I’ve often said there is nothing better for the inside of the man, than the outside of the horse.

A note from Our Founder, Kim Szymoniak;
I am fully insured and a CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) certified instructor and I specialize in western riding lessons for youth 10 and up and adults. I’ve been involved with horses and riding for over 40 years and have been teaching the art of western riding for the past 20 years to all walks of life.
I have spent countless hours studying the methods and working with of some of the best equestrians and trainers in the country, watching their videos, reading their books, attending their clinics, seminars and demonstrations and taking lessons from some of the best horsemen and women in the business.
I have learned so many valuable tips from a variety of trainers which I have found to be especially useful because not all equestrians and horses are alike. Every horse and every person has different dispositions and personalities and what works with one horse or rider may not work for another.
From the time I started riding, I was never a believer in training or teaching with forceful methods. I was practicing the concepts of what is known today as “Natural Horsemanship” long before the term Natural Horsemanship came about.
I’m constantly looking for ways to increase my knowledge of horses, training and teaching. I am a continuous student of horsemanship, believing that horsemanship is a journey, not a destination.
I love barrel racing, natural horsemanship, working with horses and helping people where ever and when ever I can.
I’m excited to share with you the many tips and methods I’ve learned over the past 40 years.
