About this pro

At 'Wild Horse Mountain Farms' we provide a safe learning experience for horseback riding and horsemanship lessons from ages 5 and up and we offer a variety of well-trained horses to learn from. 

At WHMF it's all about learning how to develop the connection between the horse the human. It is important to us that we teach with empathy and patience for both the horse and the person. 

Lessons are held in our 68' x 172' indoor lighted arena or come and learn how to ride the obstacles in our Internationally rated Mountain Trail Horse Park.  Learn how to ride over the suspension bridge, teeter-totter, balance beams, and water obstacles, which are just a few of the exciting training obstacles that we have to offer.  

We also take in clients' horses for training, problem-solving, and restarting all types of horses.   

We have wonderful and compassionate instructors that truly care about how you learn.  Wild Horse Mountain Farms is a safe and peaceful place and we can help you to learn how to have a trusting connection with your horse or to feel safe learning with one of ours. 

Our philosophy is that in order for a horse or a person to learn in a positive way, they must feel relaxed and able to trust.  This is how we build self-confidence in both the horse and the human.

We also host a variety of Equine Wellness related clinics and offer onsite accommodations for both horses and their people.

    Linda is a thoughtful, considerate, and through teacher - both for the horse and the student.

    Linda and Miriam are amazing and knowledgeable instructors, and WHMF is beautifully located. I especially love the extreme mountain trail park and the trails close to the barn. Highly recommended.

  • Teri & John Allen

    First of all the farm is lovely and has such a calm nurturing vib. Linda and trainer Miriam are fantastic teachers/trainers. They are about the horse, helping us help the horse and develop a partnership. We are learning so much and so are equines.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Safety always comes first at WHMF.  We begin by teaching the student how to catch their horse in the field.  To read the horse's body language, what are the eyes, ears, facial expressions, tail swishing, etc. are saying so they understand what the horse is thinking and how to keep the horse's focus on the student.  

Next, the student learns how to groom and tack up their horse and then proceed to in-hand groundwork manners before the student gets on the horse.  From there the student begins to work on balance and suppleness while learning how to connect with the horse through feel and timing.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have had horses all my life and have been working with horses for the past 30 years studying horsemanship.  I also host a variety of equine wellness clinics at WHMF, from bio-mechanics to pranic healing, and bring in the very best horsemanship and equitation clinicians.  At WHMF it's about the desire to continue to learn so that we may become a better partner to our horse.
