I stumbled across the Valley Riding Inc. Web site, and I am so happy to see how vibrant and lovely the old stables are! I spent many a Saturday taking lessons there in the 1980s. I have so many great memories. Hopefully, in a few years my own children will be able to attend a horse camp during the summer.
In the meantime, I will definitely check in and stay posted about your events and fundraising activities.

Dear Anna, what a surprise to see your comments.
Your father was a kind and gentle man. I took many private riding lessons from him, for a couple of years. He taught me so much. I met your mom also one time.
I was a graduate of the College of Wooster and talked of it often. He wanted you to go there, and I think you did.
I currently live in Medina, Ohio. Your dad came here to inspect this old, near condemned Victorian house my husband and I considered buying in 1985. He told us it was very structurally sound, and if we didn’t buy it, he would, lol. We have been working on the restoration ever since.
What a nice guy. °•○♡
I ended up owning five horses and two ponies. I kept them all until their passing, at very old ages.
P.S. When I was a little girl, I lived just off Puritan Avenue in Cleveland. I was always in trouble for going down to those stables.
I was trying to view the photos but when you click on most of the photos, another image pops up. Any way of correcting this? I am interested in both boarding and facilities. Thank You.
So sorry about the problems you are experiencing with our facility photos! We will let our web designer know about this glitch. In the meantime, we would be happy to email you photos of the facility and/or arrange a tour at your convenience. Thank you for your interest in Valley Riding and please feel free to contact us with any questions. Christa
