What Sets Us Apart? 

SAFETY

Our #1 priority is the safety of everyone and every horse that walks through our "doors".  Horses are large domesticated wild animals with instincts.  While our horses are specifically selected, trained, and exercised for the role they fill, no horse is 100% "bombproof". Our safety procedures, as well as our compliance with PATH International's protocols, are implemented to create a safe and stress-free environment for our horses which provides a safe and fun environment for our guests. Our staff is well-trained to facilitate quality, safe interaction between horse and visitor.

INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY

We believe in adapting to the needs of individual riders and foster a loving and supportive barn community as well as positive relationships with the community at large.  Founded on the desire for the differently-abled to be included in the "typical" community, we offer both able-bodied and therapeutic riding. Many of our able-bodied riders assist those in our therapeutic program.

Systematic Instruction

Taking a page out of the German Equestrian Federation's book, our students learn more than how to ride.  Students focus on balanced horseback riding through systematic instruction for the well-being of the horse. Our text is the German "Principles of Riding" and our foundation is classical dressage. We aim for improvement in every lesson.

Learn more about our instructors and their qualifications on our "Staff" page.

EMPATHY

Everyone's journey, fears, and dreams are different. We foster a community of empathy that begins with our instructors. While we push for progress, we adapt to the needs of each particular child and strive to kindly guide each rider through their fears to discover the greatness within.
