago. When Jessie got married and moved away, Madeline continued at that facility. However, when we discovered that Jessie was back to the Tulsa area at a different facility, we doubled back to her as soon as she would have us even though it is over an hour for us to get there from Bartlesville!! Madeline loves training with Jessie and both of us absolutely LOVE SaddleBack!!! My daughter appreciates the fact that Jessie is able to instruct her in a constructive manner and also make it fun. Scheduling lessons is tricky due to our hectic schedules and distance but Jessie has really worked with both of us to accommodate our needs. I really, really appreciate the discounts for tuition payments paid in full at the beginning of the month. Overall, it has been a happy experience for both Madeline and me at SaddleBack. Hopefully, this association will continue for many years to come.
