Grooming and groundwork (no riding) 

Ground lessons can provide you with self-awareness, communication skills, building trust, social awareness, anxiety and stress reduction to name a few.  You and your instructor will work together to meet your individual goals.  



Interested in spending a few hours a week at the barn helping others? Volunteering can counteract the effects of stress and anxiety. Helping and working with others can have a profound effect on your overall psychological well-being. Nothing relieves stress better than a meaningful connection to another person or a horse.


Riding Sessions for Individuals/Group/Family 

Riding horses can aid in emotion awareness, establishing trust, communication skills, increase sequence memory, balance and body awareness to name a few.  If you have never ridden or are an accomplished rider you and your instructor will work together to meet your individual goals.  Learn to rope, barrel race, trail ride or maybe join the mounted color guard team.
