I have been riding with Tara for almost a year now and I am thankful for the opportunity to have become a part of her barn family at Full Circle Farms. Tara did a tremendous job with helping me bring my beloved 20 year old Warmblood back from an injury sustained outside of her care. Tara's extreme attention to detail and her wealth of equine knowledge was pivotal in my horse's recovery. Tara treats every horse in the barn like her own and carefully monitors their care, while providing a tailored riding program for each horse/rider combination. As a full-time+ CPA, I work long hours during the weekdays, which makes getting out to the barn to ride during the week nearly impossible. However, Tara has been extremely flexible in working with my schedule so that I can get as much riding time in as possible. Further, I know my horse is being regularly exercised and well cared for in my absence, which definitely helps me sleep at night. I am so lucky to have found a trainer who is willing to work around my schedule and who has taken a keen interested in getting me back into the sport after an almost 10 year hiatus. Tara is an extremely hard worker and determined professional who thrives on the accomplishments of her students. Her passion for the sport and love of horses seems to be the driving force behind Tara's motivation to go above an beyond. I can not say enough to emphasize how grateful I am to train with her.
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 always learn so much from Holly. Her riding experience and her love for horses makes her such a great teacher.
My Daughter has been riding for Vogel Equine for many years now and we love it.
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.
I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Majestic Farms! Due to a year long deployment to Afghanistan with the US Army, I had to make the choice between either selling my 3 year old mare, "Gidget", or finding a place to turn her out for a year. Luckily, I didn't have to do either as Austin and Eric came to the rescue! They have not only done a beautiful finishing my mare, but they keep me in the loop about her training and are always sending me wonderful pictures and emails which is a huge morale boost over here! I've never had to worry about the decisions being made concerning the well being of my horse as I know they take care of "Gidget" like one of their own. I had the pleasure of being able to attend one horse show with Majestic Farms before I left for my deployment and was more than impressed with their professional attitude while at the same time making all of their customers feel like family. I have been showing horses for 15 years and have never had more fun at a horse show than I experienced with Majestic Farms, and that is including all the shows I have won blue ribbons at! Majestic Farms is an outstanding facility with a wonderful staff who treat all their customers (and horses!) with the same respect and show equal enthusiasm toward their customers goals whether they are there for their first riding lesson, interested only in riding for pleasure, or own a world class show horse! Please check out Majestic Farms, you will not be dissapointed!
The instructors at Leahy Riding Academy have been patient, focused, and kind in my learning. As a adult learner, they adjust to my pace and provide guidance and support with my weaknesses. I highly recommend them!
We scheduled riding lessons for our 7 yr old granddaughter with Molly as a Christmas gift. Molly was great getting this set up as we are 3000miles away. Our girl’s first lesson was yesterday and she had such a great time. Thank you Molly !!!!
Head trainer Jessica Odom and assistant trainer Lacy Norris are two of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure to meet. Their devotion to their "job" (for them is not a job...it is their passion) and the kids is unparalleled, their main concern is pairing the student with the right horse, so the child feels safe and secure and enjoys the ride. I should know. My daughter has been riding at South Coast Equestrian for 10 years and has never been happier. After having a previous bad experience at another barn she was very hesitant to get back on a horse again even though it was what she loved the most; but with Jessica's and Lacy's love and patience my girl got back on the saddle and blossomed into an amazing and very confident rider, who not only enjoys riding but everything that has to do with the stable, from grooming and feeding the horses to aiding an ailing horse to mocking the stalls and everything in between, she can see herself running a farm in her future and is all thanks to her experience at South Coast Equestrian...they are the best in town!!!
I love the barn and all the people there! Great horses and amazing trainer.
Kathy put a lot of emphases on safety during my daughters' first equestrian lesson, which was a great experience. We're really looking forward to learning more from Kathy in the coming weeks.

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.
