We provide professional instruction for all ages and levels of experience. Whether you're interested in becoming a serious show ring competitor or simply wish to enjoy casual riding on the trails, we work hard to ensure that every rider reaches their full potential and accomplishes their personal goals.
We Specialize in Saddleseat style of riding.
Saddle Seat riding is an English style of riding (as are Hunt Seat and Dressage), but it is a uniquely American style of riding used primarily on American Saddlebred , Morgan and Arabian, horses.
Saddle Seat riding is done "on the flat" only, (meaning no jumping), they are shown at a walk, trot, and canter, and sometimes at five gaits. Saddleseat riding is all about animation. The horse should have a high head carriage with an arched neck, and lots of "action" or high-stepping feet. The ultimate goal in Saddle Seat riding is a truly thrilling performance. A saddle seat horse should be thrilling to watch; extremely elegant, classy, and stylish.
