Something Wild Riding School
Melinda has been around horses her entire life starting from her first pony as a toddler. As the youngest of 8 kids and the only one involved in horses today, it was clear to see from day one that there was passion for them. Now, years later, we have travelled to competitions all over the country, and world.
She has a multi-discipline background spending time with trainers of many different ideologies but the most important thing that Melinda has tried to focus on is respect of the horse and creating the best athlete possible. From horsemanship trainers, to top trainers in dressage, reining, jumping, obstacles, colt starting, paso fino (gaited), and more, Melinda has taken away something from everyone to include in her toolbox today for both horse and rider.
Now, with her own daughter at the heart of inspiration, Melinda is setting out to once again create a program for riders to learn, focusing on safety and an understanding for the horse first and foremost.
The Most Important Part
We have an amazing mixture of both gaited horses and trotting horses to ride. Every horse offers a challenge to their rider whether that challenge is simply learning the ins and outs of riding or full on personality quirks.
On top of being a fun ride, most of our horses are smaller in stature which makes them perfect mounts for kids to learn as they are less intimidating. Several of our horses are competitive having won or placed in national level competition. Our favorites are our paso fino horses, we love to share them with everyone.
We have also added horses larger in stature to our school program including 3 thoroughbred boys who are ready to teach even our adult riders.
