Thank You for visiting our website. Our facility is dedicated to the education of the horse and rider. Helping them to create a language between them that helps build a special bond and understanding like no other. Learning how to enjoy and communicate with our horses in playful ways with lots of fun challenging obstacles and choreographing patterns and adding music. Soon the rider begins to develop FEEL and the horse LIGHTNESS and COLLECTION. This is your first step in your journey to becoming a HORSEMAN and your horse a willing PARTNER.
