We welcome all disciplines, ages of riders, and breeds, with or without your own horse!
Instruction Program on our horses: All students learn proper grooming, leading, and how to tack the horse up in a manner that is respectful of the horse. Students begin on the lunge line on our school horses for a rider assessment and to further develop a good seat and proper balance in the saddle to build confidence and teach the rider how to follow the horse’s movements. Students ride in a Lauriche saddle ”the Lexus of saddles,” which is desingned for proper balance of the rider and proper fit for the horse to ensure a quality ride for both horse and rider.
Students also learn how to properly lunge a horse and work in-hand to develop a relationship on the ground and learn how to better understand and communicate with their partner.
We provide quality tack for our students to ensure their safety and provide a Lauriche saddle, which aids in the riders development of a balanced seat and proper equitation.
Students with their own horses: Tina’s goals are to assist the horse and rider to become more balanced and accomplish their goals: first working on rider position, then teaching the rider how to communicate with their horse in a manner that makes sense to the horse. Producing a happy, balanced horse and happy, balanced rider!
