    Default Triple Rise - Eugene, OR

    I'm looking for opinions on the boarding/training program at Triple Rise. We have a youngster that is ready to go in a program and this is one of the barns that we have visited. Opinions appreciated on here or via PM. Thanks!

    What type of a program are you looking for? I think highly of Mike and Mollie's program. Absolutely top notch. Mike is one of the rare "real horsemen" trainers. I can't speak to the day-to-day operations, but if I were down in that area they would be my first choice.

    Agree with PNWJumper-Mike is first rate. Superb program with no "gimmicky" stuff, just classic horsemanship and quality instruction. His horses and students always do very well. Many of his horses compete for years, which speaks to his care and consideration for their well-being--they are healthy, not taped together and drugged.

    If I moved to the Eugene area, it's definitely where I would take my horse.

    Thank you everyone! I went down last week to look at the facility and visit with Rachel and enjoyed my visit. Unfortunately, I have asked for the board/training contract three times and still haven't received it. Any other places to check out in case things don't move forward with Triple Rise?
