Trail Riding


Competitive Trail

     We are expanding our training operation now to include training the horse owner and rider with their horse.  The training is to help the rider and horse to feel comfortable in riding together in all types of trail riding adventures. Some of you may not know this but we have been trail riding for 70 years! In those years we have trail ridden in numerous parts of the United States, from the NE in Vermont to the West Coast in California and Hawaii. We have trail ridden from the beaches of the Carolina's to the Smokies and Rocky Mountains.

     We would now like to offer to you our knowledge and help prepare you and your horse for all the terrain, obstacles and trails that await you.  The trail rides that we will be offering in this training will be terrain that you may have never experienced.  They will not be bridle paths or meadow rides, as we have the privilege to live in the heart of some of the most breathtaking vista's you will see. You and your horse will cross water, logs, bridges, maneuver up and down all degrees of incline of gorges and ravines. The difficulty of the rides will be in according to your riding skills and your horses training. The slide show below will give you an idea of the journey you and your horse can experience when training with my wife, son and I.

     We have not only had the experience on many trails but have been the trainers of numerous World, International and State Champion horses in divisions such as; Equitation; stock seat and English, Competitive rides, show arena; novice, amateur and youth.

Call for details and let us discuss with you your hopes and desires as an equestrian!   H.T. Derickson 606-663-4464
