    Reviewed by Alex H. on 4/5/2024
    The coursehorse staff was friendly and responsive and altered my schedule quickly when something unexpected came up. Linda, the instructor, is clearly passionate about the art and is totally engaging. When I could not find a couple of items locally, Linda's staff sent them right out to me. This was a great experience and provided what I was looking for.
