2012-03-06 22:12:34   I've been training at SunFire for over a year now and I love it. Alana is a great trainer, her horses are wonderful, and the training opportunities are endless! I whole-heartedly recommend SunFire for riders of any age and experience level. —NicoleSharpe

2012-03-13 19:44:30   Alana is the best, she has brought my confidence up tons since I first started riding with her in January of 2011! The horses, people, and atmosphere are all fantastic! —BiaKinder

2012-03-13 21:11:44   I've been training with SunFire for 5 years now, and I've loved every minute of it. The people and horses are all great, and Alana is a superb trainer from beginning to advanced riding levels. I was fairly certain I didn't even want to do eventing when I started out, but now I think it's the best thing in the world! Alana is such a great person and trainer, and opens up so many options for all levels, and you can tell she loves the horses, her students, and what she does. The atmosphere is so great it has become my place to go to get away from everyday stress and drama; A home away from home! —BeccaS

2012-03-18 19:49:02   Alana is truly my ideal trainer. She has a uncannily perceptive eye, a very solution oriented approach to training and is kind and encouraging to both horse and rider. I have been riding with Sunfire for a little over a year and my riding, confidence and eye have improved greatly in that time. Alana also connected me with the horse of my dreams for which I will be forever grateful! Highly recommend Sunfire. —MarikoP

2012-03-19 11:07:39   I found Alana after a few years off from riding and wanting to take up a new discipline. She is amazing! I have learned a great deal in a short time and always look forward to my lessons with her. They are always challenging and fun and I always feel like a better rider afterwards. The horses at SunFire are just as great and Alana is the perfect horse/rider match maker! SunFire is my favorite place to spend my free time and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their riding skills and having fun :) —ehummer

2014-08-27 15:34:22   I absolutely love riding at this barn. Alan and Tati are both great trainers and the barn manager (Lisa) is a total sweetheart. I would recommend Sunfire Equestrian to anyone looking for a place to lease, board or just take lessons. The lesson horses are all very talented and boarded horses are wonderfully cared for :) —EmilyAllyn

2014-08-27 16:13:58   Alana, Tati, and Lisa are spectacular women and create the best horse environment I have ever experienced. I have been boarding there for about 2 years and am so grateful to be part of such a great barn with good people and rest assured that my horse is well taken care of. The facilities, care and instruction are all superb. There is a spectrum of riders at different levels and it is an incredibly supportive environment. —JuliaErsan

2014-08-27 18:38:46   I am a vet student and moved to Davis with my horse 2 years ago. When I asked other vet students for recommendations of barns in the area the overwhelming response was Sunfire. I've had zero complaints in the 2 years I've kept my mare there. The barn manager Lisa is amazing and goes the extra mile with her attention to detail and horse knowledge. Alana and Tati are excellent instructors and nurture an amazing group of riders in everything from jumping lessons, to dressage, to eventing shows. It is a wonderful community to be a part of whether you own a horse or not. I've grown so much as a rider by riding my own horse and the lesson horses, and with Alana's instruction. I'm not sure if I could find another barn this great for anywhere near the price anywhere else. —SarahSchale

2014-08-28 08:19:05   I highly recommend Sunfire Equestrian Center. Alana, Tati and Lisa are all amazing trainers. My daughter has been riding at Sunfire for a couple of years and she has grown as a rider and as a person from her experiences here. This is an amazing place. —MichelePermenter
