I rode here for almost 1 year and ALL I did was learn how to trot bareback and a little bit of cantering. IT WAS ALL BAREBACK. I even asked my trainer if I ever would ride in a saddle and she flat out said "no! This is horsemanship, not the hunter jumper ring." Not to mention that you can't pet the horses... What the heck, I understand they are rescue horses but if they are nippy, TEACH THEM MANNERS. Oh and Robyn pretty much addressed new customers only, and their 10 or under children. My friend got pinned to a wall by one of the lesson horses and I was bucked off. I also didn't like that they did not trust you to fetch your own horse.Honestly, this barn will get you no where in the equestrian world.

Riding with Robyn Smith and ELS has been truly transformational. I started riding with Robyn after a fall that left me without confidence and no knowledge of how to repair my relationship with riding and my horse. Robyn gave me techniques and tools to use that boosted my confidence and made me feel safe. Just as important, she has taught me how horses behave and how to "read" them so I can see the world from their point of view. Understanding horse behavior and learning methods to communicate with my horse has made me the confident rider I always wanted to be. Robyn is able to focus on each rider's needs be it conquering fear, how to balance on a horse or even the beginning steps of how to approach a horse. Her program is fantastic. Go now!

We have been with Robyn since she started Equine Life Solutions. I feel so grateful to the person who recommended Robyn as a Trainer. The balanced riding she teaches is so effective for horse lover's of all ages. Robyn and her staff make sure that first and foremost all horse and human participants are safe and having fun. She also makes sure that all goals are realized. I have been very blessed that Blue and I have also found a very Happy wonderful barn family as an added bonus.

Robyn has a connection with horses that I strive to accomplish. When I met Robyn, I thought "I need to learn to ride horses". Simple huh? WOW. There is SO much more. It's about learning your body, learning from the horses, learning about life and yourself, in general. Being with and around the horses is an experience that has forever changed my life for the better. Horses are incredible, gentle, strong, animals and Robyn demonstrates, everyday, how, more than I ever thought possible, how wonderful a relationship with them can be, and is. I would send anyone and everyone I know, to ELS (Equine Life Solutions) and Robyn, anytime.

I really like that place. I would love to ride horses there. I would love to pet the horses there. I really want that place to always be there.

If you want a fun and safe environment to learn about horsemanship and to grow personally, ELS is THE place. Robyn and her herd of horses have changed my life for the better. I have been consistently riding at this barn for over three years and cannot imagine going elsewhere. I have grown in my riding skills, body awareness, and mind awareness under Robyn's instruction. The horses there - Zena, Jasmine, Robbin, just to name a few - have taught me the ultimate lessons about respect, forgiveness, and trust. I cannot thank them and Robyn enough for their time, patience, and kindness!

I was looking for a stable where my son could learn gentle horsemanship. I found Equine Life Solutions and have been so happy with this stable. Not only has my son been learning bitless balanced riding, but he has been learning leadership and is gaining confidence in the rest of his life. You may think that you are just going to learn to ride a horse, but really you will learn to overcome your fears, improve your posture and nurture a positive self esteem. I love the folks out at Equine Life Solutions-I would do anything for those guys! If you are looking for an amazing equine experience--this is the stable for you!

I have absolutely loved coming to ELS Stables, it has truly been the most exciting and fulfilling year and half of my life. I've made real connections at our barn, with both people and horses. Robyn really desires a 'community' feeling at ELS, and encourages us to use our strengths and even helps us to find them. If you are considering starting lessons, or looking for a barn that is taking a new and exciting approach to horsemanship, you need not look any further. The relationships that Robyn creates and fosters within her herd is natural, fun, and comfortable. Expect to learn so much more than just how to sit upon a horse's back, because there is so much more to know through the natural approach Robyn teaches her riders and horses. We'll welcome you because we know that you share the same love of horses, and we just can't wait to see what niche you'll create for yourself at the ELS community!
