Awesome!!

This is a very good expierenced barn that teaches you how to groom,tack and ride the horse. The instructors are very good teachers and are as good as grand prix! The lessons are fun and the teachers make sure you improve multiple things during the lesson! The students are very polite and always include eachother. The horses get turned out probably every day in the summer and always groomed.

worst barn atmostphere

This is a barn I have very mixed feelings about. I am surprised to see such positive feedback. I rode there for over ten years, and when I left, I kicked myself for not leaving sooner. AVH is a great rider, sometimes a good teacher... but on other's horses I would see her be quite crewel, and with her clients downright rude. AVH is one of the most awful people I have ever met. Students would refer to themselves as her slaves; she never asked you to do something, you were told. Good luck getting anything back that you put in, as far as duties around the barn. The way she would argue (regularly) in-front of clients with her parents or sister was embarrassing. I won't even discuss her horrible nature towards Bill the stablehand, who loved the horses more than their owners. In my opinion, if you like to be tortured, you like tough love and you want to be put to work every time you step onto the property, ride here. Or, if you have a child that won't behave and they need discipline, Vogt is a good place. Otherwise, drive a little further to friendly horse people who will let you ride bareback, or get out of the ring and do what real horse people do. (all the horses are ring sour and get very little turnout)

Great riding academy, very friendly

I've been riding for many years but once I came here to 'touch-up' my jumping skills I realized how much more this barn could offer. I was a bit intimidated to be in mixed classes with many different age groups but the instructors really individualize their lessons to help you. If you ask for help and have a positive attitude you will go very far here. It is very rigorous which I loved as I was trying to get in better shape for an equestrian team in college. The focus is all about your form and a dressage base. The jumping classes are focused mainly on core strengthening and positioning not on the height of the jumps which, I belive, is way better for you in the long run.

great riding facility

This is absolutely the BEST riding facility. The children are immediately made to feel welcome and included. They are expected to help with the chores (a big plus) and given many opportunities to learn about horse care each week. The teachers are focused and give needed criticism to improve. I can't thank the teachers and owner enough!
