I love going to Kristen's ranch and meet with her for my horseback riding lesson!! There are several amazing trails near the ranch, and riding on the trial just help you clear your mind so much. Kristen is extremely patient and I love her energy when I'm riding with her. I keep doing all the moves wrong lol , but she is always so patient in correcting me. My work schedule couldn't allow me to stick with the ride weekly which is sad, but I highly recommend Kristen if anyone is looking for a horseback riding instructor in the Bay Area.

Nessa is a patient and wonderful coach, and she very knowledgeable about horse riding. As a working professional, flexible sessions made it convenient for me and also a dream come true. I can now enjoy this rewarding activity while traveling abroad and a good coach makes a difference. I'm very proud to have learned proper horse riding from her.

I loved my experiences at Vescera Show Stables! Dina is kind and easy going-she makes riding and the barn fun. I have moved on as a professional jockey at the racetrack and I credit Dina and her experience combined with her teaching ablilty for a lot of my success. She teaches the foundations needed to go on in this business. I would recommend her to riders of any level-everyone can benifit from her. Can't say enough good things about her-shes a trainer, a rider, a teacher, and a worker!!

I highly recommend this trainer and his methods. This past summer it was my job to take an untrained headstrong 3 year old mare (July) and turn her into a sound riding horse. I soon learned that I was in way over my head and needed help from someone with extensive training experience and past knowledge. That person was Bill Baehr. Bill worked with July and I from start to finish, first teaching excellent ground manners and respect of personal space, desensitization and trust, and finally the lesson that being ridden can be fun. July progressed quickly and before I knew it, it was time to lope her across open country. Amazing! I never would have thought that you could take an untrained, barely handled mare and have her learn so much so fast. Bill was not only extremely thorough and comprehensive, but he was unhurried and made sure we had the results we wanted before moving on to the next task. Riding an inexperienced horse can be scary, but I knew that Bill and I had done the necessary groundwork and I trusted him completely. By using proven training methods, Bill ensured the safest environment possible for me and my horse. Bill was also kind to the horse and very patient. The best part of the training was my direct involvement, and Bill’s belief that the rider/owner must have a hands –on role. I pestered him with many questions about how and why things were done, and Bill patiently explained everything I needed to know. He would show me what to do and I would take over and do them, while he coached me every step of the way. Learning how to train from Bill was a privilege and I would love the opportunity to work with him again. I truely believe in his methods and would recommend him to any rider, trainer, or horse enthusiast.

I highly recommend Dennis and Bright Ranch for horseback riding! My 10 year old son begged for us to get him lessons for almost a year. I found the Bright Ranch and explained exactly what kind of experience we were looking for. After the first lesson, my son gave Dennis the highest compliments and is looking forward to many days spent learning to ride and care for the horses. We are very happy to have found such a great program!

I have never done any horseback riding before so I was a little nervous to start but after meeting with Susan for the first time and being introduced to the horses and having a tour of the property I felt very comfortable to begin my lessons. After my first lesson I was hooked. Susan is an amazing instructor. She is very informative, patient, and her passion for horses and teaching is highly expressed. She is also super fun to be around and very down to earth. I am currently on my fifth lesson and I am handling the horse better than I've ever excepted. I have fallen so in love with horses and learning how to ride I eventually will like to compete. The Triton Property is also very beautiful. There is plenty of space to ride and learn. This has truly been a very therapeutic and wonderful experience and I can't wait for my next lesson!

Great for adults and kids! My daughter has been riding at KMT for 7 years and I have been riding there for 2 years. KMT has great trainers, great horses and a fantastic program from beginners to advanced. KMT participates in IEA, big rated show and also puts on several schooling shows throughout the year. It is a safe program and provides a fantastic, supportive environment for kids and teenagers.

I started riding as an adult and looked for a program that encouraged the horse experience from the ground up. The trainers at Skye Valley Training gave me a strong foundation for my horse journey by helping me get to know how to properly care for a horse, learn how to ride it and appreciate horsemanship and the joyful relationship that comes with spending time on a horse. Ten years later I am riding on my own special equine partner and spending amazing times with my kids who are also riding and eventing throughout Northern California. Watching my kids grow and learn empathy and compassion as well as responsibility for their horse has been such a wonderful experience. All of us have acquire poise and confidence during our horse journey and it has been so much fun to spend horse filled weekends camping with the horses, watching my kids compete as a team, not only with their horse but with the other eventers or dressage riders showing alongside us. I didn't know when I started on that first riding lesson ten years ago that it would become such a passion and fulfilling part of my family's life. Skye Valley Training gave us the foundation by providing quality lessons, strong mentorship, fantastic lesson horses and a great barn atmosphere and friendly clientele. Adults and children alike will get riding lessons suited to the absolute beginner or to more advanced riders. The trainers also have experience in working with young horses, training you and your horse to the next level and provide a varied and extensive training program if you have a horse. World class clinicians come to our barn on a regular basis and our home barn schooling shows offer all riders show experience at any level. Our barn is fantastic as well, offering miles of trails, 2 indoor and 2 outdoor arenas for year round riding. You will not be disappointed if you start your horse journey with Skye Valley Training!

Everyone offers a different way of training, horses and humans alike respond differently with who they interact with. I like to make relationships with the students as well as horses and see how we can better communicate between all parties by studying human and horse behavior.

About

I specialize in teaching beginners on how to communicate, trust, and ride horses. I teach both Western and English styles of riding, in a safe and comfortable way. I start all beginners on a line until they have the confidence and skill to control their own horse. We slowly make our way off line and into the larger arena. I do not allow my students to advance to the next level not until they have displayed proper control of the horse. I aim to provide a safe environment where humans and horses can learn, interact, and grow together by establishing a relationship of mutual trust and respect through the use of gentle communication.
