I don't think I could possibly gush enough about working with Lorainne! A little about me: I'm an adult student. I can be shy and I embarrass pretty easily, which I think can make me a difficult student. I was hesitant about taking horseback riding lessons, mostly because when I tried it as a kid, it was a little traumatizing. I remember the lessons were in a huge group, so I often didn't catch what was going on, and I remember being yelled at a lot (I'm sure it was for my own safety, but I would be so panicked by being yelled at that it was hard for me to learn). Due to the expense of taking lessons, and probably my lack of enthusiasm for them, I stopped going. Fast forward a few (okay, a lot) of years and working one-on-one with Lorainne. In a million years, I didn't think I could feel as comfortable as I do so quickly. She is extremely knowledgeable about horses and riding. She is also incredibly patient and takes great care in explaining everything from the horse's anatomy and how to saddle properly knowing such, to knowing a horse's temperament and how to approach them. She works with me at my pace to make sure I'm both comfortable and safe. I absolutely love riding, and while we're still working it, I do feel a lot more confident than I thought I would! Lorainne is very caring and a true joy to work with. My lessons are by far one of the best parts of my week and they are worth every penny!
Within two weeks of our Thumbtack exchange I was up and riding on a horse. The lessons are affordable and scheduling is flexible. I am already beyond satified with my experience.
Janene is an amazing riding instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable and incredibly sweet! She is very professional and will challenge you, as well as identify your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. If you are truly looking to excel in this sport Janene is who you want.
We love Dream Catcher L.A.!!! My son, who has cerebral palsy, has been receiving therapeutic horseback riding for a year with this organization. It has been, from the beginning, a very positive experience. The entire staff, instructors and volunteers, are incredibly passionate about the work they do. There is an intuitive understanding of how the relationship with these beautiful horses can help these kids, not just physically but also emotionally. Each program is customized for each rider and Joan, founder and instructor, is remarkable in her ability to connect with each rider. Her energy level is always high and she truly loves each child that comes into the program.
I have ridden with Diane for 13+ years now and cannot say enough good things about her. Simply the best there is. If you are a beginner and want to learn to ride in a professional, fun and safe environment, give Diane a call. 3D Farms also offers high-level training for experienced riders in both dressage and jumping. If you are a horse-owner looking for a trainer, your horse will have top quality training and care at 3D Farms. If my horse could leave a review, he would give Diane 5 stars too!
Nancy Degan is an outstanding horse trainer. She has extreme patience and kindness with her animal children. Her horse tricks are cute and clever. Her whole life centers around the love of horses. I recommend her highly for children's birthday parties.
I always learn so much from Holly. Her riding experience and her love for horses makes her such a great teacher.
Kim's experience and knowledge of horses, is a valuable asset to any horse owner. Kim has spent years gaining and then successfully teaching other horse owners what she knows from ground work to competition. She has helped my husband and I improve our understanding and skill set to start young horses and help older horses that have come to our barn with poor ground manners. Her patience and ability to explain detail is priceless. Our family highly recommends Kim for your novice to advanced horsemanship needs.
I have been a member of Cowboy Boot Camp for over five years and learn something every time I ride a horse, which is weekly. I have become adept at tack, grooming and riding, all because of Jim Moore. The experience of riding a horse on the gorgeous trails in Palos Verdes is exhilarating and soothing for the soul -- I highly recommend it.
Rhi is a fantastic trainer. She focuses on both horsemanship and riding. Our daughter has significantly improved her technique and confidence! Additionally, Rhi’s calm demeanor and professional attitude always help keep our daughter focused and comfortable while riding.
Belinda is an amazing riding instructor! Her horses are beautiful and trustworthy and her natural horsemanship techniques are practical, unique, and very ethical. So thankful to have her as my trainer.
Since I started training under Erika Campbell, I have since took First place in my Rookie Reining Show class at only my second Reining show! I was brand new to the sport of Reining and needed a lot of work on my riding skills. She has helped my overall riding skills immensely and given me the confidence I lacked. Erika makes training fun and she puts her heart and soul into training horses and riders. Whether you just want to be a better horsemen or go compete, Erika will help you accomplish your goals! She is very professional and one of the the hardest working trainers that I know. She cares about her clients and treats them like family. I would highly recommend her for any horse training services you need!
Sam is a highly capable and knowledgeable instructor who recognizes the unique needs of individual students, is prepared for every lesson, and wants her students to enjoy their learning processes. She combines kindness with just the right amount of tough love to support students as they strengthen their riding skills. I recommend Sam to both new and experienced riders.
