The Ranch provides quality instruction for beginner through intermediate riders in English and Western with an emphasis on Natural Horsemanship.
Natural Horsemanship is a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse’s natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses do not learn through fear or pain, but rather from pressure and the release of pressure.
