Testimonials

Hear what some of the students are saying about SaddleBack Equestrian

Hanley has been training at SaddleBack a little over a year now. From her first time on horseback to where she is now has been exciting to watch. What I really like about SaddleBack and her instructor is that my daughter doesn't just show up and ride a horse. Her instructor takes her through the entire process of going to get the horse, brushing the horse, going to the tack room and getting the saddle, pad, bridal and putting it on the horse. Then she gets to ride! When she is done riding she has to put up all the tack, brush/wash the horse and take it back to the pasture. SaddleBack is teaching her life skills that Hanley may not fully understand yet at her young age, but will definitely take with her and appreciate as she grows up.

I have always loved horses and it has been a life-long dream of mine (I'm in my 60's) to learn how to ride.  Starting in 2012, I had the opportunity to do just that at SaddleBack, and it's been a wonderful ride!  The trainers have been so helpful and encouraging in my journey to become an equestrian.  Everyone at SaddleBack has been so friendly, and I feel like they are now a part of my extended family.  This whole experience has brought great joy to my life!
