*Purchasing or Leasing a Horse
Thinking of buying or leasing a horse. We can help you avoid the pitfalls that most inexperienced horse buyers fall into when looking for a horse. If you are planning to eventually buy a horse, get instruction first. Be sure you and your horse can walk, trot, and canter. The horse, no matter what you pay for it, is the cheapest investment. The constant expense for feed, care and equipment will well exceed the purchase price of most horses. There is a difference in a horse that is broke to ride and one that is safe for you to ride.
*Clinics and Group Lessons
We also offer clinics and/or group lessons. These lessons may be in our arena, offsite, or on the trail. People and horses are social creatures and learning to ride in a group environment can benefit both you and your horse.
We work with the horse and owner on groundwork and starting under saddle. This includes lunging, roundpenning, desensitizing, leading, backing, flexing, yielding, introducing the horse to the saddle and bridle, mounting, first rides, and much more.
