Paso Fino Horsemanship and Riding Lessons

Private Riding lessons and consultation are available for people new to the Paso Fino breed who want to learn to properly ride a Paso Fino or Gaited Horse.

Riding lessons are a great way for an amateur owner who wants to tune-up their riding skills with their own Paso Fino or gaited horse.

Riding lessons from a experienced senior certified gaited horse judge are invaluable for youth or adult riders who want to improve their show equitation and horsemanship skills.

Other reasons for private professional riding or training lessons are for owners who want to improve their horse's gait and way of going, and who want to improve their show ring performance procedures.

SmoothRide4u Gaited Horsemanship Clinics

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?

Group clinics are ideal for this. Consider hosting a horsemanship clinic with Lynn Gallup in your area. An average clinic size is usually 10 - 12 horse and rider teams, but may vary upon location. Auditors are often included. Mini-Clinics may be held at Gracewood Farm with 3-4 people minimum.

Private horseback riding lessons are usually available on one of the days before and/or after a clinic at the host site or in the general area. Check with your clinic host on scheduling additional lessons on your gaited horse. Paso Finos, Mountain Pleasure Horses and other naturally gaited breeds are welcome at Lynn Gallup's Smooth Ride 4u clinics.

Paso Fino and Rocky Mountain Horse Video Appraisal

This is a relatively inexpensive way to get a horse appraised and assessed for their value, aptitude, conformation, gait and qualities for the purposes of insurance, breeding, proposed stallion selection, sale or purchase.

This appraisal does not replace a pre-purchase exam by a veterinarian for soundness if for insurance or purchase reasons, but helps to establish a market value/experienced opinion as needed. Please note there can be NO conflict of interest with PFHA show dates; 30 day PFHA rule applies.

Video Evaluation Consultation Fee: $45 for one horse; $35 each additional horse same video; includes a written evaluation. For return of video tape, add $5 for shipping and handling.
