   Our training program is customized to meet each horse & rider’s goals whether that is showing or pleasure riding. Horses in full training will be worked, looked after and groomed throughout the week by our staff. Horses are trained in a calm, yet assertive manner yielding a well behaved & happy horse! If your horse requires special medical care, we will attend to everything. Lead trainer Tara Wentz-Goosley is a USEF licensed judge in Saddlebred & Saddle Seat Equitation and has trained multiple World, National & Regional champions and takes a personal approach to each horse & riders needs. Assistant Trainer Kirby Tapper is talented, encouraging and extremely dedicated to achieving the best for each horse & rider team.

    We also offer several opportunities for new students looking to get more involved in competing or wanting to have their own horse with our Academy Program. This is a wonderful option for riders just starting out showing in Academy that would like to purchase their own horse or lease one of our great lesson horses to reserve them for the show season. They have the benefit of learning on and competing with a horse perfectly suited to them for an affordable rate. Leasing your choice of lesson horses secures the same horse teammate for the student. The Academy division is a designed to give beginning show riders an opportunity to compete against their peers on a level playing field in which horses are not judged and must be part of an active lesson program. To ensure that we are being true to the spirit of the Academy division,  ALL of our Academy horses will be used in our lesson program. However, we like to select riders or drivers that will compliment the horse to reinforce positive behavior.

   Our staff also organizes all of the vetting, farrier and dental work for the entire barn. We welcome a variety of breeds and enjoy the diversity! The barn is open 7 days a week from 8:00 am till 9:00 pm. Training & lessons are available Tuesday-Sunday, no lessons or training on Mondays. Day camp runs on Mondays during the summer months. We are closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day, New Years Day, and Easter.
