Service Description

Do any of these sound like you? -You love trail riding but aren't comfortable going alone. -You used to trail ride all the time with your old horse, but you've haven't tried it with this one.​ -You want to trail ride, but your horse doesn't. -You trail ride solo just fine, but have had problems with groups. -Your horse rides fine in groups, but has problems when left alone. -You want to trail ride with friends but aren't sure where to go or who to go with. -You want to trail ride, but don't know what to do if things go awry. We've heard it all and more from you over the years and are thrilled to provide you with our answer to all your trail riding challenges. Training on the Trail. We invite you to join us along with a small group of other existing and supportive clients for a monthly trail ride at equine friendly parks around Santa Clara County. We'll meet at the trail's parking lot, where we both will help you safely prepare for our ride before we head out for our adventure. With both Dana and Jason, along with our tried and true trail mounts guiding the group, each participant will have the support they need every step of the way. You'll practice the tools you've learned with us in the arena and use them under our supervision. We'll simulate the common challenges you may face when trail riding, including but not limited to, leaving the group or being left, riding together when horses have different speed, jigging, refusals, and more. When our ride is done we'll debrief and answer any questions that may arise. Don't forget to bring your lunch! This is available to existing clients only so if you haven't worked with us in the past but want to join in on the fun, we'll ask you to come do at least one lesson with us before you join.

Cancellation Policy

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to hold your place in an event. Requests to reschedule can be accommodated up to 2 weeks prior to the event. See details below. You can transfer your booking to another individual with 72 hours notice. We pride ourselves on providing extraordinary customer service to everyone that enters our gates. To that aim, we keep our clinics number small to ensure you get plenty of 1:1 support. We also keep our fees as low as we possibly can to make our events more accessible. Reschedule requests made within 2 weeks of an event are difficult to fill, and as such, are not transferable to another date unless we have an active waitlist for that event and are able to fill your spot. If you discover that you are unable to attend an event within the 2 week window, please reach out to us as soon as possible. We will do everything we can to help you fill your spot, but make no guarantees. This policy is one of the most generous in the industry and we appreciate your understanding.
