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.
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!
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.
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 ridden with Diane for 13+ years now and cannot say enough good things about her. Simply the best there is. If you are a beginner and want to learn to ride in a professional, fun and safe environment, give Diane a call. 3D Farms also offers high-level training for experienced riders in both dressage and jumping. If you are a horse-owner looking for a trainer, your horse will have top quality training and care at 3D Farms. If my horse could leave a review, he would give Diane 5 stars too!
Belinda is an amazing riding instructor—knowledgable, patient, and encouraging. She teaches lessons in arena and on trail, and tailors nicely to your skill level. Her horses are the sweetest as well! I've felt myself improve over the past couple of months, while having a lot of fun.
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.
Since I started training under Erika Campbell, I have since took First place in my Rookie Reining Show class at only my second Reining show! I was brand new to the sport of Reining and needed a lot of work on my riding skills. She has helped my overall riding skills immensely and given me the confidence I lacked. Erika makes training fun and she puts her heart and soul into training horses and riders. Whether you just want to be a better horsemen or go compete, Erika will help you accomplish your goals! She is very professional and one of the the hardest working trainers that I know. She cares about her clients and treats them like family. I would highly recommend her for any horse training services you need!
My boxer Lola started showing aggressive behavior towards other dogs in the last few months. She also didn’t listen to me when she was off leash causing major stress. Shay was able to show me amazing tips and tricks that worked with Lola and her behavior did a 180. She now listens when I tell her to come and also doesn’t pull me when walking. I no longer feel stressed out when I walk her or when she is playing with other dogs. Shay is incredibly knowledgeable regarding how to communicate with dogs. You see a complete change of behavior when your dog is around her. She also works with you and helps you communicate better with your dog. I feel a much stronger bond with Lola than I did before now that I have implemented what Shay has taught me. She also explains to you the psychology behind why your dog behaves a certain way and compares it real life situations with people, making it easier to relate and understand what your dog is experiencing when you talk or act a certain way towards them. Shay was able to spot things I was doing that were causing her behavior within just a few minutes. I thought I could just teach myself by watching tv shows such as Caesar Milan or reading online; but the few things I was doing wrong; I probably would not have known if it wasn’t for Shay’s abilities to read the energy between people and dogs so well. It was these little things that I didn’t even know I was doing. So glad to have found Shay and I hope to continue working with her for Lola!!!
Sam is a highly capable and knowledgeable instructor who recognizes the unique needs of individual students, is prepared for every lesson, and wants her students to enjoy their learning processes. She combines kindness with just the right amount of tough love to support students as they strengthen their riding skills. I recommend Sam to both new and experienced riders.
Clear, consistent prompt communication. Attention to horse care and wellness that is second to none. Compassionate training of the horse that seeks first to understand, then to inspire a better performance rather than using force or coersion. Genuine respect and consideration for the owner/client. I have been riding for over 30 years and cannot say enough great things about Kelly Jennings and Cellar Door Farm.

If you've got the horse, I'm willing to teach!
