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.

Holly Bergay and the San Diego Saddle Club impressed me during my daughters horseback riding sessions. Holly and her staff are patient teachers that have worked with horses a long time. They are good roll models for my daughter and have lots of knowledge to share. Thank you SDSC!

Miss Mary of Manns Mangic Ranch is wonderful!! My daughter, Sidney, has been riding at the Ranch for years and has gone from a shy little gal to a confident young lady! Mary's teaching style is top notch, this is a woman who knows and loves horses. She's gentle yet persistent and really makes the lessons fun. The horses are saddled up and ready to go when we arrive, which assures that Sidney always has plenty of riding time. I highly recommend this ranch, you won't be disappointed!

If you are looking at riding or having your child ride, I suggest you give them a try. The trainers at Blue Fox Farms are amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable, positive and most of all fun. The barn is clean, well kept and their horse's have the best of care. We have ridden at several barns over the years and this one is at the top of our list. We travel four hours to take lessons and show with this barn. My daughter love's it there and enjoys the time she spends with her trainer and her friends.

      In the past three months I have been with Ms.Cheryl I have learned more than I have in six years! Not only is she an amazing and kind trainer yet tough when she needs to be, she really teaches you of all aspects of Horseback Riding! The facilities are superb with a full dressage and hunter/jumper rings and all of her lessons horses are well behaved and ridable! The girls who ride with her are all very nice and welcoming which made coming to Pepper Creek even better! This is the best place in San Diego and most definitely Ramona to get lessons and really learn about everything that goes with horseback riding! You will not be disappointed!

        I have taken riding lessons throughout my life. Amy's program is by far the best. I look forward to every lesson. Her gentle teaching style not only builds your riding skill, but also your confidence. Her method of teaching you "how to speak horse" is really helpful in developing exceptional communication skills between you and the horse. I highly recommend selecting Salisbury Farms for your horseback riding instruction.

        Head trainer Jessica Odom and assistant trainer Lacy Norris are two of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure to meet. Their devotion to their "job" (for them is not a job...it is their passion) and the kids is unparalleled, their main concern is pairing the student with the right horse, so the child feels safe and secure and enjoys the ride. I should know. My daughter has been riding at South Coast Equestrian for 10 years and has never been happier. After having a previous bad experience at another barn she was very hesitant to get back on a horse again even though it was what she loved the most; but with Jessica's and Lacy's love and patience my girl got back on the saddle and blossomed into an amazing and very confident rider, who not only enjoys riding but everything that has to do with the stable, from grooming and feeding the horses to aiding an ailing horse to mocking the stalls and everything in between, she can see herself running a farm in her future and is all thanks to her experience at South Coast Equestrian...they are the best in town!!!
