Riding with Dana Smith has been a wonderful and amazing experience. Coming from me that's completely honest because I've been riding with her for 13 years+

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!

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.

I have been in training with VE since end of 2012. After not riding for 14 years she brought me from never jumping to showing in the jumper classics. My horses are always sound and happy. VE found me remarkable horses which have helped me achieve my goals and dreams. Team VE for ME!

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!

    Sam is a highly capable and knowledgeable instructor who recognizes the unique needs of individual students, is prepared for every lesson, and wants her students to enjoy their learning processes. She combines kindness with just the right amount of tough love to support students as they strengthen their riding skills. I recommend Sam to both new and experienced riders.

    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!!
