What our boarders say

“After taking lessons from Darren for a year, I was fortunate enough to move my horse to his barn to board. I really appreciate having the comfort of knowing my horse is cared for by a knowledgeable, experienced professional. Darren goes out of his way to ensure the horses get quality care and it shows! Darren Woller Horsemanship is a great place to board and having the opportunity to continue learning from Darren has been beneficial to me both as a rider and a person.”

“I have worked with Darren for many years and have nothing bad to say. I started at Darren's when I was just 12, I have been riding horses since I was little but I taught myself to ride mostly. Darren took the time to get to know me personally, I believe this helped me better understand what he was trying to teach me. I have now been at Darrens for 7 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. The atmosphere at the barn is very laid back and chill. He is a very personal guy that will do anything he can to help out, see that your needs are met, and that if you have a problem it is solved. Its amazing how many lessons Darren has and the variety of people that take them. Darren makes every single lesson personal, he talks to you to find out where you are in your riding life, how much you know, and where you want to go with your riding career. Over the 7 year span that I have been with Darren I don’t think I have ever seen two identical lessons. If youre looking for a great place to better yourself and your horse or if you're just looking for a friendly atmosphere to board at; I highly recommend Darren Woller Horsemanship!”

“My first encounter with Darren was when I was seeking professional help for my very nervous horse with his stopping issues. After Darren's evaluation of my horse he agreed to train him. After seeing the impact he made on my horse and the laid back atmosphere at the barn I decided to stay and board my horse there. That was the best decision I could have made. My horse and I are very happy at DWH. One of Darren's favorite sayings is he trains the rider more then he has to train the horse. After taking lessons with Darren this turned out to be so true. I have really learned how to connect with my horse thanks to DWH. We have now been at DWH for five years. Can't imagine us being any where else.”
