SmoothRide4u Gaited Horsemanship Clinics

Happy Horses. Happy Riders.
Achieve Harmony between Gaited Horse and Rider.

Do you need to tune up for an upcoming horse show, trail riding; or to focus on improving your riding skills or smooth out your horse's gait?

Our horsemanship is structured towards recreational pleasure riding whether for show or trail, with a main emphasis on safety, balance, gentle techniques and personal enjoyment.
