Riding Out: Training Your Horse

Arizona    California    Idaho   Montana

TEC does NOT offer horse rentals or guided trail rides.

See our Pony Pals for trail practice using our horses (Option 2)

Mare's first trail ride-3 yrs old

We like to keep things interesting for both horses and students- so we take advantage of our beautiful location and head out to the woods usually once or twice a week.  There is a popular spot for horses and riders of all levels about a half hour north of the TEC facility.  We ride rain or shine!

Not only is hitting the trails fun but it also addresses a lot of what we’ve worked on at the facility:

It’s a great way to condition both horse and rider.
It exposes horse and rider to different elements.
It is a great way to use all of the “charm school” goals in a “real life” setting.
Awesome mental stimulation to “expect the unexpected.”
Gives your horse a chance  to trailer to a new location - but still maintain respect from your horse.
A great opportunity for your horse to practice standing patiently tied to a trailer.
You never know what you’ll encounter- from wildlife, to off road vehicles to other horses.
