    "I have been riding with Holly for two years, and I could never hope to find a better instructor. She has the most amazing horses and takes very good care of them. In fact, my medium pony, Gandalf (show name White Wizard) was once one of her ponies. In only two years I have learned to Jump 2' 6" and qualified for 2012 Pony Finals! Holly, you are the best!!!"

    "We’ve worked with Holly for quite some time and know we have finally found a trainer that cares about her students and horses. Her calm and supportive teaching reflects her compassion for both for the horse & rider. These qualities are evident especially during the stressfulness of competition at horse shows. She offers concise and accurate instructions to the riders as they enter the arena as well as words of encouragement. Holly has provided excellent Hunter/Jumper training and it is a pleasure to be a member of her team.

    She provides a safe and very well-run barn with no corners cut when it comes to the care of the horses. Our horse is very well-fed, calm and happy and never looked better! It is evident that she does whatever she can to provide the best care for our horse. I highly recommend Holly Frenzel and Whistling Rails.

    "I have been riding with Holly for 4 years. She has done so much for me to become a better rider and I know she can do the same for you. Holly is patient, never yells, and is always respectful of her students. The barn is a cheerful place and is very kid friendly. Holly stresses safety on and off the horse and can adjust her teaching to all levels of hunter/jumper riding. I highly recommend Holly Frenzel as an instructor of english riding."

    "I have been riding since 2005 with many different trainers, until 2007 when I met Holly. I never got the full understanding of what I was doing while riding, except that I was on a horse going around a course, somehow. When I started riding with Holly we went back to basics; she made sure I understood everything to make me a better rider. I also learned a lot of horsemanship skills from her that as a rider I needed to know. Holly does not have a "cookie cutter" way of teaching, she teaches the rider to ride how their body allows them too. From mt personal experience, I only competed in 3 shows last year and won the year end 2'6 equitation division for NTHJC. I would never have been able to do that without Holly and her way of teaching me, having me understand how to make a course flow even when something does not go as planned. Holly makes sure her horses, and the boarders' horses, get fed the best hay and grain she can find. She has some horses that most people would have thrown in a pasture the rest of their life because they went lame, but Holly gives the horse time to heal and rehabilitate; she makes sure they are 100% before they start being ridden again. I've been to many shows and I might be biased, but Holly seems the most caring for the horse and rider. Her riders stand out in a crowd because we have been taught how to ride the best way for the horse to be comfortable and look great. I do not own my own horse and ride the amazing school horses Holly provides for the clients who do not own their own horse. I am currently a student at TCU and still driving back every week to ride with her. The atmosphere at the barn is a great family environment, and everyone is welcoming and willing to help the new (and old) riders with anything. She has riders from every age group, and horses to accommodate every level of riding. Holly has help me out so much (personal, family stuff) and I am very grateful for the opportunity to train with her. I love Whistling Rails, I love Holly, I love the riders, and I love the horses."

    "After several attempts to find a qualified riding instructor for my daughter, we finally found Holly. She has become affectionately known as "the Horse Mom" due to her love and time involved with our daughter, who has spent the past 4 years gleaning an amazing amount of knowledge from Holly, not just in riding, but in all aspects of horses and training. Holly provides a safe and well run barn and doesn't allow the riders to cut corners. We saw an amazing amount of improvement in our daughters abilities and confidence when competing, and just overall joy whenever should could be at the barn. "
