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.

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 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!

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!

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.

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!!

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.

About

We teach riding lessons to beginner through advanced riders. Our emphasis is on developing safety and horsemanship skills in all levels of riding. Our emphasis is on the Western discipline but English tack is available for those riders that are interested in English. The lesson horses are gentle and well-cared for. Individuals are welcome to trailer in their own horses for lessons as well. Horse training is available, from colt-starting to problem-solving to finished arena/trail horses. For those looking to board their horse, we occasionally have an opening. The ranch is situated near the end of a dead end street that opens to miles of trail riding. Amenities include an arena, round pen, bull pen, corrals with covers and mats and more.

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.
