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.

I came in with very little horseback riding experience and she has taught me so much in the few short months that I have been taking lessons. It is great because she not only teaches you to ride, but also how to care for the horse before and after the lesson. Molly always makes sure that everything is safe and most importantly fun. The facility is very clean and well kept and everyone is very friendly. I would recommend her to all levels of riders.

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.

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.

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.

Sierra is an amazing teacher!! When i first started riding i had no idea what i was doing i thought it was just get on and go. Sierra is a very patient and knowledgeable trainer, she taught me everything from tacking up and grooming to understanding certain behaviors and really teaching me how to be a confident rider. Shes really knowledgeable on horse behavior and what it means to create a bond with your horse. i would recommend sierra to any level rider whether your having problems with behavioural issues or your just starting out give her a call!!

About

I have a lot of experience with kids, teens, horses, and teaching riders of all ages and skill levels. I am most adept with Western style riding but I also love to teach beginning English style classes! I'll also teach anything you want to know about general horse care and ground handling. If you've got the horse, I'm willing to teach!

About

I am teaching beginners to ride and take care of their horses. Clients will learn the basics, ground manners, joining up, tacking up, bathing, riding, and proper sitting.

About

A 10 Acre ranch with 200 acres of open land and trails in Temecula Wine Country hosts Equusfit. A fitness and wellness retreat for horses and humans. I present a very open path to enjoyment of yourself and your horse. I offer a Mind, Body and Spirit platform for self discovery and exploration of movement and communication that when in tune feels like magic! Moving at your comfort level within those parameters. It's more than just a horse lesson. It's an experience and hopefully a way of life . You must be willing to work with the horse on the ground to establish trust and close communication that will further your experience and make the transition to riding smooth, safe and truly enjoyable. If a quick ride to try out horses is what you want this may not be for you. With that said the workout is amazing! Very effective on all levels of fitness using natural elements, horses as well as conventional fitness equipment. Both My partner and I are Certified and Insured Personal Trainers as well as CHA Certified Horseman. We are currently only accepting 10 fulltime 2x a week sessions. Most sessions are an hour and 1/2 or longer. We are are available to travel on monthly packages only. *Everyone is always welcome to stay and enjoy the ranch after their session. :) Kids, Dogs and picnics welcome. *Horse Boarding is case by case basis : Currently one opening for Dec 1 Only requirement is positive vibes!
