Our training philosophy centers around the concept that a mentally-sound horse with a solid foundation will make the most fierce athlete and partner. With regard to one's horse, it doesn't matter what you can physically do with his/her body if we can't keep their mind clear for thinking and their heart open with a desire to learn more. Our training program is unique in that we cross-train all of our training horses regardless of their final occupation.

This training regime, along with our equine-centered daily schedule, enables us to keep all of our horses happy and willing to work, thus getting the most out of them each day. Our training involves quality consistent ground work combined with foundation reining training and schooling lower level dressage, with a touch of trail riding to keep our horses enjoying their job.

Some of these students will ride and show horses for the rest of their lives. Others will find new interests, go off to college, and continue on the journey of life. So for me, when I teach, I don’t just teach how to stay on a horse and make it look pretty. I teach life lessons. I teach confidence. I teach how to respect yourself. I teach how to respect others. I teach empathy. I teach determination. These are the skills I want my students to remember. I want them to look back 5-7 years down the road and remember that I taught them a life lesson that got them through a hard time; that I taught them not to give up on themselves and not to quit when life gets hard. I want to make impacts and teach lessons that go well beyond the arena, and lasts a lifetime.
