I have been riding at East Cobb Stables for almost 4 years now, and it's been such an amazing place to be! I've volunteered here for as long as I've takin' lessons, and I love it. Everyone's wonderful, and welcoming and just being there you can feel the happiness! The horses are the sweetest horses you will ever meet! Some are rescues that have been taken in and are now sweet, trusting lesson horses. The trainers are helpful, happy, and never pressure to do something you are uncomfortable with, different people go at their own speeds. The horses always have the best of care, and are always treated with the most respect.
East Cobb Stables is a wonderful, happy, and safe place to be.

Whoever has said anything negative about this place is out of their mind. East Cobb Stables is a place where young or older people can connect to the wonderful world of horses. The owners give everything they have to those horses, and I have never seen such love and care put into a facility like that in my lifetime. Those horses are loved and cherished like they are the owner's children. They provide wonderful experiences to connect with a wonderful and graceful animal. The instructors know everything there is to know about horses, and if there is ever even a slightest doubt about the horse's health, care is provided immediately. The owners and workers take so much time to cater to the horses personal needs to ensure that they live a wonderful and long life. I have never seen so much love, care, and friendship put into a business like that in my entire life. I can't begin to tell you how much this place has changed my life.

I have been associated with East Cobb Stables for 10 years. East Cobb Stables is a breath of fresh air in Cobb County. In the midst of high traffic, endless shopping centers, and busy city life is a place for adults and children to enjoy and appreciate the love of a horse. These horses receive expert care by adults who are extremely experienced and knowledgable. They have taken horses discarded by their owners and transformed them into gentle lesson horses, ridden by people of all ages. I highly recommend East Cobb Stables to anyone interested in learning to care for and ride horses. The owners live on site and welcome visitors and volunteers to share in the love of these beautiful animals. It is a barn in the heart of East Cobb (the city) therefore extra work and care is necessary for these horses to thrive. The dedication of the owners and volunteers at East Cobb Stables is amazing and these horses are thriving and bringing joy to many.

These reviews are a joke! As a former student, leaser, stall cleaner and feeder I have to say that ECS was great at first but not long after turned into a unsafe, unsanitary for clients and for horses.Yes it is a barn and there is dirt but thats not the problem. All the barn(s), stall(s), office, tack room(s) etc are completely rat and ant infested. Tack is constantly bit up and smells of urine and poop. You walk into the barn and can smell the urine. Ants line up in rows and rows marching everywhere! The lessons and so called board are OVER priced. $50 dollars for a 30 min lesson, not worth it becasue 30mins is the proper warm up time for a horse. Board is a joke since its 500+ for full board and partial or pasutre board is not offered. Yes they are fed 2x a day but they are not always fed in their stalls and that means that they are fed with other horses turned out on a dirt and rocky paddock with barely enough room and they are not always getting their full portions. Now for some misled students at ECS that posted a review that grass for a horse is BAD or was told that some of those horses have a grass issue, just know that who ever told you those horses should not have grass lied to you, grass is NEVER bad but can be risky only when you put a horse who is not use to grass on to large grassy pastures or on RICH grass and so that's why you introduce them in moderation to prevent colic or foundering issues but it is NEVER bad. And non of those horses were rescued except for 1, the others were all purchased or traded for. If you'd do research you'd see that providing long-stemmed forages increases the amount of time spent eating, increases saliva flow, and reduces the level of boredom and associated behavioral problems. Horses evolved in a grazing environment and their digestive systems can accommodate large quantities of roughage. Although horses can consume large quantities of concentrates, including long-stemmed forage in the diet slows the overall rate of passage and increases dry matter and water intake. A minimum of 1.0 percent body weight of roughage (pasture, hay, or other forage) should be offered daily to ensure adequate intake and digestive health. The use of long-stemmed forage in the diet may also help prevent or curtail other management problems such as tail chewing, wood chewing, and coprophagy (feeding on fecal material). I admit that alot of what I was told at that barn when I was there I once believed, but once my horse and I were out i have never had any health issues or weight issues or colic issues again and I have learned it was ALL lies to save their butts. The owners live on site yes, but they are NO WHERE to be found at the barn and are hard to get a hold of. The barn and feedings and camp are all run by children. The owners and trainers smoke like freight trains everywhere. Birthday parties, pony rides and lessons are all poorly organized. This barn either needs major help and new managment or to be shut down and the horses rescued.

I highly recommend East Cobb Stables for horse loving people. If you can not afford owning your own horse and want an education on horses ie: grooming, tacking, riding, showing... the possibilities are endless. The owners are on site and welcome volunteerism from the lesson riders... My daughter spent every available minute of her junior and senior high school years at East Cobb Stables as did many of her life long friends working and learning and making straight a's. Camp outs, sleep overs, ribbons, showing, beautiful horses, so much fun and tradition...and beautiful young ladies. My daughter now rides for a University team as do several of the riders from East Cobb Stables past and present. Right in the heart of East Cobb a small beautiful working barn. $50 per lesson is a small price to pay for the education available....All of the lesson horses have won championships and have been rescued and rehabilitated by the owners, trainers and lesson riders. It is truly a beautiful barn and a wonderful education opportunity....Highly recommend!!!

Take it from a former barn girl: East Cobb Stables is unorganized, overpriced, and uncleanly.
Yes, it is a barn, Yes, there will be dirt and crap and pests, but East Cobb Stables is uncleanly to the point of disaster.
The broken plastic chairs for spectators aren't kept clean, if you want to sit, you have to dust off the ants, hay, and rat poop.
The pavillion isn't clean, again, the chairs, the rat poop on the table, the standing water, crusty mud, and lines of ants are a major issue.
The tack room is coated with dust and cobwebs, the floor is for all intents of purposes, dirt, spiderwebs are in every nook and cranny. Even the lightbulb is coated in some kind of... crap, and missing door handles are commonplace for months at a time.
Stalls are kept satisfactory for horses, even though broken stall doors that must be lifted and forced are everywhere. However, your horse may not be the only one in the stall, in my years there, dead rats were often found outside and inside of stalls, and once even in a horse's water bucket.
Rats. Ants. Everywhere. Lines of ants control the barn. You can't put a hand on a rail without having to brush aside an ant. You can forget about sitting down anywhere without having to deal with ants or rat poop. Rats as well are a major problem, in water troughs, stalls, walkways, everywhere. People would often get frustrated during my time at the barn because rats were able to get INTO their locker, and eat everything they could find. Treats, snacks, the leather off of the saddle. People had to deal with holes in their tack because of the rats being able to get into LOCKED lockers.
The owner and organization is a MAJOR problem.
In my years at the barn, trainers left the state without warning, lessons were pushed back and rescheduled without notification of the student, and you would be accepted to sit sometimes for hours at a time to wait for your trainer to be able to take you, and not complain, because everyone is a "family".
Barn shows were a disaster as well, horses and competitions would sometimes not even be set the day before, when all participants are expected to work two hours in order to compete. Money is taken before any of this is decided, and I personally went through an experience where I turned in my check, worked all day, only to be told that I wouldn't be able to ride before the show because the horse had "already been overworked" that day.
There is no organization WHATSOEVER, and the owner is extremely sketchy. Mood swings and frequent smokes in the barn are to be expected from not only the owner but the trainers as well. Smoking in a barn, with all the dry hay and dust is a major risk, and barn fires have taken place at other locations because of smoking, but the nicotine clearly takes priority over the safety of the horses and boarders to the staff at ECS.
THE POSITIVE: Everyone at ECS is a family.
Yes, that's the only positive, but the MAJOR NEGATIVE that comes with that, is that because they call you a family and hug you, smile at you, and take your money, is that you're expected to take all of the crap that comes with ECS.
If you've already payed your trainer, but can't ride because they double booked, you're supposed to just take it because you're "family".
If the stalls need mucking, and everyone else is busy smoking, you're expected to muck, because you're all a "family".
If you already payed but have no information about a show, it's fine because you're a "family".
If you have to stand for an hour during your child's lesson because all of the chairs are broken, don't blame Amy for not getting new chairs, we're all a "family".
The only people OK with the way things go on at ECS are people who are fine with unsanitary, substandard, unorganized conditions. But they can pressure you into just accepting anything, because you're all a "family".
EVERY BARN IS NOT LIKE THIS. EVERY BARN IS NOT THIS DIRTY. EVERY BARN IS NOT THIS UNORGANIZED. EVERY BARN IS NOT THIS UNKEMPT.
I would not recommend ECS to anyone. Period. Bottom Line. End.Of.Story.

DO NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE WHO SAYS ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THIS PLACE! especially that stupid Britney person. She is lying. This is a good old fasioned barn with great sprit and love. SHE IS THE ONE WHO IS LYING. she is trying to throw you off.
here is the true story.
I first rode here for my 4th birthday party, came back for lessons and ages 5,6,7,8,10,11,12,13,14 and 15. everyone is one, big, happy family! no one is mean, the instructors were amazing and very nice, the barn owner, Amy, is so nice and loves the horses to death! i have ridden and been a summer camp councilor and i go there whenever i can.
There are 4 huge pastures that are cleaned regularly. Yes, there is no grass, but that is good because to much grass is BAD for these RESCUE horses and these have grass "issues". The horses are fed 2 daily, rain or shine, no matter the weather.
Kids build character and a love for horses while here and would love it.
there are currently a ton of horses here. one of which is MY horse Destiny who is a rescue <3 i have learned so much from my trainer and amy the barn owner. i LOVE both of them to death and they have taught me everything there is to know about her and the others from injuries to feeding everything.
People say that it is dirty and expensive. Well< HELLO?< its a BARN! of course there is going to be dirt! and Have you ever tried running a barn with almost 20 horses? No i don't think so. Yes its going to be expensive but its totally worth it.
The horses are fed, groomed and loved every day.
The barn offers lessons along with Barn shows every month for awards and ribbons, and once you are skilled enough, they offer "away" shows or real compositions at other barns. There is a show team.
If you are looking for a local family owned barn, i dont understand why you would choose any where but here......
Also, this is an OUTDOOR, WARM, AND DRY place, its not rodant INFESTED but there are rats. They are terifyed of humans and dont bother us.There is an extermanator who comes out 2-3 times a year.
For Birthday party pony rides, Only 5 horses at the barn are ponies and only 4 of them is a "pony-ride'' horse. Yes, the kids are not allowed to exit the party area beacuse they are LITTLE kids who know nothing about horses! We dont want them to scare the horses and injure them! the party area is about to be redone beacuse it is old. The was a leak, but it has been fixed.
this is where my hbr roots are. i learned to ride here. I am now on my High School Equestrian team which is at a different barn but i still go to ecs and ride twice a week. i will always and FOREVER love this magnificent barn
Hope it was helpful! <3

I've been riding at East Cobb Stables for about 2 1/2 years. It isn't the nicest barn on earth, but the owner loves her horses to death and would do anything for them. The instructors are hilarious and they are wonderful teachers. The horses are very well taken care of, and they each have VERY different personalities.
The owner rescues most of her horses. One of the most amazing stories of ECS is the horse Aspen.
When he was rescued, he weighed only around 600 pounds. The vet said there was no chance he could ever make it. Amy adopted him, and today he's an adorable, quirky, 1500 pound sweetheart. He's a gorgeous gray dapple and is always playing around.
If you're looking for a great place to get lessons or board/lease a horse, ECS is the place to go

We have been at ECS for years and I can't imagine being anywhere else. We know many other barns and this is where we choose to be. Those of us that have been there know what family is and know what friendship is. We aren't looking for an expensive plush atmosphere. We'd rather be in an environment that the kids and adults are friends and the owners care for the horses. Plush does not equal great. Is ECS plush - absolutely not, but the owners and boarders care about each other and care about the horses and the instructors are great. If you are looking for a family to join come on out.

i've been riding at east cobb stables for 7 years and i have never thought of leaving. it has an at home feel and is perfect for a just starting beginner or an advanced rider. at ecs the owner gives you the opportunity to create a bond with the horses and learn to love and care for them. at other stables its all about competing and money, but here its all about the horses and the children. ecs does compete at shows and every show is a new learning experience for both horse and rider. as a member of the show team i would recommend east cobb to both the competitive rider and to people who want their children to experience a horse farm in the middle of marietta. each and every horse teaches the rider a lesson on how to ride, and the instructors are professional and give one-on-one lessons to connect with the rider. east cobb may be a small facility, but the owner, instructor, and riders there make up for its size. so i would recommend east cobb stables to all horse lovers.

Dirty, unkept, rodent infested, poorly managed, unfit facility for horses. We first did a pony ride and then ended back here for a birhday party, both experiences were bad. I would not recommend East Cobb Stables.

I've been at ECS for about a year and I haven't had one bad experience. The owner and trainers there are very willing to teach and help you. Although it isn't the state of the art facility, the horses there are treated with amazing tlc.

I've been at ECS for about a year and I haven't had one bad experience. The owner and trainers there are very willing to teach and help you. Although it isn't the state of the art facility, the horses there are treated with amazing tlc.

We have had our horse for 12 years and started boarding at ECS. It has a great location, because of it's location and size it doesn't have grassy pastures so we moved our horse to other facilities which were newer, prettier, with all the grass your horse would want... we are back at ECS because the pretty stall and grassy pastures don't hold a candle to the people who love the horses and take wonderful care of them. You can't beat the love and care at ECS. Owners live on the property and are there 7 days a week- you never have to worry about whether your animal is being cared for. The owners aren't in it for the money, and that's why there are no frills. You can drop your children off and know that they are being well trained in the art of horsemanship and you never have to worry about their safety. Our tip is if you want to be involved with your horse, the owners are very accommodating, it's not one size fits all at ECS. They produce great Hunters and Jumpers. If your uptight and formal and more interested in yourself and not the horse- it's not the place for you. We have seen some people leave but most all of them have come back.

As a former boarder I can tell you that your horse will receive excellent & loving care at this facility, I only left because we moved out of state. While there my horse was well taken care of, I received excellent lessons both with my mare and on other horses and felt very much a part of the family. Also while there I witnessed many wonderful birthday parties, complete with pony rides. Wonderful family atmosphere. Reasonable board, reasonable & respectful owners.

Hi - I just had my daughter's 5th birthday party at East Cobb Stables. It was a BLAST! And it even rained almost the entire party. We had 20 kids. I highly recommend the package deal. There were 2 beautiful horses that the kids rode - and the kids got to ride as many times as they wanted to. We also had the cotton candy machine, spin art station and a huge moonwalk. I brought my bubble machine...and each kid got a cowboy hat and bandana. For those who give bad reviews saying the place is muddy...what do you expect - it's a horse stable! And it is the perfect setting for a birthday party. We will definitely be back. Thank you East Cobb Stables!

i've boarded my horse at east cobb stables before and let me tell you... you pay way to much money for nothing. you pay just to keep your horse in a muddy pasture that doesn't even get cleaned and the only thing that gets done for your horse is get fed. it's rediculous. the owner is very rude and in my opinion shouldn't rob people for their money. although there is one up side to the place... the other boarder and trainers there are extremely nice and made me feel right at home. so... if you're looking for a place to rob you of your money then east cobb stables is a place to go but on the other hand if you're looking for a nice little family friendly barn then i'd check the place out. (however...i would not recommend their boarding if you do attend the place.)

It was our daughter??s seventh birthday. East Cobb Stables was not prepared when we arrived despite re-confirming two days prior (rain or shine). The children had nothing to do while the horse (singular) was saddled (approximately 30 minutes of the two hour party) and the children were not allowed to leave the pavilion.

The pavilion was filthy and unsanitary with bags of horse bedding stacked in the food serving area along with standing rain water on the serving counter, table and chairs. The tables and chair were dirty and there was no help cleaning. This was not a ??hosted?? event.

The single horse and handler for ten children was not enough. The handler was unable to manage the horse while helping the child mount the horse and a parent had to be pulled away from corralling the other children in the pavilion to help. In desperation to give the children something to do gifts were opened while the riding continued which meant some children didn??t get to see their gift opened or provide the recipient the ability to offer thanks. Nobody was allowed to play with their toys because it would scare the horses.

Several times someone from with the home came out and yelled at the kids to get back in the pavilion. They weren??t supposed to pet or play around the horses in the barn. We were assured there would plenty of activities for the kids ?? this simply was not true. When discussing the options with what appeared to be the owner we were only offered the promise that many others have enjoyed the party. This did nothing to remedy the problem.

We had to remain until all the parents arrived to pick up their children and restlessness continued. This was a terrible experience from beginning to end.

One of the very good stables in MArietta and the best thing bout this place is they organise birthday parties too within the area and kids enjoy a lot when they go for pony rides or see how to take care of horses..it is both fun filled and learning experience...they have horse riding courses also and very suitable timings.

One of the very few original horse stables in marietta. Theya re locatted write off of the intersection of Roswell Rd. and Johnsons Ferry. They give hourly horse lessons. It's fun to just watch others playing around on the horses too.
