Tony Vaught will be teaching maneuvers using a mechanical flag or “cow flag” and helping riders with Horsemanship on Saturday, March 6, 2021. 1-4pm.

80×150 indoor arena treated for dust.

The flag has a ton of benefits over cattle. We can control the speed and stop for the reward any time we like. Less pressure makes it so much easier to get basic moves started and improve on basic footwork. Less pressure also let’s us go to work on any brace in our horses. As we all know most fancy moves are just a combination of basics done with excellence.


Auditors welcome! $10/day.

Come ride with us!

For those who have indoor arenas, Mag Flakes is well worth the investment.

It keeps the dust down
Our arena is 80 x 152
Cost is around $800
Lasts about a year (if not longer)

How many of you use it? If not, check into it. The cost will be increasing; they use it on the roads.

Update  October 18, 2019

Our round pen located at the upper barn has been updated (10/17/19 – sand needs to settle) and Mag Flakes/dust control has been ordered for the Indoor Arena –  If you do not use Mag Flakes in your indoor arena, check it out.  It will save you many $$.
