 Equestrian Training  


Has your child always dreamed of learning to ride?

We provide a resource to students, parents, and guardians utilizing the independent study model for home schooling through a charter or private affidavit. Kathleen Elliot is an ARIA Certified Riding Instructor and 10X World Champion in Western Dressage. Her program offers individualized training in all aspects of the equestrian sport. We emphasize Western Dressage and Traditional Dressage.

We partner with multiple charter schools and tailor our lessons to fit the full spectrum of ages, experience, grade level, skill, training, and interest.

Whether you are a seasoned equestrian athlete seeking to enhance your riding ability or you have never ridden a horse, we offer an opportunity to explore a broad range of equine education topics to our students. We provide the chance to learn about these gentle giants while developing practical equine skills, such as tacking up, grooming, handling, and riding.

Correct horse riding is a great way to get in shape. It enhances both physical fitness and flexibility. Our quiet dependable horses are great for of any children of any age, including those who may be afraid to ride.

We offer many different riding disciplines for our Charter students.

Horseback riding lessons help teach the responsibilities of horse ownership.  Riding lessons also give students the opportunity to see if they enjoy riding and to consider making horses a commitment in their lives.  Kathleen can also provide an opportunity to lease a horse or to board a horse under instructor supervision.  This gives the potential horse owner (and his horse) the maximum opportunity for success!

We provide a variety of educational experiences in addition to riding lessons.  Adults are encouraged to watch other lessons, horse training and other activities on the grounds. We offer a fun and educational experience to students.


Because we recognize that many home schooled students need flexibility in their schedule, Kathleen offers classes/lessons on a flexible basis.  Classes can be scheduled in most cases Monday-Friday anytime between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.  Students also can schedule lessons on weekends by prior arrangement.  Call us at  951-288-0521 to schedule.  

We can accommodate students of all ages and grade levels.  Please click here to learn about our riding lessons for students with special needs.
