We believe that horsemanship should at the root of all equestrians, at all levels. From the very first lessons we strive to teach our riders on the ground as well as in the tack. All beginners

take our horsemanship lessons, that way they become independent and confident around horses. Our more advanced riders have the option of riding alone or in a group, dependent

on availability.
