Natural Horsemanship group 8 week session

Our groups are small so we can spend more time with each one of our clients. Lessons welcome children and adults ages 6 and up. Instructors for any level of riding from beginner, intermediate to advanced riders. Our Lessons are based on the individual needs of the clients and their horse. Here at the Ranch you will learn Natural horsemanship riding.

No more pulling on the horse’s mouth and yanking them here and there. We teach you the proper seat and leg cues, which helps you stay properly in the saddle and have more control. You will feel more comfortable and so will your horse. The more you know the safer and more comfortable you are.

 This opportunity allows you to ride once a week on our ranch horses with others, while having fun and learning new skills that will take you to the next level. 

  • Next session Tuesdays 5:30-7:30pm.  $360 per rider.
