Aleya is extremely nice, and knows the horses well. The lesson horses are very sweet as well. Looking forward to future lessons!
Excellent care of horses, and Danielle found me a great teacher for private riding lessons
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 Bills 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 have been training with Dina for 10 years. She is a phenomenal teacher. Dina learns each of her students strengths and weaknesses and tailors her lessons accordingly. She always talks with her students to find out each of their goals and develops a program to help them reach it. I am always telling her she has the patience of a saint. My riding skills would not be where they are today if it werent for her teaching me over the years. Dina always gives the horses the best care and training. I never worried about my horse when I had to leave town because I knew he would be cared for like he was her own. Dina incorporates many different activities (shows, trail rides, cross country schooling, horse camping) to make her students riding experience the best it can be. If you are looking to advance your riding skills and have a good time doing it, I highly recommend training with Dina.
Alicia is an excellent riding coach! I worked with her for about a year or so taking jumping and dressage lessons and having her school my 12yo warm blood mix eventer. She was always positive and encouraging but had a great eye for what we should improve and was always pushing us to be our best. The improvement in my horse's self carriage, attentiveness, and flexibility was truly amazing during my time with Alicia. The work she did on my riding technique allowed me to make big improvements that I will always be grateful to her for! I really just can't say enough good about her attitude, work eithic, and incredible skills. She's fantastic!
My daughter is loving her lessons and the encouragement she's given has created such confidence. It's amazing.

She has high expectations for her riders and is supportive of students of all levels.
We had gone to several barns/ranches trying to find a good fit for my 9 year old daughter. Jessica has been by far the best fit in terms of teaching about the basics of horse care, basic horse riding, and now training for shows. She is able to balance just the right amount of demands for my daughter to achieve success and mixing in praise where needed. My daughter's love of horses and riding has grown tremendously. As an added benefit my daughter general confidence in life has grown along the way. We owe a special thanks to Jessica.

My daughter has learned so much from her experience with Robyn! Not only has her confidence grown but she had become a confident rider and can ride almost any horse she rides. I cannot say enough. If you have the opportunity to get a lesson with Robyn it will be money well spent.
Hannah watched my dog and my apartment for two weeks while I was on vacation in Michigan. Not only did she do a great job, she went above and beyond. When I came home, my house was cleaner than when I left it, and she had washed and groomed my dog FOR FREE! I ran out of dog food halfway through the vacation, but she had no problem going to the store and picking some up. My dog loved the food that she bought, and I still use it today! A+++ for Happy tails!
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!
Great instructor! Very patient with the kids and thorough with older riders. Very good lesson horses and a great family atmosphere! Highly recommended :)
This barn is a awesome! One of the cleanest barns I have seen, there is always someone there, and the horses all seem very happy and well cared for. I started taking lessons and from the beginning everyone has been welcoming(not the norm I found out). This barn is worth every penny. And Carol is a hoot!
