    Trainers Late and Unfriendly
    firefly2014 (1 review)
    10/07/2014

    My daughter had her birthday party in August, but one of the trainers was 30 minutes late for the birthday party. We found one of the trainers at the party to be unfriendly. We shrugged it off as an anomaly and my daughter began beginner riding lessons in August. The trainer was condescending to the children and told them "she wasn't going to teach them anything if they didn't ride on the rail." After I complained the owner offered private lessons with yet another trainer in an attempt to make things right, but the new trainer was late for the lesson and the owner didn't mention that the lesson would be shorter. When I complained about the lack of communication the owner dismissed us as a client. So not only were the trainers late and unfriendly on a consistent basis, so was the owner.

    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!

    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!

    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 .

    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
    promethean_mom (1 review)
    5/20/2009

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ...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!

    This has been a dream come true for my daughter who was born loving horses. She has ment some wonderful friends of all ages, she has matured into a responsible, happy young lady though her love of horses and all the work she does there. These are the happiest days of her life and I'm greatful that they are so close and I can watch her have this beautiful experience.
