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 is an expert in all things horses/horseback riding, and is great at imparting it, even to a beginner like myself. I was impressed with how much information I took away from just an initial lesson/evaluation.

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!

    Finding a barn that has the "right" combination of trainers, instructors, horses, and facilities is a difficult and sometimes daunting task. While I've only been at Majestic Farms for a few months, I knew immediately that I had found the right barn for me. Any instructor will be friendly during your first lesson and enthusiastic when the lesson goes well. However, many instructors loose their cool when things start to go wrong. While it is rare to have a bad ride at Majestic Farms, it is particularly during these less-than-perfect lessons that Austin and Eric shine as instructors. Even when I make mistakes or get frustrated, Austin and Eric remain calm, focused and upbeat. They redirect my energy and end every lesson on a positive note. I've never seen either one of them loose their cool with me or with any other student. The results of this positive teaching and training philosophy are evident throughout the barn. There is a real sense of camaraderie both among the riders and their families. Other riders are almost as quick to acknowledge a student's progress as Austin and Eric are, advanced students are always around to assist beginners, and parents are quick to offer to carpool or help each other out in other ways. The lesson program at Majestic Farms is unique because it can accommodate any level of rider. The lesson horses are all exceptionally well-trained, well cared for and safe. As you progress and your ability improves, the horse you originally felt comfortable on might not be the right horse to challenge your new-found skills. As instructors, Austin and Eric will discuss with each student when they are ready to advance to the next level and because they carefully select and train horses in the lesson program they are able to match the student with the correct horse. Like other reviewers, I cannot say enough positive things about Majestic Farms. Austin and Eric are both excellent riding instructors and accomplished trainers and Jonny takes excellent care of the horses and the facility. And, on top of all that, they are reasonably priced. I don't know what more anyone could want in a barn. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else and bet that you won't either after giving the staff at Majestic Farms a chance!

    My daughter takes horse riding lessons with Meg. Meg is an excellent trainer and takes a good care of her animals. Her ranch is located a Elfin Forest, so my daughter enjoyes trail rides there as part of her lessons.

      Pepper Creek Equine Center is Ramona’s best boarding and training facility. Thanks to Ms. Cheryl’s years of experience, she has a gift for finding the right combination of horse and rider. Lessons are conducted privately and in small groups while tailoring instruction to the rider’s individual learning style and needs. The facility is meticulously maintained and they are the only farm in Ramona which cleans its stalls 7 days a week and feed three times a day

        Salisbury Farms turned out to be the perfect place for me to learn to ride horses! I had ridden a couple times in my life, but had never learned how to ride properly. Amy Oleson has taught me both riding skills and also about horses in general so that I would understand how their minds work. This was important to me because I had a slight fear of horses, due to their size and not understanding how they communicate and what makes them tick. Her process makes a new rider feel comfortable and safe, and because she is so talented as both a rider and instructor, the sky is the limit on my learning potential with Amy. I have been taking lessons now for over a year and a half, and plan to continue indefinitely!
