Horrible people, lame camp

I brought my daughter here for a camp. She was treated terribly by the regular clients (mostly young girls that were very cliquish, who made nasty comments that were meant to be overheard), and complaints to staff were ignored. Some of the other Mom's felt the same way. Adding to the disappointment was the rain, keeping us off the horses for 3 of the 5 days. Next time, I will find a camp with an indoor arena

Bad Barn

I used to ride at Switch Willo in the lesson program, and after many cons about the barn have moved. All 50+ lesson horses are crammed into a muddy, disgusting pasture, with no grass and minimal care. I often would find my assigned horse reeking of thrush (hoof bacteria from standing in filth) and many horses were very thin. The arenas are horrible, I have had my knees crushed many times from the stupid trees that li... view more

From an adult rider's perspective, it's not the best out there

I am not a kid, so my review does not come from my child's experience at camp. Instead, I am an experienced adult rider that took lessons at this barn for about 1.5 years before switching to another barn in Austin. When I first moved to Austin, I did not do my research; I just went to SW because they had the most ads in the YPs and online. After doing my research, I found a much better barn and am happy there.\r ... view more

AWSOME BARN

aLL of you commenters say bad things about this barn just because your kids say so... THEY ARE KIDS! And who cares about the summer camp, the actual barn is amazing. The facilities are outstanding, and the horses are cared for very well. For example, my horse got sick one night, and no one would have noticed if the workers weren't so attentive! The trainers are all profesional, highly experienced adults, and give gre... view more

Awesome Summer Camp Experience

My family TOTALLY disagrees with the negative comments about this camp. They have an incredible program and are able to accommodate a large number of children (27?) from ages 6 to 16 with varying riding skills quite well.\r \r I have had occasion to spend quite a bit of time at the stable during camp. The facility is crawling with adults. There are 8 trainers along with a huge staff, and tack shop personnel in addi... view more

Average barn in Austin

Not a bad barn, no adult supervision for the camp. Counselors are young teens with no enthusiasm, beginner riders hardily ride at all, the trees in the arenas appear to get in the way, and the school horses are in decent shape despite all 50 being crammed into a muddy pasture. I have heard the trainers curse often at their students, and they remain immature and rude. The camp fee was almost unreasonable as well as t... view more

summer camps not worth the money 2

I agree with the previous review about camp. This is an expensive camp, unavoidably since looking after horses is expensive (although in addition to the camp fee which was $285/week this summer, they charged $18 for a t-shirt and $12 for a grooming kit so the costs really added up) - yet the younger children especially learn very little with horses and watch videos endlessly. They can do that at home for free! Des... view more

Summer camps not worth the money.

The summer camps are not worth the money. They might be close in to town but your girls will watch more videos and swim than real horseback riding time. The plus side is their facilities are very nicely kept. I don't have any comments on boarding or lessons as we haven't used it.

Premiere Equestrian Facility in Austin

The Switch Willo facility is breathtaking. There is gorgeous landscaping all over the grounds and it truly is a hidden gem. The location is amazing, close to downtown with lots to do all around the barn, but still secluded and peaceful. \r The care at this barn is great. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and great with the horses. They notice if anything is off and the experienced staff gets on the problem right ... view more
