Our primary focus is on the rider/handler increasing their mind and body awareness as they affect the horse. We believe that if the horse is opposing the handler, there is something the handler needs to adjust physically or mentally. We help each student in understanding the balance of relaxation, knowledge, timing and assertion.
Since our attention is mostly on body awareness, the discipline doesn't really matter. We do have extensive knowledge of breed disciplines: hunt seat and western pleasure, saddle seat and halter, Alan also drives in harness. Our personal preference is dressage and most of our riders use dressage or all purpose saddle. AND, now Leigh can work with you in Western Dressage! Haul your horse to Joy Ranch or, sometimes, we will come to you!
We offer full service care, conditioning, rehab/training programs on a limited, individual basis at our private facility. Please contact us for more information.
