Over the past several years, Nancy has worked hard to create a unique learning environment where she can share her love of natural horsemanship and central Florida with others. Set in the heart of Florida's Lake and Prairie Region, Nancy's facilities stretch from Tiger Lake in the west to an area of open dry prairie consisting of several thousand acres with trails for riding and exploring this wilderness.
Onsite, Nancy has an arena with a 60' round pen and an extensive obstacle trail for you and your horse to challenge yourself and learn new skills. The new Cowboy Cabin allows students to stay onsite, which helps create an immersive learning experience. If you have you own trailer or enjoy tent camping, Nancy has facilities for that too. For the horses, there are shaded pens and a pasture for turnout .
Lessons with Nancy
Choose from either private or group lessons to rapidly advance your skills. Private lessons are one-on-one training with you and your horse, allowing you to get personalized coaching to help you get the most out of your relationship with your horse.
In group lessons, Nancy works with a number of clients simultaneously moving between them as they need help.
One great way to test the abilities of both yourself and your horse is on the new Cowboy Camp Obstacle Trail.
The trail offers a range of challenges for you to work out issues before you encounter them in the wild.
Each obstacle has a range of skill levels from easy to hard.
Check the calendar for available times.
Affordable, overnight stays are possible onsite at the Cowboy Cabin. Rent a single bedroom with access to the kitchen and laundry facilities, or rent the whole cabin and bring your friends.
Make the most of your time a Nancy's Cowboy Camp by staying onsite. You can prepare your own meals and soak in the hot tub on the screened porch.
Bring your horse in for foundation training or just a tune up!
Nancy typically takes only one horse at a time which allows for a high level of focused training with that horse.
Horses are accepted by the week. At the end of the training time, Nancy will show you how to maintain the progress she has made with your horse.
Ride through the Dry Prairie to the east of Nancy's property all the way to the shore of lake Kissammee. The gate to the wilderness trails is just behind the arena.
Nancy is a national trail riding champion. She will be your guide and can offer some suggestions for the challenges you may face along the way. This is real world trail sports.
Sometimes we need to get away and we can't take our horses with us. So if you're planning a cruise to Alaska or a business trip to Europe, Nancy can help you with your horse while you're away so you don't have to worry about a thing.
Check out the horse sitting page for all the details.
Workshops are available which focus on a number of common topics such as improving your riding skills, building safety and confidence, trailer loading and much more. At times, Nancy offers workshops that correspond to the levels of the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program, targeted to help you advance to the next level of the program.
