We provide horseback riding lessons. Amor Ranch is waiting for you to come learn how to ride on our wonderful lesson horses.

Amor Ranch students learn horsemanship. How do horses think? What is the best way to act around horses? How do you bring in a horse from the pasture? How do you lead a horse? How do you brush the horse? How do you put on the saddle and bridle? What kind of care does a horse require? How does a horse learn? What does a horse like? What scares a horse?

Amor Ranch riders learn all about horses!

Amor Ranch offers private and group lessons. Groups consist of 2 to 3 riders.

What if you are a bit scared? No worries, many people are, and we can help you with that.

We take riders from 6 to any age after that!

    Ms. Nancy is a fantastic instructor! Our daughter was 10yo when she began lessons in Oct 2013, she is now 11yo and loves riding lessons with Ms. Nancy. Nancy has increased our daughter's confidence in the saddle and out. Nancy is a very skilled horseman and patient instructor. I would recommend any equine services Nancy has to offer!

    Nancy has been teaching my granddaughter and she is very professional and experienced. Very happy that we found her.

    Nancy Parks, owner/instructor, of Amor Ranch came recommended to me. I called Nancy to ask if I could meet with her before deciding to sign on with instruction, as there was a very special type of person I wished to find. As luck would have it, I hit the jackpot.

    Nancy is very kind, very thoughtful in her approach to teaching and has a knack for being able to approach a certain riding scenario from several different angles to find the language that will make things click for her student/s.

    I find Nancy to be a very calm instructor, and patient. She has a sincere passion for horses and for her students. I feel anyone who signs up with Nancy will be very happy with their results and find Nancy's joy to be quite catching.

    Nancy is a great riding instructor for kids or adults. Students learn the mechanics of riding as well as the language of horses. With students at varying skill levels, she carefully matches the horse to the rider unless, of course, the rider brings her own horse. Plus, she makes the lessons fun by giving students milestones to achieve as they progress in their training. Learning to ride, gaining the confidence to command a thousand pound horse has been an amazing experience for my son. He knew nothing about riding before coming to Amor Ranch. Nancy is a fabulous instructor, and I'd recommend her for students at any level.

    Nancy is a fantastic instructor whose lessons provide the right balance of instruction and fun. She is interested in how each individual student learns and tailors her lessons to match the needs and interests of every student--from serious competitive riders to those simply wanting to enjoy time with a horse.. As an older adult rider, I genuinely appreciate this style of instruction. One of the things I like best about Nancy's methods is that she supplements her riding lessons with books, videos, handouts and other materials about riding, training and horse behavior. Absolutely 5 stars!

    My daughter took lessons with Nancy at Amor Ranch. She has great horses for beginners on up. Love that she teaching the children proper balance and safety not only while in the saddle but also from the ground. Great foundation training. I highly recommend Amor Ranch.

    Nancy taught my daughter riding for over 6 years. She is very, very good with children and makes riding so much fun for them. She also teaches basic horse care so that her students understand how to care for a horse and the time and expense involved. Nancy is all about safety and wants to make sure that all of her students understand how to be safe with horses. I just started riding with her and am having so much fun. I had some bad experiences with horses when I was younger but Nancy has put me completely at ease. I ride with two other ladies and we have a blast. I highly recommend her as a riding instructor for children and adults as well. She has a real talent for teaching. I can't say enough good things about her!

    My daughter took lessons with Nancy when she was 11 years old and it was a wonderful experience. Nancy is very experienced and extremely patient with her students. Her horses are very versatile in riding English or Western. They are also very safe for beginning riders.
    I have since started taking lessons myself after not riding for over 20 years and I could not be happier!

    I sought formal riding instruction after age 40. I was looking for an instructor who was not only competent, but comfortable working with adults . I found both in Nancy Parks at Amor Ranch. Nancy delivers practical and solid instruction to both children and adults, and allows you to progress safely and comfortably at your own pace. I learned about grooming and equine health in addition to riding. Her horses and facility are great...and I would recommend her to anyone!!
