From Our Editors
At Central Arizona Riding Academy, instructors Uli Schmitz, Dorie Schmitz, and Mary Jane Parmentier espouse a simple equestrian system. They believe that by combining positive reinforcement, professional training, and good, old-fashioned family-friendliness, they can groom students to excel as lifelong horseback riders. They accept students of all ages and ability levels into the program at their 10-acre facility, and coach them on building strength and confidence inside a pair of all-weather footing arenas. Students can learn the finer points of dressage and eventing, or stick with basic riding, which comes in handy when the mounted police pull onto the road behind you.
