I agree with Katie. My 7yo daughter and I started riding at this stable just over a year ago and I LOVE it! No clicks, no pressure and every lesson is tailored to the individuals riding capabilities. She was a very timid rider and lacked confidence just being around horses , but everyone there has been so supportive and patient with her. Today she not only rides, but grooms, tacks, blankets and feeds a wonderful horse named Austin. She is not only ALLOWED to do this but is ENCOURAGED to do this! (With proper supervision of course.) Most other barns I've been to dont provide any bonding time with the horses.";Get in, get on, get out and pay me before you leave." Really folks? Is this the type of experience you are looking for? Give me a small barn with good people who love to get together just to enjoy the ride! As for the condition of the horses... they are happy, healthy and just a bit spoiled! Like all other animals they have a wide range of personalities but that does NOT mean they are not trained. Not all horses are a good match for the person who can never advance beyond a trot....but please dont blame the horse.
Going to Tommy's is like going to a college party , the crowd is pretty cool to hang out with and is mostly young. But the really downside of this place is it's service. The waiter's are rude and also u have to wait a long time to actually flag down a waiter and place your order. They seem to behave as if they are doing us a mercy or something. Well we pay for our drinks!!! .
I started here when i was 3 and came back after spending $$$ all over lake county. This is the only barn that lets u bond with the horses and learn how to take care of the horses on your own. I am 23 and lease a horse from here who is wonderful. If your looking to become a better horseman or learn anything about horses this is the place to start and stay.
The other review is vs I would have done the same to that person... I also work in the industry so ignore the angry post from the girl that was on her period.... Great bar, great drinks , and great times !!
