Every horse and rider is different and each has their own specific needs.

Lessons are taught in a positive and supportive style and can be in a private or group setting depending on the rider's preferrence. Our lesson times are very flexible to accomodate all kinds of busy lifestyles.
All of our students have access to our sale and show horses. Even if you board your own horse with us, you may find it helpful to learn from one of our experienced schoolmasters. We have lesson horses as well as a steady influx of sale horses our students are able to ride. If you would like to show at the top levels of the sport, chances are we have a horse that can take you there!
