Val specializes in cross country gymnastics. This technique of teaching a  young horse to jump is a specialty that Val has developed over the years. This method builds confidence for both horse and rider, creating a great relationship of trust between horse and rider.





Deni Whiting has been involved with horses since she was able to balance on one, at about  two years old , who would've thought she would have grown up to be an I S RB biomechanics certified teacher! Her passion is helping riders improve their confidence, trust and partnership with their horses from the ground up. She  loves helping horses with issues like: my horse won't load, tie, standstill, respect my space. Deni helps you develop many skills to give a strong foundation for any discipline. She strongly believes in and teaches Natural Horsemanship, a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse's natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses do not learn through fear or pain, but rather from pressure and the release of pressure.


"It is only when we slow down that we truly consider the horse. This is a risk but if you're willing to take it,the possibilities are endless!"

Terrie Douglas

Contact:  (530) 342-3577



Terrie specializes in the beginning, the foundation of riding, the seat, but works with riders of any level. If you just have not ridden in a long while and wish to begin again, or if you have never been on a horse before, or if you want to improve your riding, maybe finally get those changes, she can help you. The basics, the foundation of good riding is all the same. Whether you wish to learn to ride to go out on trails, just have fun or you have dreams of competing and jumping 2m, the basics are all the same. It's called a 'seat' and having a correct one makes you more secure and your horse will be happier too.


Terrie has ridden most of her life but began a more serious study of Classical Dressage in 2000 under the training of Don Paulhus. Don is a Classical Dressage trainer, his mentor and trainer was a Head Rider (Oberbereiter) at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. Don is one of a handful of his students that is certified to carry that training tradition forward. Terrie has also studied various forms of natural methods of working with horses, one of which she uses with her own horses as it has made a huge difference in them. In her teaching, she uses the classical training and teaching method she has learned, but will happily add in how to longe, general handling, even building a relationship, as desired. Terrie has also helped many 'back to riding' adults overcome their fears of riding as well. Even though what she teaches is based in dressage and biomechanics it is the very foundation of riding, so whether you slap on a western saddle to hit the trails or a close contact to crest a 5 foot fence, a seat is a seat is a seat. Terrie happily shares what she knows and helps those that want to learn or just work through fear. A correct seat is a more secure and more effective seat. It allows the horse to move freely and willingly. Less is SO much more!
