Our mission is to provide our horses with a quality foundation through a horse-centered approach. We are fortunate to have the training expertise and infrastructure that allows us to offer many different experiences and meet the various needs of any horse. We specialize in colt starting, working through problem behaviors, refinement, strengthening horse and rider relationships, tune-ups, and simple “fit evaluations” (does a particular horse suit a particular rider?). We strive to work with horses and their owners to help build a confident, versatile horse and rider.
How it works
- Reach out, let us know your goals, and we'll determine if we're the right fit for each other!
- We require 60 day minimum for training, we don't believe in quick fixes. It takes the time it takes and the horse sets the pace.
- Send a non-refundable deposit to secure your spot! We will hold your spot for one month until deposit is received.
- Training price includes board and 5 rides/ week with one of those rides being a lesson with us if you choose.
Our team of professional instructors offer lessons from beginner to advanced, children to adults. With our versatile staff we’re able to offer lessons covering a wide range of disciplines—western, english, western dressage, ranch versatility, trail, cattle, etc. Our program focuses on developing a quality foundation that allows our students to excel no matter what their goals are through developing feel, timing, and balance.
We currently have a waitlist for our lesson program. Please check out our forms page to get on our waitlist!
Turn out- Horses are turned-out 24-7 in small herds, weather permitting. Pastures range from 5 to 25-acre lots with ponds, outside automatic waterers, and free choice mineral supplements. Each pasture has run-in sheds that are cleaned daily.
Riding- The farm offers a large indoor and outdoor arena to accommodate riding in all weather conditions. With miles of trails on and near the property, there is plenty to explore!
Stalls- We have two barns with matted stalls. Our "big" barn features automatic waterers with direct access to the indoor arena. As a boarder you will also have access to your own locker for storing your tack and other horse supplies.
