Parker Valley Farm – Horses Raise Great Kids
At Parker Valley Farm and School of Horsemanship we feel it is important for the young and old horse lovers to learn there is much more to horsemanship than riding. We feel that part of the partnership between horse and rider is also learning to care for these grand animals. Along with learning to ride our riders will also learn how to groom them, tack them, properly cool them down as well as how to safely handle them in all situations.
We teach a traditional style of English riding known as Saddleseat, as well as Western Riding. Both focusing on a balanced seat which is the basis of all styles of riding.
We strive to teach each individual to accomplish their personal riding goal whether it be to some day enter into competition or just ride for the pure enjoyment of becoming a partner with a horse.
