Opportunity to learn, build confidence, help horses that oridinarily would not have a second chance at life. We do a lot of medical here and you can gain insight into this by being here.
Mornings after feed is best to work with horses. Afternoon time allows for someone to do online study until evening feed so if your going to school this is a good way to do it and help horses at the same time.

Covered ArenaWe are in need of sponsor to help us get in a covered arena so that we can continue training out of the weather. Oklahoma winds are horrible, heat and cold takes its toll so we need an area to be able to work horses that is more comfortable. This will allow us to also hold programs that we have here.
