As soon as you step into the barn you're greeted with a warm smile and hello. Everyone is very friendly. The horses are very nice, and very well trained. I've ridden at Crossroads since I was about 9, I'm 16 now. I've created a strong bond with all the horses, not to mention one in particular who will always have a special place in my heart. Crossroads not only taught me how to ride and be sucessful in the show ring, But also many life long lessons. I even made some great friendships along the way. Crossroads gives lessons to any level rider, whether it's your first time on a horse, or you're a serious competitor. The trainers are very knowlegeable and very kind. It's a wonderful little barn, with a very at home atmosphere. Check it out. :D

I currently am riding at a barn in alpharetta. I have a couple friends at crossroads an have thought about switching. I have not seen it for myself but have been told wonderful things. One of the trainers even gave her her horse! we have been looking for a horse and the boarding seems very affordable and the horses are well taken care of. Its about 20 miles away from me but thats a step up from my other barn. I would love to come check u guys out!!

I had an interesting experience at Crossroads Equestrian. I was there for a little over a year. I had both positive and negative experiences at the barn. I did love the atmosphere and how it was run. The horses there are all very good horses. The training was a mix of good and bad. Sometimes when I would ride I would be told by the trainer that it was amazing, and then other times she would completely rip every bit of my riding to shreds. I did not always learn the way she instructed. All in all, Crossroads is a good barn, but it depends on what your'e looking for riding-wise and training-wise.

Crossroads Equestrian Center clearly loves horses! The animals are well cared for and friendly. This family run business offers a "homey" atmosphere and makes everyone feel welcome.If you are looking for a casual, loving environment, you can't do better than Crossroads Equestrian!

horses were well cared for but instructor offered no technical step-by-step instruction. As a visual learner, I value demonstration, but 3 "demos" in a 30-min lesson is too much, esp. when she didn't point out anything that a good trainer couldn't have communicated verbally. Teaching is a gift that takes strong communication skills. A good instructor should focus on students personal goals and should never be critical of a student's inability. I left feeling like it was hopeless to bother taking lessons. It's not constructive criticism when a trainer is condescending from minute 1 or when they say in front of other students that they "don't see much potential." It's unacceptable and just plain mean. I can only deduce that it was personal which is her prerogative. People pay for lessons to LEARN to ride, not to be insulted to boost the trainer's ego. She may work better with children than adults. I have met others who left after bad experiences. People should take lessons from an instructor they click with-I simply didn't fit here. More power to those who found an equestrian home at CE. In all fairness, give the place a try and decide for yourself. In resp. to bbcook, sorry if you feel I update my posts too much -- it's not personal.

Joplum1 took one lesson in march. we at Crossroads are sad that she feels she has to update her march review numerous times. If she had a bad lesson then we are sorry. Our barn is a happy place. We have riders that have been with us since we opened our doors. Many use our barn as a place to come and relax. We invite all to come and visit us and judge for yourself.

I have nothing but good things to say about Crossroads. My daughter has been there for a year now and has made amazing progress. This is because she loves the horses and the trainers, who have been very patient and loving. She really loves not only being able to ride the horses, but learning to groom and tack the horse as well, and sometimes feeding them too! They are flexible and will make up sick/rain days, and even offer group lessons. They have competitive rates and a convenient location. From what I understand, these are unique qualities in a stable, and I would highly recommend them to all.

My daughter has been riding at this barn for almost a year. It has been a great experience for her. She has become a beautiful rider under the expert training here. Also, the owners have made us feel like family. They have welcomed and encouraged my daughter (who is 12 and struggling to adjust without her father) and been such a positive influence in her life. I cannot say enough good things about this barn and its owners and trainers. They are wonderful with kids, and they do it because they love it! I feel bad for Joplum that she had a bad experience here, but I know that is not the norm. Their excellent training and care of horses is evident at the barn. I know that riding here has made my daughter's life (and mine) much happier. They are great people and it is a great barn.
