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 away. The aisles seem like they are constantly being swept and the barn is well maintained. Something is always being improved. \r The training rides are great and easy to get. The pros are amazing riders that can fix most problems and make the horses go great. They are also experienced teachers who really know what they are doing. They treat their riders like adults and really work with them to help them get as good as they can be. Its not hard to see they really want to help you improve.\r At shows, Switch Willo always takes home tons of ribbons. At the local shows, Switch Willo normally cleans up most of the divisions, and at the bigger rated shows there is always a group of great horses bringing home championships. \r There is a great group of kids and adults at Switch Willo. Whatever your age, there will be a great group of people to get to know. The people at this barn are incredibly friendly and really seem to be open to meeting new people and making new friends. There aren't problems with competitiveness and cattiness and this barn.\r The school horses are INCREDIBLE. I wish I grew up riding these horses! I am so impressed at how well behaved and responsive these horses are. I have seen the care that goes into them and the result, and it is really impressive to see so much effort go into the care of the school horses. They all seem happy and healthy and willing to perform their job. \r The camp at Switch Willo is also awesome. The pool is a great addition in the hot weather and the kids always seem to have fun at the horseshow at the end of the week.
