Earn your riding lessons (English or Western) or learn how to drive miniature horses and join our driving drill team.
Owner/Instructor is certified and has taught for 40 years. Have numerous students with hi-point awards from various local shows and some have gone on to major breed shows and received many awards.
Ride for fun or get a good start for serious showing at a more affordable rate or just show for fun at the local show facility (Spring Grove Horse Fair park).
We also ride and show speed (barrel racing), do some drill (team took 1st at first competition at Walworth Co fair) and go on trail rides.
There are about 5 parades to participate in during the year, including the televised Chgo parade on Thanksgiving morning (check youtube for clips from past years).
Horses are well trained, but not 'push button', so you can learn how to be a rider, not a passenger.
We have minis at different levels of driving and you can drive for pleasure, try a cones course or learn to drive with the drill team and try out for the MHF performance!
