Got a new colt to start? Just need to tune up Nelly or Chester for summer riding? We got just the thing! Lynn Semingson is going to start Justin’s new colt so we decided to invite a limited number of people to bring their horse and participate! You can bring your colt and/or any of your horses that may need a tune up or needs help with a problem and we will help you get them started the right way! Lynn started breaking horses at the age of 14. He has over 40 plus years of experience and a way with horses that makes him one of the best! Even if you can’t bring your horse you can come watch and learn! $250 for you and your horse, includes a custom made training halter. $10 per day for spectator. Now don’t worry about it being Easter weekend! We are planning on a cowboy church service on Sunday Morning and an Easter Egg hunt on Sunday! Our Rustics hold up to 6 people so bring your family or a group! Stalls and lodging are extra for this event. Reserve early as spots are limited and will fill up fast!
