Denise Finch has been riding since childhood and is an outstanding equestrian. As a trainer she has educated many successful riders and horses. She also has a talent for finding great future show ring prospects.

— Richard I, Charlottesville, VADenise is great! My daughter has enjoyed riding at Forecast Farms since day one. Denise not only teaches the art of riding, she makes sure that you learn the background of it all in such a positive way. At Forecast Farms Denise makes you feel like family every time!

— Beth Presgraves, The Plains, VADenise is an excellent confidence builder. The message in her lessons are clear and uncomplicated, yet cover all the basics one needs to move up through the ranks. She pays close attention not only to the horse’s way of going but also the rider so the two are on the same page. She’s the perfect instructor for the beginner as well as the adult – her patience astounds!

— Jana, Fairfax, VAForecast Farms is a wonderful place to learn and Denise is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is very knowledgeable, exhibits a good attention to the fine details of riding, always keeps safety in mind, and is able to explain things in a way that my daughter can understand. My daughter absolutely loves taking lessons and really enjoys the time spent with the horses and with Denise.

— Becky, Haymarket, VAForecast Farms Inc. provided me a newfound confidence in riding. Denise taught me how to become a safe and effective rider instead of a passenger. Each lesson provided me with exercises to help strengthen my mind, my body, and most importantly, the balance and understanding between horse and rider. Not only did Denise provide me with excellent training but she also took the time to teach me proper horsemanship and general farm management. Thank you for everything Denise!

— Jessica Mazur, Arlington, VADenise Finch is a fantastic trainer for any amateur who wants to go from beginner to blue ribbons in horse shows! Her teaching methods are always based around safety and comfort of the horse and client yet she makes every experience in the ring so positive and constructive. I rode as a youngster and found my MOJO again with this amazing teacher and found incredible success in the show ring after only 1 year back in training! Thanks to Denise, I have reached more potential than I could have imagined and the possibilities are endless!
