of awareness and seat control

A helmet is mandatory for students between 5-12 years of age. Its advisable for all others. Thanks

The objective is to progress the horse through suppleness and lightness of movements with acceptance of hackamore or bridle. Moves and speed of maneuvers are all indicative of the horse's genetics, heart and environmental conditions. Higher level skills will be dependent on the horses ability and willingness. I train through Lyons rules of not getting hurt, not getting the horse hurt and finishing the horse calmer than when I started the session with consistency, persistence, patience, experience and awareness .

While having Equine Liability and Care and Control Insurance you can rest assure that your horse’s care and well-being is as important as its training development. Here at Running H Performance Horses LLC our dedication in training horses for the weekender to the professional competitor is to provide a horse willing and able for the rider to show and/or have a joyous and fulfilling ride.

Facilities: Due to our family members health concerns I can no longer help individuals to ride or help in their horse's training. Thank all the great people whom I have met along with their horses. My wife and I really enjoyed the time spent with you and we hope to someday start again.
