The Good Shepherd Ranch, LLC.
~Guaranteed Trail & Driving Horses~
Here is a small description on our Instructing program.
Horsemanship lessons are for a person of any age wanting to learn how to ride, or for someone wanting more skills with horses. We also have great activities here at the Ranch for team building/corporate events.
We can work with you & your horse, your new horse you just purchased or if you don't yet have a horse you can use some of ours!
Just starting out with horses for the 1st time, or If you’re experienced, & need further schooling we can help you at any level of experience. Anything from trail riding to performance, we can help you improve on your skills with horses.
Everyone can benefit from lessons regardless of experience level. To work together as a team, horse & rider must gain each others trust & respect from the ground up, a process much easier when an instructor is there to help.
You can’t control a horse from his back, if you don’t have a willing partnership on the ground first.
In order to improve a horse we work on getting the rider better.
We work on improving your riding skills, to make you a safe competent rider so your horse is safe as well.
We will help to improve your knowledge on what is needed for riding & having a horse, including everyday care from feeding to maintenance of your horse, health, saddles, tack & more!
We offer multiple lesson discounts (if you pay for a month of lessons in advance), which includes 1-2 hour trail rides with our more advanced students who have completed beginner classes.
