Now as your browsing the site you can chat with me if I am at my computer but I can read it when I get back to my pc and reply. Sometimes I can understand the person on the other end of the phone depending on where I am standing or the voice mail if left.
The low price monthly lessons has ended. Lessons per hour are $20 or $120 per month for 2 lessons a week for one month. That is $5 less per lesson than paying for them one by one. Or 1 Lesson a week per month is $60. There are come rules to anyone paying ahead as you are paying for the month these do not carry over unless you have discussed with me prior as I plan out when I will open up leasing which takes the horse off of being for lessons. If you do not communicate to me of a day you may miss that day will not be made up for the next month.
Leasing a horse you get to come out get a lesson as well as come out whenever you like as you get more confident if adult can come out to ride on your own as you become confident or with limited help. Leasing a horse you can learn more aspects of keeping a horse.
Cleaning up the site some more to make it easier to navigate since I have a break from my Computer Science Classes until next year I figure I need to put to use what I am learning in school. I still am giving lessons and Leasing $150/month for you to have a more in depth lesson for aspiring horse owners or a refresher to relax and re learn what you know.
The website may seem cluttered for a bit or go down this is because I am moving a new feature to this main website. I am hoping for a smooth move but that rarely happens.
Lessons are $50 per month That's for 2 lessons a week=8 Lessons a month. Horses are on the small side largest horse can only carry approx 200lbs. 1-2 riders max.
Cocoa has moved out so I can now re open the boarding pen.
Prices are still as they have been. $150 Partial Care with lean too attached to pen. Owner cleans the pen and feeds the horse with their hay and grain. Owner turns out horse. We currently have rye but we are planning on seeding with Teff grass and or perennial next year. We only take in one horse.
Full Care -- $300 We feed and give hay to horse as well as cleaning of the pen, water tub. We turn out horse for you as well as can provide dewormers, and grooming. Please inquire.
No Stallions allowed and all horses must have current coggins, deworming and vaccination record. Inquire and I can send the boarding agreement for those interested.
I have been wanting to do this for some time now. Reason is that I was lucky to have a chance to learn to ride and learn to train by trading off cleaning horse's stalls buckets, and grooming. Even helped in cleaning the feed room and hay room. In turn I learned so much about different disciplines from Western to Dressage.
I would love to give someone a chance to learn about horses who couldn't afford it otherwise. Since I only have a limited number of horses I can only allow one person. Age is 15 years of age and up. I can provide helmets for certain sizes. Close toed shoes a must (no sneakers as they can grip to the stirrup which can cause a safety hazard) First week(end) it will be allowed but person will be riding bareback (no saddle) or no riding at all. There is also a weight limit on the horses 140lb Max weight for riding. I can still teach anyone just not the riding portion.

$15/hr lessons ------ Family included as you don't have to know how to ride to love horses.
$75 weekly lease. Depending on the Age of the Child and ONLY for summer Child or Children can come by for lessons and learn how to care for horse with only instructor supervision. This is on a limited time basis as I will only be around for one month.
$200 Same as above but the horse is used by only the family or friends of lessee instead as the other is weekly and this one is for a whole month.
FYI. Things are and will be changing. Boarding, and Lessons will be phased out. Leasing will be still around and, visitation will also be around. Both services are to be revamped. You do not get to walk freely around.It probably could get new name as I start to change things around as we move towards our miniature cattle. Sadly as I am not able to be around as much as I want due to many reasons I won't get into. This doesn't mean my mission is gone it just has to be put in the back burner with the rains keeping everything soaked me trying to bring in new horses to help or to help others in learning. Mostly I will be trying to get the tack I still own sold. Trying to find out about shipping costs so I can ship them out to people so I can place Paypal up.
For the summer I am looking for an instructor or someone who would like to use my horses for lessons.
We are open to either like our last instructor we divided the income as to pay for the use of the horses. We can if you are willing to help out on the place. Be aware that we do not just have horses we do have miniature Bull and heifer.
We can provide all you need. We have helmets for children and adults, saddles, bridles, different training aids, lunge whip, lunge line, round pen. Use of two horses + another if we allow.
If you would like to know more please email me to know more.
The work can range from cleaning stalls/pens, helping feed all animals, and help fix fences.
