My Mission-To provide students with an opportunity for a successful future with horses, through teaching sound horse handling, safety, and riding techniques.
Horses have a unique place in human history. They are powerful and magical creatures that captivate all people with their beauty and strength. Horses are also valuable work partners with an extraordinary capacity for learning. But horses cannot be forced to respond, they are simply too big. Instead, a horse must be taught with a careful blend of simple steps repeated over time with understanding, discipline, and strategy. Learning to handle a horse allows people to develop techniques for overcoming life’s challenges. The rewards of handling, riding, and partnership with one of man's best friends can change a person's life and their perspective on life around them.
