What do We Offer?

Riding Lessons

Currently, riding lessons with Yvonne Welz are prioritized towards advanced beginner or intermediate students who are specifically interested in classical riding and/or bitless schooling. Private one-on-one lessons are priced at $75 per hour and include the use of one of our schoolhorses at our Queen Creek, Arizona facility. Yvonne also offers the (now rare) classical lunging lessons to develop your seat on the lungeline with no reins or stirrups.


We do have limited openings at the moment, but don’t be afraid to ask, even if you are a beginner!

Classes, Online Courses and More

We have plans for classes and online courses about bitless riding and schooling, natural horse care, barefoot trimming and more. Stay tuned!

Barefoot Hoof Trimming

James Welz has been a barefoot hoofcare professional since 2000. He was one of the first in the USA to receive a higher education in barefoot trimming, and one of the first to begin a full-time career as a barefoot-only professional. His trimming services are available for horseowners in the general Phoenix, Arizona area.
