Dennis ThielThe essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire" Sharon Ralls Lemon. I truly believe there is a rare bond between horse and rider that only good horsemanship can create. I learned to ride at the age of 15 with a professional dressage trainer who eventually separated from the dressage world to join the family friendly sport of mounted shooting. This is who opened my eyes to many styles of riding including English, Western, Jumping, Polo, Trail riding, and even swimming with the horses. Since then I have earned many titles in Cowboy Mounted shooting including ladies Overall MSA World Champion, National, and Regional titles. I have a passion for teaching both horse and rider and have been training mounted shooting horses for the last 10 years. I instruct both English and Western style riding while incorporating fun and confidence in the rider and horse. I look forward to meeting you helping you meet your fullest potential!
