My 11 year old daughter has been attending the Happy Hooves Vaulting Club and the Little Riders Club for over a year now and it’s been amazing for her confidence and self-esteem. She enjoys both the activity and the community that Happy Hooves offers and would spend every minute of her time there if she could! I can’t recommend it highly enough!
