Our Team

When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life-anonymous 

Mr. Rocky

Assistant Instructor & Camp Counselor

"I work with all the little kids. I like to make sure everybody is safe and we have fun. I get everyone started; getting them comfortable & where they can control their horse before I move them up to Ms. Julia. I also work with the little "cowboys" getting them started on roping Ferdinand, our wooden steer, and then off horseback. We also rope the goats too!

I like to use games as my teaching method. They help riders work on balance, posture, control of the horse, & just getting the rider's confidence built. My favorite riding game is a version of Red-light-green-light with a twist.

Blue Dog is my Australian Heeler that joins me in almost every class I teach. She is friendly and usually greets all the farm guests before joining us in the ring or the trail. "

Ms. Julia

Lead Instructor & Program Coordinator

"Once a rider has proven they have the confidence and strength to handle themselves, they graduate to a class with me and their peers. I focus on more formal application and repetition that benefits a rider's muscle memory. I also work with the riders who want to rock it in the show arena!

My teaching methods revolve around the "why" of practical application because it's my deepest belief that showing is, like trail, simply a byproduct of good horsemanship.

I started my own journey as a starry-eyed little with an irrational love for horses. Today, it's my pleasure to put my 20+ years of training and experience to work."
