Kids & I had a great time, worth the drive, highly recommend..! Tip: bring a couple carrots to give the horses, it's fun to get to feed them from your hand...

The staff was overwhelmed with a little kid birthday party at the time we scheduled for our lessons, so our lesson started about 45 min late. My kids, who were first time riders, were left to their own devices for part of the lesson when the trainer left the ring to go do something else. I will say that the horses seemed well trained and taken care, so no issues there, but I just didn't feel very comfortable around the staff. Maybe they were just stretched too thin that day. My kids did really enjoy their lessons, but the stable never called me back to schedule the second lesson. I decided not to follow up, because the location was far for us and I wasn't motivated to return.

She knows what she is doing, is no nonsense and it was a fun, safe way to try out horse back riding.

Lessons are always late and they usually don't have a whole lot of staff to assist you when you show up. But great horses and arena to ride

From Our Editors

Six-year-old Tammy McDonald fearlessly hops into the saddle for her first horseback lesson, excited to finally follow in her family’s equestrian footsteps with this foray into riding. Fast-forward to 1988, as Tammy––by now an experienced competitive rider and horse trainer–– takes over Willow Lake Ranch from her family and converts it into a horse-training facility of her own. Intent on fully transforming the facility, Tammy has since dappled the rolling ranch’s lush pastures and clusters of evergreens with horse-centric amenities including a covered riding arena, tack rooms, and a wash rack replete with pony-sized shower caps. Over the course of any given week, Tammy and her crew of instructors can be found imparting their sizeable know-how to pupils of all ages and abilities during riding lessons or helping experienced riders hone their skills via intensive clinics held periodically throughout the year. As summer unfurls, full-day riding camps introduce young steed riders to horses via activities such as basic tacking skills and games of MASH with the stallion of their choice.
