View Full Version : Looking for a lesson Barn in/near Carlsbad California
Sep. 14, 2009, 12:57 PM
My signifigant other's daughter spends the school year in with her Grandmother in Carlsbad Ca, and I need barn reccomendations for her.
I asked this question last fall, got great responses from other COTHers, but none of the barns called us back....so thanks in advance for your suggestions.
She is 15, does w-t-c and jumps small (like 2') courses. She would be interested in showing on a local level.
Feel free to PM if you would rather not speak on the open forum

Sorry, I can't help personally with SoCal barns, but you might try looking on BAEN or their "Southern California" site (see link at the bottom of this main page):
BAEN is primarily NorCal, but there are some posters from the south. The Southern CA board isn't as active, but should have barn links, etc.

You should try Haven Farms. They are located off Lone Jack Road in Wildflower Estates in Olivenhain. Depending on where in Carlsbad you are it's not too far. Their website is www.havenfarmsllc.com and their phone number is (858) 756-6937.
They also have a really nice group of kids at the barn.
