“No drama, just solid, careful training.”

Katie has started riding one of our mares. Rakaia is a premium Oldenburg mare by Riverman who had been previously started under saddle, and then had time off to produce a lovely premium foal by Rousseau. Katie, with a great deal of tact, restarted this mare, and very quickly not only regained her previous level of performance, but exceeded it! This kind of progress can only be achieved by a rider who has experienced a wide variety of horses and who has learned to bring out the best in each individual. No drama, just solid, careful training. Katie is the best! ~Lloyd Lamp
