About Us

We are a community-based management company that makes consistent efforts to reach out to the local community.  While that local community has been Austin for three and a half years, we are now creating opportunities for individuals in Houston and surrounding areas.  We love to travel, and we are so excited to be moving eastward through Houston and toward Crystal Beach, Beaumont, and out west to Lajitas and beyond!  If you have a dream horse vacation in mind, then WE want to talk to YOU!  We love collaborating, thinking outside of the box, and getting out in the world (before developers consume it all!).

Volunteer Opportunities

We understand that learning to ride takes a huge time and financial commitment.  That’s why we offer packages to regulars who want to learn all the ins and outs of horseback riding.  Even with packages, some families or adults may not be able to afford riding.  We have a volunteer program to help you.

Have extra time and looking to spend it outdoors, with horses and friendly faces?  We have space for two more regular volunteers in  Austin, and we are regularly accepting volunteers who are trying to work down the cost of their one-time ride in Austin and Houston.  We strive to make riding accessible for all!  To find out more, simply land that mouse right here.

Lockhart, tx and San Marcos are on our list.  If you live in the area and would like us to come to you OR if you’d like to start some volunteer hours for us in Lockhart or San Marcos and earn some ride time, get in touch!

Special Needs Services

We cater to individuals of all ages and skills.  Our horseback riding services are ideal for individuals with special needs who do not need the assistance of riding gear to stay upright.

We do happily provide sidewalkers when necessary, and have aided a variety of individuals with special needs from blind and low vision, hearing impaired, spectrum disorders and a variety of social, learning and physical challenges.

For general information, please contact us directly.

Trainer Joan Marie MacCoy has worked with spectrum individuals for over 10 years.  Her work began in North Carolina as a tutor and habilitation technician for children and young adults with autism and spectrum disorders.  Because of her patience, consistency, firm directions and clear ability to communicate with a wide variety of individuals, MacCoy is adept at helping children and adults with autism on the path of self-improvement through work with horses and riding experiences.  For more information about our services for spectrum individuals, click here.

Horseback riding in Lockhart, Tx

We have trailered to Mckinney Roughs and Pundt Park in Houston, and now we are looking for our newest adventures in the Lockhart, San Marcos and Buda, TX areas.  If you have some light to shed on good ranch riding or parks that are open to equestrians, and you would like to be part of an exploratory ride (with lower rates due to the exploratory nature), please contact us.  We are looking to the Lockhart area for future ranch ride possibilities, and we want to hear from you!

Horseback riding in Killeen, Tx

We are so excited to be offering rides at Parrie Haynes Ranch in Killeen.  Looking for a shorter horseback riding experience?  They’ve got the Tigger Trail just for you!  Want something a bit more in-depth?  This facility is THE PLACE to go if you are looking for overnight camping opportunities, special group trail events and part and full-day trails.
