“Our daughter had THE BEST time today. I’ve never seen her so genuinely happy – down to her core. Such a blessing to have this special week of camp. Thank you!!!!”   –  From the parent of one of our Toddler students…

“The Trish Franks School of Riding is exceptional in their Western Reining Discipline. Brittany Franks is an exceptional instructor and practicing attorney. Her attention to horse and rider detail puts her in the winning circle in the Reining Horse Industry and Ranch Horse arena. The Franks family has host to more than 10 of the best practice Western horses in Middle Tennessee. I would highly recommend this program to any child or adult. Amazing results!” (May 2016: Adult Western Rider)

” I just wanted to say how fantastic my son’s first (toddler) riding lesson with donna was this afternoon. Although he was exhausted from his birthday party earlier in the morning, he had a blast and is very enthusiastic about learning more.”

“An excellent group of students and teachers ..also very warm and friendly. Knowledgeable to boot”

“Trish Franks is one of the country’s most talented equestrian business women, and more than that, she is dependable, hard working, creative, talented, and sincerely committed to the highest standards of performance in all areas of her life. She will not only go the extra mile for those involved with her work and life, but also will do it with integrity and brilliance. She is excellence personified.”

“I am very willing to promote Trish and the Natchez Bend Equestrian Team on our websites www.Equine-Magnotherapy.com and www.krg.greenwayformula7.com. We know that Equine Thermography and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy together works extremely well for whatever ails the horse, rider, trainer or owner. We are excited to get more opportunities to work together in the future.”

“My daughter enjoys lessons at Natchez Bend. The staff is excellent and she is very careful to take excellent care of the horses and riders in her program. The riders are pushed to their potential but safety precautions are taken with each rider. The facilities are excellent and there are opportunities on team for riders in all economic situations.”

“The Natchez Bend Performance Horse IEA group is a first class group of children and adults! At Natchez Bend you will not only learn about showing horses but you will also learn life lessons about team work, dedication, responsibility and hard work. The staff is very knowledgeable with 100+ years combined experience in the horse industry and a great work ethic that gleans through to the children. The kids come ready to learn with a positive attitude and a bright outlook toward their future. I highly recommend this program for all middle school and high school students that are interested in equestrian activities”

“This is the most well known and liked Riding School Program In Middle Tennessee,I also have requested that to others take your child to this program for the betterment of their riding skills..”
