At Witherspoon Ranch Arena, it's not just about getting students into the saddle. Before tender-footed equestrians mount up, instructors work to lay the foundation, teaching fundamental horse-care and handling skills. Beginning by catching, grooming, and learning to saddle and bridle the horse, students become comfortable working around the animals, and build a solid basis from which to advance. But lessons aren't just for beginners; the trainers at Witherspoon Ranch Arena also trot into more advanced, specialized territory, such as calf-roping and barrel racing, which can be put to use during their regularly held rodeos.
