This barn has a relaxed atmosphere, a kind staff and calm and caring horses that even beginners can ride. Nothing better than a trail ride through the blue hills! This barn is not a showbarn, but it is welcoming and filled with creatures for kids to see. Even pony rides for the smaller set. I loved it!
What a sad, sorry place for these horses to live. I wonder how you can have so many horses in such a small area? The paddocks are like prison cells. I walked around looking at these poor animals without water or hay. There was a group of women sitting at a table drinking wine (mid-afternoon) & I wanted to tell them to get off their fat asses & take care of the horses. I would never give this place my business. PETA should know about this......

I have a good judgment when it comes to this sport .
This place is full of good horses and medium range as well.
The owner Amy is an example of a ""good hearted american values"" best you can get. You are treated at home . Ask for her and life would smile at you !!!
No matter how old or what level you are, you will be treated so especial. Don't listen to the nasty comments of others .
Don't miss on the opportunity to visit and enjoy. I say this with confidence if you want fancy then try Myopia in Hamilton. I know both and I recommend both .
Enjoy my friends

Can anyone help me? I am a horse that lives at Blazing Saddles in Randolph, Ma. I am forced to live outside in terrible conditions with no fresh hay, water or shelter. At night I sleep in my own manure & urine. If it is 100 degrees in summer or a Nor'easter snowstorm, I will be outside in the elements. Don't believe me? Stop by 384 High Street in Randolph and see for yourself!

I had a lesson with Aimee/Amy today, the owner. She never even showed up!! She had a friend come out to tell me she was a ""no-show"" because she ""had an emergency."" When asked why she couldn't call me to let me know, her friend told me ""her phone screen was cracked, so she couldn't see the numbers of people who were calling her.""
Totally b.s. Horrible customer service!!
In addition to the horrible customer service, the place is DISGUSTING. There are dirty stalls that never look like they are cleaned out. The place is not well maintained AT ALL. Everything is dirty and gross. The horses like so unhappy. Their ribs are showing, and it looks like someone needs to call the humane society. Very unhygienic place to ride. I wouldn't trust this place for a lesson or with my horse at ALL. Place is a COMPLETE dump, and I'm not surprised the lessons are so cheap. You get HORRENDOUS service for the cheap price.
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS if you value hygiene and your safety. God knows how well behaved those poor and malnourished horses are.
I will start by saying I wish I could give no stars to this place at all. The only people there that aren't rude are a select few of the boaders; all the voulenters have a "know-it-all" attitude when they realll practically know nothing. One girl there diliah thinks she runs the barn gives out lessons. I asked her her level of riding and she said she doesn't really know, shes been mostly getting little lessons here and there and holding on. Even I know more than her and shes been doing this longer than me. I will say amy is really nice and sweet though. I used to think the stalls weren't that bad until I went to a different barn. Their stalls and paddock are disgusting and need futher care than they're are givin. The water buckets are as well disgusting. There is practically no grass to graze on ether. They exhaust there horses to the point of collapsion and then continue to ride them out with water or a break. I have went there for around three years and regret it fully!!! I have came to my aunts barn and realized want clean actually is. And clean is not this place. Unless you want your horse to become lame, very ill, or even drop dead, DON'T COME HERE!! It's neighbor harmony hill is a FAR better choice!

I have been searching for a place to board my horse near Newton and came across Blazing Saddles, I was so excited to see that there was a somewhat close stable with a inexpensive board rate. I drove out with my dad and we traveled up and down high street and could not find the place then finally saw a sign and pulled in to the drive and it was a small beat up farm. It seriously looks like a abandoned farm, there was a group of people sitting around riding dirt bikes or something like that and they were very rude. The barn is disgusting and not a good place for horses to be. My dad and I ran before anyone else stopped us and we have no intentions of going back. This place should be shut down unless they can maintain it properly and care for the animals on the property the right way.

I want to start off by saying this is not the worst place in the world, but pretty close to it. I went there for a summer camp in 08. Though it was very inexpensive, (only $150 for five days and three hours a day) it had very diry stables, the people there were not very nice, and, though i always saw food and hay in the area, there was never any in the stalls. After we went on trail rides i would volenteer to get the horses some water but every day i got the same responce, they got some this morning. THE TRAIL RIDES WERE MORE THAN AN HOUR LONG!!! HOW COULD THEY NOT BE THIRSTY? They also had very limited facilities, for example, if you had to use the bathroom, THEY DIDN'T HAVE ONE they told us if we had to go, go in one of the stalls! Also, they were not a very safe place. THe girl i was put with in camp was very young and agitated the horses. Of course the volenteers said it was fine, as long as no one was getting hurt. Well, that,'no one's getting hurt' was incorrect on the last day when i was riding bare-back and the little girl was shouting so loud at a duck walking by that my horse, the sweet old Dallas, bucked me off. When i asked to get back on they said no because I had scared Dallas. ME! The good parts of this expirience was,one, Amy. She was very nice and supportive. Also, the trails were fun, although they needed to be cleaned. My advise to any parent who wants to sighn there kid up is, don't. My advise to any adult who wants to sighn up, don't. My addvise to anyone that works at this stables and is reading this, I hope you can find another job because, unless you can take better care of these animals, including the cats who were skinny and dirty, you are going to get everything taken away from you. I hope this gives some helpful information to some peole.

ok so first of all, i have been going to this barn for about a year and a half now, and i think i would have noticed by now if there was something wrong with it. nope, nothing wrong! the horses are friendly and healthy, and the trails are awesome. i would recommend it to anybody.

I have been to blazing saddles many times with my 2 year old daughter. This place is great for kids and adults. They have someof the most beautiful horses around. I even hired Amy to bring 2 horses/ ponies to my daughters birthday party in Weymouth. The kids loved it and the service I got was ophenomenal. She brought me 2 handlers so the parents didn't have to worry about walking with their kids so they could take pictures. Shop around because you will not get the prices that Amy gives for trail riding. lessons or pony parties. She is by far the best. I can't wiat til my daughter startds her riding lessons there.

Blazing Saddles is the best place in the whole world. I think that their service and consideration is great. I don't know what all of those goons are talking about when they say this place is horrible. Amy is so kind and generous and she is a great rider. All of the horses are not over of under fed. Also they are not over worked. The trail rides here are at exceptable prices and and so is the summer caps here too! You should definatly come to Blazing Saddles Equestrian Center in Randolph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been a boarder at Blazing Saddles for I want to say at least 7 months now. My horse is completely happy and extremely well taking care of. Amy is an amazing rider. I actually read one of these reviews that said that she is a ""wanna be rider"". Well my dear no ""wanna be rider"" would be an exerciser for thoroughbreds on a race track. That was just a completely rude comment. Also I read that the people there that are happy are riders who do not know anything about horses. I have been raised with horses since I was 4 and have actively owned, shown and provided care since I was 7. That being said I do believe I know quite a bit about horses. As far as seeing ""bones sticking out of horses"" I never see a bone on any of these horses unless they are 35 years old and in that case it is enviable. Blazing Saddles is a barn that I would describe as a relaxed back barn. Reasoning being is because that it lacks the stuffiness and snobbery of many other barns that I have encountered. Everyone there is extremely friendly and extremely helpful. I also highly recommend the pony rides. They are done safely on friendly horses and be very knowledgeable horse people. Lastly, the trails rock and I am very polite to any other rider , walker, biker, jogger on the trails.

This place is a bunch of yahoos. Do NOT bring your kids there for lessons. Do NOT board your horses there. Avoid them on the trails. The place is gross, there is no regard for safety, and the owner is about as stable as the New England weather. There are lots of great options in the area. The only people that end up here for any length of time are those that know nothing about horses and fall for the spiel of the owner. Kids love it because they can do anything they want, no holds barred. Anyone with any horse sense will walk away after one quick look around.

The Place is to small for that many horses. I have drove past the place in the winter and horses would be tied out side. Amy can not ride a pickle barrow nailed to the floor she is a wanna be horse rider. Wasn't it at her place first year she opened a rider was well RIP. Not only that but her riders are very inconsiderate to others on the trails. Her place is Mucky and nasty. Also the horses are not well cared for at all. She should be shut down and have all her horses taken from her. THAT PLACE IS NASTY It is worst then the Paddocks Stables that use to be in Milton....... And I hate to say it but there are very few good stables left in that area thats why I moved my horses down to Taunton Area cheaper board BUT WAAAAAY better facilities.
And Personally Amys lesson students Cant ride for nothing they look like over weight monkeys on rocking horse.

After being a boarder for a year and seeing everything that went on I would never recommend Blazing saddles. Stalls were nasty, horses were not always well cared for. The kids that ride there think it's great because they don't know better. The owner has a real knack for charming the kids. There were three horses that died in a year from inproper care. Most of the horses were well fed but with poor quality feed. I could go on and on. I am glad I moved!
