I heard about the budget cut but since my riding started last year I have no way to compare my experiences between before / after the cut.<br> + <br> + From my personal aspect, I would say UCD Equestrian center is a perfect place for anyone who want to get to start horse back riding in the area. I did a little riding six year ago (I could trot back then), and the Equestrian center definitely improve my riding to a new level (I can canter now).<br> + <br> + Instructors:<br> + the instructors I have been having lessons with are Teresa, Samantha and Hanna. They all are well-experienced and patient instructors who work me through all kinds of problems or issues in riding I have. The only problem I can think of about the group lesson is that within 1 hour 30 min time period (that usually includes tacking and untacking the horses) and maximum four students (usually 3-4 ppl) in the same class, the attention and time you can get from instructors is somehow limited. Besides that, the quality of a group lesson is also highly related to (1) the skills of you and your classmates, (2) the mood of the horses today, and (3) the weather and the surroundings in the arena today. But I have to say that instructors are kind and nice and enthusiastic in horseback riding that they are really open minded to teach you all riding aids for different speed of gaits. I myself as an international students, thought it was difficult for me to understand the instructions and terms in the beginning, especially when everyone is moving and the half arena is kind an open space to hear each other, the instructors are really kind and patient to me as always.<br> + <br> + School horses:<br> + there is a same group of horses for schooling, and each of them has their own "horse-personality" you need to know to riding with. I have been riding with Duke (the calm and lazy guy), Bell (the girl who would challenge the rider at the first few minutes of the ride), Shinto (really good girl), Miss (the very sensitive girl), and CR (an old and clam guy; he is not around lately). They all are pretty calm to beginning riders, and they tend to move slower rather than faster, which makes them good and safe choices for schooling. The horse you will get for each lesson may vary depending on the availability of them at the time. In summer sometimes some of them are away for their summer camp. You can ask instructors to assign you the horse you prefer before the lesson sometimes, but I think it is good to have different horse rotated between lessons so you get to know how to accommodate yourself to different ones, which is also important in the horsemanship. The more your ride with EQC the more you understand these schooling horses. There is no "the best" horse to ride with in different lessons, since some of them may be good to trot but not so good in cantering. It really depends case by case. Usually the EQC will assign the ones that are available at the time and all right with the practice today. Ask your instructors to know more about them individually cause the instructors know a lot more about them.<br> + <br> + The EQC has the "guardian angel program" if you want to stop by the barn and take care of the horses owned by EQC sometimes during the week. You are not allowed to ride them in this program though.<br> + <br> + <br> + Overall, I would strongly recommend anyone who wanna understand a little bit about horseback riding to try the first level class (Introduction to riding) to get a feel about this activity, and if it seems interesting then you continue the rest of riding 101 lessons. During the winter/summer breaks or the gap between quarters, the private and semi-private lessons are available too, which are good way to focus on improving your controlling and riding skill since you get much more time with your instructor. --["Users/yuhsuanchan"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2011-08-08 17:24:45yuhsuanchanUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center?action=Files&do=view&target=white%20board%20outside%20the%20office.JPG">white board outside the office.JPG</a>.UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2011-08-08 17:23:19yuhsuanchanUpload of file <a href="http://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center?action=Files&do=view&target=gphoto2">gphoto2</a>.UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2011-05-23 00:17:30lacyluwho <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 95: </td> <td> Line 95: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2010-09-27 13:05:19'' [[nbsp]] My experience with the EQC: Pasture boarding has gone up to $240 and students don't even get discounts. My horse got the crap kicked out of her for at least a year while living in pasture and the EQC offered no other options(such as allowing my horse to go in the EMPTY pasture or kicking out the one bully horse that was just brutal to all the others). They offer overpriced stalls ($395) and no pipe corral boarding. They feed low quality hay that is sometimes even moldy or dirty and when asked about it they ignore the issue. If you like riding before sunset when it's cool during the summer and your horse lives in pasture you're screwed because they will feed at random times, hours before closing or dark, and by the time you get back your horse is the one that suffers by not getting dinner. When you try to resolve this issue on your own by separating your horse from the others to feed for the night, you get yelled at. They also don't welcome trainers from outside of the ranch. This means you have to pay them for their overpriced trainers, most of which are just students (with the exception of the teams' trainers). There used to be lots of room for tack, but since getting rid of the EQC horses and taking in more boarders, they're now only giving us one saddle rack each and cramming lots of people into one tiny tack shed (which are cleaned at the beginning of the year, but later in the year somehow end up having dead birds and rodents lying around). And while living next to the VMTH sounds nice, it seems to me that most of the time they drag a ton of vet students over and use your horse as a guinea pig to try out all their fancy new equipment on, for which they will charge you way more than any college student can afford, all just to confirm that they didn't find anything or that your horse does indeed have the problem you called them out for, but in slightly bigger words. The only things that I can say I enjoy about the EQC are their riding teams and their large indoor arena for the rainy season. --["Users/lacyluwho"]<br> - ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2010-12-14 15:16:40horses010101Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 96: </td> <td> Line 96: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-12-14 14:16:40'' [[nbsp]] The equestrian center is a great place for student boarding. The facilities are almost all brand new. If you've had your horse boarded in Davis before, you know that in the winter the footing for corrals and arenas are horrible. The EQC is the only place where you'll find pastures without deep sloppy mud mid January. All the arenas are groomed daily and are very large. This place is run very organized and professionally. Although, since the boarders are students, they tend to be girls between the ages of 18 and 25. This means that a lot of them develop really strong opinions that arent very accurate. Drama, its what happens at every barn. Compared to others, this one doesn't have that much. Most of the girls are on teams with eachother and are all friends. As far as prices go, this place is still under priced for the facilities and services offered. These boarders are so spoiled, but as you can see, nothing will ever be perfect. As far as things getting stolen...what? i've been here for a while and i don't know anyone who's had a problem.... If you are an experienced rider looking for lessons, OBVIOUSLY you wouldnt go to the beginning riding group lessons. The instructors are college level kids because they are just teaching beginners.....The coaches of the teams are all well qualified so go to them if you want lessons here. The lesson groups only allow up to four people...soo uhh no they're not crowded. Overall, for being having a private/hobby program mixed with a governement/school operation, this place is awesome. The place opens and closes on time, the horses are fed the same time every day, you're stall will be cleaned early in the morning every day. The staff knows every horse on the premises and the owners. You may have to wear a hemlet when you jump and you cant let your dog off the leash, but those things are given on any school property, so why should it be different here? come on people use your brains. Thumbs up for the EQC. --["Users/horses010101"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2010-12-14 15:02:23horses010101 <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 11: </td> <td> Line 11: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The '''UCD [[Address("Equestrian Center", "38.528183023603", "-121.766977986457")]]''' <span>is experiencing</span> some wonderful new changes and upgrades!(fall 2007-2008).

My horse got the crap kicked out of her for at least a year while living in pasture and the EQC offered no other options(such as allowing my horse to go in the EMPTY pasture or kicking out the one bully horse that was just brutal to all the others). They offer overpriced stalls ($395) and no pipe corral boarding. They feed low quality hay that is sometimes even moldy or dirty and when asked about it they ignore the issue. If you like riding before sunset when it's cool during the summer and your horse lives in pasture you're screwed because they will feed at random times, hours before closing or dark, and by the time you get back your horse is the one that suffers by not getting dinner. When you try to resolve this issue on your own by separating your horse from the others to feed for the night, you get yelled at. They also don't welcome trainers from outside of the ranch. This means you have to pay them for their overpriced trainers, most of which are just students (with the exception of the teams' trainers). There used to be lots of room for tack, but since getting rid of the EQC horses and taking in more boarders, they're now only giving us one saddle rack each and cramming lots of people into one tiny tack shed (which are cleaned at the beginning of the year, but later in the year somehow end up having dead birds and rodents lying around). And while living next to the VMTH sounds nice, it seems to me that most of the time they drag a ton of vet students over and use your horse as a guinea pig to try out all their fancy new equipment on, for which they will charge you way more than any college student can afford, all just to confirm that they didn't find anything or that your horse does indeed have the problem you called them out for, but in slightly bigger words. The only things that I can say I enjoy about the EQC are their riding teams and their large indoor arena for the rainy season. --["Users/lacyluwho"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2010-05-16 23:26:03DrDemocracy <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 54: </td> <td> Line 54: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ The property the equestrian center is built on used to be a [http://sportclubs.ucdavis.edu/horsepolo polo field]<br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2010-03-23 15:50:27CampusRec <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 8: </td> <td> Line 8: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=91b62bac-8784-4710-a13a-4182950c90d9 <span>link] "</span>Equestrian Center site<span>"</span>|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=91b62bac-8784-4710-a13a-4182950c90d9 Equestrian Center site<span>]</span>||<span><br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2010-03-23 15:49:45CampusRec <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 8: </td> <td> Line 8: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=91b62bac-8784-4710-a13a-4182950c90d9 link]|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=91b62bac-8784-4710-a13a-4182950c90d9 link]<span>&nbsp;"Equestrian Center site"</span>|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2009-10-14 15:10:35CampusRec <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 8: </td> <td> Line 8: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/<span>eque</span>s<span>tr</span>i<span>an_ce</span>nter<span>/</span> link]|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/<span>cm</span>s<span>/</span>inter<span>nal.aspx?uid=91b62bac-8784-4710-a13a-4182950c90d9</span> link]|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2009-08-29 22:32:52KokoSorensenlinking <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 51: </td> <td> Line 51: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ Here's a list of current &amp; past lesson horses, which is hopefully accurate: ["UCD Equestrian Center Horses"]<br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2009-08-12 18:55:56KokoSorensenComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 80: </td> <td> Line 80: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-08-12 18:55:56'' [[nbsp]] Please correct the photo caption of the black horse if it's not Sassafras.

Okay, it isn't the flashiest or fanciest barn I've been to but the horses are well fed, well cared for, and not overworked. The students who work for the EQC are (for the most part) wonderful and caring individuals who love horses in general and love the quirky ponies who get donated. They work in extreme (for Nor Cal) weather conditions to teach lessons (and make bad pay, I assume, as student workers) and the barn supervisors give up their weekends, mornings and evenings to be there to ensure the safety of the riders and horses. Three cheers for them! I've had some mediocre student instructors but I've also had some outstanding instructors who helped me grow as a rider and helped me achieve goals in the saddle I never thought I could do and who show great commitment to being good instructors even with sometimes less than ideal circumstances. The center is making some slow but good renovations re-doing pens, barns and planting trees. The horses provide good hands-on practice for the vet students, too, who also work really hard to keep the ponies healthy and happy. Because they are donated horses many do have some bad habits or odd issues but thankfully this program exists because the alternative for many of these horses who are no longer useful or wanted by their owners could have been much worse. This is a nice gig for them, their work hours are tightly monitored and they are limited to working in courses that won't exacerbate any issues they might have. The guardian angel program where you can adopt a horse is a great way to spend extra time with the horses and give them extra love and attention. All in all, the EQC is one of the best things about UCD and has a great group of workers who really seem to give their all to the center. --["Users/dandysgirl"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2009-07-12 02:00:11pompomcakesComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 76: </td> <td> Line 76: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-07-12 02:00:11'' [[nbsp]] I recently took a lesson at EQC and had a WONDERFUL time.

It is also limited to 1 horse per boarder because there is such a long wait list already. We would rather have as many people here as possible. The waiting list is so long because it is a very convinient location for students. The waitlist is kept as updated as possible. Pipe pens and self-clean stall are no longer available because a lot of students do not have the time to clean their stall everyday and the stall gets disgusting! Are you really going to out there mucking in the wind, rain, and cold when you have a 12-page paper due the next day anyway? Pastures are always full because they are priced so much lower than the stalls, duh. The tack lockers aren't that bad. There are two racks for saddles and lots of places to hang stuff in it. The traffic does not bother the horses. I have never had one spook on me due to the freeway. Things will get stolen pretty much everywhere you go so just be sensible and keep your stuff locked up in your locker, not out and about and all over the place. The instructors do well for what they are. Students teaching other students. They aren't high level trainers that did Rolex so don't expect them to be. We have a lot of great little ponies. Yes, some of them get a little jaded since they have to put up with a lot of beginner riders but they do their job well. All of the ponies are donated. We are not allowed to buy any so we work with what we can get. They go through an intensive 90-day trail period where they are evaluated many times. We never accept horses that are not safe (for a horse anyway). There are lots of upgrades still in the works like more drainage grading, new fences going up, etc. Of course we have to wait on the university to give us money and that tends to take some time. All in all, the ECQ is a great place to board your horse! --["Users/Desire"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2009-01-06 10:11:11jalindavis <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 10: </td> <td> Line 10: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The '''UCD [[Address("Equestrian Center", "38.528183023603", "-121.766977986457")]]''' is experiencing some wonderful new changes and upgrades!(fall 2007-2008).

It might be convenient if you don't have a car, but ultimately a bad choice. For boarding: Only registered students are allowed to board. You are only allowed to board one horse. The waiting list to get into the facility is quite long, and they don't really keep it updated. THEY NO LONGER HAVE PIPE PENS, and rates have gone up. Pastures are now $190 (and ALWAYS full) and stalls are $300+. There are no other options. When I was looking in to boarding my horse here, they did not offer discounts for mucking your own stall. Also, the tack storage situation is horrible. Plan on keeping your stuff in your car, because you will have almost no space to keep anything at the barn, and being the nature of the high traffic stable, stuff WILL get stolen. IF YOU ARE THINKING OF TAKING LESSONS: Don't. The "instructors" are 18 year old freshman college students who barely know how to ride themselves. It is not hard at all to get hired as an instructor, and the turnover rate is so high that there is no consistent teaching style or quality. The lessons are crowded and you will barely learn anything. The horses are jaded lesson pony that you will learn very little from. Instead of taking lessons here, see about getting a cheap lease on a horse and finding a private, QUALIFIED instructor. --["Users/quarabaloosa"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UCD Equestrian Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/UCD_Equestrian_Center2008-09-22 22:11:07quarabaloosa <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UCD Equestrian Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 45: </td> <td> Line 45: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Every single one of the horses is donated.

All boarders are required to also participate in lessons because this is a part of the school and designed and funded for educational purposes. The fencing is a bit run-down (metal pipes) and it's right in that space between 113 and I-80 as they meet. You can train your horse to get used to the traffic noise but it can be scary for some horses, especially when very large loud trucks go by on the freeway just 30 feet from the arena. The UCD Equestrian center is directly across the street from the School Of Veterinary Medicine Large Animal Clinic, and UCD VMTH Farrier Shop. If your horse requires frequent vet care or specialized horseshoeing this may be a factor in your choice of where to board a horse. There is probably a waiting list to board your horse at this time.</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 12: </td> <td> Line 12: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- There are three fenced arenas, a dressage arena, two round turn-outs, a round pen, and a galloping track around the "polo" field.</span> </td> <td> <span>+ There are three fenced arenas, a dressage arena (recent new footing Nov 2006), two round turn-outs, a round pen, and a galloping track around the "polo" field.
