"I've been boarding here for a year and I can't say enough about this place. All the horses here are treated with high quality care, they feed three times a day, and have the best barn manager and trainers that are easily approachable and super helpful. Although I didn't experience previous management from what I hear it was not good!! So if you've been turned off by the place due to previous management, fear not, Janelle is the new manager and she is AMAZING! She is so knowledgeable, friendly and so welcoming! Terri is our trainer and she is very experienced and great with kids! Its also easily accessible to trails and has a big arena with great footing. I would highly recommend this stable for anyone that is in the area, close to trails and simply a hidden gem! I guarantee it will not disappoint!"

"This place was great. We took a group of boys to horseback ride. They learned some other valuable lessons on cleaning stables, picking up after the horses and grooming them.
It's a great experience for us "city folk" to get some fresh air (and horse manure too).
The staff is very patient and their passion for their horses is evident in their enthusiasm.
This would be a great place for kids and adult parties."
"I am getting ready to send my horse to board here, the New manager 'Janell' is awesome, very experienced horsewoman and very nice!
They offer, lessons, boarding, birthday parties and camps. I'm also going to take advantage of all of their services too for my daughter.
They feed top quality feed and have two live in employees, so there is always someone around day or night "
"Julie is an incredible instructor! Our Girl Scout troop learned a lot and had a great time earning their horseback riding badge with her. A lot of the handlers and assistants were also Girl Scouts which made the experience even more meaningful. The facility was great, very accommodating, and professional. Thank you Julie and Altadena Stables!"
"Took my 5th lesson today with Teri and can't say enough about how much I love this place. So comfortable, nothing pretentious about it... Just full of people who love horses and want to share their knowledge with you! As an adult beginner, this is so important to me. Plus, Teri's training style is obviously rooted in her deep understanding of not just riding but teaching riding (which is a different skill set entirely). Highly recommend!"
"Altadena Stables, where have you been all my life?
20 of my 26 years on this planet have been spent with horses, at several stables throughout the world. Now, at last, I'm thrilled to say that I've finally found my favorite place.
If you're looking for an equestrian facility that is pristine without pretention, and serene without exception, then look no further... You've found your dream.
To keep from rambling on for hours, I'll confine my praise within a list:
-Charming, clean and well-maintained location.
-Down-to-earth people and well-treated horses.
-Access to trails that won't disappoint.
-Great footing, from the arena to the round pen, to the bedding and beyond.
-High quality feed, provided 3-times-a-day.
-Plenty of shade, and functioning fans.
-A panoply of training options, from the classic English (ex: Huntseat) and Western (ex: Pleasure), to disciplines which are more rare to find training in (ex: Driving and Saddleseat).
-A sweet, peaceful atmosphere that is drama- free.
In conclusion, Altadena Stables thrives on a visibly genuine love of horses that can only make you smile."
