Training philosophy

We believe that the emphasis of running a training barn should be quality not quantity. By keeping the training barn small it allows us to ride and school each horse personally rather than having an assistant/working student ride and it allows small personal detail oriented lessons without the stress of a crowded arena.

We have found that often it is beneficial for us to pre-ride a clients horse to either demonstrate it jumping up or simply to have the kinks worked out prior to a lesson. This is a complimentary service and is welcomed! We provide the option of full service grooming which allows our clients the flexibility to ride without the time restraints of grooming before and after riding.

We try to have a nice balance of going to an “A” show once a month while attending smaller shows with the young horses or less advanced clients or just good cheap practice to stay tuned.
