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.

Gain experience seeing your distances and prepaing your horse for each jump with confidence. This jumping clinic can fit the needs of beginner jumpers through 3 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.

The hosts were great! As an instructor, the owner is fabulous, one of the best teachers of best principles I've encountered. I went with my 11 year old niece and we were both engaged and really learning and having fun the whole time. The horses were lovingly cared for. When I mentioned the trainer's name to friends 60 miles away, they said she is one of the most well-respected instructors in the region. I'm glad of that because her approach is wise and experienced and she herself is a highly skilled rider.
