The horse: energy, and motion and so very beautiful; strong and majestic and so very fragile; gentle and loving and so very perceptive. 

Our acquired knowledge of these magnificent creatures will never end. In their everyday care and our friendship with them and especially in training them, there is a limitless and never-ending amount of information to learn. We are committed to learning as much as we can about our horses. And we would like to share that information with you. Join us in this quest.
