Just by the way, the most previous "nice" review writers were told to write the reviews by the owner of the barn because of all the TRUE bad reviews. This barn sucks! The people who show at local shows have to work atleast 2 hours a week there to be on the team. EVEN BOARDERS!! You can't just hang out with your horse, the owner of the barn will make you do stalls, put poop in the dumpster, muck out muddy pastures, water horses, rake the barn, or sweep. All the horses are malnourished and are unhealthy! They are run into the ground until they can no longer work. The trainers don't make you work if you are a good rider and don't push you. There are only about 4 lesson horses for about 15 lessons a day, 7 days a week. My advise DO NOT go to this filthy barn! It is also infested with rats! Every where you go, you see rats! I rode at this barn for about a two months and it has been the worst experience around horses in my life! They don't do rated shows and only local shows about once every 3 months! Board is $525 a month for no grass pastures, a ridiculously small arena, VERY small stalls and crappy tack. Board should be at the most $300 a month. I was looking to board my pony here (that's why I was taking lessons), but trust me, Fortitude Farm and Patchwork is SOOOO much better! Do not go to this barn!
