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!
Jenny is friendly, kind, very knowledgeable. My daughter loves riding at her stables.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 had never ridden or been around horses until much later in life. After joining CBC, I learned basic, valuable horsemanship, which I use and implement to this day. My horse and riding are now a big part of my life. Thank you Jim!
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 !!!!
