Limited lesson dates available. Wasn't able to use my Groupon. My suggestion would be to call them first to find out lesson dates and times.

Although my daughter had fun, she did find that not all the trainers were pleasant. More patients with the kids as they are learning the naming of our equipment would have made the lessons more enjoyable and possibly made her want to continue on.

Horrible experience - owner was rude to children. Not worth the money.

The instruction on the horses was fine; good experience with my daughter. Staff were OK, but maybe prefer those with previous experience with horses. Stables did not seem exceptionally clean. They did have equipment to borrow, which was great.

Lesson was great! Wish we could have more riding time and cut short on grooming.

Filthy facilities, no bedding in the stalls, just puddles of urine. No functional toilet. No tap to clean the bit off after the ride. Time to groom and tack up came out of the "hour" lesson, meaning actual ride time was much less, especially for beginners who had to share a horse. Instructors were rude to parents and not especially nice to students either. Claims of the instructor having 20 years of experience? Not unless she started teaching as a toddler. Seems like a super-good deal for 4 lessons, but not if you don't want to go back after the first one.

I have ridden at quite a few barns over the years and was looking to get back into riding as well as introduce my kids to a potentially wonderful experience. This was not a wonderful experience. I found (most) of the staff to be quite unfriendly and particularly uninviting to children and their parents. The barn was dirty, and I know barns are dirty they will have cobwebs and dirt around, but this barn consistently had pools of urine in the stalls with little to no bedding and no functional washroom for riders to use. The one "washroom" available was in an old barn separate from the arena/stalls and we went through a maze in the dark to try and find it by the light of my phone, only to discover that the toilet was disgustingly filthy and did not flush. One of the instructors (the one who was there most frequently) had very little patience for children and was outright rude to parents. The other was, new to the barn and great, but we only saw her once. The children's lessons required the kids to share a mount for the "one hour" lessons and ended up being maybe 10 minutes of riding time. After the second lesson my daughter did not want to go back in spite of her love for horses and eagerness to ride. The adult lessons gave closer to the hour of riding time, depending on how long the other students took to tack up. All other barns I have ridden at do not include tack up time in the lesson, they ask you to come half an hour ahead of time to groom and tack up. Here you don't even get to find out what horse you are riding until immediately before your lesson. If you are looking for a barn to have a great introduction to the riding world look elsewhere.

Janet was a bit unfriendly, the kids felt she wasn't helpful in the barn but the trainer was excellent. Very casual atmosphere. They didn't seem to worried about keeping our business for the future. A little more friendliness would have made us decide to stay on for more lessons.

If your interested in riding this isn't for you! I purchased this for my daughter and every week she spent only 10 or 15 minutes riding! She spent all the time brushing saddling and cleaning the stalls! One week after doing all this work she had to take turns on the horse with another child! Very disappointed! I was hoping for her to continue riding but im not paying all this money for her to clean the stalls and brush the horse! Very go else where!

From Our Editors

There's a 19-stall barn and an attached arena inside Equestrian Arts. Outside, an expansive sand ring, including jumps and paddocks, stands near a horse-bathing area and grooming stall. Ruling this expansive roost is a team of experienced trainers and horse handlers. Certified coach Janet heads up the lesson program, using her 20 years of riding experience to lead group sessions for riders of all ability. Beginners can pick up riding basics atop friendly and patient school horses, as well as grooming, tacking up, and horse-handling skills. Boarding services, camps, and birthday parties are also available for visitors.
