We like to teach true horsemen here. It starts with how to care for the horses and goes from there. We teach the young and the not so young. We have group and private lessons but most are group. Prices are: Group $50, $75 1/2 hour private. We also occasionaly offer camps at $125 per day.
We do make some exceptions on the age. Rylan was only three years old and started out taking a short ride after her Dad's ride. Now she takes her own lessons.
We do love the stock horses and Appaloosas in particular because they make such good family horses.
Even the five years olds are expected to groom and pick hooves before and after they ride.
We teach all seats beginner through advanced.
Don't let age or style of riding stop you, We are all inclusive.
Some students like the challenge of bareback and once they have a good seat established we encourage that. I like to say "You don't ride the saddle, you ride the horse"
Our clinics and Camps are fun and adventurous.
At the camps, we explore all things about horses and maybe donkeys too. Many of our regular students attend to expand what they have learned in hourly lessons. Some bring their own show horses and we might add a new event to what they are already doing.
We like to work with the showing students more one on one for more advanced skills.
Audra is helping Jenny work with her horse Cowboy on trail and advanced manurvering.
Many times what starts as a child taking lessons becomes a family activity.
We have a climate controled observation room for the arena but most parents like to hang out at the gate so they too can hear the instructions.
We ride rain or shine in our 200 x 80 indoor arena. It is big enough to practice all types of riding and obstacles.
We also like to ride out in the open. We frequently take students out to the hay field, woods or trails
The show horses and riders enjoy getting out of the arena for a relaxing ride in addition to the regiment of the arena.
Some of our instruction takes place at the shows as well as at home.
Show coaching might involve talking over patterns, when to get ready, how to prepare the horse for competion and advice on show clothing.
