Group Lessons: Coming Soon


We have horses available for lease for advanced, knowledgeable, skilled riders who are interested in showing
With every new rider, we start by seeing what the rider's goals are and what they hope to achieve and learn. We teach our riders everything from the ground up so they learn how to groom, halter, tie and handle their horse on the ground and proper safety as they learn how to saddle, flex/stretch and lunge the horse before they learn to ride. If the rider is an experienced horse person/rider we still go over this information briefly to ensure they know the correct way to do everything. We specialize in all disciplines but primarily reining as well as show coaching of any discipline. We often practice exercises such as riding bareback, riding with no stirrups, english and western. Practicing patterns, two-tracking, side passing, pivoting, circles, figure eights and many more. And we encourage riders to ride more than just one horse so they become better riders as every horse learns and responds differently from one another. Riders should be old enough to catch, groom, and saddle their own horse in order to take lessons (typically 12 years old minimum). Once riders have mastered the basic skills we work on their future goals. All depending on the rider and their passion, drive and goals for what they want. If the rider provides the goals, we will provide the training to get there. We are also the leaders of a great 4H club for anyone interested who is between the ages of 8-18
