After observing the excellent job that Lorraine does when giving lessons, I have referred many children to her. They not only learn the skill of horseback riding but also learn valuable horsemanship skills because Lorraine includes the catching, grooming and saddling of the horses into her lessons. I highly recommend Lorraine if you are looking for riding lessons for your child or even yourself!
I started taking lessons with Susan about three and a half years ago as a complete beginner. I do not own my own horse, but use Susan's lesson horses. At the time, my goal was to be able to ride well enough to participate in equestrian vacations. What I love about Susan is that she takes a rider through all phases of horsemanship, not just riding, but everything from the ground up, with an emphasis on safety and leadership. Now I've been on several riding vacations--a life long dream come true for me! Over the last year or so I have been learning the various phases of eventing, from dressage to stadium jumping to cross country. Susan is knowledgeable in all these areas. One of the things I like best about Goldspirit Farm is the relaxed and homey atmosphere. I have made many friends there, human, equine, and canine!
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!
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.
Dave goes above and beyond the duties of a trainer in caring for horses and clients . He is conscientious and respectful of the horses and clients needs. The kids who come for the program just love him as do the horses he trains.
I have known Joy since I moved to California in 2006. She turned me from a horse loving girl to a capable rider that now works with green horses and teaches riding lessons. She has trained every horse that I have owned starting with a hot 5 year old Quarter horse mare that had never been handled. She turned her into a fun, responsive, people loving mare that has taught many beginners how to ride. She then turned my cute 3 year old rowdy Quarter colt into a mannered and quiet gentleman that kids learned to ride on. Next came a Thoroughbred gelding off the track. After a lay up he became dangerous and bucked me off on a regular basis. I was told by numerous people to put him down. When I called her for help, the first thing she said was " problem horses, my favorite". Within no time he became quiet and safe. Last came a green broke 5 year old Friesian cross that had an abusive past as we soon discovered. She spent many days trying to figure him out coming up with new tricks to get him to respond to her willingly. Needless to say he was very stubborn and difficult to handle, and once again I was told to put him down and that he had a neurological problem. She never gave up and now he is a quiet, trusting mount with a wonderful loving disposition. I've even thrown my beginner friends on him and he has been exceptional with them. As much as I love to learn from every horse person that I meet, she is always the one that I look to for advice regarding my horses health, nutrition, training and needs. The most valuable thing that she has taught me is to have a positive attitude towards every horse and that a horse is capable of anything even if their conformation is considered poor or if they have a bad attitude. She tailors her training to each individual horse to help them achieve their best and most importantly enjoy doing their job. She makes sure to keep you involved so that you and your horse become a fine-tuned team that is continually growing and improving. I knew I would love Joy from the moment I met her and now I can safely say that she will never be rid of me. I look forward to everything else that I will learn from her for years to come. I am thankful to this day that she has been the one to mold my horse experiences and knowledge.
Great hunter / jumper barn in a really a beautiful setting. They do it all here, lessons, sales, leases and competition prep. So glad I found this place after looking for a place to ride and train after 10 years away from riding!
