I cant believe this is still going on after all of these months? The negative comments are a personal issue between former customers and the barn owner! Arbordale is a family orientated barn with great show success.It is very reasonable to

Pros: cheap, great cheap place to unload the kids.

Cons: great place to dump your kids if you don't actually own

This trainer has horses and riders ranked among the top in the nation, I go to the ranch and see beautiful and healthy horses. I see Mrs. Andrea work very had and very late to do what she does. She runs the barn and teaches lessons

Pros: lovely horses

Finally got out of there. This trainer is a manipulater at best. Always looking for someone else to blame for everything and never accepting responsibility for her own actions. I helped this woman by cleaning out 16 horrid stalls so she

Wow Andrea, shame on you. She was on partial board and living in Pinellas? And yes, you were asked not bring a certain hot horse back into academy classes. We even offered to provide you with the use of our academy horses if needed. I
