Smith Equestrian provides a wide range of western riding lessons from beginners just starting to explore the horse world to advanced western equitation students headed for the show pen. We have provided lessons to all ages...from 4 year old first time lead line lessons to 74 year old clients just wanting a refresher. We also provide basic instruction in gymkhana and work with you to tune up your western rail horse.
Lessons are centered around the student’s goals….whether it be competition or simply regaining confidence and overcoming fear. There is no agenda...rather the emphasis is on creating a team of rider and horse. Each lesson is custom tailored to the student, the needs of both horse and rider at that particular moment in time, and the physical circumstances as they present themselves. All lessons provide time on the ground laying the groundwork for a successful partnership as well as time in the saddle.

Smith Equestrian occupies the private trainer's portion of a larger horse boarding facility and frequently we have our own independent horse boarding available. We are a small operation, operating separately and independently from the larger boarding facility that surrounds us.
With a maximum of only 8 horses in our care at any given time, we are able to provide specialized, individual attention and care for your equine partner. All boarded horses are housed inside box stalls at night and hand walked to individual turnout paddocks every morning (weather permitting) where they spend most of the day. This twice a day individual attention allows us to do evaluations on all the horses as they are moved and check for any medical issues and/or concerns that may need to be addressed.
Stalls and turnout paddocks are cleaned daily and stalls are bedded with rehydrated wood pellets. We provide blanketing/unblanketing, up to 3 flakes of hay twice a day, twice a year worming (so everyone is on the same schedule), and lots of love and kisses. We are also happy to feed any grain and/or supplements you provide.
All boarders have access to both indoor and outdoor arenas, pasture riding, two enclosed round pens, heated restroom, and heated viewing deck/lounge in the indoor arena.
Base price is $575/month with options for us to exercise your horse at additional pricing. Please contact us at 970-556-4914 to set up a private showing of the facility.
