Training & Boarding


WRS specializes in the training and showing of Quarter Horses, but we have experience with many breeds and discplines and welcome all. We aim to train equines to provide a pleasant and safe riding and showing experience.

Our training philosophy revolves around helping horses discover and develop their potential through patience and respect.

A normal training schedule consists of daily riding five days a week by a trainer as well as lessons with the client aboard.

Training is based on the client's needs and the horse's ability. Click here to see a list of WR trainers.

Although WRS specializes in Quarter Horses, we welcome any breed! Boarding includes full care of your equine from daily stall cleaning to individual daily turnout (at no additional fee!). Horses receive hay three times a day and grain two to three times a day as needed. WRS can accommodate each client's and horse's individual needs including, but not limited to: supplements, medicines, other nutritional requirements, turnout needs, blanketing, etc. Each 10'x12' matted stall is designed for the comfort and safety of the horse. Stalls located on the exterior walls of the barn feature large windows that allow horses a view to the outside and provide excellent ventilation. Our knowledgeable staff and employees are present to oversee your horse's safety and well-being and are capable of addressing any emergencies. The presence of the owners on the property provide further assurance of security and quality of care.

Boarding - $825/mo.
