Riding vacation jumping

Improve Your Jumping Clinic in Texas

Ride Overview

Whether you’re preparing for a cross-country riding vacation or honing your skill for the show ring, this riding vacation jumping clinic will give you the foundation for fun and successful jumping. Learn to balance in a fluid, non-interfering position, and maintain a fine-tuned connection with your horse over a variety of obstacles. Learn to see your distances and prepare your horse for each jump with confidence. This jumping clinic can fit the needs of beginner jumpers through 3 1/2 feet, or Novice level Eventing. Spend your afternoons enjoying the beauty of the ranch’s trails.

The riding center where the clinic takes place is tucked away among the oak and juniper of the lovely, rolling Hill Country of Texas. The pleasant atmosphere of the ranch is in keeping with its tranquil setting as is the owner’s quiet and gentle approach to horses and students alike. Your hostess, who is a native of the area, is thoroughly familiar with the varied and abundant flora and fauna to be seen on the trails as well as the country’s history.  You stay in beautifully designed, spacious cabins distant enough from one another for privacy.  Meals are in the headquarters building which was the main house of the old ranch.

 

Accommodations & Food

Guests stay in old style Texas cabins which have been recently built from native cedar and limestone. They provide a quaint and private sanctuary far from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The cabins are nestled among oaks and junipers well spaced from one another. Each one welcomes you with oak floors, a spacious fireplace, central air and heat, kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom and wide porches from which to view the surrounding countryside. Guests can enjoy the ranch Jacuzzi, pool or have spa services (at extra cost).
Breakfast provisions are in your cabin so you can enjoy a leisurely meal of your choice. Lunch and dinner are served in the main lodge where the atmosphere is
informal, relaxed and friendly.
