I was so disappointed with how this ranch treated the students. The lessons are way too packed and the horses are not well trained. Someone bellow said that they have horses for "all different levels on riders" which is true, but I don't care how experienced a rider is, they shouldn't be put on a horse that acts like a complete idiot. I am an upper level dressage rider and I have been in my fair share of scary situations, but my experience at the Flying G Ranch was definitely the scariest. Someone always falls off in their lessons, expecially on the trails. The kids are cussed at, intemidated, and treated like dirt. They students do not get any one on one time with the instructor at all, and are just expected to teach themselves how to ride. Do not take your kids here!!
Wow. just wow. Too many students, seen a rider get bucked off in class and trails. Kids get yelled at, esp if they have adhd or arent just perfect. no riding skills taught. You dont get what you paid for. The horses are just school horses. No actual training...as a mom who has ridden upper level english and western this was just hard to watch. Theres no how to use legs, hands or seat aids. What did it for us was my child seeing another get cussed at. We move to West Equestrian, Sand Springs. Small groups, High quality instruction. Amazing Instructors. Not far away.
To many students in a small arena! Riders would constantly bump into you and spook your horse. Someone usually would fall off of their horse every lesson. The instructor couldn't teach well because of so many students. It was basically a "learn to ride from experience" place rather than getting actual lessons. I took two months of lessons and didn't learn anything technical. I switched to Promise Acres Arena in Sapulpa, Oklahoma and learned more in one lesson than I did the whole time I was at Flying G Ranch! Plus if you buy lessons in a package its cheaper.
Great place for lessons – Both my daughters learned a lot from the Flying G. What I loved as a mom were the wide variety and levels of horses...not just a few "school horses" which maybe why someone posted a problem with the horses. There are different level horses for different level riders. Some of those challenging horses taught my daughter how to take control. In large lessons kids were split into 2 groups for safety reasons. You also get a lot of bang for your buck..many other places charge more $ for less riding time. There were actually times lessons went long to ensure everyone got plenty of riding time...ONLY downfall was that the indoor arena is small and used in bad weather...(Outdoor arena is awesome!) wish it had a full size indoor arena...
Best Ranch Ever!!! – Flying G ranch is one of the best places I have ever been to! I took lessons there for about 4 years! My instructor was awsome and she would always have something up her sleeve for a fun filled day! She always kept an eye on ya and made sure you were on the right horse for you. whether it was a slow easy horse such as honey or an average horse for fun lessons like monarch.I can't think of any other place in the world that I would want to take riding lessons at!
Flying G, Finally, a dream come true! – I am what you would call an overly protective mother, When my daughter wanted riding lesson, I shook in my boots. But I allowed her to start private lessons at the Flying G ranch. She soon moved into the group lessons. The instructor was Wonderful, she treated the children like the individuals they are. My daughter not only learned how to care for her horse, and ride, she learned self confidence and pride in what she did. I have had equestrian lessons in Washington, and my daughters have tried them here in Michigan. There is nothing, without a doubt, to compare to The Flying G. If you are worried about trainer to student ratio, then pay the extra for private lessons. My girls always talk about the Flying G and we always schedule rides when we come back to town to visit friends. If you want to learn to ride, there is no better place to learn!
Safety issues – some horses are a danger and not enough wranglers per riders. too many students in horse classes.
Will be a very good learning experiece. – I believe that the Flying G Ranch is a good place to learn how to ride. I learned to ride there and now I am a national top ten rider. You can learn both western and english there and the important thing is you learn it the right way. Trust me if you stick with lessons you will learn a lot.
Very nice – krunnels kids are spoiled brats. krunnels is a bad mother. I took lessons there and krunnels dropped her kids off and forgot to pick them up.
Avoid – like the other people said too many kids. Its a popularity contest. If she likes you then you will be ok but one wrong move and your screwed. Teach only Basics
Pros: learning to ride
Cons: too much money for what your getting tought
