Corinne fell in love with horses during a trail ride on her 8th birthday, and has spent her life studying the art of riding. Since receiving CHA certification in 1993, she has enjoyed teaching children and adults of all levels how to understand, ride and care for horses.
Our vision is to create a family-friendly environment where horse lovers of all ages can learn, thrive and grow. We are continually raising the standards of the equine industry, and safety is the number one priority at our barn.We strive to be the best of the best in safety, education and fun – both in this country, and in the world of equestrian educational facilities.
Our Premiere Summer Horse Camp program offers in-depth education for kids and teens (ages 5-7yrs and 8-15yrs).
