Excellent Equestrian Center and Coaches, 1/28/2013

This is a well run facility with excellent coaches who really care about the kids and horses. My daughter has learned a lot in 3 years and enjoys competing in IEA shows now. Coaches are great with... the kids.

OCEC is the place to ride!, 1/26/2013

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Oak Creek Equestrian Center (OCEC) !!! If you want your child in a well-run program with a highly professional trainer who sincerely cares about all of the students and horses then... this is the barn for you! I've been involved with many trainers and barns around the Atlanta area for many, many years and can't say enough about this environment and trainer. Your child will be taught excellent horsemanship, hunter riding skills in a happy, safe environment. Isn't that the bottomine of what you're looking for? Dana Karen loves her students, horses, and shows nothing but professionalism at all times. Don't listen to any negativity from sour grapes on this website...go meet Dana, her horses, her riders and their parents and you'll understand what I mean immediately. This is definitely the place to let your child ride, learn, grow, and be nurtured at the same time. Thank goodness we found Oak Creek Equestrian Center - we couldn't possibly be happier with this barn and trainer!

Great place

Our daughter loves Oak Creek. she rides with the barn 's IEA team and has lessons and practice sessions 3 times a week. As parents we particularly like the fact that your child can ride so much and compete in shows at local, regional and maybe even national level without having the responsibility of owning a horse. Our daughter spends hours at the barn, she enjoys the time she spends with the horses, her friends and the people who work there. And it's so convenient, avoiding having to drive out further .

From beginner to advanced

Oak Creek Stables provides 2 in town locations that are safe and clean environments. My child did her first horse camp at Oak Creek this summer and loved the horses and instructors. She is now continuing in their lesson program.

Unstable Environment for Your Child

Manager cycles thru instructors every 6-8 months. Been here over 18 months, been thru 4 instructors in that time. No other activity (gymnastics, ballet, music, etc)my child participates in has that much turnover among those directly involved with teaching her. Sets a very poor example and doesn't allow for closure when instructors move on. Poor communication among the staff that starts with the manager and trickles down. NOT a supportive environment for developing lasting role models. Too much inconsistency and a scatterbrained leader. You can find better, look a little further out.

Great Place

My daughter has been riding here for over 2 years. Can't beat the convenience. Dana works well with the kids. Its not a fancy place but it has everything you need to ride successfully--and I don't need to own a horse!

Safe, Affordable and Convenient

My daughter has been riding at Oak Creek Stables for over 2 years. She wants to ride horses in college. We cannot afford to own or care for our own horse. This stable and its ownership has provided an affordable opportunity for our daughter to live her dream. I have NEVER felt that my daughter was not safe. The animals are well cared for and my daughter gets the opportunity to help with this care and has learned the responsibility of animal ownership. There are so few stables left in our area. I am greatful to the property owners for continuing to mantain this property for equestrian use. It is conveniently located in East Cobb and truly has provided my child with a great opportunity. I HIGHLY recommend this stable and owner!

Lack of confidence

My child has taken lessons at this facility and I was sadly disappointed at the care of the horses, facility, and the knowledge of safety for my child. I do NOT recommend this facility, the lack of professionalism and knowledge of the horse industry is very evident.

Best Value in Town for Riding Lessons

We've been with Oak Creek for just over 2 years and are very happy with the instruction. My daughters love the horses, instructors and petting zoo animals. They have learned so much in a short time. We highly recommend it.

You Can't Go Wrong...

...choosing Oak Creek Stable. We're in our third year there, and it gets better and better. Students learn everything, from proper care of horses to tacking up to proper riding techniques. The stable has mounts for young beginners on up. Dana is a caring manager, and the trainers are wonderful and very good with children, with loads of experience. My child is learning so much and her confidence has greatly increased. Highly recommended!

Great Team

This is our first experience with horseback riding and Dana and her team have made it such a fun and positive experience for my nine year old daughter. She can't wait each week for her lesson and is so happy when it's over. I am very pleased with Oak Creek Stables and look forward to a long term relationship with Dana and her team.

Nice Stable

Daughter (7 yrs) just started lessons. Great teachers, safety a priority. Small horses/ponies for the beginner. Off horse care/equipment part of lesson. So far a great experience.

Best Stable in Town

Oak Creek is a great stable for children to learn everything they need to know to ride and care for a horse. Good variety of horses and great instruction for all ages. My daughter loves spending time each week at the barn.
