Friday Practice Rides

One-hour practice rides are now offered every Friday evening at 5:30 for $30. These supervised arena rides give students the opportunity to practice what they're learning in class in a relaxed setting. Sign up is available on a first come, first served basis, and reservations and prepayment are required to reserve your requested horse. Call 214-616-7983 or email for more information.

Please note, this is not a lesson. While these are supervised arena rides, riders should be able to get their horse ready by themselves and be able to control their horse with little to no instruction. 

Message from Capricorn

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.

In the new year we hope to offer some additional programs to help our students get the most out of their experience and relationship with horses. These will be another option to the 5-week group lessons we already offer.

With every year comes changes and as we begin 2013, you'll note that Chad will be teaching more of the group classes. We have also updated the class days/times and plan to open more classes as demand dictates. You'll also note that starting with the Winter II session, our 5-week session fees increase to $150 (instead of $120). In addition we will be making improvements to the structure of our helper program - details coming soon.

While we hope to be a better Capricorn this year, we're still Capricorn and will continue offering classes, birthday parties, scout clinics, trail rides, spring break and summer camps.

Please call us at (972) 530-1124 or (214) 616-7983 with any questions or concerns or email
