 Theresa Denham, ARICP certified in 1997. She teaches classical fundamental techniques to her riders. This prepares them for dressage, English, Western, jumping and trail riding.

She teaches through the second level, western, jumping and saddle seat on gaited horses.  Theresa specializes in helping the rider understand biomechanics of horse and rider. This in turn develops a secure seat, kind hands, and excellent use of natural riding aids. She teaches the riders to use their body to communicate with the horse, so that both horse are rider feel secure.  Theresa also teaches you to handle and show your weanling, yearling and halter horse.     To inquire about lessons with Theresa click here

Training - Training schedule is filled for the remainder of 2008 Show season. 1 opening coming Fall of 2008 . Deposits of first month training will hold your fall spot now.

Our training program is tailored to suit your needs.  Goals will be discussed and the program will be custom tailored. Theresa also specializes in gait issues, bitting and saddle issues, and behavioral issues with your horse. 

Basic fees for training are $725.00 per month which includes your board, one lesson a week, training 5 days a week and high quality feed.  Early bird discount of $50.00 given when bills are paid in full by the 10th of each month.

Show: We  start, train, finish and show.   Riders will also have the opportunity to show their own horses as much as they would like. Our goal is to train YOU and your horse for success in the show ring. All horses  that are started here will have outdoor trail time when under saddle. This is important for building confidence and clearing their mind whether for show or trail.  Our riders gain satisfaction of gaining skills to do it themselves at both A shows and local fun shows

Trail:  For those interested in a trail horse only,  we cover many miles with your horse. Our goal is to work with your horse through and around obstacles, and give him the experience he needs to be a safe, sound trail horse. Depending on his age this process may be completed at our facility, or it may be a 'work in progress'. 1 Weekly lesson and  a minimum of 2 trail rides with the owner are included in this package.
