Browse these horseback riding lessons with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Arroyo Grande.
Loving kindness is essential and encouragement is the key factor to training any animal , not discipline or abuse. I can even train cats, I have several trained to walk on leash's, not easy . The horse responds to kindness and rewards such as carrot to get their full attention and willingness to do the task you are trying to teach it .

Silver Shadow Training Services. Looking for affordable professional horse training or private riding lessons? Eager to learn more about communicating clearly and efficiently with your horse? Excellent! My name is Nikki and I have been successfully training and showing my own horses from an early age and have years of experience in professional training and lessons. I work in nearly all disciplines, such as: - Barrel Racing - Pole Bending - Gymkhana/Contesting - Pleasure (Both Western and English) - Trail - Hunter - Jumper - Equitation - Hunter-Hack - Halter - Colt Starting - Basic Ground Work - Behavior Correction Additional Services- - Farm/Ranch Sitting - New Horse Finding - Horse Show/ Event Coaching I am willing to work with any age, any breed, on any level. From never having been on a horses back to fine tuning for the upcoming show season. I have specialized in everything from off the track TBs, to Arabians and Quarter Horses. I have spent the last several years serving clients all across Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. I offer a more unique service, in the fact that I actually go to most of my clients. I like to give people who may not have a trailer or just don't have time to haul to a trainer a chance to get work done on their horses. My current projects range from young children just starting, to horses with bad habits or that need behavior correction. I can work with your horse one-on-one, with both of you together, or provide a lesson horse. I am also looking for any facility that would like to start up a lesson or training. I would like property to work off of, and possibly host and manage shows there also, as I have done in the past. I am not looking to lease, but to work out a deal where we could split profits. I would be more than happy to work with you on prices, so that you get a fair cut for the use of the property. Excellent references available upon request! I keep my rates competitively low and offer many different payment programs. Multiple hour sessions and group rates are available. Feel free to contact me anytime!

Currie has a true gift with horses that is amazing to watch. Not only is she a great horse trainer, she has a wonderful report with her students and clients that make a difference in their lives. She is what I consider a "full service" trainer, with experience in many horse and riding disciplines. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
