Your first encounter with the horses will be designed according to your needs. It will unfold without pressure or expectations. It might be you alone with the horse, or a group of horses. The time you need will depend on you and your horse. You will learn what your horse would like to receive from you and what they are willing to give back. We emphasize respect, cooperation and understanding. All you need is love for the horse and a desire to become a friend. A horse can show you who you are.
I have been receiving private instruction for the past 17 years from a natural horseman/race horse trainer and exercise rider with 45 years of experience. I now manage a stable of 14 hand picked horses trained according to techniques of natural horsemanship. Respect and understanding are the driving forces behind my horse/rider education process. With years of dedication to understanding horses and their riders I offer insight and solutions to riders of all levels. The ranch is unique and the experience is one of a kind. My horses are raised for this opportunity and are waiting to meet you.
You have kilometers of mountain trails through an old growth forest. The fresh air filled with the lovely songs of birds. Fifteen horses share the tree lined pastures that surround the stable and training ring. Two groomed gallop tracks and 11 kilometers of trails. Bring a smile and an open heart. There are many quiet and safe places where you can be alone...... with a thousand trees, a thousand birds, a thousand critters, and your own thoughts.
This experience unfolds at your pace. There are benefits for both the experienced rider and the beginner. You will only do what you are comfortable doing. A positive attitude is all you need.
