Under The Care And Instruction Of Our Top-Notch Local Riding Instructors – You And Your Horse Will Shine!

The experienced equestrian staff of the TFRS has been meticulously chosen to teach and safely prepare students to learn proper horsemanship in the discipline of choice from the ground up.  There is a place in our program for every level of riding and we work hard to meet the needs of each individual rider.

We are now proud members of CTHA Certified Therapy Horse Association and Members of ARIA American Riding Instructor Association.
