When my daughter showed interest in taking horseback riding lessons, I chose Chariot Riders due to the fact that they are certified in therapy riding. Although my daughter is not in need of therapy riding, I knew that this business must be run well in order to be certified. The instructors are great and the farm is run very well and kept up nicely, with the help of volunteers, I'm sure. We are very happy at Chariot Riders!

My daughter has been riding at Chariot for 2 years now. Although she is not a special needs child, I was impressed at how Chariot was the only CERTIFIED special needs riding facility out of the few that I looked at in Ocean and Monmouth counties. I figured in order to be certified and run a program like this, the business had to be well run. When we started, that's exactly what I found! The instructors are great and we have had a very positive experience overall! We love Chariot!!!

Chariot Riders is top notch. We tried a few other places before we found Chariot Riders, and they just did not compare. My daughter, Sophia, attended a 5 day horse camp there. My daughter, who is usually unwilling to go anywhere without me, rushed me out of the house to get there each morning! In 5 days, she was a different girl. The instructors, Emily and Steven, were absolutely AMAZING with the kids. I have NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS TO SAY! It is so clean there and Linda, the owner, was very helpful. We are hooked and scheduling weekly lessons for our daughter. THANK YOU CHARIOT FARMS!

Pulling into that gravel driveway for the first time, I had no idea it would change my life. At 13 years old, I was a quiet, shy, even sad kid at times. Chariot Riders changed that. I learned so much, bonded with amazing animals, found my passion for working with children and horses, and made friends that lasted through the years. Although life now doesn't leave much time for the barn nowadays, I will always cherish the memories made and experience gained. Not only was the barn a confidence builder and a great place to spend time growing up, it gave me so much I cannot put into words. The people and the lengths they go for the students and kids are amazing. I truly recommend Chariot Riders to anyone who wants their child to grow and learn around animals. Any child will be in good hands (and hooves) at Chariot Riders.
