"It was a wonderful experience for me and my boys. The lack of ego and judgment is a new experience for sure. Being able to just be myself and feel supported...awesome!"
"It was a real confidence builder for me with my horses, trusting Atty more, seeing that he can change his thought much better and regulate emotions. I realized, too, how far I'd come in my relationship and responsiveness with Shone since our last camp"

"I enjoyed participating it in a clinic at Cindy’s High Desert Stables indeed!
Cindy was very friendly and easy to be with.
There after I realized Cindy is totally committed to having a grand relationship with all of her horses.
I enjoyed being there very much and wish Cindy was my neighbor.
I have been an equestrian and horse lover for over 65 years."
"I started taking lessons at High Desert Stable 19 years ago,and am boarding my second horse there.
Cosmo is 25 and is thriving.His diet is customized to meet his needs,and he is content with his turn
There are numerous places to ride,and a wonderful group of boarders to interact with .
I am getting lessons on communicating with Cosmo with goal of him being relaxed and happy to
comply with my directions.The principles are very basic,and the results are positive.
Cindy continues to make High Desert Stable a place to relax and enjoy horses."

"I have had 2 wonderful experiences with Cindy Normandeau and High Desert Stables. During my first experience I sent a mare to Cindy to breed to her Welsh Cob stallion. Cindy took excellent care of my mare, arranged the vet visits and sent my mare back after a couple of months pregnant. It was easy and my mare was well taken care of when I picked her up to bring home. I had a beautiful colt from this mare and when he was old enough I sent him to Alison Hardas , trainer , at High Desert Stables to be started under saddle. He was already trained to drive but Alison was the first to ride him. When I picked him up one month later he was in wonderful condition and ready to ride. Cindy looked after him and made sure all his needs were cared for. I have been very pleased with High Desert Stables and highly recommend them."
