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.

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.

Schwarzer Sporthorses specializes in developing a solid foundation for both horses and riders at any level. While we mostly compete at hunter/jumper competitions, we spend a great amount of time developing dressage/flat skills and try to get out of the arena as much as possible. From beginner to advanced riders, we mount and match horses for optimum learning and success. For the horses, from green broke to made, we create an individualized program with the input from owners to keep our equine partners healthy, sound, and happy. We attend several shows per year from schooling shows to A-rated competitions. Please visit our website for more details about the programs available and how we can help you achieve your riding goals!

We have been training with Rhonda for over 3 years now and it has been a positive experience for my daughter. Rhonda has a special connection with children of all ages and seems to enjoy working with them no matter what level of horsemanship they are at. Rhonda makes the time in the arena a positive experience by using age appropriate analogies to get a child to understand any given concept and providing them with encouraging feedback when a skill is achieved. Rhonda also spends many hours at shows with the kids supporting them with all aspects of show life. Her experience as a seasoned horseman helps to prepare the kids for each event.
