The Joni Fitts School of Horsemanship
Seeking a way to share her love of the equine arts, Joni Fitts opened her school in 1980, living by the motto "Teaching is Our Business" while helping riders discover the nuanced craft of horsemanship. Her instructors—all of whom are certified by the American Riding Instructor Certification Program—lead students 6 and older in riding programs tailored to all skill levels, covering both English and Western riding styles. Programs are not breed specific, helping students get to know different horses' gaits, idiosyncrasies, and favorite seasons of The Real World.
In addition to running her school, Joni is also a certified CHA site visitor, a designation that lets her qualify aspiring ranches for accreditation by the Certified Horsemanship Association and the American Horse Sign Language Society.
