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!
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.

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 have been riding at Goldspirit Farm for about a year and a half. When I got there I could barely jump two feet without ending up on the horses's neck. Now I can confidently jump 3ft and placed at my first two eventing competitions. Susan is a great instructor and a even better horse person. The barn has a great atmoshere. We have derby days with potlucks. There are so many jumps and different configurations you can never get bored. Highly recommend checking it out!
Great hunter / jumper barn in a really a beautiful setting. They do it all here, lessons, sales, leases and competition prep. So glad I found this place after looking for a place to ride and train after 10 years away from riding!

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.
