“A few years ago I was looking for something fun to do with my daughter.  I visited, Beth, at "The Riding School".  It has homey, family oriented and not frilly.  I didn't want the "keeping up with the Jones" scene.  I just wanted to have my daughter learn about horses in a "no stress, no pressure" atmosphere.  She started with an evaluation ride.  This shows the trainer (Beth) what skills she has.  She started to ride once a week.  It became a "I can't wait for Wednesday".  She seemed to be having such a good time that I started riding also.”

”I became hooked.  My once a week lessons turned into twice a week then I leased (which means you can ride as many times a week as you want).  I fell in love with "Burt" he became my buddy and looked for me and recognized my truck or car.  We started to learn to trust each other more and more.”

”Yes, it happened.  I wanted to own Burt and have my own barn and riding area.  We live on 3 acres in Vista.  My dream came true.  The barn was finished the arena in and Burt was on his way home.  I also needed to have a friend and companion for Burt.  I purchased "Brandy" also from Beth.  I was very familiar with Brandy's needs and she was a little slower and older than Burt.  Perfect for my daughter.”

”We have been having a blast ever since.  Beth has become a very dear friend.  Her information and knowledge for horses is an asset.”

”I would recommend "The Riding School" to those of you who want to learn and care for a horse.  Beth's horses live to ripe old ages because of the healthy care and the years of knowledge. No horse is ridden or used beyond their ability.   All of Beth's horses are family!”

“My daughter started taking lessons when she was 6 1/2 yrs old. She went on one trail ride on vacation and was hooked. I found The Riding School on the Internet and it has been the best find ever!  My daughter has gone from no skills to learning to be responsible and passing onwhat she has learned. Ms. Beth is patient and encouraging. She teaches the kids and families the importance of caring for your horse and being responsible. My daughter is now 10 1/2 and she wants to come and spend the day, just to be with the horses, do chores, and learn.  She has learned the importance of all aspects of riding; caring for your equipment, caring for fellow riders and the horses.”

”Because Ms. Beth has gradually increased her expectations, my daughter now has the confidence to help a new student learn the ropes. The entire family is welcome and can help out if they want to.”

”I have hosted 3 birthday parties over 3 years for 8, 9, and 10 yr old girls.  They range in no experience to some experience, and each of them had the best time. They learned about riding, the responsibility of a horse, and the work that goes into having one. They come away muddy and smelly and love every minute of it. Its the only place they don't complain about chores!!”

”If you or your child is interested in riding or learning to ride- I highly recommend The Riding School. It's more than a school, it’s a family.”
