Amazing Barn

Some of my best memories come from this amazing barn. I had the privilege of attending Manito's summer camp program when I was younger, which led to lessons and an apprenticeship. I would recommend this barn to anyone who has a passion for horsemanship or the desire to learn. Manito taught me so much more than what I learned in my lessons. I gained confidence, respect for myself and others, work ethic and many mo... view more

Not a great place. Horses are ...

Not a great place. Horses are nice, but very old. Some walk with an obvious limp. A lot of them cough. I took four lessons here. Had three different instructors, each one told me completely different things. Very confusing and a complete waste of money (plus lessons are expensive -- $55 for one hour which includes 15 of grooming the horse before the lesson and 15 minutes grooming them after, so you only get a maximum... view more

Review of Lesson Stable

As others have mentioned, facility seems to have untapped potential and is in a good location. However the barn seems to have trouble keeping good riding instructors and new personnel are constantly coming and going. It made it hard on my daughter, who would grow attached to one teacher only to have a new one a few weeks later. In a six month period she had roughly four or five different instructors and it seemed we ... view more

Happy Rider

My daughter also rides at Manito, and we are extremely happy. We have actually enjoyed the various perspectives offered by the teachers at Manito and see this as a positive. My daughter has been able to pick up new techniques that were not explained or offered to her at the barn she rode at previously. We were looking forward to the new instructor taking over my daughter

great place

If you have been in the horse business, you will appreciate the efforts of this owner. We are the only ones who get it. Most of us have been unable to do what she has done. Those who are not barn owners, or those with personal agendas- get a life and give the woman the credit she deserves. How many of you have 36 year old horses? How many of you have survived the recession without closing your barns? How many of you... view more

Could have been good

My daughter rides at Manito and, although our current experience is decent, I feel that the barn has much untapped potential. The current instructor is excellent, however I fear Manito's terrible ability to retain employees. It seems like no money is invested in the facility or the horses and the barn is heading for inevitable collapse. The owner is rarely on the premises and appears to have little true interaction w... view more

Dissapointed in Horse Care

I cannot in good conscience recommend a so called professional boarding and lesson facility that uses a 35+ year old underweight mare in their lesson program. I understand that times are difficult, but employing the use of a horse that should have obviously been retired years ago simply to make money is deplorable and unethical. I am also very disappointed in the weight and overall condition of this particular horse.... view more

No. way.

1 star... because the horses are fantastic.. the owner... not so much. She has to be bi-polar, it's very unfortunate that the place is run the way it is. For years now it seems they've had such a high turnover rate with instructors, workers. PS, if she tells you she sold you a horse/is making a deal on a horse - 1. make sure you get that documented. 2. and take the horse off the property! Either she will ... view more

Great Barn and Great horses

Manito is a great barn! My daughter takes lessons there now and she is doing great and loves the barn, the horses and her instructor. It is one of the best places to happen to my family. My daughter has been very shy and since she started taking lessons there she is now participating in class and her grades are coming up. Her instructor, Valentina is wonderful, every little girl should have someone so kind as thei... view more
