Our well trained staff goes to great lengths to increase the riders’ comfort level with the horses and their riding abilities. One of the principal aspects of our horseback program is that we familiarize riders with the horse as an animal to be respected and cared for.

Riders may be asked to help with feeding and grooming of the horse to further their range of skills and abilities.

What is the difference between English and Western riding?

This is a common inquiry for people who are looking into horseback riding. Our riders have the option to learn English or Western.

Simply put, the main difference between the two styles is the equipment used and the movement of the horse. Although most riders tend to stick to a certain style of riding, both styles can be extremely rewarding.
