Whether a lesson at Crossroads is for your benefit or that of the littlest pony in your familial stable, the jaunt out to Nolensville will be well rewarded with a scenic walk among Crossroads Ranch's 76 acres of lush, trail-laden landscape. Groupon customers are permitted to call ahead and schedule a lesson with a friend, so long as they each have a voucher and an affinity for horses.
Since settling into his first saddle at the age of 8, Josh Guin has dedicated his life to understanding and training horses, and helping others do the same at his scenic 76-acre ranch in Nolensville. Years of studying equine management, nutrition, and advanced training methods helped Josh craft his T.R.U.E. horse training philosophy, which is an acronym for trust, respect, unity, and expectations. After gaining the trust and respect of the horse, Josh establishes a bond with the beast, always keeping high expectations for the horse so it can live up to its potential. During lessons, Josh shows students how to approach horses with a similar mindset.
