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.

After observing the excellent job that Lorraine does when giving lessons, I have referred many children to her. They not only learn the skill of horseback riding but also learn valuable horsemanship skills because Lorraine includes the catching, grooming and saddling of the horses into her lessons. I highly recommend Lorraine if you are looking for riding lessons for your child or even yourself!
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.
Janene is an amazing riding instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable and incredibly sweet! She is very professional and will challenge you, as well as identify your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. If you are truly looking to excel in this sport Janene is who you want.
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!
Belinda is an amazing riding instructor! Her horses are beautiful and trustworthy and her natural horsemanship techniques are practical, unique, and very ethical. So thankful to have her as my trainer.
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!
Rhi is a fantastic trainer. She focuses on both horsemanship and riding. Our daughter has significantly improved her technique and confidence! Additionally, Rhi’s calm demeanor and professional attitude always help keep our daughter focused and comfortable while riding.
I always learn so much from Holly. Her riding experience and her love for horses makes her such a great teacher.
We scheduled riding lessons for our 7 yr old granddaughter with Molly as a Christmas gift. Molly was great getting this set up as we are 3000miles away. Our girl’s first lesson was yesterday and she had such a great time. Thank you Molly !!!!
Kim's experience and knowledge of horses, is a valuable asset to any horse owner. Kim has spent years gaining and then successfully teaching other horse owners what she knows from ground work to competition. She has helped my husband and I improve our understanding and skill set to start young horses and help older horses that have come to our barn with poor ground manners. Her patience and ability to explain detail is priceless. Our family highly recommends Kim for your novice to advanced horsemanship needs.

Nancy Degan is an outstanding horse trainer. She has extreme patience and kindness with her animal children. Her horse tricks are cute and clever. Her whole life centers around the love of horses. I recommend her highly for children's birthday parties.
I have been a member of Cowboy Boot Camp for over five years and learn something every time I ride a horse, which is weekly. I have become adept at tack, grooming and riding, all because of Jim Moore. The experience of riding a horse on the gorgeous trails in Palos Verdes is exhilarating and soothing for the soul -- I highly recommend it.
