    Anita has been my instructor for almost 30 years. I love how we focus on the true partnership that can be created between a horse and rider. As for boarding I would not trust anyone else to care for my horse when I can not be there. Anita and the rest of the staff go above and beyond to make sure every horse on the property is treated like a beloved family companion.

    I am very glad I found Simple Gifts! Anita is wonderful and patient teacher. She sets high standards for each lesson but will always give enough encouragement and instruction that I know I can hope to succeed. My accomplishments on the horse, big or small, are always praised and recognized! She has a profound understanding of how a horse and rider work together, I have learned so much in my two years riding here. I would recommend lessons at Simple Gifts to any rider that wishes to be challenged or is motivated to just be a better well rounded rider and person. Thank you Anita!!

    I have been riding for 27 years and have had many, many instructors over that time. In the year I have been working with Anita, I have learned more about the nuances of communication between horse and rider than from any instructor I've ever had. Anita sees each step your horse takes as an opportunity for improved communication, understanding, and learning. She has the highest expectations of her students and their horses. She can quickly and accurately assess the strengths and weaknesses of horse and rider and set you up to work together in a constructive manner. The word "holistic" comes to mind when thinking about Anita's approach to horsemanship. Every tiny part of horse and rider contributes to the whole. She uses no quick fix or unnatural trick or tool (I have learned so many over the years!). It's just what you and your horse can do with direct and consistent communication. Anita has many "catchphrases", but one of my favorites is, "If you don't ask your horse the question, you're not going to get the answer." I think that sums up her approach perfectly!

    Anita Imms is a kind, caring and knowledgeable riding instructor. She takes the time to explain things in detail so the rider truly gets an understanding of the process. I have learned a great deal in the short time I've taken lessons with her and I plan to continue these lessons as she is by far the best instructor I've had. Simple Gifts Farm is a beautiful place, the staff is friendly, the horses are well cared for and the two barns are clean and tidy. The new boarder barn is beautiful! If I had a horse I would definitely board with Anita.

    I always look forward to my visits to Simple Gifts Farm. Finding Anita and taking riding lessons with her has been a dream come true! The peaceful and welcoming atmosphere of the farm, the happy and well-cared-for herd of horses, and Anita's thoughtful instruction make the time I spend at the barn and in the saddle so rewarding.
