Horseback Riding Jobs

We offer a quality riding program on well-schooled horses under the supervision of skilled instructors. Our facilities include two barns housing twenty+ horses, five rings, acres of pasture and extensive trails.

We teach the sound fundamentals of hunt-seat riding and are not satisfied with merely providing an opportunity to ride. The horses are our own, many of them raised and schooled at High Rocks, and include safe, quiet, beginner mounts as well as challenging horses that require the efforts of the more experienced rider.
