I started riding with Barbi at Sea Horse Ranch in Los Osos around 3 years ago after not riding for 25 years. I love the way she helped me get back into riding and I love her passion. I really feel fortunate to have such quality of instruction. I learn in one lesson what it might take other trainers 10 lessons to teach. Her experience is un-surpassed! I also lease my beautiful horse from Barbi. The boarding here at the ranch is so complete: well kept arenas, safe footing, and great people! Everyone here at Sea Horse Ranch is super supportive. The scenery is spectacular, as the ranch is over looking Morro Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The weather is perfect for riding. The trails next to the ranch are so amazing. I love the Central Coast and Sea Horse Ranch it is so beautiful. It only takes about 10 minutes on horseback to get to the beach, Montana De Oro state park is in our back yard…what more could I ask for? It feels like a mini-retreat every time I ride.Jayme Broudy, student

During this past year, I have ridden several horses with Barbi, each with a unique set of issues. After each lesson, I came away with new awareness and tools to help deal with problems of both the horses and the rider!Dorreen Gilmore, student
Barbi is fantastic with kids! After just a few lessons with Barbi my ten-year-old daughter improved her scores by seven to eight points. Barbi is able to relate to kids in their language and with tricks and hints that they can relate to. She is firm without being heavy-handed and her positive teaching methods have given my daughter the self-confidence she needs to reach her riding potential. We feel blessed to be able to work with such a positive person.Robin Walters, student
I Love Sea Horse Ranch in Los Osos. I retired from teaching and pursued my dream of horseback riding. Barbi made my dream a reality. Barbi helped me find my horse “Holly” and now I board my horse at this beautiful ranch. I am learning dressage. The people are so friendly, and the view and trails are like paradise. Barbi is one of the top dressage trainers in the country. The amazing part is that it is affordable! You will love Barbi and the Sea Horse Ranch. Thanks Barbi!Ginny Carr, student
