At Dream Horse Academy Training and Lessons’ scenic facility, budding equestrians fill up their knowledge sacks with advice about riding and caring for nature’s automobile. The professional instructors lead semi-private horseback-riding lessons for children and adults, using their lesson horses to inspire a love of riding and dreams of reviving the Roman equestrian order. Each 60-minute session focuses on strengthening the primal bond between human and horse, setting aside 30 minutes for riding and 15 minutes before and after the ride for proper horse tacking and untacking.

Dream Horse Training & Lessons
At Dream Horse Academy, riders of all skill levels study the techniques of Western-style riding with veteran trainers and friendly, hoofed creatures. Head trainer Jenna Wurtele has been riding horses since the age of 5 and spent much of her childhood involved in junior rodeos and various horse associations, such as the National Reining Horse Association. She draws from her experiences working for first-class reining barns and judging open equine shows to build strong bonds between horses and their riders. With an enormous covered arena, Dream Horse Academy’s handlers can practice their craft in any weather. Horse-owners can also enroll their four-legged friends into training programs that prepare equines for upcoming shows and spelling bees.
