Horse Program

Talented instructors, quality horses, first class facilities and a commitment to excellence makes the Vista Verde Horse Program really unique.

Quality horses and in-depth instruction

The Vista Verde riding program and has helped our guests far exceed their expectations in regards to how much they can learn in a week. From both demonstrating what our trainers are teaching our young horses to helping you learn how to better communicate with your own horse during one of our many clinics, you might find that you never want to leave the arena because you’re having too much fun!

We have invested in a breeding and training program as well, to help ensure that we are bringing in the next generation of fabulous horses for our guests. We breed some of our well-pedigreed mares each year to our own stallion and are enjoying the wonderful foals as they grow up at the ranch. As a guest, you can enjoy seeing these foals as they are born and begin the training process. Often times our training staff are working the young horses while they are teaching you to work with and train your own horse. It’s just amazing how much there is to learn about horses, and our team are here to share that with you.

Everyday the ranch offers a different and interesting clinic or horseback experience that can be great learning experiences for novices and experts alike. Our training staff have developed a variety of different clinics to explore the different aspects of horsemanship, and are suitable to all riding levels.  From basic horsemanship clinics to more focused cattle work clinics as well as some that are just focused on bringing it all together through fun games, you can expand your horsemanship knowledge dramatically through the week.

Facilities

There has been an extensive investment in the facilities and horses to make the Vista Verde Horse Program top notch. The full-size heated Indoor Riding Arena allows for year round riding in comfort. The Mare Barn gives our breeding stock a comfortable and quiet place to deliver and raise the foals. As a guest, you’ll enjoy the benefits of these great facilities in your riding experiences.

Horsemanship Clinics

Various times throughout the year Horsemanship Retreats are offered at Vista Verde Ranch. These are in addition to our on-going riding program which always offers the opportunity for clinics and lessons. The Horsemanship Retreats are intensive riding experiences, focusing on either specific techniques for the competitive rider or general horsemanship skills for the rider looking to improve their overall skills.  Click here for more information on dates and rates.
