what are people saying?
"I brought my two horses here during a very chaotic time for all of us. We’d just lost a beloved member of our herd and both the horses and my family were grieving. The Riding Club of Austin offers a convenient location, great prices and a covered arena, but I didn’t know if it was going to work for us. Upon arrival, both horses settled immediately and seemed to relax. I don’t know what is in the air here, but all of the horses on the property seem content. Happy horses is all I need really, but there was a bonus in store for us. Lauren is a student of rider biomechanics and this is exactly the kind of instruction I need to be a better rider and to succeed at dressage. I can’t speak for everyone, but the lesson program here, along with the occasional opportunity to ride with Heather Blitz has been amazing and added so much to my journey as a rider. So, happy horses, excellent training and guidance for riders, and an inviting atmosphere make The Riding Club of Austin the best way to experience horses, dressage and the equestrian lifestyle."
"IYKYK and as soon as I landed at Austin Riding Club, I knew I'd found my "Goldilocks" of horse barns. The place feels magical and fun, yet safe. I am an adult beginner who was scared, intimidated or disappointed in every other horse facility I "sampled." I am grateful to have found a place to learn about and enjoy horses exactly the way I feel comfortable doing it!"
“My daughter and I have been riding here for about four months now. Having a warm and accepting barn family is very important to us and this is something we felt immediately from everyone we met here whether they were staff or fellow boarders. This barn and the people here have become such a large part of our life because there is such an open minded and non-judgmental perspective! I would say that this facility and the people and horses that make it up are a rare and unique find that make it stand out from the rest! I could not recommend it more!💕”
"My horse and I are in full training with Lauren and my daughter is taking beginner pony lessons with Sammy, and I couldn’t be happier with the way we are all progressing. One of the best things about the riding club of austin is how the trainers are experts in their field and know their stuff, but are also super approachable, not intimidating at all, and make every lesson fun. There are also a lot of fun people who ride at the barn who are up for adventures like trail riding and other off property outings which I love doing. Riding Club is a gem and I’m so happy we found it!"
"Lauren has been coaching me since I first climbed on a horse at the age of 55. She teaches with warmth, firmness, encouragement, and a healthy dose of humor. I’m not sure I’d still be riding if I hadn’t found my riding home with Lauren and the other exceptional teachers she has partnered with. Lauren has created an equestrian community that values kindness and care toward humans, animals, our planet and probably the cosmos too! Beautiful facility, expert teaching, and supportive environment!"
"We have been in lessons with LMBE, Riding Club of Austin for many years and have had the best barn experience yet! My daughter loves all things horse and we have tried out several barns in Austin over the years, Lauren’s barn is “home”. The instructors are all wonderful and we have had lessons with all of them. They have horses for all riding abilities and all are very well mannered and well taken care of of. Lauren is lovely, professional and talented with people and horses. I also love how easy it is to schedule lessons on her website!"
"I’ve been riding at Austin Riding Club for a little less than a year. I initially came to the barn for the location’s proximity to both my work and home, but I stayed for the people! I love the laidback, friendly and accepting environment that’s welcoming of people of all ages and experiences. After many years of waiting to buy, Lauren helped me to connect me with my first horse! She’s been phenomenal at providing me with recommendations and feedback for training my new green project. As a student I appreciate that all of the trainers at Austin Riding Club continue to seek further education in their craft. As a boarder, I love having a barn where I never have to worry about the quality of care my animal receives. When my horse has been hurt, they have been quick to assist with her care and make sure she is comfortable. I know that the entire barn community including staff, boarders and students always has each other’s back!"
"I can't give enough praise to Lauren Baggett and her team! In my 20+ years of boarding horses at multiple barns, I've never felt more at ease having my equine partner under such amazing care and schooling. Peace of mind comes with a former vet tech on-site at all hours, attention to detail/health by all members of the staff, as well as support and encouragement in training and learning. From basic polo wrap instruction to detailed thumb placement guidance during riding lessons, the depth of knowledge and support in trainers is top notch. The horses' health and happiness are of top priority and customized care is of utmost importance to each member of the staff. There is passion for the pursuit of improvement always, no matter the skill level for human or horse. And the vibe? It's a relaxing place of fun, laughter, hard work, and dedication to goals for both horse and rider as I've never experienced before. I'm so grateful to have found this fantastic place!"
