    Our beginner and intermediate students ride wonderful lesson horses and study horsemanship while developing their riding skills with RRA's outstanding assistant instructors. This combination makes it possible to take the most beginner riders of any age through an organized, progressive program of lessons that, for some, can culminate in horse ownership, horse show exoeriences, clinics, and even going to World Championships in Westgern Dresage on our World Champion horses. No matter the age of the rider, our lessons are safe, fun, and educational. Private OR group lessons are available.

    "I am so very impressed with Michelle's knowledge and style of teaching. I have worked with and seen a lot of coaches and teachers over the years, but seldom have I seen a teacher with the passion she has and the ability to get the students to visualize and perform the skills she teaches them. She is the best teacher and Vinny along with the other students are very lucky to have her as their instructor." J.S., Spokane, WA
