Our Name...

I've always had a heart for the underdog, the "dark horse." The one that's not expected to rise from the pack to win, place or even show. Dark Horse Equestrian Centre, Inc. was established to help people explore their potential, and to provide a non-judgmental environment where they can learn, grow, reach attainable goals, prove themselves, and surprise us all.

In the end Dark Horse Equestrian Centre, Inc. is more about life lessons than riding lessons, more about character than competition, and more about what people become, than what they've been.

Riding Lessons:

Our lesson program is a way that riders can enjoy the horses and continue learning year round. It allows them to enjoy the wonderful world of horses and ponies, all while learning to ride safely, and in balance with their horse. Whether riding for pleasure or show, we can help them achieve all their riding goals. We plan on attending several horse shows this year, come on out and support the Dark Horse team--either as a rider or spectator!!

We are open Monday - Saturday to schedule lessons and pony parties. Please call or email to set up an appointment. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to help groom and tack your horse before you ride. You should also allow an additional 15 minutes after your lesson has finished to groom, or hose your horse and cool them out properly before returning them to their pasture or stall. Riding is the fun part, but along with it comes some work! In case of inclement weather call before heading out to the barn, to ensure that rescheduling is not necessary. Please allow 24 hour notice if cancellation of a scheduled lesson is necessary, it helps us to keep things running more smoothly.

Lesson Fun... horses are forever entertaining!

We had our kickoff meeting of 2007 in the freezing cold Saturday February 17th. Congratulations to all of you who stuck it out!! Check out our calendar below for upcoming meetings and events.

Our Riding Club is back in full swing again. We had lots of fun last year with many exciting activities. Such as, a game of horse soccer, watching a “Cowboy Shoot” event, and experiencing part of the Parelli natural Horse*Man*Ship "For horse Lovers Only" Tour--WOW some of that stuff was amazing!! We had a blast and learned a ton! We plan on attending many more shows this year that we can participate in, as well as ones to watch, we will also be attending an open-house at a vet school, and much more!!

We meet once a month during the school year, and twice a month during the summer (on average). Improve your riding skills in a fun group setting, get to know other horse lovers, and learn all kinds of different horsemanship skills.

Meeting dues are $10 meeting fee, and $10 to rent a horse (per meeting), the price range varies for the other events we attend. You are not required to own a horse, but you must have one acessible to you for meetings.
**Expand your horse care and health knowledge.
**Set and achieve your horse goals.
**Experience many different avenues of the horse world.

Call Bekah to sign up for the next meeting, or for more information.
