Horsemanship Program


At Prairie Oak Ranch, Horsemanship is mandatory and cutting is an option. It is important to Cub that all students young and old alike gain confidence in themselves, allowing them freedom to enjoy their riding experience on the ranch. Throughout her career, she has stressed the ABCs of teaching: Awareness, Balance, and Confidence.

Once the basics have been achieved and both Cub and the client are comfortable, rides in the mountains are available. Mountain rides are another opportunity to enhance the students riding skills while enjoying the scenery and fresh air that the mountain experience has to offer.

The lesson horses used in the Prairie Oak Ranch program could return to cutting competition at any given time. We have enough horses of various levels that they are not used every day allowing them to remain fresh and looking forward to their job.
