Beyond the Basics & way beyond...

        Our Program & Trail Rides

What this program does is teach you to ride on incredibly good horses, get control of the reins, steer the horse, convince him to do what he does not want to do, what to do in an emergency, and find your balance point and ever so much more.

 

When you want to learn something, you learn from an experienced friend and dependable equipment. For horse riding you want a horse that can teach you the ropes, not an unbroke or a greenbroke horse or a barrel racer horse or one just off the racetrack - and you don’t want someone yelling at you to just “suck it up” and do it” either.

 

There needs to be a balance with your instructor (me) and your horse and what you can or are willing to handle..

 

So I can teach you to mount your horse, steer your horse, handle the reins, stop your horse, slow him down and speed him up, go across creeks, go up and down hills, trot, go through the briars and the brambles,  and get him to do what he might not want to do and what you might be nervous to do.,

 

This I call REAL Riding - not total focus on your position or style in the saddle or going in circles in an arena.  This is what riding is all about and what it  is meant to be.

 

No fancy or pretty riding here - just going over hill and dale on incredibly diverse terrain with a great partner and your new best friend.
