You can ride safely, confidently, and without fear

The most common thing I hear from folks is “I’ve had a bad experience with a horse. Now I’m nervous and scared about riding, but I really want to ride. Can you help me?” Yes I can! My non-traditional training method carries right over to riding horses. I can teach you to ride safely, confidently, and without fear.

Passing the grandfather test

AbigailWhen Abigail was 7 years old, she decided she wanted to learn to ride horses. Her grandfather is very protective of her and did a lot of research on horseback riding. He was very concerned to find out about the number of accidents that happen between horses and their riders each year. A friend of theirs recommended me. She assured them that I could teach his granddaughter and keep her safe.

He was skeptical at first, and being a retired military officer, he wasn’t shy about challenging me with the question, “Can you teach my granddaughter to ride safely?” I said, “Yes sir, I can.” He gave me the opportunity to teach Abigail. She’s been riding with me for over three years now. Here’s what her dad, Riley, had to say about the experience:

Gray has infinite patience for kids who are willing to give their best effort. He instills the same traits of patience, honesty, and hard work in both his horses and the students he teaches.

All ages are welcome

LessonsI have students as young as four years old all the way to retirees. Age makes no difference – all it takes is a willingness and commitment to learn. I’m committed to helping people and horses reach their full potential – average is not an option.

Take a free discovery ride

My training and teaching method isn’t for everyone – it’s a lot different than what most trainers do. I invite you to come out to my place to discover for yourself if you think my method  will fit you. I don’t pressure horses and I don’t pressure people. But, you won’t know until you give it a try.


Contact me to set up a time for a free lesson and discover how you can ride with confidence. I’ll also be happy to provide you with references of folks that have taken lessons with me.
