Always a Pleasure to visit this Treasure! – What a great place to ride and learn! It is obvious that the people at TES love what they do, they adore their horses and must at least like people a lot too! From the old to the young, their doors are open to people of all ages. They obviously take pride in what they do and it shows!
There is no limit to what they can do for any rider from the beginners to the Masters and it is done with a caring spirit!
My chances to ride are few and far between, but it is worth a trip from the East Coast to visit TES. The treatment is great and the experience a pleasure! Highly recommend to one and all - you just can't go wrong!
Great horses and trainers – I'd ridden on and off since I was a kid, but had been "off" for a number of years when I went to TES. And, it's not quite as easy getting on a horse and having everything "come back" like it is on a bicycle. The trainers are great. Patient, knowledgeable and they make the time spent there fun. You get a horse that's fresh and suited to your ability. This is the best place in L.A. to learn to ride.
Great School, Beautiful Horses, Good Times! – I look forward to my lessons at TES. The instructors and staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the horses are always a joy to ride!
I've been riding here for the past two years and have been learning so much...
The best place to learn to ride in LA! – This is the best place around to learn to ride, whether you're a beginner or an advanced student, whether you're 6 or 60! The instructors are sensitive to your abilities and are able to take you to the next level of training. But don't grow too attached to those fabulous school horses!!!
TES is the best! – I have been riding at TES for around four years now and consider myself so lucky to have found it on-line. I started riding 18 years ago and have been a part of different barns all over California - TES is by far my favorite. Their program is excellent for people of all ages and levels of riding including those who have never been on a horse before. They offer classes in hunter/jumper, dressage, western - they even have a fun drill team and a bareback class! Their variety of horses and ponies is unbeatable, I currently am in love with about 5 of them. The staff and working students couldn't be more wonderful - they are always very helpful, friendly and understanding. I have found that TES really goes above and beyond any other barn I've ridden at by offering schooling shows to people of all levels, fun game days, day camp for youngsters, lots of clinics and great lectures. The staff is extremely dedicated to their client's education and understanding of all things horses. I'm extremely grateful for this amazing barn, it's a second home to me!
Great people and Great horses – As an adult, I am a little different demographic for the usual equestrian student, but no one at TES has ever made me feel that way.
My instructor has taken the time to get to know how I learn, and has utilized it. I am progressing at my own pace, and loving every minute of it.
The people that work at TES are so friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to work with you, it seems like a family.
My favorite part about this school is how they teach you ALL aspects of horsemanship. I didn't want a pre-made horse waiting for me, all tacked up and ready to go.
I feel like the experience I get with my school horse every week before and after my lesson when I groom and tack the horse, makes my entire time there so much more interesting, valuable, and fun. As a newbie, it has given me the opportunity to learn horse behavior that I was never aware of before. Such amazing animals....
I recommend this school to anyone looking to learn how to ride. You'll get what you pay for.
THE Place to Learn and Ride in L.A. – My daughter and I have ridden at four different schools over the last 20 years. None come close to the experience and professionalism of Tradional Equitation School aka T.E.S.
T.E.S. caters to adults and kids and has horses and instructors for every level of western, dressage, hunt/jump, and just all round pleasurable riding. They have a great number of superb horses at all different levels. We've done a "lesson lease" program for the last 18 months through which my eleven year old can build a bond with "her" horse without the full complexity of us owning a horse - yet.
The instructors are all fun, yet serious, and excellent riders themselves. There are frequent competitions, games, and challenges. And as T.E.S.'s literature will tell you, they are the only BHS certified riding school in the area.
T.E.S. has basically become our home and we can't think of a better place to be. The staff are courteous, flexible, understanding, and knowledgable...and the horses, the horses are of course what's it's all about and they're lovely!
If you live anywhere within a 30 mile radius of the Burbank Equestrian Center and really enjoy riding, I wouldn't bother with going anywhere else...
I love this place! The people and horses are all so great. There are tons of horses to choose from, so you can never run out. There is lots of student tack in case you don't own any and everything is super organized. My lessons are so fun and are the best part of my week. the instructors are really nice and just care about the rider's safety and comfort. There are always numerous volunteers around to help you with whatever you need and the best thing of all... is that there is a mechanical horse named Amerika that is kept in an air conditioned room that students can ride on occasion when it is too hot outside! This place has it all and is a great place to learn!
Horseback Riding in Los Angeles – I wanted to get into horseback riding again and went to the Traditional Equitation School barn at the LA Equestrian center, adjacent to Griffith Park. I live in West Hollywood and the location is easy to get to and convenient. The teachers are helpful, patient and helped me to feel more safe. I feel more confident because I have been able to work past fears and do things that I did not think were possible. Just about all the ponies can be ridden either English or Western and many of them jump and can be ridden on trails. I have had an amazing experience and would recommend it to all ages.
The ART of RIDING – Upon entering the gates of the Los Angeles Equestrian Center leading to the Traditional Equitation School, (TES), one is immediately welcomed into the mystical and magical world of the horse and all its glory. From the novice rider who has never been on a horse to the skilled dressage masters, TES offers a vast array of equestrian disciplines taught by a faculty of hip, accomplished instructors who work passionaltely with students to guide them in attaining their personal riding goals.
Chris Cervantes, a masterful teacher, has done a stellar job of transposing my fears and insecurities into solid self confidence- gently, yet firmly guiding my quest to manifest the art of riding.
TES is founded on the basic principles of safety first for both the rider and the horse. The school is very well organized and extremely well managed with a crew of conscientious and professional office staff, instructors, stable hands and working students.
For anyone who is interested in learning to ride or in improving their equestrian disciplines and techniques, I would highly recommend The Traditional Equitation School.
