        • Buck is offering his Colt Class as well as his Horsemanship class...these are opportunities you won't want to miss! Auditors welcome



        COLT CLASS: (ALL DAY Thurs & 9:00-12:00 Fri-Sun) 

        Buck has his own riders start the colts. Some of the finest hands in the country! The colts get the best start possible. Owners not only observe everything that gets done with their colts but interact with "their rider" throughout the process and questions answered by Buck. Rare opportunity for auditors to witness youngsters getting their first rides. Education, not force and violence. Doesn't get any better than this!

        HORSEMANSHIP CLASS: (Fri-SuN 1:30-4:30) 

        Under saddle class emphasizing classical and vaquero traditions. Guiding your horse becomes a dance of lightness, willingness and precision. All levels welcome.

        Total cost for each class series $750. Pre-registration and non-refundable deposit required. Click here for details on signing up.

        AUDITORS: *$30/day. No Pre-registration. Pay at venue. Seating area:  Bleachers or bring your own chair.  Umbrella recommended for sun/rain. Well behaved dogs on leash ok. NO BARKING!      

        *Seniors 65 and over and children under 12, no charge.
