Instructor Justin Mott teaches the foundations of Western-style horsemanship to up to four students at a time. Each 60-minute class covers posture, walking, and trotting, with approximately 50 minutes spent riding. Lessons are available seven days a week, and both children and adults are welcome. On their next visit, students can put their skills to use with a 60-minute trek. Weekend 90-minute trail rides for adults end in a sampling of bartender-served wines and snacks.

JM Performance Horse

JM Performance Horse’s instructor, Justin Mott, grew up in the company of horses at his family’s ranch, first taking up reins at the age of 3. About eight years later, Mott handled his first horse in training. This experience prompted Mott to sharpen his understanding of natural horsemanship and study the works of Tom Dorrance, who emphasized the feel of the horse and its interplay with the handler. Today, Mott works upon the verdant hills and pastures of Sheridan Equestrian Center, training both horses and humans. In classes designed for students of all skill levels, the seasoned rider strengthens connections between man and beast while teaching posture, commands, and proper U-turn technique.
