Great training, nice horse, wonderful location!
I have ridden horses my entire life. Growing up here in Atlanta I used to ride up north of the city in places that are now huge subdivisions. When I moved back here after college and bought a house in-town, it appeared at first glance that I was going to have to go at least an hour north (without traffic!)to ride.
Then I found Dana and the Atlanta Riding Academy. First of all, the location cannot be beat! Less then 10 miles from my house!
Second of all, Dana and her horses are wonderful. It is clear that she is very experienced and very caring towards both her students and her horses. She will push you without ever over-facing you, teach you a ton, and most of all...always make sure you have fun!
She has also created the Atlanta Jump Club, which is a "club" consisting of her adult riders. We get together about once a month for dinner, drinks, and horse talk! We also attend clinics, help each other out at shows, volunteer at horse rescues, etc. It is so nice to have a group of friends that I can share my love of horses with!
If you are looking for a great trainer in Atlanta, definitely give Dana a call, she is the best!
