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!

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.

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 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.

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 loved horses my entire life but was never in a position to own my own horse. I then spent 16 years helping rescue Thoroughbred horses, and finally at 50 years of age, I decided it was time for me to realize my dream. I wanted to adopt a rescued Thoroughbred but I had no idea how to handle or properly ride such a spirited animal. Had it not been for Dave Drulias and his patient and effective training methods, I would not have been able to realize my dream.
