I rode at this barn for 6 years, at first it was a second home and the best place I had been. However, as more kids came, the trainer, Leah, played favorites and made it know to everyone who rode there who she liked and who she didn t. If you don t want your children to pick up bad habits, don t send them here. All of the staff (YOUNG teenagers and college students) have horrible mouths every five seconds you ll here a swear coming out of their mouth. My favorite horse went for sale there and I bought him and moved him to another barn when i did blood work he was on over 3 pages of medications he was on that no one told me about. The girls are also very clicky If you want you or your child to have a good riding experience in the long run I don t suggest you send them to jha riding academy because there have been times where i have come home crying because of the teemagers being horrible to me. There horses are also not safe and they drill their lesson horses into the ground till they can t work anymore. DO NOT RIDE HERE! the trainers also are VERY irresponsible. they do not care about you or your child they only care about making money

Where to begin! Well I will start by saying that all the commenters that said JHA was a terrible place are wrong. They didnt give it a chance! Those people just got the wrong impression and are way to serious. JHA is a fun, relaxed environment. I rode at After Hours and hated it! I came to JHA and my riding skills are WAY better! The instructor has gotten Best Instructor Award for 2-3 years in row, of 2010. (MORE TO COME!) The horses are wonderful and you are matched perfectly. JHA is a young environment that keeps things fun and entertaining. If your not riding you're hanging around with everyone else, having a blast! If you're someone whos bossy,ovecontrolling, and doesnt like to have fun.... JHA may be too awesome for you! Just have a good time and believe me your riding skills will improve GREATLY! thankssss <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

OMG, i cannot see how people can say something bad about JHA. its the best place ever for boys, girl, adults, childeren. being a teenager riding there i love it !!!!! ♥♥♥♥ & by the way i rode during an adult lesson (not in it just during it) & they DO NOT treat adults like 13 year olds !!!!! its a great family stable, & the horses & other animals are treated wonderful! & yeah by the way animals like humans tend to get sick once in a while ! its okay its normal! the horse just like the owners & workers are really nice. the horses are wonderful to ride too! its a very safe barn & the sand is soft incase you do fall. so if uwant to take your child mom dad or anyone to ride, bored, or lease from a GREAT, WONDERFUL, SAFE, FUN, TRUSTWORTHY stable JHA is the place to go. & i'll nvr wish to leave. ♥♥♥♥

Pros: hello it rox !!!!!!!!

As an adult and a parent, I find JHA both enjoyable and educational for not only myself but for my daughter as well. The barn upkeep is always at its best. The tack rooms are in order and it is very easy to find everything you need in order to tack each horse. The ground in the rink is soft and is good for an easy fall. As in every sport that you do there is the possibility of an injury, however, they take every precaution and safety is first. The girls there taught my 7 year old daughter how to bring in her own horse from the paddocks and tack the horse all by herself. They taught her the importance of picking the hooves and brushing out the horse thoroughly. They not only taught her but refreshed my recollection since it had been over 15 years since I had been on a horse let along tack one. They show the children it is not easy to ride a horse and it takes work and determination. My daughter was shy and held back speaking to anyone I introduce her to. At the barn she was around so many children not only her age but older who were willing to take her under their wing and help her come out of her shell. The horses are loved and well taken care of. Each horse has their own personality and each barn owner knows each horse?s unique needs. The lessons range from beginner to advanced. The lessons are well priced and each rider gets the individual attention he or she needs in order to get the best experience. I would definitely recommend these stables not only for boarding but for a parent to a child who is interested in general in horses and who are interested in riding horses. They welcome all ages, even the adult beginner, as I am.

Cons: parking can be tough if it is a busy night or day.

This barn is absolutley amazing. The lessons are so well priced and the group lessons are a blast. You get to be with all your freinds and it really feels like a family there. All the JHA girls are so nice and happy to be there. The owners are great and are always adding things to make the barn look so nice. The horses are so nice and pleasent to ride. The levels of riders there range from beginner to the best out there at the shows. And everything in between. The borders there are so nice too. i just loved everything about this barn. i loved the expirence and hope to stay there for as long as i ride horses. i even hope to bord my own horse there.

This barn is alot of fun. Lessons are exceptional & always alot of fun. They have instruction for every level of riding. From young riders who do beginners/short stirrup to junior & adult riders interested in the bigger jumper classes to the rider who likes to ride for pleasure & wants to be safe on their mount.
They are serious about top notch instruction without being "stuffy".
The owners like to see everyone in their barn succeed & are willing to help their trainers by making sure they have appropriate horses/ponies for their lesson program.
I've been riding for over 20 years & have shown @ many barns both locally & out of town & this is a nice, well maintained facility for the price. The owner is always doing work on the facility.
You should come check out our facility!!

Pros: Excellent instruction & nice safe horses

The instruction is not correct and taught my a lazy instructor. Horses are worked to the bone. adults are treated like a 13 year old teenager.
