"April is a phenomenal horseman. She is an incredibly talented trainer who is trustworthy and kind. If you're looking to learn yourself, she is a loving and thorough teacher. Don't miss out on working with her!!"  
- Brandi Lyons (No Limits Horsemanship)
"We have had April start three of our horses at Reigning Grace Ranch; a BLM Mustang, a Tennessee Walking Horse, and a reining horse. These horses are incredibly quiet and just lovely to work with. I cannot say enough positive things about April and her quiet way she has with horses. She is consistent, light-handed, knowledgeable, and really cares for the well-being of the horse and how the horse is learning. We will continue to have April start and give tune-up's to our horses at RGR." 
- Amanda Moore (Reigning Grace Ranch)
