What our clients are saying

“Sherwood has been perfect for our daughter and horse. Jo does the “A” hunter/jumper shows and we’ve been extremely pleased with her guidance at the shows and the quality training of both our horse and rider. The boarding has also been top notch and our horse is very well cared for and content. Jo also has lesson horses for beginning riders. Overall, best barn and training we’ve ever had for our daughter.”
OUSTANDING ,Pleased in Magnolia
“I’ve been riding with Jo Schroeder and having her train and ride my horses for nearly 20 years, and could not be happier with her (as should be obvious from our long relationship). She is an excellent rider and trainer, and can take a horse from an unbacked baby up to grand prix. She can do the same with teaching riders. Sherwood Sport Horses is a wonderful facility, run by friendly and very knowledgeable horse people. The horses are very well taken care of, and as an owner, it is comforting to know there are folks on site who know horses, can keep an eye on them, and know what to do just in case.”
EXCELLENT RIDER AND TRAINER, Jennifer Price
“Sherwood sport horses is a top notch hunter/jumper and/or dressage barn. If you are looking for a boarding or training facility in or around The Woodlands, Conroe, Magnolia, or Tomball area I would definitely suggest checking them out. The indoor arena offers a cool place to ride and the outdoor arena is perfect for Showjumping. The arenas are manicured daily and the horses are all very well taken care of. If you or your child need riding lessons the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a competitive yet laid back horse back riding place.”
TOP NOTCH, Philip Savio

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Ashleigh Humphrey
“I am usually a very careful planner when changing barns and trainers, it is a big deal to me! Circumstances didn’t allow for it this time and I am super happy to say, we are in a great place! My husband and I both ride (at different levels) and we are both learning a ton, improving and having a blast! I was timid when I came to Jo; she has gotten me out of my ‘slump’ and we are moving back up. The care for the horses is amazing as well. Top notch! Well done Jo, and thanks!”
TOP NOTCH, Kris Mikaelian
“Jo operates with the utmost care for both the horse and rider, plus an extremely high level of integrity – which is not always a given in this industry. She has ‘been there and done it’ in several disciplines and so has a vast bank of knowledge and experience to draw on when teaching. Jo will push you to excel and gets the results, while simultaneously being cognizant of your learning style and how fast you like to progress. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!! The staff and facilities are great: inside arenas and outside jumping ring, numerous paddocks and fly controlled stalls.”
HIGH LEVEL OF INTEGRITY, Julie Pearce
“Jo is a rare talented trainer that has top-rate clients and horses. She has super high expectations for each rider and horse combination, no matter the breeding. Her expertise and professionalism infuses you with confidence and drives you to reach beyond yourself. She extends much grace and compassion and has a fabulous sense of humor! I loved grooming for her and miss her terribly. It was an honor to be part of her winning team.”
