Performances and parties are available for birthdays, family reunions, corporate parties, summer parties or for whatever event calls for a celebration. These performances are unique and exciting and will keep your guests talking about it for years to come. Have you ever seen a horse paint? Well these horses do and they love to demonstrate their artistic abilities. This talented group of horses can play basketball, play Mozart on a large piano, bow, kneel down to say prayers, sit up like a dog and bake a cake. Okay, so they can’t bake a cake, but they can do everything else and much more. The best part about it, is our horses love to perform! Performances and parties can be tailored to meet your individual needs, including themed parties. We can even provide the decorations and cake. Performances can be done on dirt or grass, at your location or you can come to ours.
Training horses to do tricks is a great way to build a strong, trusting relationship with them. Without the correct knowledge of how to trick train, it may end up in a lifetime of struggles and frustration. We can help provide you with the correct learning tools to be successful at trick training your horse, from the basic answering “yes” and “no”, to the more advanced bow and pedestal work. Trick training is a great way to have fun and connect with your horse; resulting in a respectful, content and confident horse.
Ground work is the key to developing a cooperative, polite attitude from your horse through good horsemanship or natural horsemanship. By becoming the alpha horse you will gain respect and trust from your horse while they look to you for leadership. We teach ground work using these 7 exercises.
1. Desensitizing the horse by introducing them to different
circumstances, such as a tarp over their back, ropes being
tossed gently on their back and legs, walking over bridges,
having noisy and unfamiliar objects around them. By gaining
their trust you build a strong bond with your horse.
2. Move forward and backward on a line with just simple finger
movements cuing the horse.
3. Being able to move the horse in any direction with just the
touch of a finger, rewarding them by releasing pressure when
4. Being able to drive a horse anywhere we want, by standing
beside them or behind them.
5. Starting with the simple circle game of lunging, we build up skills
that will eventually allow us to work off-line at liberty and
advance to higher levels of games.
6. To get horses to feel comfortable going through gates, over
jumps, and under things, we need to introduce them to
different obstacles. By doing jumps, going through water, under
and over bridges, we build a trust with them that helps them
feel safe in many different situations.
7. Being able to move the horse side to side from wherever you
are standing as you cue them.
These 7 exercises should be able to be performed on the ground and on the back of a horse, with or without tack.

We then advance onto posting the trot, sitting the trot, and jumping over fences. Safety and control are emphasized at all times. Students can excel at their own level and speed.
