Whether you have a youngster that needs to be started under saddle or want your horse to gain the necessary skills to move up the levels, Glenda can help!

"I rode at Playland when I was in high school, but after my college lease horse passed away, Glenda was the first person I called. The environment here is so welcoming, and she has the expertise to offer every student in her program a challenging and thoughtful lesson."

- Sam

"I’ve boarded my horses at Playland since 2018, but when I was pregnant with my first child, I decided to put my mare in training. Glenda was a lifesaver with keeping Sissy in shape and progressing in her training, ready for me as soon as I was up to riding again. I saw so much benefit, I still have her in part-time training to this day!"

- Angela
