The Trish Franks School of Riding, LLC has been offering quality instruction in hunt seat, reining, horsemanship and dressage since 1992. We have lesson horses and ponies all types of students (young and old).

“We teach safe horsemanship to horse-loving children & adults in a safe, healthy environment, regardless of their economic status.”  And we hope that students will learn some of “life’s other little lessons” along the way. ”      – Trish Franks Program Founder / Head Coach
