We have a working western horse ranch. At times we take on a special person interested in developing their horse training skills. We have some of the most beautiful canyons and mountains for our horse training areas. We can help you from most beginner and intermediate skill levels. We have enjoyed several students who have a large amount of horse jumping background and like to see your skilled practiced here. Dressage is akin to many of the skills we practice with our colts. We are on the boarder of the Navaho and the Ute Indian reservations so there is much cultural diversity here. Camping trips are a highlight for many also. If you have a serious desire to learn about training horses we would like to talk to you. If you would rather come and just be spoiled, the fee we charge you is only $500/ week
