My HORSE loves Cherokee Arabians!
I have a 28 1/2 year old Arabian Mare that I've owned since August 5,1987 when I helped her mother foal. I owned her mother for 24 of her 26 years so this mare means a great deal to me. I had her at home with me for many years but in 2012 I moved her to Cherokee and sold my acerage. I would never have been able to do that if I hadn't found Helene. At Cherokee it's not all about the money, it's for the love of horses. Helene pours her heart and soul into the horses and she takes care of my mare with all the love and care that I do. I would pay 3 X what she charges if I found a better facility but I haven't. My mare is observed, scrutinized and Helene notices every nuance, every slight ...
Best in the west valley!
I had an amazing time here. I scheduled a private lesson with Alice, and it was well worth it! I learned the basics with Alice's help, and I felt very welcomed . The farm is a very family friendly place, and they have the most gorgeous horses! Alice made sure I was safe and comfortable, and she allowed me to move at my own pace. I recommend this stable to anyone looking to ride !
Excellent Instructor & Fun Instructor
My wife and I are (were?) beginner riders. We have, as of 11/12/13, been receiving instruction from Joni Fitts for about 2 months. We have progressed very rapidly and are already in a more advanced class. Joni is an excellent instructor who is very knowledgeable and who, more importantly, knows how to impart her knowledge to new riders. And she is a fun, vibrant person who my wife and I truly enjoy to be around. There is no way Joni deserves the one-star rating that one of the other reviewers gave her. I will gladly personally recommend her to anyone. And yes this is a real review by a real student -- ask anyone at Joni's school about the lawyer and his wife. They will tell you...
My daughter has grown so much here
We started riding here just over a year ago. The instructors were amazing. They have taken the time to teach her not only riding but ground work, tacking, grooming and overall care of a horse. I would never stay if the horses were not cared for. The horses have their feet done regularly and they have an on call vet. This is a large barn with at lot of horses. Some of the horses are young and spirited and others are older. They do have a few rescue horses who are over 30. They are not used in lessons but are walked, given treats and loved by the kids who walk by. They have a full time stable person who cleans the stalls and feeds the horses twice a day. I have added pictures of...
Amazing boarding experience
We have been boarding for a year at The Orchards and couldn't be happier! Our 3 horses are spoiled rotten by the owner and staff! Excellent feed, care, and loving treatment is the norm for this facility. The owner is very accommodating, knowledgeable, and will bend over backwards for you and your horse. Every horse on the property is loved on daily and has the best care you can ask for. the lesson program is fantastic with great horses for beginners or more advanced students. We have learned more in one hour with owner than several years of owning horses ourselves. This is a fantastic facility, loving staff, and welcoming atmosphere. Couldnt be happier!!!
