What Dana's Clients Have to Say About Her
Testimonials from Riders & Horse Owners Just Like You ...

I cannot say enough good things about Dana, and how much she has helped my family and our horses. I met Dana last summer, after I had purchased an OTTB named Cooper. With her help, Cooper and I are becoming a matched pair. We hope to take Cooper to some small schooling shows in Intro Level Dressage. She also helped us buy a Steady-Eddie trail horse for my husband. Rocky is a terrific all-around little Arabian who has stolen everyone's heart. She even has our 3-1/2 year old granddaughter, Lexi, riding my older, retired hunter/jumper King. The icing on the cake, though, is the way she is bringing back our retired warmblood, Elijah. Eli was sidelined from a successful dressage career by a hock injury several years ago. Previously trained and successfully shown to Third Level, our Gentle Giant was enjoying life as pasture buddy. With Dana's careful work, though, Elijah is coming back into condition. His leg is healed, he is losing some of those pasture pounds, and starting to muscle up. Best of all -- he loves having a job again.
Dana has a gentle-but-firm way with horses. I have marveled to watch her work with all four my horses, I have seen them melt like butter in her hands, and work their hearts out to please her. My own riding has improved and I am gaining confidence as we work together with our own horses on our own farm. Her presence in our lives has been a true blessing.

She is all good ... always does a good job & leaves your entire barn in a good mood ~ Dana Alley is a talented young trainer ...who is capable, dependable, and reasonable . She is agile, mobile and versatile ~~~ her training process is ethical, methodical, and practical. Dana listens, processes and translates both the horse and owner's needs . She develops and implements a sound program... adjusting her strategy along the way as necessary. Dana re-directs consistently and accurately making misbehavior a non- event. Dana was employed to exercise my young mare during my rotator cuff rehab.. Dhe conditioned my mare and installed an improved steering system and a new transmission. I "stepped up" to discover my mare had been finished exactly as i requested = a 'lexus" in spotted horse clothes .... She is " light " in the bridle and "jiggy" she is disciplined but still "lit" still snorting and bright-eyed ... Ready for the fall riding season `` i highly recommend Dana Alley for whatever horse training job you need completed. Dana's work ensures that you will love your horse even more after she works her "magic"! the horse world needs more Dana Alleys! it is simply a pleasure to do business with Dana. Dana, thank you and please know if we can help you in anyway!
