I don't personally ride there, but I know a fair amount of people who do, show against a lot of their riders and I know that they have an AMAZING program! The people are exceptionally nice, and so are the horses!!

They are nice people with a great reputation in the area. I rode there for a short while before I came up to New Hampshire for boarding school, and the horses and trainers were great. Plus, IIRC, their barn is always neat and they are fairly organized people... I don't know about you, but that's a big plus for me.
A gal I have known for a long time rode at Back Bay during school when she had moved out to MA. She has subsequently moved back to the east coast and moved herself right back to Back Bay. I've always thought of her as a good horseperson, so I would think her moving there two times says good things!
no, joy no longer trains at back bay as far as I know. I believe she left recently.
Back bay is super organized, clean, well run, beautiful facility. Robin is very professional and a wonderful person. I don't ride there personally but I have ridden two of her horses for finals, she's very good friends with my old trainer and my current trainer also does some work for her schooling horses at shows if she needs it.
A few of my friends ride with her. They're all very nice people.
