I've been riding there for many years and they have a fenominal lesson program! Gateway can transform any rider. And they just got some really nice new horses recently! You should come check them out! I would recommend any of there lesson instructors. Search gateway stables and give it a look!
Called to redeem my Living Social coupon. The lady on the phone was unpleasant and complained to me that they were overwhelmed with their response to the Living Social coupon and still had 800 people to try to fit in within the next 10 days. Gave me the number to someone else I had to call to book the ride and told to wait several days for her to even call me back. The lady called back several days later and said they will not honor their coupon unless we pay the additional amount for the regular trail ride price. What a bait and switch tactic. The kicker is, I was planning on booking towo extra rides at the regular price to take my children along. It was the business's choice to partake of the Living Social Coupon. It not the consumers fault if they have found it overwhelming. They should have at least had the common decency to honor their coupons for everyone that called to redeem them before it expired no matter how long it took the company to complete the rides.
Their horses are over worked and not properly tacked up. The ANGRY staff are rude and mean, making children cry.
.Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echos are truly endless.
Gateway is a one and done stable they are able to stay in business due to volumn but need a great deal of work on customer service and equine care.
We really enjoyed our ride at Gateway Stables. Our family trail rides all around the country when we go on vacation, but we are far from "experts". The barn at Gateway was very clean, the people were welcoming and the trail guides were attentive. The horses were very well mannered and seemed to enjoy their jobs. We will definitely come back when we are back in the area.
i love gateway i ride in lessons a few times a week and show and gateway fits my level of knowledge or any knowledge. the horses are great and the lesson teachers are great. the owner knows a lot but can be a little rude. But the barn offers many show oppoptunities. The horses are a little elderly but there always getting new horses. i love the trails and everyone knows each other and are willing to help. any age can ride and should ride at gateway
I've been taking lessons at Gateway for about 6 months and love it there. The horses are excellent - they have horses for all levels of riding. The owner is one of the most knowledgeable horsewomen I've ever met as well as an excellent instructor. Gateway is located in the middle of beautiful countryside, and there are miles of trails through woods and grassy fields. All of the horses are well cared for, and the owner is very safety consious. There are always seminars and special workshops offered on horse care or riding technique. It is a wonderful barn, and if I was lucky enough to own a horse, he would be living there!
While I will admit that the stables were beautiful and the horses looked amazing, the owner was the rudest person I have ever met. I went there looking for a stable that could give lessons to my pre schooler and possibly a place to board a pony for her and lease a horse for myself. I inquired about leasing and was told that she requires an intense examination of my riding ability and tried to throw around words that she thought I wouldn't know. I told her that I had formal lessons for years although I never competed in a show. She then told me that I was a back yard rider and that I wasn't suitable for her horses....without ever seeing me ride. I then tried to get back on the topic of my daughter taking lesson and she seemed to talk down on my daughter for not knowing anything about horses....SHE HASN'T EVEN STARTED PRE SCHOOL YET!!! Give the kid a break. When we called she said that we would be given a tour.....well our tour consisted of a fifteen foot walk from the office to the back door of the barn. After yelling at one of her staff to clean up the isle way she then pointed and told us the riding rings were up the road and that we could drive up there ourselves and look around. That is not a tour to me. So after a half an hour of her boasting about what amazing riders her and her daughter are and how much money she makes, we got into our car and drove straight home. I will not ever be going back to her again.
Everyone here was very nice and very safety conscious. They care about their horses and try to match you with a horse for your size and riding ability. We had lots of fun on the trail ride. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to ride. The trail ride was beautiful scenery and we got to go over all different types of terrain which made the ride very interesting
