I have so many good things to say about Alyssa and this facility. I had an injured horse that she and her staff did so much to ensure his recovery. I recommend West Coast Equine Sports Therapy to anyone needing a caring reputable place for any of your horses needs. 


AWESOME place, great people! The facility is always clean and fresh, you can tell the animals are well cared for. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I feel confident the aqua therapy is a huge benefit to keeping my active sporting dog in good condition.


I cannot express how grateful I am for the care that WCEST has provided for my horse! There was communication between Dr. McIntosh, Alyssa at WCEST and UC Davis. Now Gracie is in recovery back at WCEST and I, again, can't thank them enough for how well they have treated my horse and how well they have worked with me. Not to mention their facility is absolutely beautiful. Full indoor arena to work in and beautiful stalls for boarding! Thank you so much for everything!


I have had such a positive, fun, and educational experience for my 12 year old daughter Clara. Alyssa is patient, kind, and absolutely wonderful for Clara to learn all aspects of equine care and riding.
